Starting Your Presentation

Presenting on Glisser is an easy and hassle free process. This guide will run through the process of presenting and what shortcut keys you can use for specific features.

  • After you’ve logged into your Glisser account, select the presentation that you wish to present from within the Presentations tab. You can also search for a specific presentation title using the search bar within the top right hand side of your screen.
  • A sidebar will appear on the right with a list of the possible actions that can be performed for this presentation.
  • On the sidebar, select Present From Start.

Navigating Your Slide Deck

Your presentation can be presented using a single laptop connected to a main screen, however for large events it is recommended that at least two laptops are used with a switcher (for more details, see guide on AV and WiFi Setup).

Once you have entered a presentation a slide will appear displaying your custom URL code – your audience should be prompted to type this into their web browser on their device (Google Chrome or Safari for example). You can either use a keyboard or a clicker to move forward or back through your presentation.

Q&A Feed

At any point during your presentation you can switch between your slide view to your Q&A view by pressing the 3 hotkey on your keyboard. This will show the audience submitted questions, ordered by audience likes.

Polls

When you reach a poll slide it will show the question to the audience. Allow them time to answer, before pressing the space bar to reveal the live audience results (so the results will update as users continue to vote). Pressing space bar once more will pause the results.

If you are presenting a quiz poll (with a correct and incorrect answer), pressing R on your keyboard will reveal which of the answers are correct and which are incorrect.

Leaderboard

If your presentation contains any polls with right/wrong answers then a leaderboard feature will be available on the live view. To access the leaderboard at any point throughout your presentation (after at least one right/wrong answer poll has been presented) then hit the 6 key on your keyboard.

Team Slide Management

When creating your presentation, it is possible to have multiple people from different accounts managing/ editing a copy of that presentation.

In order to enable this feature

  1. Click the presentation you wish to edit
  2.  On the right hand side, turn on ‘Team Presentation’.
  3. Once you have enabled ‘Team Presentation’, select the ‘Team’ icon  on the left hand side
  4. Select ‘Invite Members’ to add email addresses of the team members. (Picture of toggle of next to ‘Team Presentation).
  5. All invited members, including admin, are able to view and edit their version of the presentation.

Hotkeys

Feedback Survey

The survey tool is a great way to gather open ended feedback about your event.

Moderating Your Question Feed and Presentation

One of the core features of Glisser is the ability to have the audience ask questions to the presenter whilst the presentation is taking place, which can be answered at any point during the presentation. A presenter can either choose to have the questions moderated before appearing on the main screen to be answered, or allow the audience to submit questions directly to the live question feed.
