Running two monitors and I regularly use the feature in PPTX Set Up Slide Show menu under Show Type “Browsed by an individual (window)” instead of “Presented by Speaker (full screen).” Doesn’t seem like Slido works with the browsed by an individual….when I start the show and get to a slido slide, it displays the instructions “Start presenting to display the joining instructions on this slide...” and the QR code float in a separate window on my other screen. Other posts I’ve read said you MUST run Slido in full screen, which I’m hoping isn’t the case. My setup:Large 49” monitor with Microsoft PowerToys split into 3 columns, one of which I run PPTX. My second screen is my 15” laptop screen and that’s off to the side, so if I must run full screen PPTX in there to get Slido to work properly, I have to look away from my camera while presenting. I’m not interested in using Presenter Mode because I need other screen real estate. Are there any workarounds? Why can’t Slido load properly whe
Hi,I’m using the Slido PowerPoint integration tool. I’ve included polls in my presentation. When I present the slideshow, once I come to a Slido poll, the screen is blank. If I advance forward to the next slide it continues the presentation. No question or information is displayed and my participants can’t see anything either.Can you help with a solution please?
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!
I’ve created a Power Point deck and included three slido slides. I click on the “Present with Slido” button to view the deck as if I was presenting it.The problem...the slido slide font is too big and does not fit in my screen. Is there a way for me to adjust the size of the Slido slide so all contents fit in my screen?
I have integrated Slido slides in my powerpoint presentation for a training. At this time, the presentation is full screen and I can't see the participants, if they raise their hands or if they comment. Nor can't I see the clock and desktop applications. I need to be able to see the rest of my screen and the MS Teams functions.
Hello!I am a new Slido user. I am looking to integrate a poll with a presentation created by a colleague - when I try and log in from my account it says that the presentation is linked with someone else’s account (my colleague’s). How do I get it to switch over to using my Slido account? Thanks! Helena
HiOur team is designing a new powerpoint training presentation, that will be used in virtual classrooms over MS teams. We are incorporating slido for the first time, so its a steep learning curve!We have worked out that the presentation can be reused, great, but how can we use the presentation at the same time, by two trainers ,running two different sessions? Can you advise please?Also, In total there are six trainers who will be using the presentation ,but no more than two at one time. Are there any other factors we should consider? Our company has a professional package if that helps.
When I set up a word cloud in Slido for PowerPoint, it creates a slide with a small QR code. There’s seems to be no way to enlarge it enough so people way in the back can see it.Is there any way to make it larger or even print it out (and waste paper)?Yes, I know they can go online, use the code, etc.
We have a multi-day event coming up. We are using a single, consolidated PowerPoint slide deck that will be used by all speakers. Several of the speakers have asked for their own Slido Q&A Session. Using the PowerPoint plugin for Slido I inserted the first of three Q&A Slido event in the slide deck but when I went to add the next one it told me that by switching to the second event it affected was already in place. I tested it by inserting SlidoEvent#1 on the first slide and then switching to SlidoEvent#2 and then going back to the the #1 slide. The #1 slide was now pointed at the #2 event. Is there a way to handle this?
Hello,I try to use Slido with Powerpoint.I created a Survey and I’m wondering if there is a possibility that the survey questions are displayed on screen after I open the slide.The only thing I’m able to show is the title iof the survey.Or do I have to show the slide with the survey questions and run Slido from outside Powerpoint (either with Slido Switch or from the Slido admin) ?RegardsPascal
Hi all,I experience problem after update is done on Slido add-in. It asked me to make an update while I was using PowerPoint and since then it doesn’t show up as add-in icon on Home tab.I tried with reinstalling, repairing, also with SlidoforAdmin but it doesn’t come up and even making changes in registry editor but still nothing. Only thing that I notice is when parameters in registry editor changes, add-in transferes from inactive to active add-ins and becomes active in list of add-ins in PowerPoint. Following, check box is checked when I try to enable Slido but unfortunately there is no luck.Is there any solution that I can try to manage it or I just have to wait for new Slido update?Thank you in advance
Hey,I added a description to my poll and it works insofar as that the users see the description on their devices but it is not displayed on the powerpoint-slide. How do I get it to be displayed on the slide as well? Seems like a simple problem but I cannot find a button to change it and it is driving me crazy. Thanks in advanceMaren
Dear community, I am facing compatibility issues working with empower addin.If both addins are installed, Powerpoint is hanging in Presenter mode. You can always reproduce it, tested with Office 2019 and Office 365, empower ver 8.7 and latest Slido, Steps to reproduce:create new presentation add some slido artifact (e.g. Question, Join Information) save presentation start presentation in presenter mode → Powerpoint is crashing (stopping working and restarting) after 20 sek. Starting in presenter mode is not possible.Is the issue with empower known?Is there a fix or workaround for working with empower?empower is rolled out corporate wide and seems the co-existing of both addins is not possible at this moment. For any ideas, support and question you can contact me!
HiI created an event using a branded PowerPoint deck for Meeting 1. I want to now create a new event for Meeting 2 and so the PowerPoint for Meeting 1 as “Meeting 2” with the intention of updating most slides and linking it to Event 2. But it keeps telling me that the PPT was created with a different account., It wasn’t!How on earth do I get the PPT for Meeting 2 to recognise Event 2. I’ve tried copy and paste to a blank PPT document but it does not take the branding with it. :(Is there no easy way to delink the event from a “Saved As” PPX document? If not, this is a reason for reconsidering my use of Slido.
