By a show of hands, how many of you have ever needed to quickly poll your coworkers? Maybe it is taking lunch orders for your next meeting or maybe it is a yes or no on a proposal you are making, these fast and easy polls come up constantly in the workplace. If you are using Slack at work, then conducting these polls has never been easier, or more fun than with emoji voting.

1. Write out the question in the slack channel
2. Add a reaction to your post with the appropriate reaction emojis (thumbs up and thumbs down tend to work well)
3. Everyone can vote by simply clicking on the emoi that represents their choice!
