Before your event or meeting starts, we recommend testing Slido.

 

If you purchased a paid plan, don't you worry! Testing your event won't make it expire.

 

You can either test Slido directly from your Admin or use a second device (such as a smartphone) to fully simulate the experience of your participants.

  • Test directly from your Admin
  • Delete testing questions or reset poll results
     

Test directly from your Admin


The easiest way to test your event is by using the Participant mode widget which you can find on the left-hand side of your Admin. Simply open it when you want to send a testing question or try voting in a poll - or if you want to test anything else from your audience's perspective!

Once done, don’t forget to hit the green Present mode button (in the upper-right corner) to simulate showing Slido to your audience.

Try voting in a poll

 

Please make sure that your poll is active before voting. You can activate a poll by hitting the green play button next to it.

Test using a smartphone


Alternatively, you can also simulate the experience of your participants by joining your Slido event using an actual smartphone (or any other device you have at hand). Simply go to slido.com and type in your event code.

If you're doing your testing before the set event dates, you'll see your event listed as Upcoming. In that case, select your event from the list below to join it.

 

If your event is more than 45 days away, please test it directly from your Admin or using an event link which can be used to access the event at any time.


Try sending a question


Once you enter the event, you can send testing questions using your smartphone.


If you wish, you can check Slido Admin on your primary device (computer) to see the questions appear, along with the Present mode to simulate showing Slido to your audience.


Try voting in a poll


To test your polls, make sure you activate one first in your Admin by hitting the green play button next to it.


Afterwards, cast a vote to see the results update in real-time and make sure everything runs smoothly. 

 

Once again, if you wish, you can check Slido Admin on your primary device (computer), along with the Present mode to simulate showing poll results to your audience.

 

Delete testing questions and reset poll results


Once you finish testing, you can delete all submitted testing questions and reset poll results before running your actual meeting.
