Support » Plugin: GD Topic Polls for bbPress » Download voting results incl. the votes list

  • Hello Milan,
    it would be very useful if (only) the privileged users who are allowed to create polls could also download the voting results including the votes details – list of voters’ full names and their responses. Ideally, there could be a button “Download results” displayed under the viewed results to initiate download of some printable format. Perhaps, it might also prompt for an optional text included in the header of the downloaded document.
    Regards,
    Stefan.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the suggestion Stefan. Pro version of the plugin can display the list of users (user avatars) under each response, and I might consider adding the export feature too, but that would be for Pro version only. It is rather complex features, and with limited usability, so it is better suited for Pro version.

    Regards,
    Milan

    OK… 🙁
    As I mentioned in previous topic, there is wrong version set as current on wordpress.org. Whenever someone installs anew or upgrades this plugin using standard WP procedure the older version 1.0 keeps stuck.

    Regarding voting details export usability:
    The purpose of voting is to make some decision and the initiator of voting is organizing it to receive this decision so he can perform in accordance. And he needs the voting details as a documentation or proof that such decision has been made.
    Regarding this feature complexity: perhaps, it might be easy to read the data from the database and export it as a simple CSV file(?)

    I can’t do anything about the wrong version, update/install process is completely controlled by the WordPress.org.

    As for the export, you can always export data manually. But, to make the feature look good and be presentable, it is not just the simple export, it needs to be prepared.

    You are right, the exported voting results should be nice formated, in pdf. And should also contain date/time of voting of each voter.
    I have another suggestion for the pro version: optional signature field where each voter would sign his vote, like e.g. the Contact Form 7 Signature Addon.
    And the export shall also contain the signatures graphics.
    Stefan.

    Thanks for the suggestion, this will be added to the features request list.

    Stefan/Milan this is a cool suggestion… the only thing to take into consideration for the feature is that there are lots of laws and regulations in the document signing/electronic signature space in order to keep a document UETA/ESIGN compliant. We have a CF7 add-on that might be able to hook into the voting but it might be over kill for what you guys need since it would require the our whole application in conjunction with the voting plugin + cf7. Really depends on the legality purposes of the signatures being collected. Hope that two cents helps 🙂
