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 a 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 platforms:

Google Slides

Click Slideshow on the top right-hand side of the window.

Keynote

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

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.
