Slido Update December 1st - Missing features

While using Slido in WebEx I get the pop up message “You’re using an outdated view of Slido. We’ll enable the new version for you on Dec 1, 2022.”

 

Will this version be finalized before I get forced off from the old Slido view?

I noticed not all features work there, the one I'm mainly concerned about are Agendas. Without Agendas all the questions are cluttered in a random order, which makes it hard to find the right question at the right time. 

 

Another thing that does not work are Surveys. Locking + showing the answers, doesn't actually show participants the correct answer.

 

These are both features that are a MUST in my opinion and I hope they will get addressed before the December update.

Hi there, thanks for the question!

I understand how grouping polls by date and time helps your run an efficient meeting. For bigger events, when the list of polls gets longer than usual, it must be helpful. We’ll have a look at this with our team and discuss how this could be supported but I can confirm that this won’t be available by December of this year. I apologise for the trouble.

Also, I tested the survey use case you described on both our website (Slido Admin) but also in the new and old sidebars in Webex. I wasn’t able to make it work anywhere.

Can you remember when this worked for you last time? I’d love to understand if this is a feature request or something’s not working right on our end.

Thanks!

It works only without locking the answers (atleast in the old version). Well the questions in the Survey have the options of locking / showing the answers, so Im slightly confused on why it shouldnt work. 

 

But I dont really understand the Update, I dont really see any new features, just a Visual update. Which dont get me wrong looks great, but I just dont see the value of updating to a Version with less functions.

Thanks for the feedback.

It’s a good point. I let my colleague who’s a product manager know about your feedback on locking and showing the results in a survey. If there’s anything new, I’m happy to share an update here in this post.

As we continue working on the new sidebar, we’ll need to address more things over time. I’ll be sure to keep the time sections in mind. It’s already added to our backlog for consideration.

If you can think of anything else, please let me know at mb@slido.com or post here in this thread.
