Using presenter notes in the desktop app

Need a cue? Use presenter notes in Prezi Present as reminders to highlight key information, or record questions and feedback from your audience while presenting. You can use notes to practice and prepare, then review them while delivering your presentation with Presenter view. Collaborators that have editing rights to your presentation can also add and view presenter notes.

Paid feature: Presenter notes are available for users with a Plus or higher Prezi plan. Luckily it’s a breeze to upgrade your license and get access to this and all the other great features our Prezi plans have to offer.
