Organizers can use Slido to improve interaction with their attendees through the Q&A, polling, and survey functionalities.
What are the capabilities of the Slido integration?
Slido can be added to the side panel across different event areas such as stages, sessions, expo booths, reception etc. The integration will allow to display any Slido polls, Q&As, and surveys to event attendees. Different Slido URLs can be linked across the event in different sections.
Tip: You can also create polls directly on Hopin.
How do I set up the Slido integration?
- Create your Slido event and set up polls or Q&A sessions on your Slido account.
- Login to your Hopin account, navigate to the Integrations tab of your organization, find Slido, click on it and then click Install application.
- Copy the 'Event link' from the Slido that you'd like to use.
- Navigate to the specific stage or session in your event dashboard that you'd like to add Slido to.
- Paste that event link into the 'Slido URL' field in your stage or session, and hit the Save button at the bottom of the page.
- You can also rename the Slido tab to anything you wish. For example, you can rename it to AMA (Ask me anything) or anything relating to the event.
- Use the Preview button at the top right of your event dashboard to navigate to the event. Find the stage or session that you added Slido to, and you'll see a Slido tab in the right-hand panel.
Note: When an attendee within your Hopin event answers a poll question, a "participant" is used within Slido. To better understand participant limits in Slido please click here.
How do I remove the Slido integration?
You can either remove the Slido URL from the stage or session (make sure you hit Save on that stage or session), or you can disable the Slido integration altogether from the Integrations page.
