Hi @Christa Barker Myers,

The reason why some participants got the error code is that the Slido button in the side panel is only for Hosts of the meeting and collaborators added to Slido - this is to ensure they can administer Slido seamlessly while on a Webex call. 

For regular participants - people who are supposed to just answer polls or ask questions - Slido will appear in the sidebar once the Host opens it in their panel.

Please let me know if my explanation makes sense or if you have any other questions!

Hi, @Christa Barker Myers and all,

just an update here - if this notification appears in the participant’s Webex sidebar, they can navigate to the upper part of the sidebar and click “Slido - in meeting”. That should open Slido for them to vote in polls and ask questions. 

Hope that helps!
