Understanding how Connections work is essential for maximizing engagement in your Sidekick presentations. Interactive elements helps to increase engagement in a presentation.

What are Connections?

Connections refer to the number of individual smartphones or devices that can actively participate in the interactive elements of a Sidekick presentation, such as polls. Each device connected represents one participant engaging with your content in real-time.

If you have 75 connections on your plan, you can have 75 phones connected at the same time. There is no limit to how many times you use the polls or interactive elements, you are just limited to how many phones can participate at the same time.

Understanding Sidekick Plan Limits:

Each Sidekick plan comes with its own limit on the number of Connections. Here's a brief overview:

  • 25 connections: You can have 25 phones connected at the same time.

  • 75 connections: You can have 75 phones connected at the same time.

  • 125 connections: You can have 125 phones connected at the same time.

  • 250 connections: You can have 250 phones connected at the same time.

  • 500 connections: You can have 500 phones connected at the same time.

If you need more connections, upgrade to a higher plan to unlock access.

Premium+ members receive 75 connections, Gold+ plans vary from 75 connections to 500 connections.

Coleader Premium and DYM Gold members have Sidekick Essential, which includes 5 connections.

Tips for Managing Connections:

  1. Know Your Audience Size: Choose a plan based on the number of participants you expect.

  2. Test Your Setup: Before your main event, test the connection setup to ensure smooth operation.


We're so excited to be able to add engagement to presentations using Sidekick and look forward to more features in the future for phone connections.
