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. Alongside this, you can also set it to require the participants' email.
In this article:
Ask for a name and email via Settings
To enable capturing names and emails, follow these simple steps:
- Go to Settings
- Select Privacy on the left
- Click the toggle to turn on Require authentication
- Toggle on Require name and/or Require email
Please note, that if a 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 will see the participant names next to submitted questions and open text poll responses. Both names and email addresses are included in your exports.
This is how it works for the participants:
Even if you required your participants to join with their name, they can still choose to vote and submit questions anonymously.
If you really need to capture participant names you can:
- Ask your them out loud not to use the anonymous option
- Prevent them to send anonymous votes and questions by changing the Privacy settings to always require name.
This option is available in Professional and higher plans.
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.
This is how your participants will see it:
