Created a great slide deck and want to save the entire PowerPoint presentation to your PowerPoint 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.
