If the presenter is happy for their slides to be downloaded (along with your personal notes), you will be able to download them from the DOWNLOAD tab.

How do I access or download my slides and notes?

Whilst the presentation is live you can activate the Send me the presentation toggle and you will be sent an email with the slides and your notes once the presenter ends the presentation.

Once the presentation is over this will become a button and you will be sent the slides and your notes instantly.

Information on turning on downloads for slides and notes can be found here.

How do I clear my cache?

To Open To Close

When you log into Glisser as an audience member, your email address or device ID number is cached (saved) on the device you’re using to access your presentation.

This is to save you time, as it means you don’t have to re-enter your email address each time you access a presentation or event using Glisser. It’ll also mean Glisser will load much more quickly, using far less data the next time you log into a presentation.

However, it will also mean that if you need to login on the same device using a different email address, or view any changes to the presentation you’re attending, you’ll need to clear your cache. Here’s how:

Chrome (mobile)

  • Select the three dots in the top right-hand corner of your browser.
  • Choose Settings from the drop-down menu.
  • Then Privacy.
  • You’ll then be given options around what exactly you want to clear. We’d recommend Clear All.
  • Click Finished in the top right-hand corner to complete this action to clear the cache, and then return to your browser.

Safari (mobile)

  • Go to Settings.
  • Scroll down until you hit the Safari icon.
  • Then scroll down until just below the Privacy and Security section. You’ll see an option to Clear History and Website Data in blue writing; select this.
  • You’ll then need to confirm your decision. Once you’ve done this the Clear History and Website Data option will be greyed out.
  • Additionally, clear your browsing history.

Chrome (laptop)

  • Open Chrome.
  • In the top right, click the Menu Chrome Menu.
  • Click More tools > Clear browsing data.
  • In the dialog that appears, select the checkboxes for the types of information that you want to remove.
  • Use the menu at the top to select the amount of data you want to delete. Select the beginning of time to delete everything.
  • Click Clear browsing data.

Safari (laptop)

  • Open Safari if it is not already open.
  • Choose Safari > Empty Cache, and then click Empty.

Firefox (laptop)

  • Open Mozilla Firefox.
  • Click the Menu button (aka the “hamburger button” – the one with three horizontal lines) and then choose Options. If Options is not listed in the menu, click Customize and drag Options from the list of Additional Tools and Features over to the Menu. Note: If you’re using the menu bar, choose Tools and then Options instead.
  • In the Options window now open, click the Privacy tab on the left.
  • In the History area, click the clear your recent history link. Tip: If you don’t see that link, change the Firefox will: option to Remember history. You can change it back to your custom setting when you’re done.
  • In the Clear Recent History window that appears, set the Time range to clear: to Everything.
  • In the list at the bottom of the window, uncheck everything except for Cache. Note: If you wish to clear other kinds of stored data, feel free to check the appropriate boxes. They will be cleared with the cache in the next step. Tip: Don’t see anything to check? Click the button next to Details.
  • Click on the Clear Now button.
  • When the Clear Recent History window disappears, all of the files saved (cached) from your Internet browsing activities in Firefox will have been removed.

How do I control my presentation and engagement features?

To Open To Close

You can control your presentation and engagement features by using Glisser hotkeys. You can access a list of these keys by pressing the H key on your laptop to pull up the keyboard shortcuts and hotkeys during your presentation, or you can see the keyboard shortcuts and hotkeys here.

How do I request custom features?

To Open To Close

Following a product roadmap, we are constantly updating and improving the Glisser platform. We’d love to know what you think and what you’d like to see in the platform next. Popular feature requests will be slotted into our product roadmap.

If there’s anything you’d love to see in Glisser, please speak to your client experience representative or email us on and we’ll pass it onto our development team.

How do I Start and End a Session in Glisser?

To Open To Close

To activate a session, click on Live Control Panel. You must then click on GO LIVE. This will make your session live and available for delegates to join.

To release all session content click on Publish (Present To The End). This is only available for sessions within an event.

To end a session, click on END SESSION. This will close your session blocking access to any content or live streams.

How much dedicated bandwidth will my venue need to make sure my presentation runs smoothly?

To Open To Close

The amount of bandwidth you will need will depend on how many attendees you will be having the day of your event and the bandwidth capabilities of the venue you are utilizing.

We typically recommend 10mbps for 100 attendees and that the Glisser laptops are hardwired.

How should I introduce Glisser to my audience?

To Open To Close

It’s a good idea to mention Glisser in any pre-event communication you have with your delegates to give people a heads-up. On the day, make sure your chair or moderator for the day includes a few words introducing Glisser to the room during the Welcome speech at the start of the day.

Below is our recommended template text, but again we’d recommend tailoring this to your own event.

We’ll be using Glisser today – they’re an event technology company helping to make presentations more interactive and useful for us all.

So they work by sharing slides direct to your phones or devices so you can download today’s presentations, and we’ll also be using Glisser to let you text in questions, and vote in polls throughout the event.

There’s no need to download anything.

Just put this URL: Into your internet browser on your device or phone (chrome or safari are fine). No need for www. in front, and it’s not case sensitive. All you need is to be on our wifi system [read out login details], or just use your 4G data.

To vote in polls, select your answer and press send.

To ask a question, just type your question into the text box at the bottom of your screen and press send.

Glisser will also let you send the slides to your email address after the presentation if you’ve logged in at the start, so there’s no need to take any photos of slides you like the look of. We hope you enjoy using it!

Is Glisser LIVE available to view on mobile and tablet?

To Open To Close

Yes, you are able to view a Glisser LIVE page from any mobile device that has access to a modern browser. Glisser LIVE can be used with all audience devices capable of accessing YouTube or LiveStream.

My account has been upgraded, how come it still says I’m on a ‘Free’ account?

To Open To Close

Once your account has been upgraded you will need to log out of Glisser, then log back in again to access the additional features.

What Are The Keyboard Shortcuts (Hotkeys)?

To Open To Close

Presenters will need to use certain keys to display their interactions on the big screen. By clicking on the same key again it will reverse the action.

Note that keys vary slightly depending on your browser (notably Safari).

Here you will see Glisser hotkeys:

What do I need to present with Glisser?

To Open To Close

You will need a computer or laptop with preferably a hardwire internet connection to run Glisser. Glisser works best on a Chrome browser, which you can download here. Your attendees, however, will be able to access the presentation through whatever browser they have available on their handheld device or laptop (excluding Internet Explorer).

What file types are supported by Glisser?

To Open To Close

Your Glisser presentation can be uploaded as a PowerPoint (.ppt or .pptx) or PDF (.pdf) file.

Wherever possible, we recommend that you set your Powerpoint or PDF to display with a ratio of 16:9 rather than 4:3 ratio. Keep in mind that when you upload PowerPoints and PDFs into a Glisser presentation, your presentation will lose any animations or gifs that were previously in your presentation.

If you do not use any of the above then you can also upload ODP, JPG, PNG and GIF.

When uploading JPG’s or PNG’s, please ensure the file is stored with a lowercase .jpg or .png as we do not support uppercase .JPG or .PNG.

What image size should I use for the background and logo?

To Open To Close

For the background image, the format can be either PNG or JPEG. A resolution of 1920×1080 or above works best with a file size limit of 2MB. The background image appears on any of the Glisser generated slides, so on the polls and Q+A wall.

For the logo, we’d recommend no more than 800px x 800px, and to aim for less than 100kb (file size limit is also 2MB). Logos should also have a transparent background.

For additional information please see our guide on selecting a background image.

What is presentation mirroring?

To Open To Close

Audience members will see the slides and polls shared from your Glisser account, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you also need to show your Glisser presentation on the main screen.

Some examples of when you might want to consider mirroring are:

  • You want to run a slide deck with complex animations (a Prezi presentation for example) but you still want to use all the interactive features of Glisser.
  • The speaker insists on sharing their slides directly from PowerPoint.

To mirror your presentation you will need one laptop to present from (to connect to the main screen), and another laptop signed into your Glisser presentation, ideally driven by an event assistant or an AV technician.

The second laptop operates Glisser in Presenter mode, mirroring the progress of the slides on the main screen. This ensures the audience devices are provided with the same slide as the presenter.

If you wish to show audience interaction (polls, Q&A feed, etc.) on the main screen, a switcher is required from the presenter’s laptop to the Glisser laptop, and back again.

What is the lead time you need for an event?

To Open To Close

We recommend getting in touch with us at least a month before the date of your event. This provides adequate time for the event to be built, and for us to confirm any technical requirements, especially for particularly large events with a high amount of attendees.

Which devices does Glisser work on?

To Open To Close

Glisser uses a web-based application that runs in the audience’s browser window. Glisser can therefore operate with all audience devices capable of accessing the internet.

This includes:

  • Apple iPhone
  • Apple iPad
  • Apple iPad Mini
  • Android smartphones
  • Android tablets
  • Windows smartphones
  • Windows tablets
  • Blackberry smartphones
  • All web-connected laptops

Please note that some internal company networks may have restrictions and or firewalls for specific websites and Livestream, so it’s safe to check with your network provider and event organizer if you are experiencing any issues signing up for your event.

Why are my questions not being displayed?

To Open To Close

When using Glisser, event organizers and presenters have the option to turn moderation on. This means that they have to accept or approve your question before it is displayed on delegates’ devices and the Q&A wall on the main screen. If your questions are not being displayed, it is likely that your questions have not been accepted by a moderator yet.

Moderation ensures questions remain relevant, grammatically correct, and appropriate. Moderators can approve, deny or edit as they are submitted. Moderators can also reply directly in the Q&A tab.

Why are my questions not being displayed?

More information about moderating questions can be found here.

Why can’t I access a presentation?

To Open To Close

If you are having trouble accessing a presentation it could be for one of a number of reasons:

  • If you are trying to access a presentation before the date of the event, the presenter may not have made their presentation public yet.
  • The presentation may require a password (speak to the presenter to get the presentation password).
  • Make sure that the URL (web address) has been entered incorrectly.
  • If it is after the presentation has ended, it may be that the presenter has taken the presentation down and has decided not to make it available to download.

Why is the shared moderation link not working?

To Open To Close

If your speaker/moderator is being asked to log into your Glisser account, this is due to one of these reasons:

  • You did not click on the clipboard symbol to the right of Live Control Panel. Please ensure you send the copied link that is generated from the clipboard symbol.
  • They are trying to access the moderation link on an incompatible browser (for example, IE).
  • They have not been provided with the entire moderation link. A long link is generated and please ensure they have the full link.
  • They did not create a guest account with the 72 hour limit.

In all of these instances you would need to re-generate and re-send the link.

Why was the audience not prompted to download presentation?

To Open To Close

If you have permitted your audience to download the slides after the presentation is complete, the speaker must push the presentation to the final slide to prompt the option for attendees to download slides and the notes they took during the presentation.

To make sure your audience has the ability to download the presentation, turn on the Download Content toggle on in your Content Settings.
