Edit quiz questions

You can make changes to the quiz anytime by clicking the three dots next to the quiz question. 

 

Displaying quiz on a big screen

If you wish to display the quiz on a big screen, you'll need a computer showing Present mode while using a secondary device to navigate through the questions. Here's how to log in to admin on your phone.

Instead of a secondary device, you can also control your quiz directly from Present mode. This article tells you how.

 

Activate and start the quiz

Once you're all set, click the "play" icon to activate your quiz. Before jumping to the first question, make sure to wait for participants to join at www.slido.com using your #eventcode. You can track this on the right side of your screen.


Once everybody's in, start the quiz by clicking the blue button.

Run the quiz

Keep an eye on the vote counter in the top right corner. Once everybody voted, click the button to display results for the first question. This will automatically lock the voting and prevent any more votes from coming in. Afterwards, reveal the correct answer and move on to the next question. 

 🚀 If you set up the timer, results appear automatically after the time is up.
