Testing Your Poll

Last Updated: Sep 02, 2015 05:20PM PDT

After defining the questions and settings for your poll, you can test it by simulating incoming messages to make sure it works as you expect before sending it out to real users.

From your Services page, click Test Services:

Then, type the message you want to simulate, and click the Send SMS button, as shown below:

When you simulate a message, the simulated phone shows the actions that Telerivet performed in response to the message, including any SMS replies that would have been sent if the message were real.

If your poll has multiple questions, you can simulate responding to each of the questions in sequence.

Note that when simulating incoming messages, Telerivet still observes your poll's settings for allowed respondents and multiple responses. When testing your poll, it may be convenient to edit the settings to allow anyone to submit the poll multiple times.

When you simulate poll responses, they will show in your results the same as if they were real responses:

To remove the simulated responses from your results, click on the link showing the number of responses, select the simulated rows from the data table, and delete them.
