Creating your presentation
Here are a few things to keep in mind when you are creating your Mentimeter presentation:
If you have a time limit on your presentation, remember to take into account that your audience will need time to connect their smartphone or smart device .
Make sure that you give enough time for your audience to answer questions that you have included in the presentation.
If you want to discuss the results of your presentations, you should allocate time for this too.
If needed, your audience should be reminded to bring their smartphones or smart device to the presentation so they can vote.

After you have created your Mentimeter presentation, check through this list to make sure that you are ready for the stage.
In the Edit View of Mentimeter, there is a Settings option in the top menu. Here you can find some important settings that you should adjust whilst creating your presentation:
Voting pace: Check the voting pace to decide if you want the audience to only see the slide you are on, or if the audience should be able to go through the presentation at their own pace. You decide!
Comments from Audience: If you want your audience to be able to submit comments during your presentation, you can turn this on.
Hide results: if you do not want your audience to get influenced by each other's answers you can hide the results on all question slides. You will be able to show your results again during your presentation by pressing the 'H' key on your keyboard while the slide is open.
Q&A: If you have enabled Questions from Audience in your presentation, you can configure the settings for this in the settings menu as well.

Aside from the settings, there are some other things that you should double-check in your presentation to make sure that everything is perfect!
