Slido is great to use for live meetings, whether in person or via video conference; we mostly use this for Zoom meetings. You can use the different features at different times in your meeting: I love to start our All Hands meetings with a word cloud or a poll of some kind, and as people are joining via zoom it gets people feeling excited and connected even before we've started. It also gives us something fun to talk about while we're waiting for everyone to arrive and for the meeting to start. You can do a poll halfway through to keep people engaged, and then a poll at the end to see how you did, or maybe use the Q&A to see what questions come up without having the awkward zoom silence when you ask if anyone has any questions. I don't think this is helpful in smaller meetings, where people likely feel more comfortable interacting directly and asking questions verbally.

Well suited: - leadership communication. When our CEO posts a video to all company - it always gets the highest engagement - recognition/achievements posts - live streams for education, knowledge sharing - we are a company of 12000 associates and there is no other corporate channel for us to gather more than 500 people in one place. Less appropriate: - sharing some very targetted messages - it's impossible to do at Workplace without creating a group. So we use email channel for such targetted communications - instant communication like in a chat (probably it's less appropriate in our specific case because we use MS Teams for such quick communication instead of WP chats)
Read full review Pros The Slido overview is very helpful for us to understand the engagement level of our audience during the meeting. The multiple options to get feedback, answers, to interact with the audience (i.e., Live poll, Audience Q&A). The templates library is brilliant! The possibility to answer and ask to questions and provide feedback anonymously. Read full review Bring groups of people together to share info, stories, updates, etc. The chat app is pretty decent. Workplace Live is a good large-group meeting broadcast platform. It's pretty intuitive to use for anyone who's used Facebook. It provides different levels of "security" for groups, allowing you to have open, closed, and "secret" groups. It's easy to paste images into your posts and comments, without having to necessarily go through the process of saving an image as a file, etc. It has search capabilities for finding old information. It's available for both desktop/laptop and mobile devices. It's secured to allow only those within the company to see company-related info (but it also has a few inter-company groups, which can be useful, too). Workplace Chat has the ability to set it to Do Not Disturb. You can set notifications, including email notifications, if you want to be alerted to new activity in your groups, etc. You can use Markdown to format your text Read full review Cons Pricing Model - free version is quite limited and the package prices can be more attractive for SME companies User Interface Complexity - the UX in the backend is good, but sometimes I am confused to find a specific function Real time translation would be great in terms of accessibility Read full review It would be helpful if a review confirmation checkbox was able to be placed by files that needed to be read or reviewed. Along the same line, approve, review again, etc. would be helpful checkboxes to add by files, proposals. The layout is clean but suffers a bit from the center column width with two sidebars and a lot of empty space. It almost looks like a going out of business sale retail store where you notice the empty shelves. Workplace feels a bit bare at times. I think some good design modifications can help. Now on mobile, it is a great layout. I am addressing specifically the desktop browser login. An admin control dashboard would be really effective and even more so with more users on the platform.

Slido has one of the most intuitive Dashboards I've ever seen. It's easy to use and easy to manage. I've extensively used Polls and Quizzes and it works like a charm, every time.

Having to download multiple apps just to use the tool is very cumbersome. Facebook would have make this better by wrapping it in as a main feature within their app, but having to use multiple apps to see discussions and walls is so frustrating.

The communication I've had directly from Slido was very professional and sets an excellent impression for the tone of the company.

Workplace by Facebook is an excellent fit in respect of support and documentation. It has excellent tutorials and documentation, as well. The UI and UX are already great as it is developed and maintained by Facebook, so most of the times, there is no need for any support or documentation.

It's as simple as just Microsoft Word Visual Basic. We used to use that. Just a lot more cumbersome with the program and setup. Can be buggy depending on the browser operating system that you're running it on. Nothing specific for surveys. This was the first one we got that's officially for a survey that I know of. I've been there for about five years.

Workplace by Facebook is so much more than just a project management tool like
. The ability to disseminate information to employees is easier and better with Workplace by Facebook. It can also be used for informal messaging and sharing of information. It combines the best features of both with the same look and feel as Facebook.
Read full review Return on Investment It helps us keep participants' attention during online workshops, which can be long and tiring. Slido is a lightweight – it doesn't take forever to load – and intuitive tool, which has been encouraging user participation. The learning curve of the tool is very low, which does not discourage users. Read full review We can meet the project times, that with the communication in real time. We provide solutions to our suppliers in a reliable and efficient manner. When a business can save time and at the same time respond to the demands of customers, this translates into greater market capture of action for the company.
