If you want to know who asked a question or voted in the poll, you can simply enable the option of requiring the name when they join the event. In case you are interested only in the names of participants voting in polls, you can ask for their credentials via a Survey. Apart from names, you can also require participants' email.

 

Available in our Engage plan and higher.

 

To see who got the most questions right in a quiz, there's no need to set anything up. Your participants will be asked to add their names automatically. Learn more about how to Run a quiz via Slido.

Ask for a name and email via Settings

This is how it works for your participants. They can still choose to vote and submit questions anonymously. Ask them out loud not to use the anonymous option, if you really need to capture their names.

 

Info for your participants: If some participant tries to join an event multiple times with the same email address, we’ll send them a verification email to confirm their identity. This is in order to prevent cases of email or identity abuse.

You can see the names both next to submitted questions and in your exports.

 

Once the event is finished, go to event Analytics and export the polls per user results.

 

Ask for name and email in a Survey

 

You can add poll questions 'What's your name?' and 'What's your email?' at the beginning of your Survey no matter if it's a set of rating Polls, a feedback or a student exam.

With what's going on in todays world we are looking to use Slido at the firehouse as a mechanism for everyone to vote for the officers in the annual company meeting. However I’m trying to figure out a way, if someone can enter their name so I can verify who is voting. For company meetings we only allow full active members to participate in votes. for an example probationary members would be in the meeting just not allowed to vote. Is there a way to do this?

Hi @Harrison36LVFD,

 

With our paid plans, it is possible to ask participants to enter their names when joining the event. Once the meeting is over, you can export poll results per user and see who’s voted (and how). That said, I believe that for your use case this isn’t an ideal solution as it seems that you’d need that information in real-time and not post-event. 

With Slido, once someone joins an event, they’re able to freely interact with it - it isn’t possible to limit some people from voting while others not. One other possible solution is to protect the event with a passcode (also available with our paid plans) and only share it with the people who are allowed to vote (or create a separate event for them dedicated only to voting). 

I hope this helps at least a bit. Feel free also to check our Pricing page, if interested.

 

Best wishes,

Adam

Hi There,

If i turn on the registration for the event to include the email and name of the participant, how can i see this as a live updated list so that i know we have an audience that’s enrolled?

Hi @Darren E Cowley 👋

If you would like to see the participants entering your event live the best way would be run na survey. 

Once your participants enter, you’ll be able to see in the admin in real time as they submit their e-mails and name. A short survey with two questions something like this. 

While the registration is setup before your participants enter, you’ll be able to see their inputs only after exporting the results. It won’t work if you want to have an updated live list. 

Let me know what you think about the suggested option. 

 

Hi @Francesca yes that’s pretty much what we do now, but it’s a repeat of what they’ve already entered to log in as the first log in has validation on email etc and is reported on separately so is much more useful.

It’d be a awesome feature to give admin a live updated list of who had logged onto a session just like Kahoot does, that way we would know when to progress! 

 

Cheers

D

Hi @Darren E Cowley

Gotcha! Thanks for sharing. 

Totally understand how such a feature would be helpful.

Nothing more I can do at the moment, but happily passing on your feedback to our product team!

If anything else comes up that you find is missing in Slido, let us know. We gather all feedback and insights from our users. 

Thank you!

Francesca
