1. Share your screen

You can manage polls, quizzes, and Q&A from a handy control panel in the lower part of your screen.

Do you also have slides (or any other content) that you plan on sharing with your team during your Zoom meeting?

No problem. Just have your slide deck opened in full screen in a separate window, and switch between it and Slido using either Alt+Tab or Swipe on Mac like this:

2. Integrate Slido with Google Slides or PowerPoint

Great news – you can also integrate Slido directly into your Google Slides or PowerPoint slide deck!

Our integrations allow you to create a poll or a quiz as you work on your slides and insert it directly into your presentation flow as a separate slide.

Once you’re at a Zoom meeting, just share your screen with your presentation and run live polls, quizzes, and Q&A seamlessly as you present, without having to switch between screens or leave your slide deck.

Smooth, isn’t it?
