Controlling a Presentation with the Proclaim Remote

Print Friendly and PDF

The Proclaim Remote allows you to control your presentation from a mobile device. Once you set up the Remote, follow these steps to control your presentation.

Note: While you can connect to your presentation through the internet, a local Wi-Fi connection will be more reliable and stable.

Navigate your presentation

When you select Control on any presentation, the Proclaim Remote shows your presentation on your mobile device.

For slides where the automatic playback option is enabled on the desktop, tapping a slide will immediately switch to that slide and begin playback. If automatic playback is disabled, tapping a slide will change to the slide, and playback will begin after the play button is tapped.

Tap a slide to change the slide currently being presented. Grab and drag the slider to adjust the size of the navigation bar slides.

Show a Quick Screen

Select the quick screen icon to access your Quick Screens.


The quick-screen menu allows you to switch the display to a blank slide or a pre-selected logo (the logo must be set from the Proclaim application on your desktop computer). The slide which was last visible before the quick-screen will remain highlighted. You can tap the highlighted slide to return to the same place in the presentation, or tap a different slide to dismiss the quick-screen and display the new slide instead.

View the Order of Service

Click the order of service icon to view the order of service. On a tablet, a dropdown menu displays, while on the mobile app the order of service is fullscreen.


The order of service menu allows you to jump to a specific service item in your presentation. The order of service menu is particularly useful when you need to skip between service items containing a large number of slides. On tablet devices, tapping anywhere outside of the order of service menu will dismiss it. On mobile phones, select the back arrow to return to the default presentation mode.

Change display settings

Select the display settings menu icon to adjust the settings for Proclaim Remote on your device.


The display settings menu allows you to select between the standard slide view and a high-contrast confidence view. You can also show your presentation notes and adjust the font size. To exit select the back arrow (on mobile phones) or tap anywhere outside the display settings menu to return to the default presentation mode. Grab and drag the slider to adjust the size of the notes section while in presentation mode.
