  2. The Completed Sessions tab contains a list of completed presentations with the name of the presentation, total attendees' present, number of questions posed by attendees', likes received, ratings received, and polls conducted.

Join From a Mobile Device

There are three ways for attendees to join your session from their mobile devices:
  • Connect through a web browser: The attendee goes to and enters the Join key from the instruction slide.
  • Connect through a "Join" link: The attendee clicks the Join link sent in the registration email.
  • Connect through the Viewer app: The attendee downloads the Viewer app from either the Play Store or the App Store, and once they're in the app, enters the Join key.
Once attendees are connected, they can use their mobile devices to view your slides, answer poll questions, pose questions about slides, and "like" other attendee's questions.
