Sometimes you may be in a situation where not everyone in your audience has their own device. One example of this might be in a classroom, where several students are sharing one smartphone or another device. If you find yourself in this situation, it is still possible to enable each audience member to interact with Mentimeter themselves even if they are sharing a device. 

In order to enable this function, you need to make sure that you have selected the right voting pace. Click on the 'Configure' option in the' top right-hand corner of the screen when you are in the edit view of your presentation. This will open the 'Presentation settings'. Under 'Choose voting pace' select 'Audience pace' and then 'Vote several times per device' as shown in the image below:

You should prompt your audience to share their devices, to make sure that everyone has the chance to submit their answers. The first person should go through the whole presentation and vote on all the questions. At the end of the presentation, they can reload the presentation, so that someone else can vote on the questions from the same device. The votes will then be counted separately, meaning that everyone can take part in your interactive presentation! 

If you would like to let your audience vote several times per device, it is possible to do so on Open Ended and Word Cloud question types. Please refer to this help article for more information.
