Control PowerPoint Permissions


Abilities in Slidebank can be turned on or off for departments, roles and individuals. It's fully flexible, helping you find the right level of control for your company's culture. This makes Slidebank the first choice for those with compliance and security concerns.

Examples of abilities you can turn on or off are:


Ability to Upload

Use administrators as gatekeepers to new content in your Slidebank if you need to, ensuring all content's been signed off already.

Ability to Share

Turn off users' ability to share presentation files, either by secure link or by sharing as an email attachment.


Ability to Edit

Ensure that only certain individuals have the ability to download PowerPoint files for editing.

Ability to Download in PowerPoint

If you need to, you can make sure that some users, e.g. clients, can only download presentation files as PDF, not PowerPoint.


And many more...

Lock PowerPoint Slide Content 


Protect sensitive PowerPoint slide content, without having to turn the entire presentation into a PDF. 

This means you can retain animations or embedded video elsewhere in the presentation, but your protected slides, such as pricing pages or Terms and Conditions, stay safe.

Lock as JPEG

Lock slides as JPEGs so they only export from Slidebank as images, not editable PowerPoint slides.

Lock Slide Objects

Make the entire slide Read-Only. It remains a PowerPoint slide when shared from Slidebank, but all objects will be locked against editing.

Group Presentation Slides Together


Control how people use your slides in their presentations. Sometimes compliance mandates the inclusion of core decks of slides, or that information be presented in a particular order. Slidebank helps you do this through grouping.

Make Slides Mandatory

Make slides in a particular group mandatory - if a user wants any slide in that presentation for their new deck, they must have the mandatory slides as well.

Lock Slides in Order

Ensure that slides appear in new presentations, locked in a particular order. 

Create Chapters

Have a long presentation that needs breaking up into sections? Not a problem. Just create a new group for each chapter so users can add all to their presentation simply by selecting one slide.

Color Coded

Make groupings distinct by creating your own color code for each group or chapter in your deck.

Manage The Appearance Of Your Brand


Apply Templates

Load up your Slidebank with your brand's templates for users to choose from. Segment them by department or client if you like. Users can preview and apply new templates to their slide selections at the click of a button, helping them stay brand compliant.

Find & Use Existing Content

Instead of writing presentations from scratch each time, sales reps and other users can easily search for useful slides and re-use them in new presentations. Get more mileage out of existing marketing content, and amplify your brand.

Control User Access To Presentation Files


Define Hierarchies

Follow your organization's structure and segment users into teams and departments.

Filter Search Results

Share files across the company or keep within departments. Replicate natural data silos where necessary and allow some users to view files but not others.

Define User Access

At group, role or individual level. If a user doesn't have access to a presentation, it will be invisible to them. If they don't have access to any presentation in a folder, the folder will be invisible too.

Hide Old Versions

Have a blanket rule (set for departments, teams or individuals) for hiding old versions of files from view, or manage on a case-by-case basis.

Track Usage

Slidebank automatically keeps audit trails of who has downloaded, emailed and edited which presentation files.

Set Expiry Date

Set a date for your PowerPoint file to expire. When this date comes round, the slides will immediately be invisible to other users, and placeholders will appear in virtual presentations. 


Slidebank is a Self-Service system



Beyond initial setup (which we help you with), Slidebank is essentially a self-service system. Nominated administrators manage users, access levels, presentation folders and other administrative tasks. The administrator system is different from the Slidebank interface, so most users will not have access to these 'behind the scenes' system controls.

Some things you can do with the administrator system:


Data & Analytics

Slidebank gives you access to usage metrics, helping you to see which presentations are most valued by your teams, which users get the most out of Slidebank, and the peaks and troughs in Slidebank usage. 

Audit Trails

Has a presentation recently changed? Slidebank lets you view a full audit trail to see who's had access to a presentation, the changes they have made and how they've shared it. Everything downloaded by a user from Slidebank is automatically time and date stamped so you have a foolproof record. Not just that, but you have full forensic reconstruction capability to deliver changed or deleted slides used in the past.


Add & Remove Users

When someone leaves or joins your organisation, you can simply add or remove them from your Slidebank account, set up a profile for them or give them new access privileges.

Create New Departments

Slidebank lets you build silos into your user structures if necessary, setting different access privileges for different departments or roles within  your company's hierarchy. Build teams and departments to reflect those of your organisation.


Use Slidebank For Approved Content Only

If you wish, your Administrator can act as the gatekeeper to all content available through Slidebank. You can make it so only Administrators can upload presentations, meaning the only slides users can see and share will already have been approved.
