Why people are choosing Polly over Slido

Never leave Slack

With Polly, your audience can participate in the Q&As without ever having to leave Slack. No fumbling with external links or passcodes. Instead, audience members can easily submit feedback, and view and upvote submissions right from Slack. Less friction, more engagement.

Optimized to increase response rates

Access multiple ways to collect feedback pre-, during, and post-event. Cut through the noise of Slack and increase response rates by 3X  with Polly by sending surveys via DMs. Beyond events, enable an always-on Suggestion Box to collect feedback 365 days a year. 

Built for all types of collaboration

When it comes to hybrid environments, Polly goes beyond helping you drive audience engagement. On top of event support, Polly empowers your day-to-day collaboration touchpoints: daily checkins, standups, employee onboarding, pulse surveys, Q&As, and more.

Pricing plans that don’t limit you

Unlike Slido, Polly’s pricing ensures your team can have an “all you can eat” workspace experience. With a paid Polly plan, anyone in your workspace will have the ability to create, collaborate, author, and respond to polls (without the need to pay for extra seats). You can also access Q&A features without the added cost. Promote collaboration and increase productivity without the cost constraints.

Polly vs Slido: What's right for me?

There's a reason we're consistently one of the most popular apps in Slack and MS Teamsbut here's an honest assessment of which tool is better for you: 

 

 

When Polly is the perfect fit:

  • When you want to ask questions during as well as outside of meetings and events.
  • When you want to build team connections with fun games like trivia and hot takes.
  • When you need to setup recurring surveys, scheduling and reminders.
  • When you are looking for a native in-app experience within Slack, Teams or Zoom.
  • When you want to get responses from even those users who are not on these platforms (Slack, MS Teams, Zoom) i.e. through email, link embed, blog, tweet etc. You can reach anyone, everywhere!
  • When you want to survey your team in channel so that they can relate to the context.
  • When customising your anonymity and results sharing settings is important to you.
  • When you want the comfort of support via email and live chat with real humans!

  •  

When Slido might work better:

  • You want to show the results updating live on your Google Slides as the participants respond.
  • You want to add branding to your surveys/polls such as custom colors, logo etc.
  • You want to to add images to your questions.
  • You want more sophisticated data visualisation & account analytics such as shareable infographics, detailed analytics by individual rooms, and PDF exports.
  • You are looking for a one-time solution for a specific event, not regular usage. Slido offers event based pricing alongside annual plans.
  •  

The Final Word:

  • Slido excels in large event use cases, offering live broadcast and in-depth analytics of the responses.
  • Polly on the other hand let you to gather responses from users within and outside Slack/Teams/Zoom, while covering a broader set of use cases, including standups, social games, Q&A moderation, in-meeting polls, and recurring pulse surveys.
