Mentimeter works absolutely best when used directly in your web browser, where you can have full control over the experience. This is also how 99% of our users choose to run their presentations.
There are two options for you to make a full presentation of both questions and slides without needing any integrations:
- Quick Slides
- Combine apps
If you feel that it is certainly necessary to combine Mentimeter with other presentation tools via integrations, there is another solution:
- Powerpoint plugin for Windows, Mac and Office 365
1. Use Quick Slides
With our new feature Quick Slides you can add simple slides as a complement to the questions and hence control everything from your Mentimeter account.
Pro tip: Import your PowerPoint slides as images
If you export your PowerPoint slides as images, you can import them into Mentimeter by using a Quick Slide with image. That way, you can style the presentation as you'd like, but still have everything inside Mentimeter.
2. Combine apps
You can easily combine Mentimeter with your PowerPoint presentations, just by using functions that are already on your computer.
This is how you do it:
- Open Mentimeter in your usual web browser
- Open PowerPoint (or your other favorite presentation tool) separately
- Put both presentations in full screen mode
- Close all other programs for a flawless experience
On PC, use Alt + Tab to seamlessly switch between the two programs. On a Mac, use multi-touch gestures (three or four finger swipe) to move between full-screen apps.
3. PowerPoint plugin for Windows, Mac and Office 365
To integrate Mentimeter in a PowerPoint presentation, we have a plugin for PowerPoint 2016 that you can download with your Office 365 account. Head over to https://www.mentimeter.com/app/powerpoint for instructions about how to download the plugin.
Unfortunately, you cannot add more than 4-5 questions with the Power Point plugin due to limitations in Microsoft's API. There is unfortunately not much we can do about it at the moment, so please refer to one of the other solutions if you need more than 4-5 Mentimeter questions.
