    Are you sure this information is correct? I am in the uk and have just tried the poll feature.

    You say “You can add as many options for your question but it recommended to keep it less than 10 options.” but I am strictly limited to 10 answers. No more unless the poll is open. I am trying to get 30 answers in those fields with no option for additional answers to be added. Could you please confirm to see that this is possible and mail me?

    Many thanks,


    • Add the first add 10 option , Then check the box ” Allow anyone to add options” to allow users for adding more options to your ask the question.
      now click on the question again to see the options and the end of options you can add as many option as you like now!
