You can embed Slido into an event app to allow your participants to use all the features of Slido inside the app. Once Slido is integrated, they can use it quickly and easily without leaving the event app.
Selected apps we integrate with are DoubleDutch, Guidebook, Eventbase, Attendify, CrowdCompass, Socio & Attendease.

Get the Slido link
You can copy the direct link to a Slido event right from the Participant mode:
- Open Participant mode on the left side
- Click the three vertical dots
- Select Copy link to clipboard
Quick tip: Get separate links for Questions, Polls, or Ideas:
You can navigate your participants directly to Questions, Ideas or Polls and Surveys if you have multiple menu items available in your app. Just add /questions, /polls, or /ideas to your event link to do so.
Using the Slido link in the event app
To insert Slido link into your event app:
- Open your event app settings
- Enable the ability to integrate link (WebView)
- Enter the link to your event app
Here's an example of integration with Attendify:
This is what the integration looks like for participants:
Embed a specific Slido room
If you wish to embed a specific Slido room into your app, you need to get the URL of that respective room. To do so:
- In your Slido event, select the room you wish to embed and hover over the green Present button in the upper right corner
- Select Copy Present link
- Replace "wall" in the URL with "app" and paste it into the event app
Example link: https://app.sli.do/event/jmq0hgb9?section=04d69a05-96d7-43fc-a1b3-0321a3f1c18c
- Pro tip: Embed Slido event with query parameters
If you'd like to embed Slido int the event app behind the registration page, you can use query parameters for it. For more information, read the respective section about query parameters in our Embed Slido to your website article.
Curious about more?
I am using a trial account and I am trying to embed Slido in to a mobile app.
I am trying to enter a user_email as a query string parameter, but the email address is not displaying in the profile.
The email format is: user_name=firstName.lastName@somedomain.com
I have also tried: user_name=firstName%2ElastName@somedomain.com
In either case the email address does not show in the profile.
For query parameters, Slido actually uses a different variable for email addresses. Here’s an explanation:
In the following queries, replace NAME, EMAIL, and COMPANY with the corresponding variables from your website. We’re using John from Slido as a direct replacement:
To pre-fill multiple profile details with a single link, separate the parameters with the "&" symbol like so:
Please also make sure to enable ‘Require email’ in your event settings first.
We have a full, detailed guide for setting up query parameters here.
Hope this helps! :)
