Get participants' names and emails

If you wish to capture the names of participants submitting their questions or voting in polls, 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. 

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.
