    Hi There,

    Is there a way to show the combined results across multiple polls?

    For Example

    Poll 1: A or B <-- Answer: A
    Poll 2: A or B <-- Answer: B
    Poll 3: A or B <-- Answer: A
    Poll 4: A or B <-- Answer: A

    Results:
    A: 3 B: 1

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi there, I saw your tweet, and I was like "didn't he post on our forums?" I am not an expert in our Polls add-on yet, but from what I understand, there isn't a way to do what you want built-in. Each poll is handled independently. You could use PHP to count answers, but you would be creating a customization for which the add-on wasn't developed for. Can you give me more information on why you would want to do this? Maybe I can think of another way to give you what you want?

    You could maybe use our Quiz Add-on - http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Quiz_Add-On

    The Idea is that we have 2 people giving 5 rounds of presentations and a panel judging (who will access the polls) whose presentation is better. I'll call them James and Lucy.

    There is to be a public screen that displays how many times James has won and how many times Lucy has won. The display need to be updated between each round. In the background we need to record how the judges voted.

    Except the last part the Polls plugin has been superb.

    Yeah, you would have to custom code this yourself, as it isn't something in the add-on. Someone with intermediate PHP knowledge, and a good understanding of databases, should be able to create what you want.

    Thanks for the heads up, I could write it myself but was hoping for a cheeky shortcut and also thought the information would be useful for others.
