What to take into consideration when creating a new presentation?

Plan ahead to make your process of creating a new presentation easier.

There are three ways to create presentations in Seidat.

  1. Starting from scratch. Press "New presentation" from the dashboard. You can sketch the presentation with blank slides or bring slides by using slide bank.
  2. Import your existing PowerPoint directly to Seidat. This can be a quick way to utilize your ready material. If you have already created improved presentations to Seidat it might be best to just copy-paste content to the new slides.
  3. Copying an existing presentation and modifying it to fit the need.

The first and second options are good when you are starting to use Seidat or you have to create something entirely new. However, the most effective way to create a presentation is to utilize older presentations and modifying them to best fit the need.

Creating a new presentation for a new need

  • First define the core use for the presentation, who will be the audience, and what sort of situations the presentation will be used.
  • Once the use case is determined, the rough structure is usually good to set early to help the presentation to take place although it can be modified at any stage.
  • Decide if you want to create a presentation that is informative without a presenter. Presentations that work independently usually have more informative value (more text).

User access levels

Once the presentation is done it is good to think about presentation access levels to reduce the risk of anyone messing the presentation up.

  • Add all the people who need to edit the presentation as editors and all the people who need to share the presentation as sharers and so on.
  • Restrict the presentation max. access level to correspond to the need.

If you want to edit the presentation in peace set the maximum team access to "No access (Hidden)" at the start of the process.
