Use Single sign-on to control who can join your event

With an annual Enterprise license or the EDU Institution license, you are able to use SSO (single sign-on) authentication in order to make sure that only people from your company or specific department can join your internal meetings via Slido.


Slido supports the following authentication methods:

  • Google SSO - If you are using Google Suite (previously known as Google for Work) at your company, the participants can join your Slido meetings using their Google login credentials.
     
  • SAML based SSO - You can easily set up SAML SSO for your participants using one of the following Identity providers: Okta, OneLogin, Microsoft Azure or Auth0. If you use any other IdP, you can try integrating it with Slido using our Service Provider Metadata.

 

Set up Google SSO

To set up Google SSO for participants to access your events: 

  1. Open your Organization settings
  2. Select Event Privacy


Once in the Organization settings, do the following:

  1. Change your privacy method to "Protected"
  2. From the authentication method drop-down menu, select Google SSO
  3. Enter your company domain


This is how your participants will see it:


Set up SAML based SSO

💡 Your participants can choose whether they want to post questions using their names or anonymously.


🚀 Pro tip: Lock settings

If you're using SAML based SSO, you can also lock this setting. This means that Users from your Organization will not be able to turn off SSO protection within individual events. Admins and Owner will still be able to do so.


🚀 Pro tip: Apply SAML SSO to all events

By default, changing your Event Privacy to SAML based SSO impacts only your future events which haven't yet been created. If you also wish to apply this setting on your already existing events, simply click "Apply to all events". 


Here are some frequently asked questions we get regarding SSO:

  • Can the participants still ask questions anonymously when there is SSO set up for the event?
    Yes! This helps keeping your data Private without any compromise on the level of the audience engagement.
  • We usually use Slido at the internal meetings, but there will be participants from outside of our company at the upcoming event. Will be they able to engage via Slido?
    Sure! You can disable the SSO login for the specific event in Privacy settings.
