SlideSource feature focus: Content Ownership

Most if not all of the stress a person experiences in the workplace can be traced back to their lack of control over the circumstances they work in but…

Ownership gives you control

SlideSource’s newest feature, Content Ownership, gives you total control over the all the slides you’re responsible for.

If someone changes a slide in a slide library that you own, you will be notified and the changes they made will not become official until you approve them. Slides uploaded to a slide library you own will be marked “Pending” until you approve them. Detailed information about this exciting, stress-reducing new feature, and screen shots showing it in action, can be found here.

If you aren’t already a SlideSource.com user, sign up for a free account and give it a try. The free subscription has all of the features and capabilities of the paid subscription levels so you will be able to see exactly what makes SlideSource.com the most innovative and useful presentation management system available. This is also a great time to start a paid subscription since we’re offering a 20% discount for new subscriptions through the end of February.

If you are already a subscriber, be sure to give Content Ownership a try soon. And in either case, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.

SlideSource turns two today but you get the gift!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been two years since SlideSource went public, but we’re so excited about reaching this milestone that we’re giving you the birthday present.

For the rest of January and all of February, all new subscribers will receive a 20% discount for their first year of SlideSource service. If you’ve been on the fence for a while, consider going all in with SlideSource now!

Here are some other highlights from our second year:

  • 2016 saw some great additions to SlideSource.com, including two new features that were specifically requested by users (as so many of our new features are):
  • The first was the very popular duplicate slide search and removal function. You can find out more about this important and useful feature here.
  • We also added a “slide ownership” process that, when enabled, ensures changes to your valuable presentation content become official only after being approved by a slide’s owner. There’s more information about this feature here.
  • Once again, we were gold-level sponsors of Rick Altman’s Presentation Summit – the premiere conference for anyone who has anything to do with creating or delivering presentations. Our own Bob Befus demonstrated SlideSource to the attendees before a general session (the duplicate slide search and delete function earned an enthusiastic reaction) and we had a chance to talk to many highly-engaged presentation professionals at our booth.

So what is in store for 2017? Well, we can’t spill all the beans yet, but imagine being able to access your slide library directly from within PowerPoint? Imagine opening up a PowerPoint file and getting notified that there are updated versions of some of your slides ready to incorporate into the deck at the click of a button? Stay tuned for exciting news as we continue developing our vision for SlideSource.com into the future.

Overall, it’s been a fantastic year and we would like to thank all of our subscribers and supporters for helping to make that happen. We’re looking forward to having an even better third year and we sincerely hope you will be part of it!

Are you washing dishes with that PowerPoint deck?

Then you don’t need to include the kitchen sink.

There seems to an ingrained human instinct to fill slide files with lots of stuff. Stuff that might not really be needed but is thrown in anyway, just in case. In other words, kitchen sink slides. Maybe it’s a third option that needs to be added to the proverbial fight or flight stress responses.

It’s a perfectly understandable response that can be necessary and useful when you are initially drafting a presentation. Just make sure that before you actually use the deck, you define exactly what the presentation needs to accomplish and ruthlessly remove every slide that doesn’t make a definite contribution by moving it closer to that goal.
