This document is intended to guide Admins, Moderators, and Members of the community on how to participate anonymously.

There are 2 types of anonymity in the communities:

  1. Hiding Identity

  2. Submitting Anonymously

If a member submits anonymously, then there's no way to unveil his/her identity. But if a member simply hides his/her identity then an administrator can see the identity by exporting member data/idea data disabling the Hide My Identity from Customize Site Behavior.

IdeaScale allows users to hide their avatar picture, first name, and last name from other users (email address by default is always hidden).
This is a feature that the admin has control over and when enabled affects the entire community. Help Article: Hiding Your Identity/Anonymous Posts
