Slido is being used by several departments inside the organization. It solves the problem of organizing questions to be answered during a presentation. It also solves the problem to allow anonymous questions about the subject being presented. Sometimes it's used together with others questions and answers tool, but usually it's the main tool where we can ask questions.
  • Questions can be anonymous.
  • Simple to set up.
  • Allow to vote for questions.
  • It's hard to follow new questions being added to list.
  • When the organizer removes the question, it is not visible anymore.
  • It would be good to allow grouping similar questions to be answered together.
Slido is well suited when a presenter wants to collect and answer questions from the audience. The questions can be anonymous or have their author identified. The questions can also be filtered by the presenter and can be voted by the audience to be answered first. It's not well suited when the presenter wants that people participate in other ways that's not just asking questions.

Slido is currently being used across the whole organization, as multiple departments and divisions use it for internal meetings such as a divisional meeting, as well as external meetings like conferences, working groups, and other events (both in person and virtual). It addresses the business problems of running question and answer segments of events, as well as improvised polls and surveys within an event.
  • Great user interface, very easy to learn and use from the front-end to back.
  • Easy for event attendees to access thanks to the intuitive event code system.
  • Easy to set up q&a segments, including moderation and reddit-style up-voting to ensure the best questions are seen and answered.
  • The data exporting section could be simpler.
  • The actual data exported from Slido can sometimes be a bit messy and less straightforward than one would expect.
Slido is well suited for any event where computers or smartphones are present alongside a cellular or internet connection. This includes internal events such as a company-wide meeting or divisional meeting, possibly even for larger departments as well. Likewise for external events such as large conferences and working groups. Slido would be less suited for meetings among members of a small team or an external meeting with a very limited number of attendees, as matters would likely just be discussed and voted on verbally.

I use Slido at my classes and there are other some colleagues who are using it. I usually use it as an ice-breaker and also to get my students engaged. It is helpful when I use it to ask about the initial knowledge of the audience about the topic I am covering as it gives me an idea to which extent the audience is familiar with the topic so I can adjust my pace of facilitation.
  • Multiple choice questions are very helpful and audiences like it.
  • When I use open text polls and convert them into a word cloud.
  • Very simple and user-friendly, it even supports Arabic language.
  • Technically, I do not see an area that requires attention.
  • I wish they'd increase the number of free polls or reduce the fees.
It is always useful to start the lecture with and ask the audience about their knowledge or some topic. I think it fits in all times and scenarios.
It is just a wonderful tool and platform.

Slido is currently being used in many areas of our local business. We have invested in a number of licences to be able to utilise the full range of Slido features but from time to time are able to utilise the free Slido options that are available. The main accounts are used for large company wide presentations at roadshows and quarterly/yearly business updates, whereas the free version can be used to gain engagement at smaller ad-hoc group sessions where feedback and interaction is important and Slido offers an anonymous way of answering polls and asking questions where people may not feel confident speaking up. It also helps others have a visual of poll results and other questions being asked as well as giving them the option to vote for questions they support.
  • Polls - The Slido polls are excellent for gauging the knowledge of your audience.
  • Q&A - People can post questions to be answered. These are visible for others to see and can receive votes to push them higher up the priority list of getting answered first. The host can then mark the question as answered once done, so they can move on to the next burning topic.
  • Anonymity - Users can post anonymously, giving them confidence to ask questions they may otherwise feel nervous about.
  • Slido can be slow on a web browser and I often find I have to use my mobile to effectively run a presentation.
In my experience Slido has been excellent for stand alone group sessions of circa 80 people all the way up to road shows with thousands of people over several days. I haven't seen much use for it in smaller group settings of 15 or below.
The communication I've had directly from Slido was very professional and sets an excellent impression for the tone of the company.
