Your Outlook for Mac, Outlook for Windows, and Outlook on the web (desktop) users will soon be able to create a poll  within Outlook without needing to find-and-install an add-in.

  • For Outlook for Mac, users will find Poll on the Message tab. After a user pins the add-in, it will appear under the contextual toolbar.
  • For Outlook on the web, when users create a new email message, they can access the add-in under “…” > Poll.
  • For Outlook for Windows, users can access Poll either via Insert tab > Poll or via Options tab > Use Voting Buttons > Poll.

What about the Quick Poll add-in?

If your Mac and Outlook for the web users have downloaded the Quick Poll add-in, they will need to uninstall it at https://outlook.office365.com/ecp/ in order to use the pre-installed Poll add-in.
