Question

Can I hide questions from other participants?

Hi!

So I know that participants can send in questions anonymously...but how do I stop everyone from seeing questions that have been asked, as in they only see their own questions?

Thanks!

I have this exact same question.  My client wants to be able to have an ‘off-stage moderator’ managing all the inbound questions from the moderator page.  That person approves/edits questions and sends them to a private ‘Present’ view for an ‘on-stage moderator’ who would be “on camera” with guests, asking the questions verbally to the panel.  We want the audience to be able to send in questions, but we don’t want the audience to see these ‘approved questions’ in case the panelists aren’t able to answer them.  We also can’t have the ‘on-stage moderator’ managing all the inbound questions because they’ll be “live on camera” and can’t dedicate that much time to review, that’s why they would be on the ‘Present’ screen, seeing only those questions that become pre-screened and approved by the ‘off-stage moderator’.  Is there a way to turn off the visibility of all questions to the audience, while still allowing them to enter new questions?

RWALEN I too have had experiences with this type of request: questions managed only by the moderator, passed to the speakers and NOT visible to the public.
The solution adopted in this case was:
- slido moderation on 
- the moderator answers privately to users, if necessary
- the moderator categorizes the questions  (with labels)
- the moderator passes the questions to the speakers through a separate channel that is NOT slido: for example, he reads questions verbally to the speaker or passes it to him through a private speaker / moderator communication channel

Hi, James, 

Thanks for your question!

You can do this with the Q&A moderation feature. If you turn it on, all the submitted questions will be visible only to you as admin unless you approve them. 

The feature is available in our higher paid plans - Professional, Premium, Enterprise, and Institution. 


To enable moderation in your event, go to: 

  1. Audience Q&A tab
  2. Click the “toggle icon” in the top center
  3. Toggle on the moderation


With moderation turned on, all the submitted questions will be visible only to you as admin in the “For review” window.


Your participants will see the “Waiting for review” tag next to their question.

Hi Slido team,

Is it possible to go one step further from this and approve questions (when in moderation mode) but only have the questions show in presenter mode? 

I.e. it doesnt show to everyone, only those in presenter mode?

Thanks

Hi there, 

thanks for using Slido Community, great question!

Currently, it’s not possible to show approved questions only in Present mode. 

With the moderation turned on, you can either leave the questions for review and your participants won’t see other questions than their own, or approve the relevant ones which will appear in both Present mode and Participant mode.  

However, the idea of having questions displayed only in Present mode is very interesting. I’ll definitely pass it to our product team for further consideration!

To do that, it would be great to understand why would this be beneficial for you. Would you mind elaborating a bit more? 

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
