Boards feature

What are boards?

Boards allow organizations to separate their content into separate tabs or boards in the TeamSlide add-in. This provides distinct spaces to access content that may serve different purposes. Further, we can implement different interfaces that are specific for the type of content used in the board (e.g., blank templates versus data slides).  Boards are configurable and can be tailored your content searching needs.

TeamSlide Boards overview

Difference between libraries and boards

A library is a container for content (slides, images, videos) that primarily defines its access rights. Libraries can be mapped to Replication Tasks which are tied to folders in connected content systems. Additionally, a library can be used in TeamSlide to filter search results and modify search relevancy.

Boards are used to separate the content contained in libraries into separate tabs (or boards) in the PowerPoint add-in. Boards provide a distinct space to access specific content. For example, if you want to create a “Sales assets” Board, you could connect your sales library to this Board. TeamSlide users can then select this Board to access the sales content separately. Multiple libraries can be tied to a board and a library can be tied to several boards.

 

Types of boards

To help better access different types of content, there are currently 3 types of boards available in TeamSlide – Regular, Templates, and External images.

Regular

Regular boards use a search-focused interface best suited for slides with usable content.  Users can search, filter, and even browse for content. Using regular boards, admins can limit searches to specific library content. For example, when running a search in the “Sales assets” board below, users will only see results from connected libraries. In this case, a user would only see search results originating in the “Sales” library.

Templates

Templates boards provide an easy way to organize template slides into customizable categories (e.g., Agendas, Charts, Concepts) and sub-categories. This provides a browse-friendly way to find template assets that have less content on each slide.  In addition to categorizing your slides, you can define the icon for each category too.
