  • Complete renewing of Seidat

    Today we have published a new user interface, which will push Seidat to the next level. We have fixed great amount of bugs and created numerous new features, that will help you to create, present and share better presentations. Even old presentations will work much smoother.

    The new UI is easy to learn for old users, because the way of use hasn’t changed. The biggest change has been on the dashboard – now everything is much simpler and easier.
    The most important features shortly

    New login address is http://app.seidat.com. The old user interface can be found from http://seidat.com.

    • Dashboard – Visual layout has changed and now you can navigate directly to important settings to manage your teams and presentations. 
    • Images, texts and all other elements can be placed partially outside the content area. This will let you crop or align elements to the edge of the screen.

    Common changes

    • Login address with new interface is http://app.seidat.com, the old login address http://seidat.com will be directed to the website. Old user interface can be used by login at http://seidat.com
    • Login view has been updated. All features are the same as in earlier versions. 
    • Icons have tooltips, which can be found when you move your cursor over the icon.

    • You can use Clear Formatting-button to clear all text styles.
    • Any text (and there can be several links inside the text element) can be linked to external websites.
    • Text can be indented by tab-button
