To see all the features you used in the Export, please make sure they're enabled in your Event settings.



Export Audience Q&A


You can export Slido Questions into an Excel spreadsheet file.

  1. Go to Analytics
  2. Click Export
  3. Select Questions



This automatically generates a file with questions - it includes timestamps, names (if provided), and the number of upvotes.

This is what an export file looks like:

If you have Multiple rooms, each one of them will have a separate sheet within the export (along with a sheet for your overall export)

Question exports columns explained:

  • Question text - This column consists of the complete texts of submitted questions
  • Score - Each question has a score which is the difference between the upvotes and downvotes it received, i.e. how popular the question was
  • Upvotes - The number of upvotes which a given question received
  • Labels - If you're using our Labels feature, you can see those in exports as well
  • Downvotes - The number of downvotes which a given question received
  • Highlighted You can see whether a question has been highlighted or not (1 means yes and 0 means no)
  • Starred - You can see whether a question has been starred or not (1 means yes and 0 means no)
  • Status - You can see the current status of each question at the time of the export
    • Rejected - The question wasn't approved
    • Live - The question was approved and is currently live
    • Answered - The question was approved and then marked as answered
    • Archived - The question was approved and then archived (not marked as answered)
    • Pending - The question is still under review (it hasn't been approved or rejected yet)
  • User ID - Each user has their own randomly generated user ID assigned
  • User name - If you've asked for the name of your participants, you can see it here (they can still choose to remain Anonymous)
  • Room If you're looking at overall exports, this column tells you in which room a certain question has been asked
  • Sentiment - Thanks to our in-house built machine learning model, we can assign a tone to each question (Positive, Negative, Neutral)
  • Submission date - The date on which the question was posted
  • Submission time - The time when the question was posted

Please note that if your Q&A exceeds 1000 questions, your event analytics won’t load and you won’t be able to export questions yourself. Please contact support@slido.com or your dedicated account manager, and they can assist you with the export.

This is to ensure optimal performance of Slido. 

Export Ideas


You can export Slido Ideas into an Excel spreadsheet file.

  1. Go to Analytics
  2. Click Export
  3. Select Ideas



If you're using Ideas Replies, those aren't available in our exports.


This is what an export file looks like:



Export Poll results


You can download your poll results as PDF or Excel spreadsheet files.

  1. Go to Analytics
  2. Click Export
  3. Select Poll results to see overall results or Poll results per user to see how each of the participants voted



Export of overall results:

This export simply shows the results of all your polls and surveys. Here are some examples of what it looks like:


Export of results per user:


Exports per user allow you to match the answers or votes with respective participants. Each of them has a unique User ID that you can track. 

If you asked your participants to enter their name and/or email when joining your event, you’ll see their data in this export. This can be especially useful when you're using polls with correct answers.


Here's an example of the export file when participants filled in their names:

Example of Poll results per user export with multiple rooms

You can see how your participants voted in individual polls by clicking the sheets named by the room number.


Poll exports columns explained:

  • Poll ID - Each poll has its unique randomly created ID
  • Poll type - The type of poll which you're looking at (Open text, Word cloud, Rating, Multiple choice, Quiz)
  • Poll question - The full text of your poll question
  • Poll option - The answer to the poll question in that row
  • Count - The total number of people who voted for that specific answer (if it is either an open text poll or a word cloud, the answer will be 1)
  • Total votes - The total number of votes received in that poll
  • Results - For multiple-choice polls, you can see the percentage of votes which each answer received. For rating polls, this will be the average score of submitted answers.
  • Survey name - If the poll was created under a survey, you can see what the name of that survey was
  • Room - If you're looking at overall exports, this column tells you in which room a certain poll has been asked
  • User ID - Each user has their own randomly generated user ID assigned
  • User name - If you've asked for the name of your participants, you can see it here (they can still choose to remain Anonymous)
  • Submission date - The date on which the poll answer was submitted (in the Export all tab)
  • Submission time - The time when the poll answer was submitted (in the Export all tab)

Please note that if your Polls exceeds 1000 poll responses, your event analytics won’t load and you won’t be able to export the poll responses yourself. Please contact support@slido.com or your dedicated account manager, and they can assist you with the export.

This is to ensure optimal performance of Slido. 


Export your data using Google Sheets


If you prefer, instead of downloading a .PDF or .XLS file, you can stay online using Google Sheets - choose Export to Google when exporting your data. 

This will create a new spreadsheet under your Google account with the respective data.

Hey @nrevane22 ,

Currently Slido Exports are only available from within the event when you log in at slido.com. We do not have a current roadmap for integrating these exports to Control Hub or directly from the integration itself quite yet.


I hope this helps!

Hey @Kris Syvertsen ,

You will need to go to the Analytics tab to export any data from the event, not the poll itself.

And then choosing Poll Results Per User. Both links will have steps and gifs showing you where and how to find these.

Let us know if you have any other questions!

Hi @CGutjahr81,

No, participants cannot export anything from Slido. Only those who have access to Slido admin (event owners, guests) can export from the event.

Hope this helps :)


Hi @LindsayBell,

To track a specific month’s metrics, export poll results per user. Once you have the data downloaded, you will need to format cells as a table then filter the data in your table by clicking the sort button next to the column header. Sort by submission date relevant to the specific month you would like to pull the data from. 

Hope this helps :) Let me know if you have any further questions.

Does Slido keep tally’s of polls?  I am looking to use Slido for meeting ice breakers.  I’d like to keep a running tally of participants scores to award a prize to the individual who has the highest score after a series of polls.  Thanks.  


Can I export questions from my event when using the free version of Slido?

Hey @KatarinaZ,

No, exports are only available on our paid plans but you should be able to view and download Infographics.

Hope this helps! :)

Is there a way to export timeline results of poll engagement?

Example: we’ve had the poll up prior to an event and we wanted to see engagement comparisons of prior, during and after the event

Userlevel 3

Hi @Smikeliunas

There isn’t a way to automate this in Slido but I can see how it would be really useful in collecting insights!

As a workaround, you could export your poll results at points in the meeting as you said, prior, during and after, separately and see how they compare that way. To do this, after exporting the results at each time point, you would need to then reset the poll so you can accurately see the results from each point. You can also merge your polls into a survey and prompt your users to answer at points in the event.

Hope this helps!

Hey @LClarke75,

You can see participants’ results when you export Poll results per user. In the Excel sheet, you’ll see how each participant voted in every poll within the survey.

Hope this helps :)

I see that you can only use the Quiz feature running live with one question at a time.  We would like to have a series of questions as a quiz that we will get results for after everyone has completed.  I created the quiz in your survey feature but how can I see what scores individuals have achieved (I have marked the correct answer against each individual multiple choice question) and one question is asking participant name?

Is it possible to export the quiz results, like the “Poll results per user”? I would like to be able to see and save the results of each user - to be able to identify areas where individuals had problems.

Hey @Kris Syvertsen ,

When exporting Poll Results per User, this should also include each Participants response to each of your Quiz Questions.

Could you check that this is working for you?


I don’t see that option under quizzes, am I looking in the wrong place?

Hey @MarcoG

It sounds like you want to ask your audience a question and reveal the answer at the end of your presentation? 

Your options would be to manually add the data from the poll into a slide or to take a screenshot of the poll answer to go alongside your reality answer. Alternatively, you can export your poll results and add them to the slide. 

Let me know if there’s anything else I can help with!!

Hello there!
At the end of the ppt presentation, I would love to show a “perception vs. reality” summary of what my audience answered vs. what is the actual scenario. How can I display both data in a unique slide? 
Thank you so much for your support


is it possible to export analytics separately per room in a pdf file?





Hey Giovanna,

You can export all questions and poll results for the whole event or per room. Select the format that works best for you, be it a comprehensive online infographic, Excel file, or pdf. Learn more about the exports in the Export your data article.

When it comes to PDF, it will be one file, but the analytics will be divided there per room.

Hope this helps!

Can I see the live results of multiple answers?
Example: I ask 2 questions like “how big is your company?” and “what industry is your company in?”.
In the LIVE meeting, I want to see and select one person in a big company of a specific industry.
Thus, can I see and filter the results live in a google sheet?

Hi @philippstein,

You can see poll results live, but you can’t filter for individual responses live. When you activate a poll or a survey and open Present mode, you can see all participants’ answers as they come in live. To filter for individual responses, you need to export poll results per user after you’ve collected all responses. This will give you a spreadsheet with all the participants’ individual responses and you can filter the results there.

I can see how it would be useful to filter responses live, so I will submit this as a feature request. Thank you for sharing your use case :)

Let me know if you have any more questions.

is it also foreseen for a participant to export the complete Q&A section?

I have a similar question to @Bobby Love - I have the same poll duplicated month over month and each month I want to track that specific month’s metrics from the analytics tab. However, it pulls cumulative data even though the previous month poll has been deactivated. Is there a way to only track the active poll? I am afraid to delete the previous month poll and lose the results.

Thank you!


Hi @Bobby Love,

To keep tally of participants’ scores, you can either use a quiz poll or export the results. Our quiz poll keeps track of participants scores automatically and gives you a leaderboard at the end. You can then export your quiz results as an Excel spreadsheet.

  1. Go to Analytics
  2. Click Export
  3. Select Download export
  4. Select Quiz leaderboards

Alternatively, you could run any polls and then export Poll results per user to see how each participant responded.

Hi @Hamc1701

If you mean physically print out the answer choice, you should be able to do this by selecting the print option on the slide you’d like to print within Windows PowerPoint. 

If you’re trying to export your results, please follow this tutorial:

If you need immediate assistance, feel free to reach out to our fantastic customer care team by opening a chat from Slido admin or writing to support@slido.com. 

Hope this helps!

How can I print the answer choice in the powerpoint?
