“Every Slide Counts” isn’t just a marketing slogan for us. Our goal is to make the process of managing your PowerPoint slide and presentation content as easy and efficient as possible… so you can squeeze every bit of value from these important assets. This means we never stop looking for ways to make SlideSource.com even better. Recently, we released a number of new and improved features that do exactly that. Each of these new features were specifically requested by users within the last six months. The first new feature we’ll look at is the Duplicate Slide Search Function.
One of the advantages of using SlideSource.com is that you only need one copy of any given slide in your slide library. That slide can then be used across multiple presentations within SlideSource.com. This means you only need to update one slide… in one place (the slide library) to automatically update all the presentations that contain it. Without SlideSource, you would need to track down the slide in each individual presentation on your hard drive, your colleagues’ hard drives, and your company’s server in order to open and update each one manually.
When customers started loading all of their presentation content into SlideSource, they found that they had many copies of the same slide uploaded because they were duplicated in presentation after presentation. The good news is SlideSource.com users can now easily track down and eliminate all of the duplicate versions they have accumulated and replace the versions they don’t want with the version they do want in every presentation it appears in. Here’s what the process looks like.
Step 1: Select your search criteria and designate a Primary Slide.
Step 2: Review duplicates and either ignore them, delete them or merge them into the version that you designated to be the Primary Slide.
That’s it, you’re done!
