Updated integration fails to run
While working in PowerPoint with Slido, I received a notice that an update was available. Now that I have completed the update, the PowerPoint integration is not working at all!This is on two different computers running Office 365. One of them gave me a warning that the plug in was not functioning and gave me the option to keep it or disable it while working in PowerPoint.Suggestions or help?My recommendation is that if Slido is working DO NOT update to the newest version yet!
Can we prevent Slido for Windows from auto-update on the user side?
How can we suppress the autoupdate on the client? We use MS SCCM for the app deployment. When closing the app or PowerPoint it tries to make an update. Can this be suppressed, as the users have no right to install apps on their clients.?Thanks.
PowerPoint - using presenter view - slido not showing correctly
I am planning to use Slido for an online training session in PowerPoint. I have two screens. My large monitor with my webcam on the top... and my Surface Pro laptop below. I use presenter mode on the laptop then swap that to my large screen so I can see me notes clearly and have my eyeline near the camera. The regular slide show for what the participants see remains below on the laptop. All good usually but when I click through to the Slido poll slides the slido presentation only appears in about 2/3rd of the slide. Anyone know how to rectify this? I need my presenter notes on the large monitor up top as I can barely see the surface!
Showing Q&A Replies in PowerPoint
Hello! We used Slido for the first time today during a large meeting, and one big bummer that we couldn’t figure out, was a way to show in the PowerPoint presentation the replies that the moderator was responding with. Is this not a possibility? Do you have to have a paid plan or certain settings? Any help would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU

We are repeating the same Powerpoint presentations 10 times over the course of 2 days.Please advise if this is the recommended procedures for the start of each breakout session. OR provide the best alternative.1. Reset sessionRun PPT Presentation (using PPT integration) Once presentation end, Download results for all Rooms RepeatWill this prevent data from previous session to be overwritten? I can then merge all 10 data-sets to create a overall leader board.

Presentation mode - leave questions open while running to next slide?
Hi, I was wondering if the following is possible, but can’t find anything. I want to run a poll during a presentation. However, once I go to a next slide, I want to keep the question open. I always have 1 “normal” slide and 1 polling slide. Is it possible that users can actually go back, once the new question is automatically displayed, but they want to keep adding their answer(s) to the prior question? Thank you!
