    Thanks for contacting us.

    If someone forgot to enter his name there's no way to know name of that person, however, you can still know the email address if you have an email field in your form. You  can also know the IP address of the person who submitted the form, it appears in the submmissions in the submission page:


    However to avoid this inconvenient you should setup the name field as required, to do it please follow these steps: 

    1. While editing your form Click ove the Name field.

    2. Click on Required option. Then save your form.

    In that way If someone forgets to enter the his name won't be able to submit the form until he enters the name.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need further assistance.
