Overview

ViralSweep supports contest voting, so users can vote on submissions within a gallery. We offer two forms of voting, a public vote, or a restricted vote that requires email address and or name.

Public Vote Example (click an image to vote)
Restricted Vote Example (click a video to vote)

Setup

To modify your voting settings, edit the campaign and go to Gallery > Voting.

Voting Options

User voting
Turn user voting on or off manually, or set automatic start and end times for voting. If you set start and end times for voting, the voting buttons will automatically appear and disappear based on the set times.

Voting frequency 
We currently support the follow options for voting frequency:

  • One time only
  • One time per day
  • One time per photo/video
  • One time per photo/video per day
  • Event mode (one vote per device)*
  • Event mode (one for per photo/video per device)*

*Event mode is to be used for in person voting, where people are all voting from the same network or IP address. A typical use case is an internal company contest, and everyone is casting a vote from their own device at the office.

Collect Voter Info 

This feature is only available on our Business and Premium plans.

By default, voting is a public vote based on users location, device, and IP address.

If you enable the voter info option, you can collect a combination of email, name, and add an opt-in box. Voters will not be able to cast a vote without providing their information. 

We provide all information collected for each vote, which you can find under Entrants > Moderate > Voter Log (top right corner). 

Show # of votes a submission has
This option allows you to show or hide the number of votes a submission has. If you enable it, the vote count will appear on the photo/video in the gallery, as well as on the zoomed view.

Require captcha for voting
This option allows you to require a voter to complete captcha before their vote can be cast.
