We use confluence for technical documentation
Now the company wants to use it as an intranet, after our recomendation.
But to our shock, confluence seems to have no intranet features at all.
How does one conduct a poll? This is the most basic feature which all the free wiki/CMSs (e.g. drupal, mambo, joomla, phpnuke, wordpress etc) have.
The only thing I can find is a paid for survey plugin which costs $500, which is completely out of reach for a small company just to ask to vote where to have a the christmas party.
Any ideas? It has to be free.
It would be a shame to have to manage confluence AND another wiki system just of the intranet.
You may also want to try my Polls plugin, which lets you create simple polls to make choices or schedule events within Confluence: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.simplenia.confluence.plugins.polls
I've created a ticket with Atlassian requesting they create an in-built macro for polling in Confluence. I'm amazed this is not already a feature. Please go and vote for the ticket! The more votes the more likely they are to make this change.
We are currently running Confluence 4.4.5 and the survey plugin works as designed, even though it's not explicity marked for this version. Although it seems it is only able to complete single-select and we're looking to incorporate multi-select options. I know the polls plugin includes this functionality, but I don't think we'd be able to justify the cost. Does anyone know of a way to incorporate multi-select options somehow using the survery plugin?
With "Polls and Questions For Confluence", you can add polls, set up colors and options, like one or multiple votes per person. End a vote and notify voters. I hope it will help.
