How do we identify attendees or keep them anonymous?

MeetingPulse offers several ways for controlling how much data you get from your attendees. There are pros and cons for each.

Full anonymity

The most basic level is full anonymity. Attendees do not have to share their names or log into the system. While the system will still track what each individual does, it will use names like "attendee 42" instead of any individually identifiable information.

Prompt for name

This setting asks each attendee to identify themselves by name. This is an honor system, so attendees can put in anything they want. However, with proper instruction, it's a way to keep track of what particular attendees do. Attendees names will show up on any questions or comments they submit. 

Prompt for email

Prompt for email is like prompt for name, except it does basic error-checking to ensure they've entered an email address. The email address will only be visible to the presenter in reports. The email will not show up next to the submitted questions.


We have SSO available so attendees can use their corporate identity. We work with Microsoft Active Directory (SAML), (SAML), and G Suite (Google docs).

You can also require attendees to log in through their Google accounts.

Require Custom Access Code

It's also possible to generate unique codes for attendees. Attendees will use these codes to log into MeetingPulse. Please contact support if you're interested in learning more.
