Schedule a Webex Webinar
- Log in to your Webex platform (e.g. company.webex.com) and click ‘Schedule a webinar’:
- Then, fill out the information about your webinar and click ‘Schedule’ once finished.
Set up and run Slido during your webinar
Alternatively, you can set everything up on the day of the event directly in Webex:
- Open the Webex desktop app and continue to ‘Apps’.
- Click Slido
- Select your existing event or create a new one
Once you’re in, create your polls or turn on moderation of questions if preferred. Creating and managing polls and Q&A during your webinar is similar to how it’s done in Webex Meetings. The visual guide below will walk you through it:
Please note that the ‘Apps’ button and Slido are not available in webinar practice session. It will appear once you’re live.
Your participants will be able to interact with Slido directly in the sidebar once you open it via Apps.
Have a collaborator help you managing polls and Q&A
To help you activate polls and moderate submitted questions, you can add a collaborator to Slido. Collaborators need to have a panelist role in Webex Webinars to be able to see Apps.
As the Webex webinar host, you should be the first one to open Slido via Apps > Slido during the webinar. Collaborators also need to open Slido via Apps > Slido to be able to help with polls and Q&A.
