Your slide deck will be uploaded to the mmhmm server and convert into an mmhmm presentation. The process may take a few moments depending on the size of your deck.

Use an mmhmm screen share slide

Keynote, PowerPoint, and Google Slides have a feature called "present to window" that makes it significantly easier to share the contents of a presentation. This feature also hides the toolbars and presenter notes from your audience. In any of these programs, present your slide deck to a new window, then use an mmhmm screen share slide to select that window to show.

Here's how to set up "present to window" in several presentation software tools:

Google Slides

In the top right-hand side of the window, click Slideshow.

Click the vertical ellipsis button and select Exit full screen. This will present your slide deck in a new window.

Then, create a mmhmm screen share slide to share your Google Slides presentation slides. 

Keynote

In the menu bar on the top of the screen, click Play and select In Window. This will present your slide deck in a new window.

PowerPoint

Start the presentation. You should see the presentation starting on a window instead of full screen.

Once "present to window" is set up, create a mmhmm screen share slide to share your presentation slides. 

Export your slides as images

To import slides into mmhmm from another service, you must first export your slides as images.

Once you've exported the slides as images, unzip them. Then, upload them as slides in mmhmm.
