What Slido brings to Webex Meetings

Slido in Webex provides you with a powerful package of interaction features:

Live polls
Choose from 6 types of polls to collect data and insights from your audience in real-time. Your participants can vote in polls or share their verbal feedback right within their Webex window.

Audience Q&A
Give everyone a safe space to ask questions and run more inclusive Q&A sessions. Your audience will be able to post and upvote questions using the Q&A panel.

Create a full quiz experience for your audience with a leaderboard, scores, and timer. Enjoy some social time with a trivia quiz or test your participants’ knowledge in an interactive way.

What can you do with Slido for Webex?

If you’re running meetings, trainings, or events on Webex, Slido for Webex will make your life easier. You’ll be able to:

Interact with your participants at scale
It doesn’t matter if you have 10, 100, or 1,000 people on the Webex Meetings call. Run a poll and ask everyone what they think or how they feel.

Collect the best ideas from your team
Give everyone a chance to share their ideas, even the less vocal ones. An open text poll will allow you to collect ideas from everyone equally – just ask them to type their ideas into Slido.

Break the ice
Need a little activity to loosen people up at the start of your meeting? Kick off a friendly discussion by running a short “would you rather” poll question or fire up a nice word cloud.

Make more democratic decisions
Democratize your meetings. A multiple choice poll or a ranking poll will allow you to give everyone on your team a chance to express their opinion or preference.

Run more open Q&A sessions
Give your team members and trainees a safe space to ask questions. Tell them to post their questions or concerns into Slido and run more organized and transparent Q&A sessions.
