This application is a very simple multiple choice poll similar to doodle. It supports voting without edit rights.

Home page

In order to access the home page of the application, the users have to look for Polls entry in the Applications panel located by default in the left panels section of the page:

The home page lists all the existing polls in a livetable where the general info, like the winning result/s, is displayed for each of them. The livetable is filterable and sortable which makes it easier to query.

Recent Polls Macro

This macro also lists the most recent created polls, but, unlike the livetable, no actions can be performed on this list. There are 2 ways of using a macro in a wiki page as also described in Writing Macros documentation:

Using the macro from WYSIWYG editor

Edit a wiki page in WYSIWYG mode and look in the tool bar for the icon (XWiki Macro) then search for Recent Polls and set the number of polls to be displayed.

Using the macro from wiki editor (code)

Edit the page in wiki mode and write the following code snippet:

{{pollsrecent limit=10 /}}

Where the macro parameter limit is the maximum number of polls that you want to be displayed on your page. Its default value is 5.
If, instead, you don't want to set a maximum number of polls, remove the limit parameter and all of them will be displayed.

This is how it will look like before adding polls:

And after adding them:
