How to Use the AhaSlides Zoom Integration

Our baby lets you blend interactive slides with ease into your Zoom meetings. No more shuffling between apps - your viewers can vote, comment and discuss straight from their video call. Here's how:

Step 1: Log into your Zoom account, search for 'AhaSlides' in the 'Apps' section, and click 'Get'.

Step 2: Once installed, hosting is simple. Launch the app during your meeting and log into your AhaSlides account. Pick a deck, share your screen, and invite everyone to participate from within the call. They won't need separate login details or devices - just the Zoom app open on their end.

Step 3: Run your presentation normally and watch the responses roll in on your shared slideshow.

💡Not hosting but attending? There are many ways to attend an AhaSlides session on Zoom: 1 - By adding the AhaSlides app from the Zoom app marketplace. You will be inside AhaSlides automatically when the host starts their presentation (if that doesn't work, select 'Join as a Participant' and input the access code). 2 - By opening the invitation link when a host invites you.

What You Can Do with AhaSlides Zoom Integration

Icebreakers for Zoom meeting

A short, quick round of Zoom icebreakers will surely get everyone in the mood. Here are some ideas to organise it with AhaSlides Zoom integration:

#1. Two truths, one lie

Have participants share 3 short "facts" about themselves, 2 true and 1 false. Others vote on the lie.

💭 Here you need: AhaSlides' multiple-choice poll slide.

#2. Finish the sentence

Present an unfinished statement for people to complete in 1-2 words in real-time polls. Great for sharing perspectives.

💭 Here you need: AhaSlides' word cloud slide.

#3. Werewolves

The Werewolves game, also known as Mafia or Werewolf, is a super popular large-group game that excels in breaking the ice and makes meetings a whole lot better.

Game overview:

  • Players are secretly assigned roles: Werewolves (minority) and Villagers (majority).
  • The game alternates between the "night" and "day" phases.
  • Werewolves try to eliminate Villagers without being detected.
  • Villagers try to identify and eliminate Werewolves.
  • The game continues until either all Werewolves are eliminated (Villagers win) or Werewolves outnumber Villagers (Werewolves win).

💭 Here you need:

  • A moderator to run the game.
  • Zoom's private chat feature to assign roles to players.
  • AhaSlides' brainstorm slide. This slide lets everyone submit their ideas on who might be the werewolf and vote for the player they want to eliminate.
