Hi,I installed the Powerpoint-AddIn today (24th of January 21) but Slido is not automatically starting in ppt when I share it in presetation mode via Teams. When I share my desktop. It works. I understood from other discussions that this bug was known an that there was a bug fix by a higer slido version, but obvioulsy this is still not working. Any idea ? RegardsKatja
I have created one presentation with Slido interactions embedded.I am trying to creat a second presentation for a different event but I cannot create a new event through powerpoint (it only shows the first event) I created a new event on the slido website but I cannot see this event in powerpointHow do I resolve this?
For smoother transition between Powerpoint slides and Slido questions, I have found that it is best to set the Transition on your Slido slides, to none rather than fade or anything else. Otherwise you will see the Slido placeholder first before Slido loads the question webpage because that operation does not occur until the powerpoint transition is complete.
Hi, I was wondering if the following is possible, but can’t find anything. I want to run a poll during a presentation. However, once I go to a next slide, I want to keep the question open. I always have 1 “normal” slide and 1 polling slide. Is it possible that users can actually go back, once the new question is automatically displayed, but they want to keep adding their answer(s) to the prior question? Thank you!
I created a quiz in powerpoint, with normal slide interspersed between the Slido quiz slides. If a normal slide separates 2 Slido quiz slides then, the audience first sees “Get Ready” on the screen (see image) and the presenter needs to click again. “Get Ready” is not shown between consecutive Slido slides.Is there any way to skip this screen?thanksJosh
I’m running a quiz built using the powerpoint plugin. After each question, I am displaying a slide to explain the correct answer.I’d like to also display interim leaderboard along the way, but I want to display them after the answer explanation slide. The “Show leaderboard” option after each quiz question will show the interim leaderboard before the answer explanation slide that I created.Is there any other way to show an interim leaderboard or is that checkbox the only way to do it?thanksJosh
We’re considering switching from Menti beacuse of your better google slides integration. However, one thing that is holding me back is the open ended question format. Here Menti allows to show much more on one slide: Maybe this is something you can add/improve on slido?
Hi there,we're considering about switching from mentimeter to slido because of your google slide integration.However, one thing we miss is the ability to have multiple sliders on one slide. Is that something on your roadmap? There is a slide format as live polling from menti, where you can have multiple sliders like in the attachment.There is 3 things I like better in Menti then your ratings:1. Sliders are nicer than the bar of stars. Stars don't really fit certain questions (e.g. how scared are you doesn't relate well to "I am 5 stars scared").2. I can have multiple related sliders on one slide. Slido forces all sliders onto a new slide. This is very limiting.3. For large audiences, the distribution illustration is extremely valuable. If my team is split into two polarised extremes, the next steps have to be very different compared to everybody is centered. Both produce the same average however.
Hi, When I open Powerpoint I can see Slido. After pressing the box appears however I get a message stating ‘network error please check your connection and retry’. I have run the check.me and everything is green. I am on the internet so the network connect seems fine. Can you help?
As I can read, some other users had the same issues some months ago. I prepared the polls in Slido an try now to implement the existing ones in Powerpoint. But there are no polls.Sometimes I do see the event, but no polls, sometimes, I even don’t see the event. I have that problem for some weeks, now. It worked great over the last year. I work with the latest update and I am quite confuses and upset. What can or should I do?
I’m using presenter mode for PowerPoint and when I get to the Slido slide it pops out of presenter mode into a full screen display. When I press the arrow key to move to the next slide I am no longer in presenter mode, all I see is the full slide screen. Has anyone else encountered this issue? Thank you!
We’ve been using a lot of Slido integrated into our PPT presentations. Often we share, pause sharing to see our team in Zoom, and then reshare. When I return to sharing my screen and presenting PPT slides with Slido, the presentation starts at the beginning again, rather than resuming where we were. Is this a known issue and does anyone know how to prevent it?
Hello,we use a proxy device for Internet access, does anyone know what urls the slido add on uses to connect?We are able to connect to slido from any browser without any problems.When we try to connect via powerpoint, it needs further authentication.We have allowed https://powerpoint-addin.sli.do Thanks
Can different PowerPoint presentations refer to the same Slido event? I am planning to use in class. Sometimes, I’m not 100% sure how much will be covered in a single lecture. If I get to the end of one PowerPoint presentation, and want to start the next, can both of those presentations refer to the same Slide event? I don’t want to have to switch events in the middle of class.Or do I need to set up a new hashtag for each slide deck?
How can we suppress the autoupdate on the client? We use MS SCCM for the app deployment. When closing the app or PowerPoint it tries to make an update. Can this be suppressed, as the users have no right to install apps on their clients.?Thanks.
Hi,I was going to insert a poll into an already existing presentation using the PowerPoint plugin. When I press the button, on the right side of the screen I can’t see all the events I have in my (free) account. I see only one of them.If I do the same steps in a fresh presentation everything works fine and I can see all the events.I tried to copy the working slide from the fresh presentation to the already existing one but it doesn’t work.I tried to log out and in again but not solving the problem.Any idea?Thanks.

The Slido green button does not appear in the Home bar for me. I’ve downloaded Slido for Powerpoint three times and installed (and uninstalled, and reinstalled) it three times. I’ve restarted PowerPoint every time. I’m running Microsoft Office Home and Student 2016 (PowerPoint Version 2010, Build 13328.20356). I’d really like to use this tool, but how do I get it to integrate with PowerPoint?
Hi! I had installed slido for PPT and it was working perfectly, then I was collaborating on a PPT w/ a colleague, and their version of PPT is different than mine… so after they had edited the slides, the slido plugin no longer worked. I have un-installed and re-installed it 4+ times, and I still can’t get the plug in to show up in PPT again. Any ideas?
