Hey Slido Community!

Over the past month we’ve received a few questions that asked:


Turns out, we have a great solution for this - Ideas!

This is a great feature.  I’ve used it real time in several group discussions and it has been great.  I only enable upvotes, but will enable downvotes next time as well.  I can’t wait for it to be fully released and fully integrated into Webex and PowerPoint.  Thanks Slido team!

Happy to hear that, @DavidM! :)

Is there a way to notify folks that someone has replied to their idea?

Hey @margotvidal ,

There is not currently a way to notify a participant that someone has replied to their Idea suggestion, it would only show under their submission the number of Replies if there are any.

We will submit this as a feature request on your behalf for future consideration!

Let us know if you have any other questions!

Hi Carly, is there a way to notify the account owner when there are submissions added to their Ideas thread? Like not between participants, but at least for the person who is running the whole thing to know that there’s been new activity on it?
