One of the ways for your audience to join an event is by scanning its unique QR code. There are two ways of how your participants can obtain it:

  • By scanning it directly from Slido Present mode during your event
  • Or you can download the event's QR code and share it with your audience beforehand

Your audience will simply scan the QR code with their phones to enter the event.

Available in all plans and turned on in all events by default.

Display the QR code in Present mode


Displaying Present mode to show questions, ideas, and poll results during your event is the ultimate way to drive interaction. To have the joining instructions available anytime, both the QR code and event code are visible in Present mode.


To display Present mode:

  1. In your event, click the Present mode button
  2. Select Present in fullscreen
  3. Alternatively, you can Copy Present mode link and open it in a new tab


🚀 Pro tip: Using QR code with company or event logo


If you uploaded a logo, the QR code will only be shown on the introduction screen in Present mode. When questions, polls, quizzes or ideas are displayed, the logo will replace the QR code on the left side.
