Slido is not available with Webex for Government.

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 using the ‘Log in with Webex’ option.

Setting up your Slido organization

We create your Slido organization will be created automatically. You don't need to prepare; however, you might want to perform the following actions:

  • 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.
