Homaro is a platform that makes it easy to create simple user polls, or Studies, to collect opinion data from participants. Participants choose from a set of Options according to your specified criteria and then provide a written explanation for their choice. Participants may also be asked to judge options based on a set of attributes and assign them scores.

Once a study has completed and collected responses from participants, the results are compiled and organized into charts and tables for analysis.
