Using Slido in PowerPoint presentation and Webex

I am looking to present my PowerPoint over Webex. I will also have some multimedia embedded in the slides. Typically this would be done by sharing a file, but I don’t think I can run the Slido features this way. How can I do both?

Hi @bandpwise

Ok, just to be sure were on the same page, let me start from the beginning. :) 

To have both Slido in your presentation + Webex, you’ll need to add your event to your PowerPoint presentation ( only available for Windows users). This will allow you add the interaction points directly in your slides. 

For attendees, add Slido to your Webex meeting. Every time you’ll reach a slide with Slido, the poll, survey, quiz or Q&A will activate in your attendees Webex window. 

Now, if you have any multimedia, I believe before you select which window to share, you need to select optimize for motion & video in the upper-right. 

Hope this helped! Happy to address any questions you may have. 

Hi,

If I try to share the presentation in Webex Meeting:

Webex → Share → share file → select local PPT file and click share

I am getting always error "There is no enought memory to start powerpoint".

If I disable Slido addin, sharing works.

 

What is the reason for that and how can I fix it?

cheers

Hi @GeorgiSchumov,

Unfortunately, this workflow is not supported.

So, If you're using our PowerPoint integration, you can't upload that PowerPoint presentation into Webex. 

 

Sorry about that. Please let me know if there’s anything else that I can help you with!

I had a presentation that a colleague set up. When the meeting started she added me as a cohost. However I was not able to set up Slido to work within Webex itself. I was wondering how meetings can be set up and Slido will always work within Webex itself. Not everyone has 2 or 3 screen to run Slido and not fully savvy to have it run on their phone at the same time either.
 

Please advise.

Hey @Greggy,

Just to be sure, you were the co-host and you wanted to use the Slido integration in Webex, is that right?

In this case, this article will show you how do it step by step, but that should definitely work for you if you were the co-host. Just click “Apps” and open Slido and it should work. What were it saying when you tried to run it, please?

Also, we have a good news, from 16th of June you will be able to use Slido in Webex even as the participants, here’s an article on it.

I hope this helps, and please do let us know what was happening when it didn’t launch for you. Either here, or send us an email to support@slido.com
