Sharing templates and themes in Mentimeter

Did you know you can share Mentimeter templates and themes with your colleagues?

You might have a presentation template that is used by several members of the teaching team across your department, or you may have created a theme that your colleagues would like to utilise. Mentimeter’s new Groups functionality means you can now create your template or theme once, and then share it with the people you choose. You can even share it with the whole organisation if you want to.

How do I create a group?  Mentimeter settings menu

Before you can share materials, you need to create a group with the members you want to allow access to your shared resource.

Open the account settings menu at the top right of the screen (your initials). Select Groups and click the Create Groups button. Type in the name of the group you want to create. Once you’ve created your group you can start adding members.

As the creator of the group you will automatically be added as a member. Team members can co-exist in multiple groups.
