You can embed Slido into an event app to allow your participants to use all the features of Slido inside the app. Once Slido is integrated, they can use it quickly and easily without leaving the event app.

 

Selected apps we integrate with are DoubleDutch, Guidebook, Eventbase, Attendify, CrowdCompass, Socio & Attendease.


In this article:

  • Get the Slido link
  • Use the Slido link in the event app
  • Embed a specific Slido room


Get the Slido link

 

You can copy the direct link to a Slido event right from the Participant mode:

  1. Open Participant mode on the left side
  2. Click the three vertical dots
  3. Select Copy link to clipboard

Quick tip: Get separate links for Questions, Polls, or Ideas:
You can navigate your participants directly to Questions, Ideas or Polls and Surveys if you have multiple menu items available in your app. Just add /questions/pollsor /ideas to your event link to do so.

 

Example links:

Questions: https://app.sli.do/event/n3xbwn8w/questions

Polls: https://app.sli.do/event/n3xbwn8w/polls

Ideas: https://app.sli.do/event/n3xbwn8w/ideas

 

Using the Slido link in the event app

 

To insert Slido link into your event app:

  1. Open your event app settings
  2. Enable the ability to integrate link (WebView)
  3. Enter the link to your event app

 

Here's an example of integration with Attendify:

Embed a specific Slido room

 

If you wish to embed a specific Slido room into your app, you need to get the URL of that respective room. To do so:

  1. In your Slido event, select the room you wish to embed and hover over the green Present button in the upper right corner
  2. Select Copy Present link
  3. Replace "wall" in the URL with "app" and paste it into the event app

 

Example link: https://app.sli.do/event/jmq0hgb9?section=04d69a05-96d7-43fc-a1b3-0321a3f1c18c

 

Useful tips:

  • Pro tip: Embed Slido event with query parameters
    If you'd like to embed Slido int the event app behind the registration page, you can use query parameters for it. For more information, read the respective section about query parameters in our Embed Slido to your website article.
