I know we have a "Forum Search" for the forums. How about a "Poll Search" for the polls? I think this will help to see if there is already been a poll on a certain subject before we go and suggest it.

Best Regards,

You can see the past polls Jan 18, 2008


When you click on "Quick Polls" under the "Community" tab at the top of the home page, a list of all the previous polls appears.

I suppose a poll search feature as you have suggested might be faster.

Best regards,

There are now too many past polls (currently 39 pages of them, and 16 pages of dicussions) to be able to check them all in a reasonable time. A poll search feature would be useful.

Hi Crystal,

I think this has been suggested already (I am not 100% sure, but I somehow remember something similar posted in the forums).

I can think of at least 2 possibilities:

1) Make a separate search tool within the poll area.

2) Include a poll checkbox option in the general search field that appears on the right top corner of the home page:

Let's hope this time the Proz.com technical team/management takes it seriously into account.
