Some organizers or meeting owners decide to only use Slido to poll their audience or crowdsource questions. As a result, they don't necessarily use all features at the same time.


Available in all plans.

Disable individual features in event settings



To make sure the participants land directly onto questions, polls or ideas, you can disable the individual features in settings. The tabs will disappear from both your Admin interface as well as from Participant mode.

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Select Features
  3. Choose which features you wish to use


Disable Q&A via Present mode


Our Q&A feature is turned on by default. If you're managing Slido directly from Present mode and only wish to use polls, surveys or quizzes, you can also disable Q&A directly from there so that your participants aren't distracted by it.

  1. Open Settings in the control panel
  2. Click on Disable Participant Q&A

Is it possible to turn off the upvoting feature in Q&A?

Hi @KatPark


It’s not possible to disable upvoting in Q & A. However, there are some workarounds that might be beneficial to your use case. For example, you can disable anonymous questions so a name is required or to even things out, you could go to Settings > Features >Enable Downvotes. By enabling downvotes, this could counteract with upvotes, creating a balance. 

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions!
