Major Poll Asset bug

Kevin M. Cox 6 months ago in BLOX Total CMS 0

To our frustration, we've stumbled across a major shortcoming of Poll Assets this week.

Apparently any change to a poll asset (such as changing the section) resets the poll back to zero for all options. There is no warning in the GUI about this.

Also because the answer counts are not editable by the admin there is no way to restore the previous counts from the asset's revision history prior to the reset.

We're now stuck hoping that Town News engineering can merge the pre-reset and post-reset counts together for these assets so we aren't left with egg on our faces and the inability to announce these results to our readers.

• This behavior needs to be corrected. Admins should be able to change minor things about a poll asset without having the counts reset.

• Poll counts should be editable by admins, maybe ones with a certain level of permissions?

• As with other assets, there needs to be an easier way to restore a revision.

• As Jacki mentioned in this post, poll assets need an end date that stops collecting responses but still displays the results.

What other improvements to poll assets would y'all like to see?
