How do you run a quiz so that people can go through questions at their own pace?

Hi @AlexanderJMorrissey

Thanks so much for your feedback here, I will certainly add you to the list of customers requesting this feature and pass it on to the wider team for consideration. 

We wouldn’t be able to advise a timescale or whether this is a feature that will be adopted soon. Whilst we do care about our customers concerns and experience with Slido, there are some other features that have taken priority with our developers. 

Our quizzes are currently designed to be presented live during an event in Slido. The best asynchronous workaround we currently have is running a survey. You can even create a  permanent link to your survey with the option to  merge your polls in a survey for your participants to answer in their own time. 

If you’d like to tell us more about your use case so we can enable you to use Slido in the best way for your company, you can contact us via our live chat through Slido admin, or by emailing support@slido.com, We’ll be happy to help you out! 

 

Hi, 

Is there a way to set a time limit to the survey questions? We’re trying to launch an asynchronous quiz with a time limit to the questions to prevent the participants from googling and finding out the answers. 
Would love any thoughts or ideas to carry this out. 

Thank You!

Hi @Jefferson_Twelve

Setting a time limit on asynchronous features is not part of Slido’s design. You can only run a quiz, which is currently only designed to go live. Surveys are more likely used for participants to answer in their own time, which is why we haven’t got any time limitations. 

I will pass this on as feedback to the wider team though! 

let me know if you have any more questions!

 

Would like to also submit request/vote for asynchronous quiz function in Slido. The main benefit would be instant grading of the quiz without a moderator being involved. An example would be a scavenger hunt activity ala The Amazing Race where the players would access the asynchronous quiz on their cells and know right away if they passed in order to move to the next station.

I completely agree with the above requests.  This would be such a good tool for audience engagement during event breaks and treasure hunt activities, I’m really disappointed the functionality doesn’t exist in Sli.do already.  Please develop it soon - you will make a lot of people happy! 😊
