Are there any limitations in Slido for PowerPoint?

Integration with PowerPoint is currently in beta version, which means it's still in the development and the functionality might be limited. Currently, this feature is available for EDU plans only.

❗️When sharing screen online on Zoom or Microsoft Teams, always select desktop/screen and NOT a PowerPoint window❗️

In this article:



Here's a list of limitations to keep in mind when using Slido for PowerPoint:

  • Screen sharing - When using Zoom or other video conferencing service, always share your entire desktop with the audience. Window or application sharing is not currently supported so live results or questions would not be visible to your participants.
  • Presenter view in PowerPoint - The navigation buttons in Presenter mode are not supported when displaying poll results. Use your keyboard or a clicker to advance the slides and poll questions.
  • Single Sign On authentication - SSO is currently not fully supported. It works only if Slido for PowerPoint redirects you to a new tab in your browser which depends on your system settings.
  • PowerPoint Online and Viewer - The online and viewer version of PowerPoint are not currently supported.
  • Multiple presentations - Connecting a Slido session or multiple sessions across different slide decks might not always function properly.
  • Switching sessions - Switching to a different session within PowerPoint might require a restart of the app
