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?
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 there,we're considering about switching from mentimeter to slido because of your google slide integration.However, one thing we miss is the ability to have multiple sliders on one slide. Is that something on your roadmap? There is a slide format as live polling from menti, where you can have multiple sliders like in the attachment.There is 3 things I like better in Menti then your ratings:1. Sliders are nicer than the bar of stars. Stars don't really fit certain questions (e.g. how scared are you doesn't relate well to "I am 5 stars scared").2. I can have multiple related sliders on one slide. Slido forces all sliders onto a new slide. This is very limiting.3. For large audiences, the distribution illustration is extremely valuable. If my team is split into two polarised extremes, the next steps have to be very different compared to everybody is centered. Both produce the same average however.
Hi there, so I have a presentation assignment and I put Slido in my PowerPoint file. If I saved that PPT file on a flashdisk, plug it in on my school computer on the presentation day, would it still functioning like it is on my personal computer?
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.
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!
I had a presentation that a colleague set up. When the meeting started she added me as a cohost. However I was not able to set up Slido to work within Webex itself. I was wondering how meetings can be set up and Slido will always work within Webex itself. Not everyone has 2 or 3 screen to run Slido and not fully savvy to have it run on their phone at the same time either. Please advise.
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?
I just used slido and it was a disaster. In presentation mode I could only see the top 25% of the screen. I did a dry run the day before and it worked. In my actual meeting the scale was 400%. So I couldn’t see the responses for my interactions. I tested other presentations without slido and it worked fine.
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!
Hi. I have created a PowerPoint with Slido integrated on my laptop. I need to present this to a large audience but will have to log in via the lecture hall computer without much time to set up in advance. How do I ensure my integrated slides present properly and the Slido component activates? I can’t currently make it work on another computerThanks
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?
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.
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
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.
Hi,I was going to insert a poll into an already existing presentation using the PowerPoint plugin. When I press the button, on the right side of the screen I can’t see all the events I have in my (free) account. I see only one of them.If I do the same steps in a fresh presentation everything works fine and I can see all the events.I tried to copy the working slide from the fresh presentation to the already existing one but it doesn’t work.I tried to log out and in again but not solving the problem.Any idea?Thanks.
