Is there a way of using existing User ID's from within platform for participants?

Hi there! I’m using a virtual events platform and was hoping that Slido would be able to “pick up” the user’s existing ID from within the platform, and use that instead of having to create a new UID when asking questions and answering polls. Can anyone help with that?


Thanks in advance!

Hi @lnat,

Yes, Slido can indeed do that :)

Using query parameters, Slido is able to extract users’ information such as name, email and company. This way the participant only has to enter their information into your platform and Slido fills out their information automatically. The last section of our tutorial on embedding explains how this works.

Is this what you’re looking for? Let me know if you have any questions.
