How do I run an event with Power Point slides? Jon June 28, 2014 12:23 Have more questions? Submit a request Comments Jon Delete Edit June 15, 2011 21:24 Once you've created your Power Point or Keynote Presentation, save or export it as a PDF file. From your Instant Teleseminar members' area, click on My Slides, then Upload a New Presentation: Browse to find the file you wish to upload and give it a name: Once the presentation has been uploaded, it is ready to use during an event. To show slides during an event, be sure to set the publishing method to "Modern" and make sure the check box "Will this event use slides?" under the modern event settings is set to yes: As your event is about to go live, click on the Control Panel and then go to the Slides tab inside the control panel. Note that you CANNOT show slides from the My Slides area in the vertical menu on the left. Slides are only controlled for a live presentation from the Control Panel using the horizontal menu at the top of the page. Choose the slide deck you wish to show for this presentation: Navigate using the menu on the right or using the arrow keys on the bottom of the presentation screen: To see a preview of a slide, mouse over the slide number in the right menu. Only you see the preview until you click. Once you click, you are displaying it to your audience: To highlight specific things on your slide, mouse over the slide that's currently being displayed, and hold down the button on your mouse. Then drag your mouse across the area to be highlighted. To clear your highlights, click on the CLEAR button: You can change presentations during the event by clicking on the Change Presentation button. You can show slides from as many presentations as you like, and the system will still record the entire slide show as a single presentation: The popup version of the slides manager opens a new browser window. Use the popup slide controls to manage slides, and your main browser window for everything else: You can give the URL of the popup slide manager to your co-host. That way they can control slides without having to login to your account: Special Note on Making Recordings with Slides During a live event, navigate to the Slides tab, click on your presentation, and display the first slide. When you are ready to record, click on the Recordings tab and then click Start Recording. Then navigate back to the slides tab to continue through your presentation. NOTE: IF YOU START YOUR RECORDING BEFORE SHOWING YOUR FIRST SLIDE, THE RECORDING WILL BE "STUCK" ON THE FIRST SLIDE IN THE DECK. This is a known issue we are working on fixing, but for now you've got to do it this way.

The pop up version allows me to look at Q&A or the control panel at the same time I am viewing the slides. Diltckd3V8 Delete Edit April 08, 2014 23:46 great info thanks. Robin Treasure Delete Edit April 13, 2014 06:40 I love being able to show slides on this system - it works great. But I'm wondering if there's a way to have presenter notes accompanying the slides that only I can see (just as you can do directly in a PowerPoint presentation). I know I could just have written notes in front of me, but it would make it more seamless to have my notes right on the same screen as each slide. Please let me know. Thanks.
