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.


If you have external resources you wish to share with your participants, you can include them in your slido as external links. Your audience will then be able to access them directly from participant mode.

This can be especially helpful when needing to share an agenda or presentation.


Unsure how to invite your participants to join Slido? Check out our quick guide to see how easy it is.
