As an administrator, you can now install Slido for Windows (PowerPoint Add-in) using our MSI file. This is great for big organizations with many Slido users, as you can now do a bulk installation for all of them!
Also, with available command line parameters, you can turn off update notifications for the end users or execute a silent installation. This gives IT admins much more control over the installation experience of Slido PowerPoint add-in.
This new Word cloud view in your admin shows the results in both a Word Cloud and a list of words grouped together, and you can see the exact same Word Cloud in your admin as your participants see on their devices or the Present view.
By grouping the same responses together, it is now much easier to delete unwanted words from your Present view in case you need to.
A fun little update to give your winners something special in this remote world - your winner is now celebrated with a sprinkle of confetti in both Slido Present mode and their Slido participant view!
This experimental feature is great for larger meetings or events as it suggests similar questions that are already submitted in the Q&A. As your participants type, As your participants type, they will see the suggestions which will prevent receiving multiple questions asking the same thing. And, it also promotes upvoting questions!
If you’d like to try this BETA feature for your next event, go to your Event settings > Slido Labs BETA > Detect similar questions. Don’t forget to let us know what you think!

Good news for those running events with collaborators. The same guest can now be added to one event of each user in your account. Previously, it was just one event in the whole account.
If you want to have a centralized Slido license for all your employees’ accounts, you can restrict sign-ups for your company domain. Users under a restricted domain will not be able to create their own accounts or be invited to accounts outside of the main one, excluding Guest access. Available for Enterprise and Institution licenses with at least 10 additional users.
This may have happened to you during your last meeting: The session was running, participants kept asking one question after another in Q&A and then you suddenly needed to share some important information with your whole audience. We are sure you somehow managed to solve that. Anyway, now it’s easier than ever before, you can use the moderator's announcements!
This feature allows you to push a notification at the top of the Participant mode with a message for everyone to see. We also support links as part of announcements, so feel free to use this feature to share various URLs with your audience. Available for Teacher/Professional and above plans.
If you are an account administrator, there is a new way to invite your team easily - by using a shareable link. There is some customization available based on your preference, e.g. you can specify the email domains that are allowed to use the link. This feature is available for Corporate+ and Department+ plans.
