Using Slido at Slient Auctions?

Weird question… Has anyone ever used Slido to help manage a auction / silent auction? Seems like this could be set up to take input/ bids via QR code/ link and parse info behind the scenes… Just curious if any ever leveraged Slido for that

Hi @Dave Turner

No question is too weird here at Slido! 😁

Though we aren’t necessarily set up traditionally to manage a slient auction, we certainly have the tools for it to perhaps work for you! 

You could try using an open text poll to do this. You could then keep the text results submitted by participants hidden by changing the settings so this isn’t revealed whilst presenting. To see who submitted their ‘bid’ in this case, I would recommend enabling our require name option

Hope this helps, and please update us on how your auction goes if this works for you, we’d love to hear all about it!
