Once you have your presentation opened, click on the drop-down menu by the “Present” button in the upper right corner. Choose the option “Presenter View” from the drop-down menu. When the Presenter View window opens click “Start new” under “Audience Tools”.


      3. Tools to use

Once you have your Q & A created there are some features to keep in mind while using it. You can choose which slide to feature the Q & A link by using the drop down menu on the left side of the presenter view window. You can also filter the audience of the Q&A by selecting who can view by clicking on the drop down menu that follows “Accepting questions from” in the presenter view. The speaker notes tab in the presenter view allows you to store various information or data that you may need during a presentation.
