Question

Is it possible that setting Slido in MS Live event (setup via Teams ) is working?

Hello, before reading that Microsoft doesn’t support running Slido in Live Events, I tried creating a test Microsoft Live Event (From Microsoft Teams Calendar) and it actually worked. Is there any update I missed? I need to be sure before running in org-wide. Also, there are org members who will be participants at the event who have E1 MS licences (they use only web based apps). Can they join and how? Than you in advance!

Hi @IVJANDA,

Thanks for reaching out and for your question. The latest update we have from Microsoft is that meeting apps such as Slido are not yet widely supported in Teams Live Events. The same applies to using web browser, where these apps are also not supported yet.

However, once Microsoft enables this in the future we’d love to make Slido available in both.

Best,

Mario.

Just checking when you say you created a live event, did you mean you had the choice to integrate the Slido App also with your Teams Live Event? I tried similar steps but can only add the Slido app to a Teams webinar or a Teams meeting. There is no option to add an app to a Live event that I can see? Please confirm in case we missed something from MS or Slido :-)

Hi, sorry for confusion, I was testing with multiple events and simply mixed Teams meeting and Live event. So there is no integration so far, but I found an easy solution. The event was streamed via Live Event as always, and when it was time for Slido, I just switched to another tab and run the quiz. It was interactive as we had quiz masters in small window and the quiz in another, and it went very well.  It was easy to handle.
