I am the Chairman of my committee’s Halloween and Christmas Decorating contest. Can I use this app for Voting for the best decorated homes in three categories? This will take place for 10 days? I will have a photo per contestant too. We will have at most 50 homes.

How can I get a poll to display one question at a time? 

Is there a way to create a welcome page?

Hi @Cheryl T

That sounds super fun! 

Yes, Slido would be a great tool for this and there are a number of ways this can be done. You could do this with our Google slides integration, for instance or run a ranking poll. I would recommend this webinar on getting started with Slido  to get a feel for what we do. We also have a great knowledge base of help center articles to get you started. You could try creating and then testing your event before you run it live. 

Our awesome customer care team are on hand 24/5 to answer any questions specific to what’s best for your event. You can reach them at support@slido.com or through live chat in your Slido admin. 

Hope this helps!

Hi @CarolinaMejia

Polls are designed to show one question at a time, Is it possible you mean displaying the poll results?

Depending on your plan, you can apply customizations to include a welcome screen. 

Let me know if you have any more questions!
