Four Ways to Think About Organizing Your Presentation Content

Four Ways to Think About Organizing Your Presentation Content

Slidebank is such a flexible tool, it really puts you in control of how your PowerPoint content is viewed, used and consumed by your colleagues.

Sometimes, however, this flexibility can seem a bit of a minefield when it comes to organizing not just your PowerPoint files, but your users' abilities profiles too.

So here are four simple ways to think about your presentation content, which may make the decision-making process easier....

As well as rebranding (you can read about that here), we have recently launched a new version of the Slidebank interface.

This is cleaner, crisper and more responsive, giving your content the opportunity to shine.

We've also enhanced existing features and added new ones, including support for Word and Excel files, and the ability to make changes to existing Virtual presentations.

Over the past year, we've been working away behind the scenes on revamping our brand.

Partnering with the fabulously talented Confederation Studio in London, we've created a new visual identity to bring the Slidebank brand back in line with who we really are.

Take a look at our new brand identity, interface, and reinvigorated mission. We're very excited about what the future holds!

Understanding Departments and Roles in Slidebank

Slidebank's structure can be set up to echo your company's hierarchy. However, to keep things simple, we operate with 3 layers:

  1. Departments (e.g. Marketing)
  2. Roles (e.g. Marketing Manager)
  3. Users (e.g. Jane Smith)

Each user must belong to a Role and a Department. It's very easy to set these up.

Managing Account Usage and User Churn

With Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, as within organizations, it's natural to have a certain degree of user churn. The extent of this will largely depend on a) the size of your company b) the fluidity of the industry and frequency with which people move roles and departments, and c) the nature of your account use.

Adding New Users

Adding New Users

Adding new users to your Slidebank account is easy. You can either add them as you go, one by one, or we can help you with a batch upload. The latter can certainly be the best option when you're just starting off with your account, especially if you have hundreds of users.

Just follow these instructions...

New season, new start

New season, new start

It was with a slight twinge of shame that we recognized we'd maybe 'let ourselves go' slightly in the public face side of things.

We'd been so busy talking to our customers and working heads down to deliver a premium presentation management service that we managed to overlook the fact that we had cornflakes in our hair and odd socks on our feet. Metaphorically speaking!
