Can you extract first name & surname from anonymous responder in MS Form

PeggyLang_0-1607394118918.png

 

The above flow works perfectly when the responder is from within our organization.  I am able to use 'Given Name' and 'Surname' in the Flow.
However, we have a need to use this form with people outside of our organization.  Is there a way to extract 'Given Name' and 'Surname' from an anonymous email address?  I'm guessing no, but thought I would ask.  If I need 'Given Name' and 'Surname' from an anonymous responder is there any other way to obtain that information other than to request it in the MS Form itself?

Hi @PeggyLang,

 

I was also assuming that this wouldn't be possible since it's an anonymous response.

 

However, out of interest I have just tested it within a flow 😁. I am getting this as a response from the Get response details action. The output is just the word anonymous for the responder field. So I think it's safe to say that it isn't possible.

 

{
"responder":"anonymous",
"submitDate":"12/8/2020 10:12:08 AM",
"r2272a36b12ed4673a40b677c3ac3a084":"Option 2"
}
