Slido integration
Increase participant engagement (and track analytics in real time) by integrating Slido with Breakroom's conferencing system.

Slido integration overview

Slido is a third-party application that allows you to solicit audience questions, encourage participant collaboration, and conduct user polls. If you like, you can use a Slido event in place of Breakroom's built-in question management system.
