If you’re new to using Slido in Webex, understanding the Slido competencies for different Webex roles in meetings and webinars might be useful.

 

In this article:

 

To make sure you can use Slido in Webex, read the essential requirements and current limitations first. 

 

 

Slido standalone roles overview

 

There are four roles in Slido:


Owner
A person who registered for an account in standalone Slido or a person who enables and configures Slido in Webex Control Hub.


Admin
A member of a paid Slido/Webex license (purchased by the owner) with multiple users/members, and advanced competencies similar to an owner. 


User

A member of a paid license with multiple users/members.


Collaborator

A person added to a single Slido to help out with managing polls and Q&A.
 

By default, external collaborators (from outside of your Slido/Webex license) are disabled in your Slido/Webex organization. You can enable external guests in your Slido account settings. 



Here’s a brief overview of Slido roles:

  • Owner and admins can assign roles to other members of the license
  • Owners, admins, and users can create and manage their own Slidos
  • Users can’t see other members’ Slidos
  • Collaborators can help manage polls and Q&A
  • Collaborators can be assigned only to single Slido at the time
  • External collaborators don’t have access to Slido settings

Webex Meetings roles overview

 

Here’s an overview of Slido competencies for particular roles in Webex Meetings:

  • Host, cohost, and participant (excluding meeting guest) can launch and manage Slido polls and Q&A
  • Cohost or meeting participant can only launch Slido if the host has not added Slido to the meeting first
  • Host, cohost or a participant who added Slido to the meeting can invite collaborators to help them manage Slido via slido.com during the meeting or in advance
  • Cohosts (not invited as collaborators) can request collaborator access to the host’s or participant’s Slido during the meeting
  • Collaborators can manage Slido polls and Q&A
  • Meeting participants can vote in polls and send in questions to Q&A
  • Participants in the room (hybrid setup) can join Slido outside of Webex at slido.com (via direct link, scanning QR code or typing the Slido event code)
