    Microsoft Forms is needed to create a poll in Microsoft Teams. Check with your admin to see if it is enabled in your environment. If so, below are the directions to create a poll in Microsoft Teams.

    1. Go to the Teams channel or chat window where the poll will reside. At the bottom, click the Forms icon. It looks like a little sheet of paper with an F on it.
    2. Forms will open. Add your questions and options. Toggle Multiple answers if you want people to be able to choose more than one answer.
    3. Click Next to preview your poll. If everything looks OK, click Send and your poll will be uploaded to the Team or Channel you are working in. If not, click on Edit and you will be taken back to the first screen.
