More poll customizations: End dates, hide results, etc.

Hey all, I'm thinking we could really benefit from a few new options with polls. Some details:

1. It'd be really nice to be able to put an end date on a poll. It just seems like a basic functionality, and I know several people up-voted the idea before: https://help.bloxcms.com/knowledge-base/applications/settings/urls/custom_properties/article_5fd6d870-2bdc-11e5-93e5-034d9f275a7e.html

2. Can we have the option to NOT show results (and maybe show a field after someone votes — "Check back Aug. 8 to see the winner."). That'd allow for us to do some really cool stuff that's not currently allowed. You could have votes for an athlete of the week, person of the year, etc. and not risk people not voting because someone is out to a 2-to-1 lead early, etc.

2 features that we would love to see on Poll assets as well! 

Agreed, both options would be really helpful. 

Currently we've made an extra poll: "This poll has closed" that we have to redate each time we want to have the poll unavailable. It works ... when we remember to redate it. People really enjoy our athlete of the week polls, and sometimes the vote is close. Having something we could set at the same time, as the live date and time, would be amazing.

is there a way to export poll results in a csv? Or see which users engaged with the poll/ participants?
