Click through the features and see what SlideKick can do for you
Slides as far as the eye can see
The slide library is compiled by every user on his own with just a few clicks. In the search results, therefore, only the content that a user is allowed to see through the directory permission is displayed.
Navigation through the folders of your library will take you to the right track. You can see only the PowerPoint presentations that are included in the folder.
You can enlarge the slides to the extent that you can read the text on the slides. If you are interested in the metadata of the slide, just switch to the detailed view. There you can sort the slides by title, last editor, last editing, date, or location.
Search slides for terms, time period, users
Finding a PowerPoint slide over the normal Windows search again costs time and effort. The Windows search returns a lot of filenames for your local storage media, but not the actual slides number. It is necessary to open the files and check if the desired slide is included. No search function is available in networks.
With SlideKick, the search becomes a children's game. Enter your search terms directly into the PowerPoint-integrated search text field. Filtering specifically for the title or content of the slide, the date of the last edit, the last editor, and an exact or approximate search are possible.
The missing link: copying slides
To copy a slide selection to the current presentation, use SlideKick's insert function. Decide for yourself: Should the formatting of the original or the target presentation be used?
Another advantage: SlideKick links the copied to the original slides and can signal you when the original has been updated. With one click, you've updated the slides.
You have edited a slide yourself? Then, use the copy back function to return these changes to the original presentation so that all other copies of that slide receive the signal.
Keep control over changes
If multiple people create a presentation, different versions of a slide may occur. The changes must then be compared and merged. So that you do not have to waste your time with merging slides, we have prepared a ready-made solution for you.
In order that you do not inadvertently overwrite your own changes or those of your colleagues, SlideKick will interrupt an update process. The differences between yours and the library version and also the different change times are displayed.
To resolve a conflict, SlideKick offers the following options. You explicitly select a version to override the other. Or, if you do not want to lose a change, you can resolve the conflict manually. SlideKick then adds both versions to your presentation.
Find slides and images by means of keywords
Whether slides or images, not always are terms present on a slide that you connect to it. In order to find them nevertheless, you can assign keywords to your slides and especially to your pictures.
To do this, select all slides or images to which you want to assign a keyword. From the context menu, you can select the keywords by typing them into the search field or, if it does not yet exist, adding new ones.
Archive intermediates well
The creation of a presentation often takes place step by step and produces several drafts which one would like to archive. To save drafts in the library and not to see 50 times the same slides in the search results, SlideKick helps you with version management.
With the SlideKick function, you can archive a presentation very easily. The version history shows you the list of all versions. If necessary, save a particular version as a presentation in the library.
In addition, you can import already existing versions of a presentation which are stored in seperate files into the version history and keep your library in this way nicely slim.
Do you mind this, the eternal search for a picture?
With SlideKick, you can create your own picture and icon galleries with just a few clicks. Assign keywords to your images and icons to retrieve them from the search. Doub-click on the icon to add it to your slide. Would you have thought it was so easy?
Share the galleries with your peers on the network and they can also retrieve your images using the keywords.
