Slide Updating

Shufflrr distributes updated slides, so you don’t have to worry about outdated, wrong slides creeping back into presentations. Anyone who has write permissions to a folder can update/overwrite a presentation, and then distribute the updated content to end-users personal presentations (i.e .child presentations that were created using slides from the overwritten presentation). Updates can be forced or you can let the end-user decide whether or not he wants the updated content. And you get a side by side, slide by slide, comparison and recap of the old version versus the new version. You have control over the updated content throughout the process.

Before we get to the step by step instructions, here are a couple of things to note:

Parent and Child Presentations – For the purposes of slide updating, a parent slide and/or presentation is any original or master presentation from which a sub or child presentation has been created. It doesn’t matter to where in the Shufflrr that file was uploaded (i.e. Global Presentations, My Presentations, etc.). It can be anywhere. A child slide and/or presentation is any presentation created with in the Shufflrr, from presentations and/or slides that have already been uploaded into the Shufflrr.

Slide Titles are the basis for comparison – Slides are identified by their title, i.e. Click to add title. When Shufflrr sees a slide with the same title, in the same file name, in the same folder, it will trigger the comparison, and look to see what changes have been made.

Archiving – Don’t worry, if all else fails, you can always roll back to an earlier version of the presentation.

Updating Parent Presentations: Distributing Updates

Anyone who has write permissions to a folder can overwrite a parent presentation. If you can upload to a folder, you can overwrite a file, and therefore, distribute updated slides to all child presentations.

  1. To overwrite a file, upload a file with the exact same file name, into the same folder (just like you would on your network). Shufflrr will look to the slide titles, and then look to the content on the slide, comparing the old content to the new content. When it sees different content, it will note that the slide has “changed.”

    An updated presentation will be identified by an orange circle with an exclamation point next to the file name. In the example (shown to the right) the files, Seasons.pptx and Texas.pptx have changes. Clicking on one of these files will initiate the overwrite process, and force a side by side comparison of old, new and removed slides.

    Clicking on a file with the overwrite alert next to it, to begin the overwrite process.

  2. A side by side, or slide by slide, comparison window will open, identifying which slides have changed, stayed the same, been removed or added, when compared to the original file. Again, Shufflrr will look to the slide titles to identify the slides, and begin the comparison process.

  3. Recap

    At the top of the screen, you will see a recap of the old versus new file, noting the presentations properties, such as number of slides, size of file, author and date created. The types of changes are color coded. Yellow denotes slides with content changes, green denotes new slides, blue is for unchanged slides, and red is for removed (i.e. deleted slides).

    The recap also allows you to zoom into a specific set of slides, for example the changed slides or the added slides, without having to scroll through the entire presentation. And you can even zoom into individual slides, by selecting the slide number.

  4. Ignore or Accept Changes

    You can approve or ignore all changes in one step, without going reviewing the slides individually, by clicking Ignore All or Accept All buttons at the bottom right of the recap.

  5. Slide by Slide Comparison

    To review the specific slide changes, and Accept or Ignore them individually, simply scroll down and go through each slide. Each type of change is color coded and noted.

    • a) Changed Slides – Shufflrr identifies text changes, within text boxes, speaker notes and charts. It does not currently recognize image and video changes. But you can implement those by manually Accepting those slides with the changes.

    Enlarge thumbnail by hovering over it with your mouse.

    Review hard copy, content changes by hovering over the type of change arrow in the middle.

    • b) Removed Slides – Removed slides are identified, but you cannot accept or ignore the change within Shufflrr. If you accidentally removed/deleted a slide from your updated presentation and want to reverse it. You have three options.

      • Change the file on your local computer. The, re-upload.
      • Download the original file from Shufflrr. Edit your changes, and then re-upload.
      • Use the Archive/History feature to roll back to an earlier version
    • c) Added Slides – New slides will appear in the parent presentation, but will not, cannot, be pushed out to child presentations, as they do not exist in child presentations. In that case of Added Slides, there is nothing to update.

    • d) Unchanged Slides – That’s easy. There are no changes, so there is no action to take.

    • e) Accept or Ignore Change – After you have reviewed a slide, choose the Accept or Ignore button to the right of the updated slide. A check mark will appear, and the corresponding slide number will also have a check mark

  6. Submit

    • a) When you have reviewed all of your slides, and have accepted or rejected/ignored slide changes, click Submit which will start the process of distributing the changes out to child presentations.
    • b) Choose Automatic or Manual Updates.

    Automatic updates – Force the changes into child presentations. The end-user is notified of the change via email. When he logs into Shufflrr, the updated presentation will be ready for us.

    Manual updates – Allow the user to review the side by side, slide by slide, comparison described in the previous steps 5 and 6, and choose whether or not he wants to take the updated slides, or leave his presentation in its original form.

    NOTE: If the end-user ignores the update, then the parent – child relationship is broken, and that slide will no longer receive updates when/if that parent receives another update in the future.

    Remove slides – The Save Slide Changes window prompts a the user to confirm whether or not he wants to remove/delete slides from child presentations. Deleting an entire slide, from someone else’s presentation, could prove problematic for that person. So, Shufflrr just asks a second time to be extra sure.

Presentation Builder

The Presentation Builder is a Wizard that groups slides according to subject matter, presents them in a hierarchy, and assembles them into a logical flow of information. For end users, it is a faster, easier to way create a new presentation. They just choose their topics and the rest is done automatically for them. For Administrators, i.e. marketers and compliance officers at the home office, it is a means ensure brand and message compliance.

A Presentation Builder is made up of (usually) short PowerPoint files. A Core deck, and supporting modules.

Foundation Presentation – Mandatory slides, required when presenting about a certain topic. The Core deck serves as the anchor for your builder.

Modules – Optional slides the end-user can select as he creates his presentation. They are put in an assigned position, in relation to the Core Deck.

Sub-Modules – Optional slides that the provided based on the end-user’s choice of Module. They are put in an assigned position, in relation to the Sub-Module.

The example below is a Presentation Builder on the topic of Dogs, where Dogs is the core deck, breeds of dogs serve as choices of Modules, and Lap Dogs serves as a sub-module to Shih Tzu.

Setting up a Presentation Builder - For Administrators

  1. Go to Admin > Builder

  2. Select Add New Builder

  3. Enter a descriptive name for your builder, so your end-users can readily identify it, eg: Cats and Dogs

  1. Optional: Looping Intro Video

    Give your end-users the option of including an opening video with their presentation. Click in the Looping Video browser window, and select a video file from any of the folders, files within your Shufflrr site.

    NOTE: All files must be uploaded to Shufflrr before you create your builder.

    If you don’t want to include a video, just skip this step.

  1. Optional: Title Slide & Data Fields

    End-users can customize a title slide for their presentation. Insert a formatted Title Slide.pptx in this field.

    Create your title slide in PowerPoint. Save a one slide PowerPoint file, e.g. Cats and Dogs Title.pptx, with the data fields as text in brackets. Each field is a separate text box. In this example, the Data Fields are: Title, Client and Date

    The Data Fields on the slide, must be identical to the Data Fields in Shufflrr.

    Upload Cats and Dogs Title.pptx to Shufflrr.

    Click in the Title Slide browser window, and insert your title Slide, e.g. Cats and Dogs Title.pptx

  2. Optional: Data Fields

    The data fields you input in Shufflrr, must match those on the PowerPoint slide exactly. The case and syntax must be the same, no spaces. To enter your data field, keyboard click comma “,”

    Notice how the Data Fields in Shufflrr’s builder match the Data Fields on the PowerPoint title slide created earlier.

  3. Assign Permissions: Determine which groups are individuals get access to a Presentation Builder. You can assign permissions by group and by individual users.

    Go to Permissions > Type in the name of the group or user. Press enter.

  4. Slide Limits: You can control the number of slides an end-user puts in his presentation. If he tries to go over the Slide Limit, the Presentation Builder will alert him with a message, pop-up window, and he will be prevented from doing so.

    Go to Slide Limits > Select Max Slides > Input your slide limit

  5. Save: (because it’s so easy to forget!).

    The Save button is on the lower, right hand side of your screen.

    We recommend Saving throughout the process.

Adding Content to a Presentation Builder

The content is classified into Foundation, Modules, Sub-Modules, Sub-Sub-Modules, Sub-Sub-Sub-Modules, etc. You can build as many levels down to infinity, if you’d like. We will continue to use our Cats and Dogs example, where Cats and Dogs serve as Foundation Presentations, and the modules follow.

  1. Foundation Presentation:

    The Foundation Presentation is the main, required information about a topic, and the modules are optional supporting information. To add a Foundation Presentation to a builder, go to:

    Foundation Presentation

  2. Supporting Presentation (Modules):

    The Supporting Presentation an optional, aka module or sub-topic, that expands upon the Foundation Presentation topic. Users can choose whether or not to include a supporting presentation.

    You can put a module under any file in the builder. Modules not limited to Foundation Presentations.

    • a) To add a module, choose the higher file, which is either the Foundation or another Module.
    • b) A window will drop down.

      • i) Browse for the module,
      • ii) and then position it within the higher presentation – in front of, at the end, or between two slides.
      • iii) Click Add Presentation to save the module and add it to the Presentation Builder
