How to create a presentation

Use Showell App to create tailored presentations from content already in your account. With Presentation Creator you can customize each presentation to cater to the specific needs of each customer.

💡Why create a presentation with Showell?
To meet the unique requirements particular customers may have - it's not always the most optimal to show existing documents as a whole. Instead, Presentation Creator allows you to create tailored presentations to exactly match your customers' different needs and demands!

🔔How to ...



☝️Tips:

  • Showell offers a build in Presentation Creator that help you to gather the most relevant materials (documents, individual pages, images, videos,...) to create a unique presentation, tailored to your customers!
  • Showell presentations are always up-to-date!
    When you create a presentation in Showell, it uses the original files to showcase the presentation. In other words; It does not copy the original files and so it does not create a stand-alone presentation.
    • This gives the benefit that when the original file is updated within Showell, it will automatically update the corresponding slide(s) in the presentation!
    • When the original file is removed within Showell, it will automatically remove the corresponding slide(s) from the presentation and provide a message that the file or document could not be found.
  • If you don't want your presentation to be updated or you want to protected it from files being removed, you can save the presentation as a PDF. By doing this you create a stand-alone presentation.


💡Note:
Presentation Creator is not available on mobile devices (phones). However you can still create presentations by 'selecting files'.
