Slido is an easy-to-use Q&A and polling app that allows you to engage your participants at any kind of meeting, live or virtual. It helps drive meaningful conversations at scale by empowering the audience to ask questions and voice their opinion in live polls. From December 2, 2021, Slido will be available for all of your meeting hosts through the Apps button in Webex Meetings.
To learn more about how your company can leverage Slido to improve meetings across your organization, reach out to your Customer Success Manager.
How Slido works for your users
When a Webex meeting host uses Slido for the first time, they automatically get a new Slido user account. The account is created in your Webex-linked Slido organization.
The host manages Slido interactions from the Webex App.
To prepare Slido events/interactions in advance, or to access Slido data after the meeting, hosts need to sign in to Slido at https://admin.sli.do/ using the ‘Log in with Webex’ option.
To learn about creating and managing Slido events, users can read https://community.sli.do/setting-up-and-running-slido-41.
Setting up your Slido organization
Your Slido organization will be created automatically. If you don't want your organization to be part of the automatic rollout, you can opt out by November 25, 2021.
You don't need to take any additional steps, however, there are some additional settings you can configure:
Adding additional Slido account administrators
Claiming your domains
Setting up a data retention policy
Merging any existing Slido licenses/accounts
Allowing guest access to your Slidos from outside your organisation
Microsoft Edge WebView2 is required to use Slido when on Windows computers. We recommend you push this component to your Windows users before you enable Slido. Otherwise, Slido prompts users to install it on first use. Download and install can take several minutes which could impact your meeting experience.
You can learn how to do all of this and more in Integrate Slido with Webex App, ignoring the Control Hub setup. Please note that settings don't carry over from your Webex organization.
