Hey,I added a description to my poll and it works insofar as that the users see the description on their devices but it is not displayed on the powerpoint-slide. How do I get it to be displayed on the slide as well? Seems like a simple problem but I cannot find a button to change it and it is driving me crazy. Thanks in advanceMaren
When I set up a word cloud in Slido for PowerPoint, it creates a slide with a small QR code. There’s seems to be no way to enlarge it enough so people way in the back can see it.Is there any way to make it larger or even print it out (and waste paper)?Yes, I know they can go online, use the code, etc.
Hello,I try to use Slido with Powerpoint.I created a Survey and I’m wondering if there is a possibility that the survey questions are displayed on screen after I open the slide.The only thing I’m able to show is the title iof the survey.Or do I have to show the slide with the survey questions and run Slido from outside Powerpoint (either with Slido Switch or from the Slido admin) ?RegardsPascal
Hi all,I experience problem after update is done on Slido add-in. It asked me to make an update while I was using PowerPoint and since then it doesn’t show up as add-in icon on Home tab.I tried with reinstalling, repairing, also with SlidoforAdmin but it doesn’t come up and even making changes in registry editor but still nothing. Only thing that I notice is when parameters in registry editor changes, add-in transferes from inactive to active add-ins and becomes active in list of add-ins in PowerPoint. Following, check box is checked when I try to enable Slido but unfortunately there is no luck.Is there any solution that I can try to manage it or I just have to wait for new Slido update?Thank you in advance
Dear community, I am facing compatibility issues working with empower addin.If both addins are installed, Powerpoint is hanging in Presenter mode. You can always reproduce it, tested with Office 2019 and Office 365, empower ver 8.7 and latest Slido, Steps to reproduce:create new presentation add some slido artifact (e.g. Question, Join Information) save presentation start presentation in presenter mode → Powerpoint is crashing (stopping working and restarting) after 20 sek. Starting in presenter mode is not possible.Is the issue with empower known?Is there a fix or workaround for working with empower?empower is rolled out corporate wide and seems the co-existing of both addins is not possible at this moment. For any ideas, support and question you can contact me!
Hello, I am trying to use Slido integrated with Powerpoint to run a live quiz. There are 12 possible answers to each question, but when I run the presentation only the first 9 are displayed. If the correct answer is number 10, 11, or 12 this is not displayed as it is “off screen” The web interface shows all 12 options and then the answer correctly. Is there any easy solution or workaround?Thanks!
HiI created an event using a branded PowerPoint deck for Meeting 1. I want to now create a new event for Meeting 2 and so the PowerPoint for Meeting 1 as “Meeting 2” with the intention of updating most slides and linking it to Event 2. But it keeps telling me that the PPT was created with a different account., It wasn’t!How on earth do I get the PPT for Meeting 2 to recognise Event 2. I’ve tried copy and paste to a blank PPT document but it does not take the branding with it. :(Is there no easy way to delink the event from a “Saved As” PPX document? If not, this is a reason for reconsidering my use of Slido.
I installed “Slido for Windows 0.17.1.1417.2102171556.msi” for Office 365 Pro Plus, and the Slido green button does appear in the Home bar. When I installed the same Slido version for Office 365 Enterprise, the Slido green button does not appear in the Home bar. Got the error message below:Location: mscoree.dllLoad Behavior: Not loaded. A runtime error occurred during the loading of the COM Add-in. Please advise on how to fix the issue above. Thanks!
I’ve integrated Slido with Powerpoint and set up some polls, including word clouds, ratings and open text. However, when I start the presentation, I reach the Slido poll and while the sidebar shows the results, the corresponding slide simply has “Start the Presenting to Display the Poll Results on this Slide”, and does not display any of the answers.I’ve tried starting the presentation with Slido, with f5 and with Powerpoint’s “Start from Beginning” button and none of them have shown the results on the slide.What am I missing?
I have PPT slides that have embedded live polls and Q&A windows. I have tested this presentation before, and everything worked. Currently, when I run the slides -- using the “Present with Slido” button -- the polls do not show in the presentation. It just shows the placeholder slide.For this same PPT file, if I add a new poll now, then it shows as expected during the presentation. But the saved poll slides still do not work.I have checked that I am connected to the correct event. (I have two different ones, for two different classes that I am teaching,) I’ve tried restarting PPT and restarting the (Windows) laptop. No change.Any ideas?
Hello,I’ve been trying to use Slido for Powerpoint on a corporate network and when the add-in is activated, it either crash at launch or I’m receiving an error message.Is it a recurring issue?We already tried to change the User Account Control settings but it didn’t change anything.Best regards,Ludovic
Hi there, so I have a presentation assignment and I put Slido in my PowerPoint file. If I saved that PPT file on a flashdisk, plug it in on my school computer on the presentation day, would it still functioning like it is on my personal computer?
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.
