I have the following use case. Many attendees are partecipating in a slido poll. I want to prevent not invited users to vote AND and need to grant multiple votes (2 or 3) to only some users whereas "standard" users should only have 1 vote granted. Is it possible?

Hi @Maurizio Maggiora.

We have a number of ways to secure your event and with your use case, I would also get participants’ names/emails.  That way, in the export of Poll results per user, you can identify those whose votes should be weighed more.  We’ve had other customers with the same use case, and they simply multiplied those votes in the spreadsheet.

You’ll just want to ask the participants not to vote anonymously. 

Hope that was helpful. :)

I Jen,

unfrotunately this is not my use case since I need users stay anonymous.

Hi, @Maurizio Maggiora.

Thank you for the clarification.

A good option might be to use Multiple rooms.  You would direct some participants into a second and maybe a third room.  By default, when participants send their responses, they will see Anonymous selected.  Then, when you export Poll results per user from those rooms, you can multiply their votes as mentioned above. 

You can still secure your event by instead requiring a passcode of your choosing. 

Hi Jen,

this is a nice option as well, but It’s not simply a matter of doubling a vote since one user should be able to vote twice giving different answers :-)

We managed it using different email addresses for those who need 2 or 3 votes. The best would be to add an option so that, when requiring an email address to enter the poll, each email could be set to enter the poll once or more times, every time receiving a different working access code.

Ah, I see.

I wish I had a good workaround for you.  But we always appreciate this kind of feedback.
