Word Cloud, also known as wordle or word collage, is one of Mentimeter's most popular question types. Your audience input words to create a Word Cloud that will grow and expand in an impressive way.
The Word Cloud is good to use when you do not already know what participants will vote for, and you want to emphasize the most popular or common words. It will look best when the answers are expected to be short - no more than a few words!
Create a Word Cloud
This is how you create a Word Cloud with Mentimeter:
- Create a new slide
- Choose Word Cloud
- Fill in your question
That's it! Now it's up to your audience to fill the Word Cloud with their input.
- You can choose the maximum number of entries the audience may submit. Please note that two words separated by a space still count as one entry.
- If you are anticipating inappropriate words submitted by your audience, you can use the profanity filter to remove those words from the Word Cloud.
- If you want to let the audience submit several times, you can allow them to vote more than once from the same device.

This is how it looks when you get a vote in the wordcloud. As you get more votes, the most popular words will appear bigger and bigger.
Removing unwanted entries
In case your audience enters undesired words that haven't been captured by our profanity filter, or you simply want to remove addressed input or tidy up the results before exporting to PDF, you can remove input from Word Clouds and Open Ended questions. This can be done either in the Mentimote or directly on your presentation screen. Find out how to do it here.
