Slides with screenshots of your activities appear in the deck. Each screenshot has its own slide.

Screenshot slides appear a bit different than activity slides. Unlike activity slides, screenshots won’t have the blue marks in the corners. The notes section, likewise, will contain the title of the activity, but will not have any link.

Helpful tip: You can also download screenshots of your activities from the web. Check out the Download a screenshot article for instructions.

Tips on survey screenshots

If you insert the screenshot of a survey that has received responses, then the screenshot will show audience members progress through the survey at the time the screenshot was taken. If there are no responses to the survey at the time you insert the screenshot, then it will show only the survey title and instructions to respond.
