Slide Library for Teams
The Slide Library lets you save galleries of slides and shapes for easy reuse. The Slide Library feature works for individuals or teams - the difference is that you are either creating and accessing Personal or Corporate Galleries. If you're missing the SharePoint Slide Library after Microsoft decommissioned it, this feature is for you! Teams can host common Corporate Galleries of shapes and slides on a company share drive (for example MS Teams or Dropbox). All team members can then access the shapes and slides for reuse from within the Slide Library. 2000+ commonly used shapes and layouts can also be downloaded from PPTProductivity including flags, maps, organizational charts and more.
Updating Corporate Gallery master files
When you add shapes or slides from within the Gallery toolbar to a Corporate Gallery, changes are only made to your local version of the gallery. These changes will not be replicated back to the master to ensure team members do not unintentionally change shared galleries. Updating Corporate gallery master files is done via a different method but it is very straightforward. Each gallery is saved as a standard PowerPoint presentation (for example corporategallery.pptx). To update the central file, you access and make changes to the source .pptx file.
To update a Corporate Gallery you simply open the .pptx gallery file from its location, make the required changes, and Save. If you update a local instance of the document, remember to upload your changed version back to the central location.
To add one or more slides to an existing gallery, open the file from C:\Users\Public\Documents\PPT Productivity\YOURGALLERYNAME\corporategallery.pptx
Make required changes to the file and Save. You will be prompted to enter the new Gallery information for each new slide.
To delete a gallery item, just delete the slide as you normally would.
To change the gallery item name of an existing slide, close the presentation and edit it from the side Gallery toolbar by right-clicking on the gallery item and pressing Rename.
When adding a new slide, avoid using "Duplicate Slide" as you won't be prompted for the new slide information. Instead select "insert new slide" and copy any existing shapes or add new shapes
