The need for a polling bot
La Poll function It was recently added by Telegram and gives you a way to create effective content, but not all that glitters is gold. In fact, you will immediately realize by trying this function that this is extremely limited, bound to the simple question and answer. To get more advanced results you need to use the Poll bots, extremely efficient and with interesting features.
But what is a Telegram Bot? You've certainly heard of Bots, but maybe you've never trusted fully to prove their potential.
A Bot is nothing more than a Telegram digital user capable of interacting with individuals in channels, groups and single chats. A Bot can help you track a shipment or simply monitor the market and cost of a product.
As for these functions you will find many others for surveys, by going to the Telegram Bot Store site you will have the opportunity to choose and try many for free, both in Spanish and foreign languages if you come from another country.
In the search bar of the Store, all you have to do is type the word Polls, or in English Poll, read reviews and descriptions of companies and consumers. If you are reading this article you probably do not have so much desire to research and experiment with random products, for this reason we would like to recommend you three extremely effective Bots: VoteBot (@vote), Net Promoter Score (@netpsbot) e QuAnBot (@QuAnBot).
If you don't necessarily want to rely on third party sources you can create a survey completely from scratch according to your needs. But that deserves a separate article.
Let's add a Bot on Telegram for polls
Found your favorite Bot, you need to add it to Telegram in order to use it. If you are using Telegram from a tablet or smartphone, just follow these instructions:

- At the top right, touch the magnifying glass symbol and type in the search field the bot you want to use by prefixing the bot name with the chiocciola (e.g. @VoteBot).
- If you have installed Telegram on your personal computer, just click in the field Search at the top left and select the name of the Bot as in the previous case.

How to change the vote of a poll on Telegram

I'm sorry to inform you that once you have chosen a certain answer, you will never be able to go back. You could close and cancel the survey and then create a whole new one with the same question, but it's a strictly personal choice.
