What is Slido?

Slido is an audience interaction platform that helps users to get the most out of meetings and events by crowdsourcing top questions and engaging participants with live polls and quizzes. From internal communications professionals to team leaders, conference organizers, and individual presenters, Slido can be used by those looking to enable open conversation at a live or virtual meeting. Slido works with popular video conferencing and presentation platforms and integrates with Microsoft Teams, PowerPoint, and Google Slides.

Since its foundation in 2012, Slido boasts having been used at over 1.2 million events and engaged 55 million active participants. Slido has been adopted by high-profile clients including Asana, BBC, Oracle, and conferences such as SXSW, Web Summit, and Money20/20. Slido was acquired by Cisco May, 2021, to enhance Webex interactivity.

We were looking for a simple platform for Question and Answer time in our organizations staff meetings.
Slido provided that and has allowed us to moderate and reply easily. The choice of QR code or the event hash tag to connect means 99.9% of people can use it with no trouble at all as most people are familiar with both concepts.
The fact that people can ask questions anonymously is another big plus for the environment we use Slido in.
  • Scheduling events easily
  • QR codes
  • Very stable
  • Post event analytics
  • Webex integration can be a little slow at times
  • Changing between Slido sessions in Webex on the side ribbon can be confusing
We found Slido is great for a number of uses in our organization. In the higher education environment people are often scared to ask questions because they don't want to look or sound silly. Giving people the ability to ask anonymously gets the dialogue flowing pretty quickly most of the time. We have found it useful in the classroom environment but also for professional staff in meetings.

I organise and manage events for our SEMCAN committee - Sydney Early and Mid Career Academic Network. WE use Slido to gather data on the participants that engage with our events, such as writing groups, diversity and inclusions workshops and viral video competitions. Slido is usually issued at the end or during the events via direct links in the Zoom, or follow-up emails, or QR codes for printed posters. Slido is handy because it is easy to set-up and duplicate questionnaires as well as share them with wider audiences. Slido is also used in teaching, to gather feedback on a weekly basis.
  • Intuitive and easy to-use web interface
  • plenty of question type options
  • easy to copy and modify exasting questionnaires
  • The visualisation of results can be more visually pleasing
  • More options to imbed media (such as images or videos)
Post or Pre-event (workshop, class or seminar) questionnaires, to gather participants data, or their feedback on the content, methods and interactions during the event. Each questionnaire can be also shared with the organising team members, which can be very handy.

Slido helps us make presentations more interactive by fielding Q&A from large audiences to getting live responses and feedback.
  • Question and answer fielding from large audiences
  • Tracking Attendance
  • Live results
  • Slide pairing
  • Detailed analytics
  • Better ease of use
Slido is very good when presenting for a large audience; however, they are sometimes unnecessary and overkill for smaller forums. It is sometimes better to have closer human-to-human interaction, and it feels like Slido gets rid of that aspect of presentations by making things more anonymized.

We use slido in the majority of our events to engage our audiences with polls, quizzes and questions. Now that Slido is integrated to Webex our events run much more smoothly and we have a lot of feedback on how engaged attendees feel
  • Polling
  • Quizes
  • Q&A
  • A chat feature is required especially when using with Webex Events so that attendees only have one app to communicate with event hosts and panelists - currently they use slido app on phones to answer polls etc but have to chat to panelists via Webex webinars / events
Slido is excellent for attendee engagement in events and meetings of more than 10 people where you would like to gather feedback on questions / agenda items etc. Smaller numbers can also utilise the tool especially if they have specific agenda items that need to be voted on anonymously or in person. We love that you can pre-populate the Slido questions and easily integrate them to powerpoint

Slido has improved and streamlined our attendee interaction with our conferences. Our format is three 20-minute technical presentations followed by 15 minutes of Q/A. first to find out how everyone is feeling but also so that we comment on the strategies that are being discussed and get feedback from everyone. And the insights of all these inputs are just so accurate.
  • quizzes
  • slides
  • polls
  • Q&A
  • It's difficult to follow new questions be add to list.
  • increase the number of free polls or reduce the fees.
My company uses Slido for monthly team meetings and we use all of Slido features such as polls as it would take forever to ask all team members for opinions and ideas and we use quizzes for newcomers for training and Q&A for any further questions.

According to how it has behaved our study statistics have improved because of the accuracy of doing quizzes at the moment and then being able to share what we have learned, it solves many problems as well as brings other tools such as the Leaderboard which is very good for young people and healthy competition among them.

My organization is using Slido to make all attendees interact and be involved which helped us to get more ideas than regular talking, with everyone participating we were able to make better decisions by asking polls, quizzes, Q&A, and getting feedback from everyone. And the insights of all these inputs are just so accurate.
  • Quizzes, Q&A and polls.
  • Insights of inputs.
  • Integration with office apps.
  • If there is a co-host to create polls and quizzes.
  • Insights sometimes gets buggy but it's improving with each update.
  • Maybe reduce the fees.
Slido is well suited for educational purposes when you want all attendees to participate and involve but without taking so much time and here come q&a, polls, and quizzes where all attendees will be able to participate. Slido is less appropriate for a new product releasing you don't want interactivity here.

We use it to include the whole work department in the opinions of making important decisions, such as the different changes that are made to keep the always renewed way of studying our clients. Slido helps us to make it easier to give opinions and we like that there are different tools that can be used for this.
  • The easy use of developing questions.
  • That the data is in real time.
  • Its functionality in cell phones.
  • The results recount system.
I like to use it when we have work meetings because it comes with many benefits because the results are instant, but also when used with other apps it is difficult to have it next to me because people do not use it because it is somewhat difficult. But with different improvements, it could be used more often in the facilities.

We use Slido in our team meetings, first to find out how everyone is feeling but also so that we comment on the strategies that are being discussed. It is a fast and efficient way to get the opinion of others. Love it!
  • Create Cloud words
  • Vote for something
  • Share opinions
  • reporting... might be good to create custom resports base of the data used and the attendees
APPROPIATE - At meetings where you want to "hear" from the team and to might be a big group so not all will have the opportunity to talk - When you want to take a fast decision on something simple (black or white) and allow the people to vote LESS APPROPIATE - if you want that people participate actively (talking not just sending their comment)

I use Slido for virtual training events with a significant number of people as audience, with the intention of making this part more dynamic, giving more participation to attendees and greater fluency in the presentation. It helps me control questions from attendees, allows to add polls in real time for viewers to answer. It is very simple to use, the events are created in a short time and easily, and then share the generated url with the attendees of the event so that they can start asking questions or vote on the most interesting questions so that they are answered first by the speaker I control all the questions asked by the public, I can moderate them, see the results of the polls and edit the details of the event.
  • Polls
  • It would be great if it integrates with Cisco Webex Events

  • Easy to get people to sign in

  • Should be able to see results on screen
I find it is well suited for any meeting.

Slido is used to engage meeting participants, capture feedback, ice breakers, quizzes, and generally keep the audience interested and paying attention. It's helpful to gather information before meetings that can be used to prepare meeting content. We can gather post meeting analytics and reports for follow up with meeting participants.
  • Polling
  • Testing
  • Word clouds
  • Ease of use as integrated app within Webex Meetings
  • Allow for co-host of meeting launch and manage Slido polls
Slido is well suited for any types of meetings, events, trainings, team meetings, etc. Any instances where you need audience interaction would be the best example. It probably would be less used in more formal business meetings.

Slido has improved and streamlined our attendee interaction with our conferences. Our format is three 20-minute technical presentations followed by 15 minutes of Q/A. With Slido, attendees are able to ask the question when it pops into their head and then the group can up-vote the questions that most interest them. During the Q/A we were able to double the number of questions we could get answered and help the majority of people to get their curiosity satisfied.
  • crowd interaction
  • Question and answer session
  • Quick and innovative display of answers
  • It takes a dedicated person to run the app
  • We have to spend time getting people in the app and logged in to our event
  • most people are using a small phone to participate - harder to see and use on the small space
Slido is great when you have a large event and financial support. It is not appropriate to integrate into our daily trainings as the time to get the audience online and the cost is prohibitive.

I am using Slido to get feedback from users on how meetings or training sessions have been delivered, to act as CSAT information. I am also demoing Slido to clients to share with them the recent Webex updates and integration with Slido. It adds another layer of interaction to a meeting and can be a useful tool to collate more information from meeting participants.
  • Gathering responses from a large number of participants at one time
  • Collating results in an easy-to-read format
  • Easy to access
  • Having multiple people be able to manage Slido during a meeting
Slido is ideal to use in meetings where you want to gather opinions and feedback in the form of surveys. With multiple options for how to pose the questions in the survey, you can find the right format to match the question you are asking, whether it be multiple choice or word clouds. With the rating format, you get ratings at the end of a training session, then you can use those results to create a CSAT.

Slido is being used with WebEx Meetings and Microsoft Teams meetings to create live polls, Q&As, etc. We also use it with WebEx Events.
  • Live polls & results
  • Live Q&A
  • Live quiz & challenges
  • Analytics tool of Slido is a little buggy and sometimes doesn't show complete names of participants
  • Slido caused issues initially with integrations with WebEx but now with every update is improving
It is the best tool if you want to host live polls, Q&A, quizzes, challenges, and want real-time results and analytics.

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.
