Description & Goals

Summary

A poll is a research tool that helps explain what a group of people think about a topic. Poll Builder allows you to create your own poll, collect votes, examine the results and think about what they mean. Users can write original opinion poll questions and answer choices, then invite friends to vote in their poll via the mesh.

This is a WorldWideWorkshop project - see the WorldWideWorkshop wiki page.

Current Features:

  • Polls are stored in the Data Store and accessible via the Journal
  • Can share a poll with a buddy (shares application and current data) who can vote on it from their XO
  • Polls can be multiple times (e.g. X can share it with Y who can share it with Z).
  • Uses Telepathy for interacting with other XOs
  • Updates all XOs that are sharing the activity with current data (while Poll is being shared)
  • When receiving data, author's activity eliminates duplicates and updates votes with the latest vote from a given XO
  • Ability to create multiple polls, each with a title, question, 2-5 answer choices and a "votes to collect" limit
  • Display running total with number of votes (numeric tally) and percentage of total votes cast (bar graph) for each answer
  • Ability to “Delete” the Poll
  • Ability to “See Results’ after the Poll closes
  • Set of customized Lesson Plans accessible in-app via "Lesson Plans" button
  • More mesh status messages (alerting users to load progress and friend actions) will be added
  • Multiple translations will be available (English, Portuguese and Spanish to start)

Issue Reports

Note: Please log issues or bugs in Trac

Downloaded and installed the latest Poll builder, on the XO Laptop (G1G1, MP build 650). Using jabber server of 'jabber.xochat.org'

  • I created a poll and then shared the Activity to 'Neighborhood'.
  • When went into Neighborhood View and on each XO Icon 'Invite to Poll Builder'. (approx 15 to 20 people)
  • Left running over night (about 8 hours).
  • Opened Poll builder to discover a mess.

Comments

  • Looks like everyone who visited my Poll Builder auto-magically created a '<nickname> favorite color?' poll.
  • It was difficult to figure out which poll was mine.
  • No way to remove polls, or scroll down the long list of polls (at least 10, maybe 15 ?)
  • Allowed multi votes per poll, my own and others.
  • No 'enter other choice here' data entry box
  • No way to view data other than chart.
  • No method for more than one question at a time.

Let me know, if you want me to do some further testing with a new version... Thanks, --ixo 07:23, 6 January 2008 (EST)

  • Logged scrolling bug 6022.
  • Fixed in Poll-16.xo --morgs 08:11, 7 March 2008 (EST)
  • Multiple votes per poll is a feature not a bug, to enable children to collect votes from non XO users.
  • Otherwise this implements a basic 2-5 answer poll like on many websites.
  • The auto-created poll is confusing, I agree. It provides a quick demo with only a few laptops but I can see how for many laptops it is a problem. I'll remove that in the next release.
