How can we improve Poll Everywhere?

Response/non-response recorded in anonymous

Record response/non-response for Anonymous answers. There's one bit of information about each participant in anonymous responses that's needed: Did they answer or not? This way participants can get credit for participating.

We went back and for on this for a long while. And, the answer is NO. Sorry

When we say “Anonymous” we mean anonymous. If you have 100 folks and 99 respond, we are not going to have anyone identify the one person who didn’t. There’s just too many dangers and ways it could be abused and we owe our company’s success on both the Presenter and the Participant. Both must be protected. It’s the American Way.

For any poll where you want to give credit to people responding, we recommend using Registered Participants Only and to not use Anonymous mode. I hope everyone understands where we’re coming from.

    Doesn’t the danger exist for those who DID respond, not the one who didn’t? What are the “many dangers”? I appreciate that your group went back and forth in this for a while, but it would be interesting to know more of the reasoning.
