What is the Syndicated Polling Widget?


Syndicated Polling Widget
Oracle B2C Service, May 2011 and newer


Beginning in May 2011 release, you can add the ability to create single question surveys (a poll) on Customer Portal pages or to syndicate those questions to external sites, especially high traffic customer pages.

This feature will leverage the customer portal syndicated widget framework to create a one question polling survey that can be added to any page on the web. This will give you the ability to create a widget that will ask a question, then on submit, show either the results for that question or show a thank you message. This will enable the feedback product to have a presence outside of the basic survey functionality.

The widget is the end-user facing poll appearing on the customer's web site. The appearance of the widget is completely customizable via CP CSS (Customer Portal Cascading Style Sheets) and attributes as well as the question editor.  You can add charts to the poll results.
