Welcome to your Home screen! Simply put, your Home screen is the starting page that you see when you log in to your Mentimeter account. You can always click on the Mentimeter logo in the top left corner to return to this screen.

This is what you'll see when you log into Mentimeter:

From here you can create and access your recent presentations with just a few clicks.

Creating presentations

Under the Create Menti heading, you can find 3 options to create a new presentation:

  • "+ New presentation" will create a blank presentation

  • "+New quiz" will create a quiz

  • "+New survey" will create a survey

Whichever you choose, you will be taken directly to the edit view, where you can start to edit your presentation.

You can also get started from our pre-made templates. To get some inspiration, click on the "Templates" button in the bottom-left menu to add some examples to your account.

Below those options, you can see a number of useful sections to help you get started right away:

  • Recently viewed contains the presentations that you’ve recently worked with, both your own and presentations owned by others in your workspace, if you are part of a Mentimeter team.

  • Popular templates contains some great suggestions of presentations you can use with your audience.

  • Under Get to know Mentimeter you'll find inspiration in the form of text and video showing the potential you have using Mentimeter.

  • Popular features offers short tutorials on some of our most popular slide types for you to try out.

My Presentations

On the left side of the Home screen you can see your workspace and presentation menus:

Shared presentations and Shared templates contain presentations and templates that you and others have shared with the whole team.

My presentations is where you'll find all your own personal presentations. Here you can organize your presentations into folders, and sort both the presentations and the folders according to 'Presentation name', the name of the owner.

You can also use the search bar in the top right corner if you are looking for a specific presentation:

If you are a Pro or Enterprise user, in the Shared with me folder you will find presentations that have been shared with you directly as a Collaborator.

Note: it is not currently possible to move presentations that you do not own into folders.

Instantly start a presentation

If you press the little Play-icon to the left, you can immediately start the presentation without having to open the editor first:

Present from dashboard

Presentation options

Click on the three dots to the right of the presentation to open the menu for different actions such as renaming the presentation, moving it to a folder, viewing the results, or inviting collaborators:

The sidebar menu

The menu in the bottom-left corner of your Home screen can direct you to some very useful links:

  • Check out Integrations to learn about our integrations with other platforms, such as PowerPoint or MS Teams.

  • Find inspiration and ready-made presentations in Templates

  • If you want to learn more about the different ways you can use Mentimeter (whether you're new to Menti or already an experienced presenter), check out the Menti Academy

  • Trash is where you'll find presentations that you've recently deleted from your account. They will remain in Trash for 30 days, during with time you can restore them to your account. After the 30 days, they will be permanently deleted.

The account menu

The menu at the top right of your dashboard can help you navigate straight to your settings, billing and team-management pages: Team Settings, Manage Members, Groups and Workspace insights (for Owners or Admins of Team accounts).

The Knowledge Hub

In the bottom-right corner of the screen you will see a small icon with a question mark. This is the Knowledge Hub where you will find links to the Help Center, the MentiAcademy, tutorials or the chat functions where you can contact the support team.

Don't forget to look in our Help Center first - we might already have information there that can help you.
