End Slide Version Control Anxiety with PowerPoint Automation

May 26, 2020 | Feature, Getting started, Investment Management

In any industry, keeping slides up to date is essential. In financial services, it is especially critical to maintain SEC compliance, which can be tedious when you have multiple people creating presentations and working on PowerPoint decks. TeamSlide recognizes this compliance struggle and offers a solution: automated PowerPoint version control. Updating performance numbers and managing version control doesn’t have to be a headache.

PowerPoint automation: How TeamSlide solves version control concerns

We know how vital version control is, so we’ve made it easy for you. When you open a PowerPoint presentation, TeamSlide checks your slides against the slide repository for changes.

TeamSlide will automatically alert you if it finds that a newer version of the slide is available.

If your slide does need to be updated, simply choose from a handful of options.

version control update options
  • Update: With a click, your slide will be updated to the latest version
  • Insert copy: If you’re skeptical over the changes made and want to compare slides, insert a copy
  • Remove TeamSlide link: Disassociates the slide with the library; you will no longer receive notifications about updates
  • Mark as updated: Let’s you skip the current version; you won’t get a notice until a newer version is available

TeamSlide will also alert you if you’ve edited a slide that is not updated to the latest version

You can then insert a copy and determine if any local edits you made need to be carried over. For example, if you add a client name to the slide, you will want to ensure the name is also added in the updated version.
