  • Slido integrates well with Microsoft PowerPoint which is very much useful for us.
  • The post poll dashboard reports are very much insightful.
  • Shareable links are created easily with Slido. Also, this saves a lot of time and manual effort for us.
  • The ability to interact with this application via a smart phone needs some improvement.
  • I feel the cost of the product is slightly high and can be reduced.
  • More anonymous options should be introduced in the instant feedback menu.

  • Live polls are great.
  • Slido code to ask any question during the event.
  • I love that it has dark mode as well.
  • I didn't understand on what basis text is bigger or smaller in the word cloud. That's confusing for me. Maybe Slido can think about it.

  • Its integration with various Webex apps like Webex Meetings and Webex Webinars and leading softwares like Zoom and Google Slides
  • Its simple user interface and eye-catching graphics
  • The detailed analytics it provides of the polls and surveys conducted and the ability of exporting them
  • The ability of integrating live video into Slido so participants dont have to switch tabs
  • Participants can ask questions anonymously or with their names without having to unmute themselves and disturbing the flow of the meeting
  • More integration options should be provided to maximize its use case
  • More customisation features and templates should be added for the polls and quizzes
  • More pricing plans should be introduced so we can chose the plan that suits us perfectly and is more cost-effective

  • Real Time Polling with large audiences
  • Upvoted Q&A
  • Analytics after events
  • Integrations with i.e. PowerPoint and Google Sheets
  • Easy to use for admins and participants
  • 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

  • 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.
  • There's no option to edit a response to a live Q&A or Poll.
  • There's no Keynote integration on mac.
  • I love Slido, it is easy to use and integrate, but I'd like to see more customization options.

  • It just works. You put up a survey, you put in what you wanted to say in multiple-choice or enter your own free type. And it just works. It's easy to get the results back instantaneously, as well as providing some visualization, pie charts, graphs, that kind of thing, and see what's in the lead. It could be as simple as picking what kind of food for the next company, pizza or tacos or whatever, and it kind of rates them and it just works. That's what's intended.
  • I think maybe visually to have different skins for it, just to kind of add some additional flare company logo, you know, something that would make it more customized for your organization. Or even just stylizing, like if it's a Cinco de Mayo party, you a Mexican theme, stuff like that I think would be nice. But that's all just flare, functionality wise it's flawless.

  • 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.

  • In-meeting polling
  • In-meeting Q&A
  • In-meeting engagement
  • I miss the Slack integration; they used to have this and they deprecated it in the last year or so.
  • I believe they have a nice integration for PowerPoint, would be nice if they had something similar with google slides since that is what we typically use internally.
  • We use the word cloud feature often and sometimes answers seem to get lost (as in don't show up at all) on the screen. for example, an answer will be there, then as more answers come in it disappears, and when we get to a certain threshold of answers it somehow pops back up again. It's not the worst but sometimes someone will ping me that their submission didn't make the word cloud and they're bummed.

  • gives immediate interactive feedback inside meetings
  • has great downloadable analytics as well as online graphical reports
  • works easily on mobile inside a Webex or independent of a meeting or using Microsoft Teams or Zoom
  • I'd like the QR code to be scanned from INSIDE the app. Why only be able to enter the code? Let us use the camera inside the app to scan and launch Slido
  • a few more fun graphics
