Mentimeter works seamlessly with Excel, letting you export the results from your presentation directly to a spreadsheet.

You can also choose to export the results as presentation screenshots.

How to export the results to Excel

Once you have received votes on your presentation, you can export the results from the results page.

To open the results page from the presentation editor, click on the Results button at the top of the screen.

How to export your results to Excel

Once on the results page, click on the Download button in the top right corner and select 'Spreadsheet (XLSX)'.

What's in the exported spreadsheet

In the spreadsheet, you can find different sheets:

The first sheet lets you follow the individual voters, as they are assigned a number. You can see what they have answered on each question.

The second sheet presents the voting results per question. In this example, an Image Choice question, you can see how many votes the options have gotten.

The third sheet shows the same information as the second one, but is different per voting session. Different voting sessions are started with the function Ask questions again that you access in the presentation view menu. The export to excel will also include results from previous sessions.

Restricted Excel exports

Subscription owners and admins have the possibility to restrict information in and access to the Excel export on a workspace level in order to improve anonymity.

If you are an admin or an owner you can enable this restriction in the Team Settings menu:

There, scroll down to the Limited spreadsheet exports option and toggle Limit exports:

When toggled, the following restrictions will apply:

  • Excel export is disabled if there are fewer than 10 participants in any session of a presentation

  • The timestamp (date) is removed from the Excel export (Responses and Q&A)
