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
The number of votes in the lower-right corner (zero, since we have no votes yet!)
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
To go to the next slide in the presentation, use your keyboard’s arrow-keys or the arrows in the presentation menu. When you go to the next slide, the new slide will also be shown in the participants’ voting devices. To let your audience move on to the following questions without you needing to show them, you can change pacing settings.
When you have received votes
As soon as your audience has voted on your presentation, the results will automatically appear in the Presentation view, as you can see below:
The Presentation menu
If you hover with your pointer in the lower-left corner of the presentation view, a presentation menu will appear.
Here you will find all the settings and functions that you can set and use during the presentation. In the menu you have shortcuts for hiding the results, closing voting or starting a countdown to close voting. If you click on the “More” icon, you get additional settings and functions:
Open the Mentimote
Show or hide voting instructions
Show test votes
Show history and trends
Turn comments from audience on/off
The Present dropdown menu
Next to the Preset button in the top right corner, you will find a small arrow which you can click to reveal a dropdown menu with the following option:
Open Mentimote: opens the Mentimote in a new tab.
Preview presentation: opens Preview mode where you can see what the presentation will look like for both you and your audience.
