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:

  1. create new presentation
  2. add some slido artifact (e.g. Question, Join Information)
  3. save presentation
  4. 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!

Hi @GeorgiSchumov,

Thanks for sharing such a detailed post 😍

Unfortunately, there’s a very quick answer -  Slido for PowerPoint integration is currently not compatible with the Empower add-in. 

This means that for Slido to work in your PowerPoint, you’ll have to temporarily disable Empower.


I’m sorry about that, please let me know if there’s anything else that I can help with!
