Question

Managing quizzes in multiple rooms

Hi

we have an event where we are using SLIDO to run a quiz. It is a one time professional subscription. The quiz is live and live streamed. We therefore have two distinct audiences (live and online) that we want to keep separate but who are competing in the same quiz at the same time and seeing/doing everything the same (except for time lag -see below). The quiz is being live streamed on YouTube and participants will play the quiz via SLIDO on separate devices. We will operate the SLIDO to sync with what is happening in the live quiz.

I have set up multiple rooms (1 for the online participants and 1 for the live audience). For the online audience, there is a potential problem with a time lag with what is happening live and being live streamed on youtube  and what the people playing online will see via SLIDO - ie while we can sync the SLIDO quiz with the live event, for the live audience this may be out of sync  ie apparently up to 30 seconds between what happened live and when the online players will see it. So is it possible to operate the two rooms separately. That is we can have one person operating SLIDO to sync with the live quiz for those playing the quiz in the live audience and have another person watching the YouTube livestream and operating the other room separately to sync the SLIDO with what is happening on the livestream feed? And if so, what do we need to do to make this work?

 

Also how do we show leaderboards for each room separately - ie so the different audience can see who in the live audience is leading (or the winner) and who in the online audience is leading (or is winner). What is below from one of your web pages sounds relevant, but I don’t understand it, I’m afraid, especially what this wall.sli.do is?

 

Getting a permanent link of the Participant mode in a specific room is useful if you want your audience to join your event using a link and you want them to immediately join the desired room.

 

To get the link, please first follow the steps above for getting a Present mode link. Once you have it, simply rewrite wall.sli.do to app.sli.do.

Hey @JasonM,

Yes, you can set up two quizzes in two rooms and operate them separately - polls in different rooms don’t affect each other. Here is our tutorial for setting up rooms:


If you’re going to have different people activating questions in different rooms, make sure you give them back-end access to the event by inviting them as guests. Also, keep in mind that you will need to ask participants to switch rooms based on whether they are attending live or online - they can see a button to switch rooms when they join Slido.

As to your second question - you can only show one leaderboard in Slido at a time, but you can switch the room shown in Present mode.

Alternatively, you can open two browser tabs, each showing one leaderboard and you can show each group their corresponding browser tab. Here is how you can show leaderboards from different rooms in separate tabs:

  1. Open Present mode
  2. Copy the link
  3. Open a new browser tab and paste the link
  4. Change the rooms in present mode in one of the tabs

Hope this helps! :) 

Thanks that sort of helps - the tutorial you sent me to is the one that generated the questions. I guess I will have to play

I do have another question: I need to appoint a co-administrator to help develop the quiz event and manage the event on the day, yet when I go to do this it says my plan does not allow this. We have the premium ($900) on-time plan - the top plan.

Hi @JasonM 

On your plan, you should be able to share access with a guest collaborator to moderate your event. Could you advise what error you get when trying to add them? It could be that your company is set up with SSO or that you’re not the owner of the event. Is this possible?

Let me know if you have any more questions! 

I have already set up my colleague as a guest collaborator, but I was hoping he could have the same admin rights as I do as the owner. I guess I can give him my login details and that would be one way to get around it, but I thought that surely it would be standard to have more than one person working on setting up a SLIDO event and therefore to have access to the backend of SLIDO to edit and change things - there is a limit to what the guest collaborator can do.

 

I checked the SSO link and  given I was the one who signed us up then I guess I am an SSO, but I have no idea what the following means in your instructions - specifically what “Exclude Guests” means. What happens if I exclude my colleague - will he lose guest collaborator status and then what??

Allow inviting external guests when SSO is set for your Slido Organization


If you're using single sign on (SSO) for your Slido organization, you can only invite people who are already members of the organization. To allow guests to log in without SSO, the organization owner needs to enable the option Exclude guests from SSO in the Member SAML/SSO settings under Organization settings.

Hi @JasonM

So we can take a closer look, I think you need to contact our customer care team here so we can better understand your set up so we can go through your options here.. You can email them at support@slido.com or alternatively, access live chat through your slido admin. 

Thanks!
