Event due date
Hi,I’m using Slido event for LightSpeed Council meetings which occur every two months.My Slido event for LightSpeed Council meetings has end date 30-June-2023. This date already extended but I need to keep extending it since I don't have end date for those meetings.My questions are:Can I extend the event to additional year even if its already being extended in the past? If I will extend it, is it going to impact the analytics report ? Am I going to lose some historical data? Is there an option not to define due date for the event?Thanks,Keren
Displaying Survey Results - all questions
If you created a survey and want to display results to all questions in the survey in a rolling content mode, is that possible? I am using this for a mingling event and would like to have all the results to the question presenting on the screen without needing to advance to the next question.
Using Slido Poles and Survey's to track attendance and engagement.
I’m currently running 1 course that consists of the following:70+ students > 10 instructors 3 directors 16 Weeks total. 1 class / student / week. Europe / NAM Rest of World With this many moving parts, it is difficult to track attendance. If we could have the following it would greatly simplify the task at hand to ensure students are engaged:Tracking the overall course in 1 consolidated report:Student Week 1, 2, etc. # responses Final Survey Total Days in attendance Total Surveys / Poles completed. Overall days in attendance Total survey Each course rating. Each course feedback Each course attendance Each course feedback Average in attendance Tried to set this up in our LMS system but because of this being both in person, digital as well, it becomes problematic.

can this be used live without people skipping forward?
I want to use slido for my company’s meetings. I want to involve questions, multiple choice, and polls, but I don’t want people to be able to skip ahead. Is there a way for me, admin, to not let anyone skip forward and to stay on the question until I’m ready to move on to the next one? thanks
Breaking a survey into two sections
I would like to send out one survey (with one hashtag), but I would like to break it up into two sections. For example, it’s an evaluation of a program-- two sessions have already transpired. I would like the first section of the survey to cover the kick-off section, the second section of the survey would cover the first learning session. How can I do that while keeping both surveys active? When I split the polls into two surveys, Slido will only allow one to be active at a time.
Hello, Community!I want to create a discussion dynamic in the physical classroom, using Slido as a resource. The dynamic I want to create is for the participants to take qualitative decisions and rank their options from higher to lower.Can I do that in a poll or is Slido not the right tool for that?
As a participant, can I leave the poll after a couple of answers and come back the next day to complete it ?
I will participate to a 200 questions-survey that I might not be able to complete at once. If I leave the poll after having completed some of the questions, can I come back the next day (or even later, within the poll timeframe) and continue to input my answers without any loss from the initial session ?
Privacy Settings For Different Rooms
I would like to have one Slido event with two rooms to support the use of Audience Q&A for two different speakers. Room #1 can be anonymous (if the user chooses to stay anonymous). Room #2 requires users to identify themselves to ask a question.Is this possible?
Using the same PowerPoint slides with same polling but different rooms
hi - so I'm running focus groups that have the same poll questions and I've setup different rooms for each date. Can i use the same powerpoint slide deck for each one and change the session / room? when i switch to another date/room, my slido slides in powerpoint disappear making me think i need to create duplicate slides as well. help anyone?
💁♀️ Focus of the month: Meeting facilitation
Hey Community,How do you deal with silence when you’re facilitating meetings? Do you talk over it, ask others to speak, or just pray for it to be over? 👀We’ve found that people often ask us to add music to polls because of this exact reason. It’s totally understandable - facilitating meetings is daunting enough on its own, let alone if you are running a hybrid meeting where silence is common. 📌 But fear not, Slido community! Using our recently released typing indicator, participant names in open text polls and open text topics, you can tackle silence head-on and become an even better facilitator. To find out how to set up and use these features, take a look at our quick tutorial: 📚 For more tips on facilitation and to find out why we will not be adding music to polls, head over to our blog. How do you feel about facilitating meetings? Have you used any of these features yet? Let us know your thoughts below! 🤗
I would like to use slido for the following activities:Risk management: participants to rate the likelihood and impact of certain risks, resulting in a graphic of results for discussion on a 5x5 matrix. Is this something that can be done, or would I need to create a poll and ask them to rate likelihood and impact at the same time (ie, have 25 options for them to pick from)? Risk Appetite Statements: participants to rate their appetite on different risk categories, resulting in a graphic of results on a sliding scale?Has anyone use slido for these reasons? Would love some advice or ideas on how best to achieve this?
