Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating voting buttons in a message, part of Outlook 2013 Essential Training.
A neat feature in Microsoft Outlook is the ability to include Voting buttons in an email.…This way, you can poll your users without having you do any sort of tallying yourself.…To create a vote, you go into your Inbox and choose New Email from the Home Ribbon Tab.…Click on To…and address the email to any Outlook user you want to send the vote to, …you can even choose yourself.…When you're all done, click OK and put in a Subject line, then go down to the…Body of the email and you can type it just like any other message.…
When you're all done, go to the Options Ribbon Tab and choose Use Voting buttons.…Outlook gives you some canned choices, but you can also go down to Custom, from…here we can put in as many choices as we want, as long as they're separated by a semicolon.…The last option doesn't have to have to have a semicolon, when you're all done,…hit Close and you're ready to send your email.…Now I sent it to myself, so I can show you what it looks like when you actually…get a Vote in an email.…
