How to present with the Mentimote

The Mentimote view is divided into three sections:

Left panel

On the left panel you can control specific settings for the slide you’re currently presenting, or for the presentation as a whole. These include:

This section will also adapt to whichever slide type you’re currently on, giving you specific commands and features (for example, changing the layout of responses or giving you the change to moderate specific inputs from the audience).

Middle section

The middle section shows you your current slide, as well as a preview of the next one. If you’ve added presenter notes to the current slide, you’ll see them under the slide preview. This is also where you can move on to the next slide (or return to the previous one) using the arrows at the bottom.

Right panel

The right panel controls the Q&A feature. You can open or close questions from the audience, show a specific question on screen, order questions by “top ranked” or “most recent”, and more.
