You can create the register of voters for your Live Voting in the POLYAS Online Voting Manager. The list should include every participant with voting rights.
1. Upload the list of eligible voters
The easiest way to create the register of voters is to import the list as an Excel file. First click the “Voters” tab and then the gear-wheel icon. A new window opens up. Click on the “Import” tab in the left sidebar. You can now drag and drop your register into the window, so uploading it to the Online Voting Manager. We recommend that you create the Excel file using our practical template. It is available for download from the same window.
After downloading, you just have to set the column names and determine which of the attributes of the eligible voters should be used as the ID (e.g. the e-mail address). The ID and a password generated by POLYAS together are the login data to the Live Voting, and they are sent to your eligible voters with their invitation.
If you have booked the “Ballot Weighting” feature, you must now add the corresponding attribute to your register. More >
2. Enter eligible voters manually
If the number of eligible voters is low, you can enter them into the POLYAS Online Voting Manager individually. Simply add the people and their data line by line. Just press the Enter key to create each new line. To delete a row, move the mouse cursor onto the relevant line and click the arrow on the right-hand side.
To create additional columns, click on the gear-wheel icon and then on “Attributes”.
3. More functions of the register
The following settings are also available:
