Multiple Slido Events In One Slide Deck

We have a multi-day event coming up. We are using a single, consolidated PowerPoint slide deck that will be used by all speakers. Several of the speakers have asked for their own Slido Q&A Session. Using the PowerPoint plugin for Slido I inserted the first of three Q&A Slido event in the slide deck but when I went to add the next one it told me that by switching to the second event it affected was already in place. I tested it by inserting SlidoEvent#1 on the first slide and then switching to SlidoEvent#2 and then going back to the the #1 slide. The #1 slide was now pointed at the #2 event.

Is there a way to handle this?

Hey @mstadfield,

At the moment, you can only connect one Slido event to one Powerpoint deck but you can get around this by sharing your screen instead. The behaviour you experienced was because you tried to link multiple events to the same deck which causes events to disconnect from the deck. With your setup, it would actually be better if you opened the Q&As in your browser using Present mode and then shared your screen with the questions. You will need to sign in at, open your events with the Q&As and then click on the green ‘Present’ button.

If you would like to simplify this, you can create just one event and add a room for each speaker. This way you will need to open one Present mode and then you can switch between your rooms inside of it. Just remember here that even though these rooms will be in the same Slido event, you still cannot link all of them to the same Powerpoint deck. The rooms feature is available starting from the Professional plan.

I hope this helps :) Let me know if you have any more questions.

How do I create multiple elements (e.g. a couple word clouds, several quizzes) in one event and get them to show when presenting with Slido in PowerPoint?

I have a few elements in my event, but can only get the first one to come on in ‘Present with Slido’ mode in Pppt.
