Everything in the email marketing realm requires testing, and ballots in the Higher Logic Thrive Marketing Professional (Thrive Marketing Professional) Voting module are no exception. Before you lock down your ballot and get ready for your vote, make sure you take the time to test it so that your voters see what you intend them to see!
- Navigate to Modules > Voting > View.
- Hover over the menu icon for a ballot and click Preview. The ballot opens in a new browser window. (NOTE: You may have to disable your pop-up blocker to view the ballot.)
- Proceed through your ballot, answering all necessary questions.
When you are finished, you'll receive a confirmation, "The on-screen preview of the ballot is complete."
Alternative testing method
There is an alternative and effective method for testing your ballots: publishing to yourself. After you create a ballot, you can test the mailing in your own inbox. Likewise, you can send to a test group to do the same!
When you have completed testing, you should clear your results. Hover over the menu icon and click Clear Answers to erase your test results.
