How to present with Slido

To start presenting your slideshow, remember to click the Present with Slido button in the sidebar.

⭐ If you're using our Chrome extension, you can use the regular Present button.

Your polls will be automatically activated once you get to the right slide and your audience will be able to vote in real-time. You can choose how to display your poll results:

  • Show immediately: The poll results are displayed as soon as you get to your slide with the poll.
  • Show on click: The poll itself is displayed automatically when you get to your slide with the poll. Advancing one more click will display the poll results (see the GIF below).
  • Do not show: The poll itself is displayed automatically when you get to your slide with the poll. Advancing one more click will take you to the next slide in your presentation without showing the poll results.

Ask your audience to join

Ask your audience to join using the instructions on the slide. Ask them to scan the QR code or send them to to enter the Slido code manually.

Access settings

If you need to access your event settings to adjust Slido features or set up branding and customization for your event, simply click the Gear icon in your sidebar and open Settings. The same works for Exports, if you wish to download your data after the event.

Slido admin will then open in a new tab.
