Tiki has several features for gathering feedback from site visitors. Polls, are a simple one question "straw vote". Surveys can be viewed as "extended" polls, and Trackers are a do pretty much anything "forms" kind of feature, which includes much more powerful and customized surveys based on trackers. Which do you want to use? For some simple surveys, a poll may be enough. When you want to be more precise about your users' opinions and still an easy way to create and view their results and statistics, you need to create a survey. When survey feature is limited for your needs, then you can make your very customized survey using Trackers and their Plugins.

A survey is a collection of several questions. Statistics based on the answers are stored and may be viewed later. Surveys have been enhanced in Tiki13

Trackers, Polls and Surveys can be inserted into wiki pages via plugins.
