Table of Contents
You can create polls for your users on a variety of topics. This is a great way to increase employee engagement.
Users can add topics to content and Feed posts to group the same type of content together. Topics are also searchable. Note that Simpplr's current topic selection only supports English.
You can see all the topics on the Manage topics page.
Create a mind map for your people to intuitively find what they're looking for when browsing sites or content. A good starting point for creating and aligning site categories is to input them into a spreadsheet and run the grouping by a few users to see if the alignment makes sense.
Site categories are normally left to Site owners to decide since they should best organize their content and how their colleagues think about it. Consider popularity of certain departments or teams (Sales or HR may warrant their own categories, for example).
It’s critical for Site managers to understand the importance of building and maintaining their sites.

Understanding user consumption behavior
Now that you’re about three months post-launch, we recommend you start thinking about surveying your users for their feedback on the Intranet.
Feel free to integrate these questions with a pulse survey or annual performance reviews, so as to avoid survey-fatigue
Click the link to the survey template below. Download a copy and use it for your team.
For the next 60-90 days, we recommend you think about:
- What’s in Intranet Phase II?
- How are you going to measure the success of your intranet?
Next, check out our six month review article. We'll discuss how you're measuring success and some best practices going forward after the first year of your intranet.
Hi! How can I see the results of a poll? I see the number of votes, but don't see the options chosen. Also, can we see who voted on each option? Thanks!
Hi Xili. Currently there is no way to see the individual names of users who voted and how they voted in a Poll. And the only way to see poll results is to navigate to your feed post to see the new numbers. Hit Refresh to make sure you're seeing the most up to date stats.
You could see results of a poll-type survey through a sentiment check tied to a published piece of content if your org is using the Employee Listening suite.
Thanks Matthew, but I can't see the bars in each option to understand what was voted either. Am I missing clicking somewhere to see the options chosen? Thanks!
Xili, could you drop a screenshot to show me what you're seeing? That may make it easier to figure out what's going on.
Sure! I would like to see the bars for each option, but can't seem to find how...
Ah okay! So you actually need to vote on it yourself to see the results. I know that's not ideal, but I'll let our Product team know that this could be a product enhancement.
Thanks! And yes, that would be a great update to this very useful feature.
