    Is it possible to individually track the responses if you send it to a distribution list?

    Hello
    Is it possible to make in some way that respondents who are answering, could also see voting results ( tracking) in the same way as sender see this ?

    Please tell me I can add a recipient to a voting poll after the original Poll was sent??? I cannot simply forward the original email to a new recipient....I lose the voting results. There should be a way to do it but it appears that you cannot. This is very powerful as sometimes you need to add people to a poll later on that you might have forgotten.

    Can I move the sent email to my inbox or other folder for ease of viewing?

      Whenever I've tried this it loses the ability to track responses. Bit of an oversight as the sent item gets harder to find by the minute and some things you need to keep the record of responses for sometime.

    I'm not getting a Show group in the Message ribbon when I check the sent email. I had copied myself on the original email, and I voted in my own poll -- so I know there was at least one response. No Tracking button appears. I'm running Outlook 2016.

        Hi, I have the same issue. I had filed my email and I've put it back in my send items but still doesn't appear. I have even added the tracking icon to my list and its grey, I can't clic on it. Please help! Thanks a lot!

      I am having a similar problem in 2013. I don't feel like I should have to vote in my own poll, but I did. I do see the blue circle with i in it that says The sender responded: Yes. If you right click on that, it asks if you want to see the responses. Might work for you. Good luck.

    Thanks for the Tip! I sent a Voting Request to about 30 recipients and the Show Group wasn't available until after I actually opened one of the responses. I was a bit worried that I might have done something wrong in creating my customized responses.
    Thanks again!
