Save presentation to Slide Library

Created a great slide deck and want to save the entire PowerPoint presentation to your Slide Library for easy reuse? Rather than saving slides individually, use the import capability to bulk import all slides/shapes from a presentation.
Open the PowerPoint presentation you want to import. From the Slide Library toolbar "Actions..." menu, click "Save current presentation as a new library..."
The name will by default be the name of the presentation, or the title of the first slide if the presentation has not been saved (you can change the name at any point by editing the relevant Library folder name in C:\Users\Public\Documents\PPT Productivity).
You will be prompted for a name and thumbnail to represent each slide. By default, the name will prepopulate with text from the slide in the following order: Any text in the Notes field, any text found in the slide Title, any text found in a shape on the slide (in the order added to the slide).
Next, select whether to save as Shapes or as a Slide, and select the preferred thumbnail from the options displayed. Repeat for each slide.Productivity Tip
To bulk import all slides using prepopulated text and default thumbnail type, tick "Bulk import remaining" option. This will bulk save all Shapes/ Slides without a prompt. This works best if you first nominate a slide/ shape name in the presenter notes of each slide, or (if that is missing) the slide title. If a slide is found without any text to use as a name, it will pause and prompt you to enter a name before continuing the bulk import.
