So, you've started making presentations in Mentimeter? Great to hear it! When you are ready to present, click on the blue “Present” button in the top right corner of the editor and you will be taken to the Presentation view.

What you see

When you click “Present” and start presenting, you will see a few things:

  • The voting instructions at the top

  • Your question in the upper-left corner or center

  • The navigation arrows in the lower-left corner

  • The number of votes in the lower-right corner (zero, since we have no votes yet!)

  • The number of reactions in the low-right corner, if they have been turned on for your slides

  • The Presentation menu to open the settings in the lower-left corner (note: the Presentation menu will only appear once you hover over this area).

For now, you will not see any results. But as soon as your audience starts to vote on the presentation, the results will automatically appear in this view.

How to move between slides

When you go to the next slide, the new slide will also be shown in the participants’ voting devices.
