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.
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 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.
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?
I followed steps from video to download add-in. As soon as I open PowerPoint, Slido icon says I’m offline. The error never goes away even if I logout of Slido and back in again. I am most definitely not offline. Has anyone seen this error before? Thanks.
I have created one presentation with Slido interactions embedded.I am trying to creat a second presentation for a different event but I cannot create a new event through powerpoint (it only shows the first event) I created a new event on the slido website but I cannot see this event in powerpointHow do I resolve this?
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.
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
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?
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, 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!
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?
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?
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!
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!
Hello,we use a proxy device for Internet access, does anyone know what urls the slido add on uses to connect?We are able to connect to slido from any browser without any problems.When we try to connect via powerpoint, it needs further authentication.We have allowed https://powerpoint-addin.sli.do Thanks
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?
