Integrate Slido with Cisco Webex Meetings

Adding Slido in Cisco Webex Meeting or Cisco Webex Event allows your audience to submit questions, share ideas, or vote in polls directly in the Cisco Webex desktop app. You can now easily involve everyone in the conversation by adding Slido Participant mode as multimedia. 

💡 Adding multimedia is only possible for hosts with Webex native app for Windows or Mac. The web version doesn't have this option.

To add Slido into the Cisco Webex Meetings or Cisco Webex Events, you need to copy your Slido event link first. You can find it under the "Share" button in your event Admin mode.

If you haven't created an event first, here's a quick tutorial with all the steps: 

  1. Log in to your Slido account and click "Schedule event"
  2. Add a title of your event, set your dates, and customize your event code
  3. Hit Save
  4. Navigate to the "Share" button in the upper right corner and click "Share link with participants"

 

Add Slido to your Cisco Webex Meeting

Once you start your Webex meeting as a host:

  1. In the top menu bar, go to Share and select Share Multimedia
  2. Insert your Slido event link

Slido Participant mode will appear in the right sidebar. Once your participants join the call, they will be able to interact with Slido and ask questions or vote in polls and quizzes directly from their Cisco Webex screen.

As a host with a macOS device, you can test Slido directly on your meeting screen. If you have a Windows computer, join the call as a participant to try it yourself.
