Slido is gradually rolling out a new user interface. If the below steps and visuals match what you are seeing within your account, then you are using the old interface and this article is for you. If not, please see this version.

 

If you want to know who joined your event and how they voted in a poll, you can require a name and/or email to join. You can also group your poll questions into a survey and use the first question to ask for their name. 


Regardless of which option you choose, you’ll find names, emails, and poll responses all categorized within your event exports

 

Available in all paid plans

 

If you’re running a quiz, there's no need to set anything up. Participants are always asked to add their names automatically. Learn more about how to Run a quiz via Slido.

Require name and email in settings 

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.
