Go to the SlideContent administrator portal to upload and manage assets to SlideContent.
In the left panel, you'll find the asset categories. As soon as you upload an asset in the SlideContent administrator portal, the asset will be available in the SlideContent plugin in PowerPoint.
Uploading assets is the same for each asset category:
- select "create" or "add" to create or upload a new asset
- provide an asset name (asset name displayed in the SlideContent plugin) and supertip (additional text when user hovers over the asset name)
- drag and drop the asset in the dropzone or select the asset by clicking "click to browse"
Editing assets is the same for each asset category:
- check the uploaded asset by clicking the Download icon
- edit the properties of the asset by clicking the edit icon
- delete the asset by clicking the delete icon
1. Corporate Templates
PowerPoint Templates are the groundwork for PowerPoint productivity. With templates, you define the layout of your slides (title, logo, text, footer) and default color sets. By applying a template, your presentation will be formatted automatically.
Upload a template to SlideContent to distribute the corporate templates to all powerpoint users. Typically, templates are saved as .potx or .pot files, but you can also upload a regular powerpoint file (.pptx or .ppt) and SlideContent will make it available as a template.
Define the corporate fonts. Please note the defined fonts have to be installed on the PC of the user. The SlideContent PowerPoint plugin will only filter out the corporate fonts in a short font list.
Set the font colors: you can use the color picker or set the color code.
Use the arrows to switch between color codes: RGB, HSL (Hue, Saturation, Luminosity) or HEX web code. You can define the transparency in RGB and HSL with the A code (0=fully transparent; 1=no transparency) or with the slider in HEX, RGB and HSL.
Trick: to identify the color of a graphical asset on your corporate website, you can use the handy Chrome extension Colorzilla.
The Plugin will show only the selected font colors.
First, you'll need to define image groups to structure the image asset library. Groups show as expandable menus in the plugin.
After you've defined the image groups, you can add an individual image or bulk upload a set of images.
Defining Video Groups and adding individual videos or a set of videos in bulk upload is similar to Images.
SlideContent supports MP4 videos, the most common video formats. Other formats can be converted using the Handbrake application.
Shapes are different from images: in PowerPoint, shapes can be formatted: change the fill color and border color. As such, a shape library can be in a single color
As with fonts, also corporate shape colors can be defined.
Statements are typically added at the bottom of slides to indicate confidentiality or other important messages.
Set a label ("Confidentiality" and "Trademark" in the example below) and the text for each statement. You can also define the font name and size to be used for statements. Also indicate if the statement can be inserted on the current slide or/and on all slides. You can even upload an icon for each statement.
Slidesets of commonly used slides are a great timesaver. Think of slides with case studies, references, corporate locations.
Upload a slideset, and each slideset will be converted into an expandable menu of the individual slides.
Icons are similar to shapes, but are typically used for creating drawings or diagrams. You can upload the specific .ico format, regular image formats (.png, .jpg, .jpeg) and shape formats (.svg, .emf).
Defining Icon Groups and adding individual icons or a set of icon in bulk upload is similar to the other asset categories.
9. Useful links
Add links to useful webpages (corporate branding guidelines, support website,...) that will appear in the plugin.
