Run a survey via Slido

Surveys allow you to ask multiple poll questions at the same time. With surveys, you can group several polls, even of a different type, and let your participants respond to them at once. It's also a great way to ask for feedback. 

💡 Surveys are available in our Pro, Premium, Corporate, Enterprise, Teacher, Department and Institution plans. To create a quiz, take a look at our Run a quiz via Slido article.

Create a survey

To create a feedback survey, multiple-items rating or multiple choice poll with "other" option: 

  1. Go to Polls
  2. Click Create poll and select Survey
  3. Fill in the details

⭐ At the moment, it isn't possible to set up a mandatory survey question.

 

Edit and re-order poll questions in a Survey

Click the three vertical dots next to the Survey to edit its content or simply drag and drop your poll questions in the survey to change their order.

🚀 Changes appear immediately in all modes even if the survey is activated


Activate a Survey

To activate your survey, click the play icon next to it. Once you do that, the survey will show all questions on the participant devices. 

💡 Results don't show on participants' devices, only on Present mode.

 

Display Survey results

You can display the results for only one poll question at a time on the Present mode. Just click the arrow next to the poll question when you're ready to show the results. 

 

This is how the results look like on Present mode: 

🚀 You can share the event link to your event once your presentation or meeting is over to collect feedback. 


Share a Survey using permanent link

If needed, you can share your survey with the audience using a direct link. This can especially be useful if you're aiming to collect feedback once your event or meeting is over.

  1. Click the vertical dots next to the survey and select Share
  2. Simply send the Direct link via email or share it on social media


Merge your polls into a survey

If you've created individual polls but would actually like to have them grouped under one survey instead, you can merge them with only a couple of simple clicks.

All the data you already gathered in your individual polls will also carry over to the merged survey.

  1. Select the polls you wish to merge
  2. Click the "Merge into survey" button
  3. Confirm by hitting "Merge"

🚀 If needed, you can also split your survey into individual polls
