To make your Slido experience even smoother, we’ve been working on some amazing new features and updates in the last few months. Here’s a rundown of the key updates to help you improve your meetings and events. Let’s take a quick look.

What’s new

Reply to questions directly from your Admin

To make your meetings and Q&As even more productive, we’ve introduced Admin Replies that allow you to respond to any unanswered questions. You can also leave a private comment to duplicate or irrelevant questions.

Quick Tip: After each meeting, you can export the comments and share them via email or the internal communications app that you use in your company.

Get inspired by our new Poll templates

Asking the right questions can be tough. To help you run an icebreaker, get feedback on strategy or find out people’s learning expectations during training, we added a series of poll templates to Admin for inspiration.

You can choose from different categories according to the type and purpose of your meeting. 

Easier navigation through Admin

We understand that time is precious and as more tools and settings are added to Slido, we need to achieve a faster, more intuitive user experience. To help you find your way through your account quickly, the new header in Admin includes three simple tabs:

We also made it easier for you to manage events. You can now switch between the Participant, Present and Admin views in the top right corner, including detailed instructions to display Slido or join an event.

Collect questions and ideas without leaving Slack

Crowdsource questions, collect ideas or run “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) sessions instantly without having to leave the communications channel you’re already using.

You will get daily notifications via direct messages about questions and ideas collected that day, whether you are Admin or participant.

Here’s a short video to show you how it works:

Emojis available in questions and ideas

Sometimes, it’s easier to express feelings and emotions via images. Your participants can now use emojis within their submitted questions and ideas.

  • Download the results in separate sheets per room in a multiple-room setup
  • Analyze Poll results per user in a separate sheet with a simple pivot table view
  • View percentage splits for Multiple choice and average scores for Rating polls in Poll results exports
