Understanding Version Control

When you open a PowerPoint presentation, TeamSlide checks your slides against the slide repository for changes.

TeamSlide syncs with your content management system (i.e. SharePoint, OneDrive, Box, etc) every hour to look for updated content. If TeamSlide finds updates, then you’ll be automatically notified and given the option to update to the latest version.

TeamSlide will automatically alert you if it finds that a newer version of the slide is available.

When a presentation is opened that has one or more out-of-date slides, a version control window will automatically open in the TeamSlide pane. The version control window will indicate the slide number(s) that is out of date, give a description, and will allow you to determine the best course of action.

Note: You can always access the version control window by opening the hamburger menu on the top right section of the pane.

TeamSlide version control overview

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

Click the dropdown arrow to view additional options.

TeamSlide version control 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TeamSlide will also alert you if you’ve locally edited a slide that has now become out-of-date

Note: Changes you make in your content management system are automatically reflected in TeamSlide. Not the other way around.

TeamSlide modification alert

You’ll receive a warning that the changes you made will likely be lost when updating to the newest from your library/content management system. In this case, you may want to first insert a copy of the new up-to-date slide.

Note that TeamSlide only checks slides that were inserted using TeamSlide or subsequently copied. Slides that were never originally inserted using TeamSlide will not be checked for version control.
