How to integrate Slido with Microsoft Teams

We have a policy with 2 users that have all apps enabled.

Our Global Policy does not have Slido enabled.

I can add the slido app in my Teams-Meetings but the users who are on the Global policy never see the app appear in the meeting. Is there a setting in Teams-Admin Center I am missin that needs to be enabled for all other users to see Slido?


Trying the Teams integration with a slido event where SAML SSO is configured.

Two issues:

  • people are suggested to log in their email used for Teams or even automatically logged in
  • the SSO option is not available to login

So my question: is SAML SSO in the Slido Teams app ?



Hi team,


I would like to ask about Live Event in Microsoft teams. Is Slido support Live event?


Thank you.

Hello Slido Community,

i have a problem, if I try to login into slido(Webex-Licensed) in MS Teams after added to the meeting, the slido tab is blank. 

Also if try it in a ongoing meeting it is blank, but the participant can see the app in the side panel. The Host view is blank.


Hi @spierce 

Just to double-check, did the participants meet the following criteria?

  • Using Desktop client of the app
  • Logged in with their company accounts

If so, I believe there might some IT setting on your end that’s blocking them from seeing the App and perhaps they need some additional whitelisting. 

Hi @EPO 

Sorry to hear about this issue.

We had a bug with SSO a while ago which might’ve caused this to happen.

If the issue still persists, can you please contact our support team at for further assistance? 

Hi @Art Point 

At the moment, we don’t support Live events and there’s no ETA for this either. 

Hi @Inbal 

At the moment, we don’t support the Webex login method for our Microsoft Teams integration. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Is there any future plans? It is still not working in MS Teams. Our users are not amused.

Hello @Inbal,

Unfortunately, the Webex login method still doesn’t work in Microsoft Teams. The rough timeline for fixing this is either the end of this calendar year or the beginning of the next one. 

I apologize for the inconvenience caused, I understand that this is really frustrating. 

Can we remove the automated message that shows up in the Teams meeting chat when you add a Slido?


When I add Slido to a Teams Outlook meeting, a new chat message shows up in Teams:


Hi there! You have added Slido as a tab to your meeting. To continue, open your Meeting settings or use Slido directly during your meeting. Check out this quick video or our guide for more information.”


Everyone sees this. For a meeting that is a large number of participants (100s+ people) and 2-3 weeks in advance, I do not want them to receive this notification.

Hi @kathym,

This behavior is on the side of Teams rather than on the side of Slido.

The message can be turned off when adding Slido using the “Do not post about this tab” option. Can you please uncheck this option when adding Slido? 

I hope this helps! 


Hi Slido,

My attendees cannot see the poll results in Teams.  I either have to share my screen and show the results in Slido or just tell everyone the results.  It’s not ideal.  I have clicked the toggle to Hide/Show results, but they still don’t see them.  Any thoughts?

HI Team, 

Is there anything in place for assistance with sight impairment ?

Hi @Ali Taylor,

VoiceOver, available on Mac computers, works on our standalone web version and also on the MS Teams integration. If you are using the Teams integration on a Windows computer, you could try JAWS

For more information on accessibility, take a look at this article.

Hope this helps 🙂 Let me know if you have any further questions.
