This is my first time using Slido. I’ve integrated into PowerPoint, and entered my questions. When I go into presenter mode, the content is not scaled correctly, and appears off screen - the QR code takes up half of the visible screen space. Is there a way to rescale the slides?Thankyou
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?
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
Hello,My colleagues and I have been using Sli.do for PowerPoint for the last 14 months. Today, my colleague received a new computer and tried reinstalling the Sli.do app but received an error message. I have Sli.do still working on my PC using version v0.18.2.1721. My colleague is trying to install v0.21.0.2123. We’re not sure why Sli.do is not installing for him. Is there a means to access and download an earlier version?Thanks!
I installed “Slido for Windows 0.17.1.1417.2102171556.msi” for Office 365 Pro Plus, and the Slido green button does appear in the Home bar. When I installed the same Slido version for Office 365 Enterprise, the Slido green button does not appear in the Home bar. Got the error message below:Location: mscoree.dllLoad Behavior: Not loaded. A runtime error occurred during the loading of the COM Add-in. Please advise on how to fix the issue above. Thanks!
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.
I’m using presenter mode for PowerPoint and when I get to the Slido slide it pops out of presenter mode into a full screen display. When I press the arrow key to move to the next slide I am no longer in presenter mode, all I see is the full slide screen. Has anyone else encountered this issue? Thank you!
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
I’ve integrated Slido with Powerpoint and set up some polls, including word clouds, ratings and open text. However, when I start the presentation, I reach the Slido poll and while the sidebar shows the results, the corresponding slide simply has “Start the Presenting to Display the Poll Results on this Slide”, and does not display any of the answers.I’ve tried starting the presentation with Slido, with f5 and with Powerpoint’s “Start from Beginning” button and none of them have shown the results on the slide.What am I missing?
I created a quiz in powerpoint, with normal slide interspersed between the Slido quiz slides. If a normal slide separates 2 Slido quiz slides then, the audience first sees “Get Ready” on the screen (see image) and the presenter needs to click again. “Get Ready” is not shown between consecutive Slido slides.Is there any way to skip this screen?thanksJosh
Can different PowerPoint presentations refer to the same Slido event? I am planning to use in class. Sometimes, I’m not 100% sure how much will be covered in a single lecture. If I get to the end of one PowerPoint presentation, and want to start the next, can both of those presentations refer to the same Slido event? I don’t want to have to switch events in the middle of class.Or do I need to set up a new hashtag for each slide deck?
For smoother transition between Powerpoint slides and Slido questions, I have found that it is best to set the Transition on your Slido slides, to none rather than fade or anything else. Otherwise you will see the Slido placeholder first before Slido loads the question webpage because that operation does not occur until the powerpoint transition is complete.
Hi @Slido Team,I just had the use case for our next Webex Webinar with PowerPoint Integration to come back to the results of a Slido poll which happened at the beginning of the Webinar.Is there a possibility without the need to exit the presentation and check the web interface?
As I can read, some other users had the same issues some months ago. I prepared the polls in Slido an try now to implement the existing ones in Powerpoint. But there are no polls.Sometimes I do see the event, but no polls, sometimes, I even don’t see the event. I have that problem for some weeks, now. It worked great over the last year. I work with the latest update and I am quite confuses and upset. What can or should I do?
Hi, When I open Powerpoint I can see Slido. After pressing the box appears however I get a message stating ‘network error please check your connection and retry’. I have run the check.me and everything is green. I am on the internet so the network connect seems fine. Can you help?
The Slido green button does not appear in the Home bar for me. I’ve downloaded Slido for Powerpoint three times and installed (and uninstalled, and reinstalled) it three times. I’ve restarted PowerPoint every time. I’m running Microsoft Office Home and Student 2016 (PowerPoint Version 2010, Build 13328.20356). I’d really like to use this tool, but how do I get it to integrate with PowerPoint?
We’re considering switching from Menti beacuse of your better google slides integration. However, one thing that is holding me back is the open ended question format. Here Menti allows to show much more on one slide: Maybe this is something you can add/improve on slido?
