Blocks ::: block_poll
Maintained by Adam Olley
Allows you to create custom polls for use in a Moodle course. A course can have many polls created within it; you can then choose which one to display through the block configuration tabs.


Moodle 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4
Released: Monday, May 22, 2017, 7:57 AM

This release includes a hot fix for mysql compatibility that prevented the display of the number of responses.

If you use MySQL as your database engine and previously updated to v3.1.0.2 of poll, you'll want to update to this new version.
