Hey @Jörg Supe and @Malwina,

To create a poll with emojis, all you need to do is create a regular open text or word cloud poll and ask your participants to use emojis in their answers. There is no need to create a special emoji poll, whenever participants write their answers, they’re able to use emojis.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have further questions :)
