Voting pace

Mentimeter offers two different ways for your audience to move through a presentation:

  • Presenter pace allows the presenter to control what slide that will be shown to the audience in their voting devices.

  • Audience pace lets voters move through the slides in the presentation on their own.

You can learn more about how the voting pace affects your presentation here.

You can set a presentation to Audience pace in the Settings menu, as shown below:

Once you set a presentation to Audience pace, voting will stay open for as long as you need. When you wish to stop collecting results, you can simply close voting:

Note: Audience pace cannot be used if your presentation includes Quiz type slides. For the Quiz slide type, the audience needs to answer the questions live, so the presentation has to be controlled live by the presenter in Presenter pace. Other question types can all be set to Audience pace. Learn more about the difference between Quiz slides and Question slides here.

Pro tip: if you want to collect input on your survey over a longer period of time, we recommend sending participants the voting link, rather than the 8-digit voting code, since the voting code is temporary and will be renewed every few days. You can learn more about the voting code validity here.
