We want students to click the PowerPoint and be able to access the interactive Slido content and code??

It never shows the code, it always just shows the question with no option to join in?

Hi @SU Glos

When Slido is integrated to PowerPoint, only the admin (and guest collaborators who have been added to the event) will be able to open the presentation and click through the Slido interaction points. 

The reason for this, is because the admin part is integrated to the presentation, hence your event under your login credentials. 

However, I see that you’re using PowerPoint live, is that correct? 

The integration works with Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 or newer. We currently don’t support PowerPoint Online nor PowerPoint Live :( 

As a workaround maybe sharing a  direct link to the survey, quiz, or poll could do the trick? 


Hi @SU Glos, we do not support the PowerPoint Online viewer or PowerPoint Live in Microsoft Teams.

Slido requires the desktop version of PowerPoint to display the live content.

When Microsoft will make changes to PowerPoint Online so it can be extended as the desktop version, we will add support for it.


Best regards,
