How do I test Slido before my event?

Before your conference or a meeting starts, we recommend sending a few testing questions to Slido. During your rehearsal, you can display the questions or poll results live on the screen to check if the experience is fast and everything runs smoothly.

You'll need 2 devices to test Slido:

  • A smartphone to send questions and activate polls in the Admin view
  • A computer to display Slido on the screen


⭐ First - display Slido on the screen

Open the Slido Present view in your browser and connect your computer to the projector. If there is a technician on site, ask them to display Slido on the main screen in the venue or a conference room.


⭐ Second - send testing questions to Slido

Once you can see Slido on the main screen, use your smartphone to enter your event and send in some testing questions to make sure they appear in real time and the experience is fast. We recommend turning off the moderation during the testing so questions appear automatically on the screen.

Quick tip: You can send an event permanent link to your colleagues so they can access it and submit a couple of testing questions during your rehearsal


⭐ Then - send poll votes

Log into the Admin on your smartphone and activate a poll by clicking the gray play button. Cast a vote to see the results update in real time and make sure everything runs smoothly.    


⭐ Finally - delete testing questions and reset poll results

Once you finish testing, simply delete all submitted testing questions and reset poll results to make sure they don't appear in your Analytics page.
