There's no need to worry about unwanted questions or an overflow of funny comments showing up on screen; use Q&A moderation to filter out those questions and control the experience.

If you’re on a Pro, Teams, Conference or Enterprise plan, you can select this option either in the Settings menu or directly on your Q&A slide. Use the link to approve or dismiss incoming questions before the audience get to upvote their favorites.

Via the Q&A menu

To enable moderation via the Q&A menu, click on the Q&A button on the top of the screen in Edit view, then toggle Moderation:

Via the Interactivity tab

If you don't see Q&A button, you can enable moderation through the Interactivity tab on the right side panel. Click Interactivity, then Menti, then toggle Moderation:

Directly on your Q&A slide

Start by adding a Q&A slide:

Then toggle "Moderation" in the "Content" tab and copy the URL or slick Open in New Tab:

While moderating, you can choose between rejecting a question to remove it from the list, or approving a question to make it visible on the presenters screen as well as the audiences devices.

For the brave: Moderate your own session

Our moderation feature is designed to be so easy to use that you can moderate your own session while you’re on stage. To ensure a smooth experience, these are our recommendations:

  • Try to only dismiss truly irrelevant questions, you save time by letting the audience do the prioritization with upvotes

  • If you have activated Q&A for your whole presentation, you can use the time when the participants are voting on a question to moderate incoming questions during the presentation. This saves you from needing to moderate all the questions at the end

  • You can also try and adapt your presentation for self-moderation by letting the audience spend time thinking about subjects or discussing something in smaller groups, and use that time to moderate!

Let someone else moderate your session

Simply send the link to someone else to let them filter out the questions before they show up on your screen for everyone to see. Make sure to have everything prepared and tried out the function with your moderator beforehand. Also consider preparing your moderator for certain subjects you’d like to avoid so they can filter them out. Your moderator won't need access to their own license in order to moderate, anyone with access to the moderation link will be able to help you with moderating incoming questions.

Pro tip: Select which questions to show "in full screen"

In the moderator view, you can also select which question should be highlighted in the presentation and thereby choose which questions to address by selecting "Show question!.

Mark it as answered when you’re done!
