Slido is gradually rolling out a new user interface. If the below steps and visuals match what you are seeing within your account, then you are using the new interface and this article is for you. If not, please see this version.


Slido event dates are the time frame during which participants can join your Slido event using its unique event code at www.slido.com. If you need your audience to join the event outside the event dates, you can share with them either the direct event link or event QR code.


When setting your dates, make sure they match the dates of your actual event so the participants can easily join, send in their questions, and vote in polls.

Set up or change your dates


When creating your Slido, you’ll always be asked to set up your event dates. Follow the below steps to view or change these dates at any time.

  1. Find and click on Settings near the left side of your page
  2. See your event dates listed under the Basic information section
  3. Click your Start and End date to change them accordingly and hit Save
Change your Slido event dates


If you’re using a Basic Slido account or if you’ve purchased a one-time plan, the maximum length between your start and end date will be seven days.


If you’ve purchased an annual license, your events can last up to 12 months.



Slido event activation


You don’t need to worry about manually activating your Slido or anything like that. Once you reach the dates you’ve set up, participants will be able to join your event by entering the event code at slido.com.


If you’d like to test your event beforehand, select the View as participant option near the bottom right corner. This will allow you to see and experience your event, just like a participant.


Test your Slido as a participant


If you wish for your audience to access the event before it actually takes place (maybe to crowdsource questions beforehand), feel free to share your unique event link with them.


Using an event code at slido.com outside of its event dates will bring up the error: Sorry, there is no such event active right now



Closing your event


Every event officially closes at midnight of the end date which you set up. However, if you wish to quickly close the event before that, you can deactivate all polls and close the Q&A.



Data availability


You can access your Slido event and its data at any time unless you delete your event. Just click on the Analytics tab.


Access your Slido event analytics


Your event analytics will be updated in real time – so you can access them before, during, or afterwards.


With any paid plan, you can also export your Slido event data.
