TeamSlide search

When you run a search, TeamSlide processes your request and identifies all of the content that best matches your search terms based on its full-text index. It searches all text, notes, and configured metadata on your sildes. TeamSlide ranks these search results by relevance to best match what you are looking for.

TeamSlide PowerPoint search

(1) Browse content

Setting up properties in TeamSlide allows you to add metadata to your PowerPoint slides, images, and video content. If you already have metadata in your content management system (CMS), such as SharePoint or Box, TeamSlide can import and keep them synced. After configuring these properties, you’ll be able to use them to filter search results and/or browse content.

See some typical ‘Browse by’ examples below:

Example 1: Browse by tags
Browse your content based on tags assigned to them:

Browse by tags with TeamSlide

Example 2: Browse by industry
While you can set up any property, our customers commonly use a list of industries.

Browse by industry with TeamSlide

Within the browse by view, you’ll notice two icons on the right side. These icons give you the ability to (A) Sort alphabetically and (B) Sort by number of elements.

(2) Filter results

After searching in the TeamSlide pane, you’ll notice a ‘Filter’ option appear. Click on ‘Filter’ to view additional filtering options. You can select properties to filter by (i.e., tags, types, date modified).

(3) See details/view information

After searching in the TeamSlide pane, hover over a search result until the ‘i’ icon appears.

Click the ‘i’ to view additional information about the content, such as metadata and a larger preview. In the information view, you’ll have options to insert the slide (with or without original master), mark the slide as a favorite, attach the slide to an email, and view even more details. In the new UI, the information view overlays on top of the search result for easier focus (as opposed to inline with the search results).

(4) Access features

Our features are now cleanly tucked away in the hamburger menu, leaving them easily accessible throughout searches. Click the hamburger menu to view a list of options:

Version control is not available for Mac users. It is greyed out in the menu options

(7) Responsive design

TeamSlide’s new design is responsive and adjusts to the pane width. By expanding the TeamSlide pane within PowerPoint, the slides shown in the search results automatically rearrange to fit in the pane. Further, the design of different functions, including filtering and browsing, shifts to maximize the available space.

For example, when the ‘Filter’ is open, expand the pane to see a 2-column format with the filter options to the left of the search results.
