We made a few changes to Slido admin sidebar in Webex to improve your experience during meetings and webinars. 


 

Introducing new look of Slido sidebar in Webex


Updated 26 May: The new sidebar in Webex is now live for everyone by default!
Updated 20 July: New settings were added to the Slido sidebar in Webex

 

What’s new: 

 

Intuitive user experience and modern look


The new interface is designed specifically for use in Webex. It’s simplified and easy to navigate. If you’re yet to get to know Slido, tooltips and system messages will help you get the most out of it.

For dark mode lovers, we now have dark mode support. Accessibility requirements are also fully supported.

Old vs New look of Slido in Webex sidebar

 

New word cloud results (on the left) vs the old look

 

New polls design, support for quiz and results download

 

With redesigned polls, you can now see the word cloud the same way as your participants. Simplified flow lets you easily create and run a quiz. Downloading poll results and Q&A directly from the sidebar is also possible.   

 

Download poll results option right in the sidebar via hamburger menu


Localization support

The default language is now set automatically based on the Webex setting.


 

Current limitations


For now, there are a couple of things that are not yet available in the new sidebar. We’ll be working on them in the upcoming weeks:
 

  • Images cannot be uploaded to a poll question.
    Coming soon. 
     
  • Multiple rooms cannot be created.

    We’re planning on adding this feature in the new design, too. 

     

You can switch back to the old view at any time, if you need images to work in the meantime. You can find the option at the bottom of the menu.

In the newest Webex Update, Slido got a new lovely look! But its missing some key features 😅

First off there is no Agenda in the new look, the questions are uncategorized, this is a huge step back.

Second of all, the option to show each question from the survey with the correct answer has disappeared 🙁 I noticed its still possible to show the correct answer when I run it trough Slido admin, but that is quite time consuming and irritating for some of my colleague to have an extra app just be able to use Slido in Webex, when Webex already had this Slido. Did these features get removed or is it just not created for the new look yet?

 

PS: I just figured out its till possible to switch to the old look 😄 so everything works fine there, but I would love to know if the “switch back” option is going to stay till the new look gets finalized 👍🏼 

 

thanks in advance!

Hey Patrik,

We’re still working on this new look and we do appreciate all the feedback we can get, so thank you!

In this case, more features are about to come to the new look, we’re still deciding how it will look as a final version, so I’m glad you mentioned this, and I’m passing it to our team.

If you’d need anything else, please do let us know, we’re happy to help :)
