Multiple rooms in Webex enables your participants to interact with different topics, presentations or brainstorming sessions while using a single Slido.

Create your rooms in advance when you want to use Slido for regular meetings using the same Slido, or for concurrent tracks at your events. 


Available in paid Webex plans. 

Slido is not supported in Webex breakout rooms. 

To make sure you can use Slido in Webex, check the current requirements and limitations in Webex Meetings and Webex Webinars first. 


In this article: 


Create and activate multiple rooms

To start, go to, click Log in > Login with Webex and enter your Webex credentials. Then, open your existing Slido (event) or create a new one. 

Once you’re in:

  1. Navigate to the gear icon to open Settings
  2. In General section scroll down to Multiple rooms
  3. Create your rooms and name them
  4. Activate or deactivate your rooms
  5. Prepare your polls and turn on the moderation for Q&A (if preferred)

Depending on your use case, you can name your rooms based on the meeting date, session topic or audience group. 

You can also change the color based on your company branding or your own preference and reorder the rooms if needed.

To switch the rooms, click the room name in the top right corner next to the gear icon:

Use multiple rooms in Webex for parallel sessions


Before opening Slido in Webex, make sure you’ve activated your rooms in first. Only active rooms will show in Webex.

As a webinar or meeting host, or as a person launching Slido in Webex meeting, you’ll see all active rooms in Slido sidebar:

Your participants will be automatically asked to select the room once you activate a poll:

If only one room is activated it will show automatically and the room selector won't display for either yourself, or your attendees. 



Use Slido in Webex for recurring meetings


You can use a single Slido for your regular meetings while keeping the polls and Q&A analytics separate for each of them.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. In General settings, set the dates to cover your preferred time period
  2. Create a room for each meeting or event based on the frequency
  3. Keep only the actual meeting active

For inspiration, here’s an example of recurring monthly all-hands meeting: 

  • Dates are set from the 1st January to 31st December
  • We customized the event code to #ourallhands2023 and
  • Named the rooms to reflect the month and type of the meeting: January 2023 All-Hands

The active room will automatically show for both you and your meeting participants when you add Slido to Webex. It will work the same way if it was a Slido without multiple rooms. 



Useful tips: 

  • Tip 1: Protect your data
    Make sure to secure your Slido with SSO or passcode. You can also customize your passcode if preferred. 
  • Tip 2: Explore analytics and download your results
    Once the meeting is over, go to the Analytics section where you can view the overall data or switch to the individual room analytics. To select a different room, navigate to the top right corner next to the gear icon.

    You can also download your polls and Q&A results. There’s separate sheet for each room in your your MS Excel export file.
