"We provide this service to help people find information…" - currently, that is hard to do because I have to individually look at each record to see if it is the individual that I'm looking for.
Thanks for your suggestion. We’ll put it under review to our team.
Please note that we generally do not recommend searching to find researchers’ ORCID iDs. Rather, we recommend asking them to provide their ORCID iD.
For systems, this would be by requesting that researchers sign into ORCID to provide their ORCID iD via authentication.
For individuals, this would be by asking the researcher directly for their ORCID iD.

Thanks for your comment. We're soon going to unveil an application that we've developed for just this use.
It's something like Doodle for ORCID iDs: You create a page for, say, your event and then link it to the group of contacts (conference registrants or attendees). They'll be able to sign into their ORCID accounts to authenticate their identities, and then their name will be added to the list along with their authenticated ORCID iDs. You'll then be able to download them all in text format.
We've been demoing it during our recent workshops, and it is how we collected the ORCID iDs of our iD display working group members: https://orcid.org/blog/2017/05/10/new-id-display-guidelines-journals-now-released
We hope to have the application released soon along with sample use cases. Keep an eye on our blog for more information!

Thanks. I understand.
My use case is this:
I am listing attendees to a workshop.
I want to list their ORCID (both to identify them unambiguously, and also to encourage the attendees that don't have an ORCID to get one).
The attendees don't always provide their ORCID. Since there is a small number of them, I can check each one manually. This is faster, and more polite, than going back to them for more details.
ORCID is the the issuing authority, so I check your site.
