Generate Poll Reports

After conducting a Poll in Zoom, you may pull reports from the Zoom website. You can download a report of the poll results after the meeting. If “only authenticated users can join” was enabled and the poll was not anonymous, it will list the participants' names and email addresses. If “only authenticated users can join” was not enabled, it will show the results, but list the users as "Guest". If the poll was anonymous, it will show "anonymous" for the participants' names and email addresses.
