HotspotHotspot is a "button" on top of the page (slide). Hotspots act as links that are linked to outside external link or page within the presentation.

Share iconThe icon on the left toolbar and dashboard. Read about sharing presentation here.
Print/PDFThe presentation can be converted into PDF or printed. Both happen under print tab under presentation sharing. Read about printing and converting to PDF here.


Smart slides

Smart slideSmart slides help to keep up the presentations of the organisation. One smart slide can be used in multiple presentation at the same time. Once you edit a smart slide, all the changes happen in real time in all of the corresponding slides in the team. Only the content of the slide is linked, not the structure of the presentation.

Hotspots will be copied with the smart slide, and if the presentation where the smart slide was used has also the pages where the internal links were created, then the linking works. If the target slide is missing, than the linking will not work. External links work normally.

Hotspots can be edited separately after the slide has been copied and pasted somewhere because they are not linked to the slide.

Read more about smart slides here.
Smart slide collectionCan be accessed from the dashboard by pressing the smart slide icon on the top toolbar. You can see all the smart slides the team has created. You can also merge, delete and create new smart slides here. 
Make smart slideYou can convert a regular slide you have created from any presentation to smart slide by pressing the small dots on top right of the thumbnail if you move your mouse over. Once the smart slide has been created it can be used in any presentation. If you have converted multiple slides from normal slides to smart slides, it is suggested that all the similar slides are merged into one smart slide.
Detach smart slideDetach the slide from the smart slide. After the slide has been detached it can be edited without other slides changing. To detach the slide, move your mouse over the slide you want to detach in slide bank and press the small dots on top right corner. Choose from the list "Detach from the smart slide".
Merge / merging smart slidesYou can merge multiple smart slides into one smart slide. Merge similar pages to make managing of the smarts more easier. You can see the thumbnails of the slides you are merging. Make sure you are not merging slides that are not supposed to be merged as this cannot be undone.
