Using Slido embedded in PowerPoint slides for Microsoft Teams Live Event?
Hello all,I just learned about the Slido not being integrated with Microsoft Teams Live Event. Very soon I will have a Live Event session for which I prepared a PowerPoint deck embedded with Slido interactions (polls, rankings, ratings and such). I plan to present this slide deck during the Live Event.Did anyone already tried this option? How well did it work? Any tips for me?Thanks a bunch!Stjepan

White Sidebar in PowerPoint
Hello All, I downloaded Slido for Powerpoint a few weeks ago and everything was working perfectly. Randomly one day the sidebar to add your questions to the slides turned white. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Slido and it is still white. It seems like all solutions provided by Slido are IT related. This is my personal computer at home. Any help would be appreciated.
How can we see Microsoft Teams functionalities while making a presentation with Slido integrated?
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.
Using same presentation at the same time but different groups
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.
Unable to add more than one quiz question in Powerpoint
Hello,I use Slido directly from PowePoint so that I don’t have to exit my presentation while presenting. In the past, I’ve been able to create a multiple choice quiz right in PowerPoint but when I try to now, it only allows me to create a one question quiz. Once I go to Slido website I can create a multiple question quiz but I’d have to leave my presentation to do so. What happened? How was I able to do so in the past and not anymore?
Showing all quiz results at the end of a lecture
I want to begin each lecture with four questions to ascertain knowledge of the subject matter that the participants may already have. I do not want them to see the results of the quiz at this point. At the end of the lecture, I will give the same quiz again, but after the time is up for the last question, I would like to reveal the results of the first quiz compared with the results of the second quiz.I’m a real newbie and right now I’m trying to figure out how to keep the results from showing even though I have unchecked the “Show Results” box.
Showing of "poll description" in the powerpoint slide
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 to make the QR code larger in a PowerPoint slide?
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.
Powerpoint and Slido
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
Slido doesn't show up in PowerPoint
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
Slido compatibility with empower
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!
Display lots of potential answers in a quiz
Hello, I am trying to use Slido integrated with Powerpoint to run a live quiz. There are 12 possible answers to each question, but when I run the presentation only the first 9 are displayed. If the correct answer is number 10, 11, or 12 this is not displayed as it is “off screen” The web interface shows all 12 options and then the answer correctly. Is there any easy solution or workaround?Thanks!
How to delink event in PowerPoint
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.
Slido green button does not appear in the Home bar
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!
"Start Presenting to Display the Poll Results on this Slide"
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?
What can I do if my polls are not showing up in PowerPoint?
I have PPT slides that have embedded live polls and Q&A windows. I have tested this presentation before, and everything worked. Currently, when I run the slides -- using the “Present with Slido” button -- the polls do not show in the presentation. It just shows the placeholder slide.For this same PPT file, if I add a new poll now, then it shows as expected during the presentation. But the saved poll slides still do not work.I have checked that I am connected to the correct event. (I have two different ones, for two different classes that I am teaching,) I’ve tried restarting PPT and restarting the (Windows) laptop. No change.Any ideas?
