Simple yet very entertaining and user-friendly tool!

Reviewed 4 months ago
Pros

I recommend this for creating polls and surveys for both, adults and children. The questions and answers (and points and statistics) are very nicely and neatly displayed and everyone can participate without having to create an account.

Cons

There is nothing to complain about, this tool works well and can be used for various occasions and audiences.

Slido is a lightweight tool to make your presentations more interactive with Q&A and polls

Reviewed a year ago

I use Slido as a sidekick to my presentation software such as Google Slides. It's easy to add the Slido plugin to Slides, and share the QR code with the participants of my event. Audiences love being engaged during a workshop or training session, so Slido does exactly that, it provides and opportunity for them to interact with the content and the presenter by asking questions, participating in polls or sharing their ideas. Typical use cases for Slido in my work: 1. Workshop or training session 2. Pitch session 3. Expert speech session/talk

Pros

Slido is a lightweight support tool to make your presentations more interactive with Q&A, polls and ideation. It works with any presentation software you use, such as Google Slides, MS PowerPoint or OSx Keynote. You are able to create a session in Slide securely and share the QR code/link with the participants. In the free version of Slido, your participants can add challenges, questions and ideas before or during the session. They are also able to participate in a limited number of polls.

Cons

Free version is limited. Presenter-facing interface could improve on UX. New feature roll-out could be more frequent and regular.

Love the Changes made!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Engaging my audience is always a challenge. Slido allows me to get participation without asking them to standup and speakout in a crowd. They become considerably more interested with where I am going with my discussions.

Pros

I started using slido 2 years ago. I do 3-4 conference talks each year. I have also tried many ways to better engage my audience and bring them into the talk. At that time I was required to use my smartphone to activate each poll of which I use 3 during the class. A couple of weeks ago I was setting it up to use again and this time I discovered the power point integration. When I set it u, which was pretty easy, I was able to use the ppt slides and when I got to a slide for the poll, it pops up automatically and immediately activates the desired poll. And this conference was virtual so I was able to use it sharing my screen on Zoom and people across the country participated in the 3 polls I had.

Cons

Setting it up takes some time but I think it works pretty well.

A fan

Reviewed 2 years ago

The use of Slido greatly improves my E-Learning engagements (mostly financial training in AsiaPacific).

Pros

* Powerpoint integration * Seemless access with phone * Slick functionality and presentation I use it for all my financial training engagements. And now my wife does the same as a Professor of Public Health.

Cons

Not much. A small thing perhaps. If I use the Powerpoint integration and I must exit presentation mode to refer to another slide, when I re-enter presentation mode, it brings me automatically to the top of the presentation, not the slide selected. I think I've found a workaround.

Vendor response

Hi Blaise, Thank you so much for the positive review. It's great to hear how Slido helped you with engagement during your trainings (and your wife too :).

State-of-the-art Engagement Tool

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, Slido is an excellent tool that can be used not only in teaching, but also in conference presentations to engage the audience. I've recently used Slido in an education conference, and the ability to integrate Slido into Google Slides was very effective. My audience was not distracted by shifting between different tabs to manage my presentation, and the session was entirely smooth.

Pros

As a higher education institute instructor, Slido is extremely handy in engaging my students, and receiving their responses instantly, which is very efficient in terms of classroom time management. Also, Slido is visually appealing to them, and they like to see their classmates' answers as well on screen.

Cons

Thus far, I have not encountered any problems using Slido.

The most convenient way to engage audiences

Reviewed 7 months ago

Slido has made it totally anxiety free for my educational platforms; it allows me set meetings and events, engage attendees and participants, control their interactions, and more importantly, get instant feedback and measure the outcomes of my meetings via polls, surveys, Q&A sessions and many other features. Without Slido, I might not be able to take my webinars and conferences to another level.

Pros

Slido's user-friendly dashboard allows users to engage attendees in meetings using a bunch of powerful tools, which range from stunning themes and stand-alone settings to polling and voting in Q&A sessions. Slido users can set events in few clicks with much control on the number of participants, moderation settings, and data export. It allows users to protect the privacy of particpants with passwords, or single signing codes as security measures, not found in other alternatives. Slido makes easy for other companies with its integrations to many platforms, mainly Google and Youtube.

Cons

Its amazing features are only available on paid plans, and that's a limitation for Slido. However, I don't think it is expensive to get.

Best solution to make your meeting Interactive

Reviewed 3 years ago

Slido was a favorite tool in my all meetings, I use this to make meetings more fun and interactive, though many applications have inbuilt Q&A feature, I would go with Slido because it's easy to use and especially for the upvoting feature in the Q&A. Polling feature is also one of the recently used features and it's really easy to use.

Pros

I like most the features they introduced, especially the Q&A and polling feature which makes all the meetings so interactive, and upvoting to the questions is the lacking feature in the competitor's platform. The recent feature which analyse the keyword and displaying the word wrap is again useful and the interesting fact is the most of the tools can use it free to an extend.

Cons

If the trial version is more then it would be easy to try out all the features and would help to understand the potential and buy the subscription. Also, the subscription price is a bit high when comes to a single user, if it is paid as you use, it would be great. Initially, when I used the product it was a bit hard to understand how to use the platform, it would be better an animated tutorial when sign-up happens.

We needed help building more interaction in our Virtual Classroom....and Slido was the answer

Reviewed a year ago

Slido has made our virtual classroom more interactive. The ease of use, combined with the reliability of the product has made it an important part of how we deliver our learning programs.

Pros

We've been using Slido to increase interaction in our virtual classroom since the start of the pandemic. We were used to conducting quick pulse checks with our learners and Slido has made this easy. We love the word cloud feature to gather group sentiment around different topics. The tool is very easy for all of our learners to use and offers multiple access points - via web url or QR code. I've never had issues with the tool - very reliable.

Cons

It took at little while to determine the best way to share our Slide screens in presentations but I would chalk that up to user error, not a fault of the product.

No better way to get attendees to become participants

Reviewed 4 years ago

I've always had an excellent experience with Slido and I've been using is as a speaker, session participant and event organiser for 4-5 years. The system is solid and really flexible.

Pros

I like how simple Slido is to use (one URL + one hashtag, or scan a QR code > instantly usable on any browser). I also like how many options it has (quite a few but not overwhelming) and the way it can help instantly visualise data. It can be a simple tool to receive questions but can also facilitate instant data analysis.

Cons

I think Slido gets it just right when it comes to usability. I would like to see some updates on the look and feel, and I think one or two more visualisation options would be welcome.

Best tool for live and online events

Reviewed 3 years ago

I use Slido ever since I saw it at a conference. User experience is great both for the presenter and the audience. Numerous integrations with Powerpoint, Google Slides, Zoom help make presentations seamlessly interactive. I also love the fact it supports my mother language.

Pros

Slido events are easy to set up and even easier to use. Of all the tools I used at live and online events, Slido brings the highest interaction rates.

Cons

I wish I could mark questions in a survey as required. This is not an option just yet. It would be useful for me.

Hi Matej, Thank you for your review, we really appreciate that you're happy with Slido and will work hard to keep it that way! I have sent your idea of marking survey questions as required to our product team. - Filipa

Simple, yet super effective

Reviewed 3 years ago

Virtual Facilitation has increased dramatically since the pandemic, and being able to engage with our Managers through a screen, compared to F2F, was always going to be a challenge. Now with the tools from Slido, this has become so much easier for me as a facilitator, and fun for the learners, as it gives the conversation more richness in discussion, through using what they Managers have answered, as they pop up on the screen.

Pros

I came across Slido following a post I saw on LinkedIn, advertising that you can include Slido software directly into your PowerPoint. I checked it out, and within 24 hours I had changed the interaction in my slides to include quizzes, polls, and word clouds etc, which was amazing! The software is as it says, simple and easy to use. Downloading the software was quick and easy, and within minutes I was logged in and setting up my slides with Slido interactions. Additional to this is the admin system, which allows you to pull the stats and data from the quizzes etc. Just seen the further update this week, that Slido is now a feature within MS Teams, this is a win win for me, as we use Teams in our organisation - life just got better!

Cons

Not yet, however I have yet to start pulling the answers from the past 2 weeks sessions, which I'm going to use to pull together some data for a presentation for my Directors on the engagement in our Virtual Sessions. So I hope its as easy as putting the sessions together.

Pros

Easy to use on virtual advisory boards to gain qualitative feedback on key questions. Simple to access for participants via QR code or URL. Instant feedback on the number of respondents to guarantee a response from all attending

A must-have PowerPoint add-on

Reviewed 3 years ago

My overall experience with Slido is good. It works perfectly fine in the PowerPoint itself and has great features I appreciate a lot, such as live pools and, of course, the quizzes. As of now I didn't have any problems while using this software as it works very reliably. I may also mention the Slido Academy, which is a platform that offers loads of video tutorials for getting started with Slido and exploring its many resources. This is such a great add-on!

Pros

What I like the most about Slido is how I can engage with my audience by easily creating live polls and quizzes directly on a PowerPoint presentation and getting instant feedback... all this on real-time! Slido is both fun, pedagogic, easy to use and has incredible features I appreciate a lot. I firstly found Slido while watching a presentation of a colleague and since then I've been using it for many quizzes and Q&As, as it is very easy to access by the participants.

Cons

If I had to point any less good characteristic, I would say that what I like the least about this software is the not so user-friendly layout. I would like to see more of a modern design and I think there is room for improvement there. Other than that, I had not encounter any issues or concerns whatsoever. I'm also aware that the support team is very friendly and responsive, which is great!

Slido creates movement and motivation

Reviewed 3 years ago

Simply put: valuable and worthwhile using during sessions with (large or small) groups. p.s. I saw it used during a large (500 ppl) conference, and it was great.

Pros

Slido has been so easy to apply in group sessions. I apply a lot of software tools that are 'participant-facing' and Slido works best so far in my opinion. The present-button creates a lot of value. Various types of questions work well too. Slido just seem to understand what we need.

Cons

When I'm presenting, I'd love to see how many have logged in in real-time in the present-view. I might have missed that this is possible, but I didn't find it right away.

A really great engagement tool for events to keep the attendees engaged using tools that they already have, their smart devices

Pros

The range of options available to create engagement opportunities with attendees, particularly, the quiz and the live poll functions allow you to judge the mood in the room without needing to pause the main presentation.

Cons

Reviewed 4 years ago

It has been good. It allows our large group get answers to question we need immediately.

Pros

The feature I like most about this software is that once you give the code out to your audience, they input it in, and have access to the questions you want answers to anonymously.

Cons

What I least like about this software is that although most people have cell phones, there was one person who forgot their cellphone that day. However, that individual would not have changed the decision we ultimately made. The percentage of people were in favour of a decsision and one person would not have swekwed it - majority rule!

Pros

Very useful to perform some quizzes, remotely, with the team. You are able to show the scoreboard at the end of each question, for example, and the percentage of answers in each question. With the trial version, you can have a large number of players.

Cons

As I was using the trial version, I couldn't try some features, like export the results. Besides that, maybe it could be a bit easier to use, at least when starting, for the first time.

Excellent tool to engage audience

Reviewed 3 years ago

Simple, intuitive, and exactly what I needed to engage my students

Pros

I just use the free version, but it gave me all the tools I needed to engage the audience in a set of briefings I give frequently. With the free version you are limited to only 3 polls, but that is enough for my use. I have looked at upgrading, and the price is reasonable if you wish to e corporate more polls and other paid features into your briefing

Cons

There is a beta for powerpoint integration, but I couldn't get it to work. But by simply copying the QR code they provided into my presentation, the audience didn't miss out on anything integrated into the presentation

Vendor response

Hi Mark. Thank you for your positive review. It's great to hear that Slido helps you with audience engagement and intraction. I'm sorry to hear that you had troubles with our PowerPoint integration. I'd be happy to investigate this further and see what might've happened. As the integration is only in Beta, we're constantly looking for ways how to improve it. If you have a spare moment, could you please reach out to me at experience@slido.com so we can have a look? Thank you. Adam

More affordable price point

Reviewed 4 years ago

Amazing! I was introduced to this software by a colleague in a partnering youth organization and immediately looked into adding the functionality to our organization.

Pros

Slido is extremely easy to use - the push and pull functionality provides immediate opportunity to interact with members and receive immediate feedback on timely topics . The presentation mode feature is also easy to work with and is a great addition to our meetings.

Cons

The free subscriber is great but I would a little more access to additional functions and tools but the first price point of $600 annual is simply too steep for a small non-profit providing service to youth members and their families.
