If you use PowerPoint, you know that sometimes reusing content from another PowerPoint presentation can save you a lot of time. PowerPoint 2007 works in conjunction with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, which lets people connect to documents, calendars, contacts, or tasks across a network. If your organization uses Office SharePoint Server 2007, you will be happy to know that you can take advantage of PowerPoint Slide Libraries.
Slide Libraries let users store slides in a central, shared location so that anyone on the network can share and reuse the information. Each time an existing slide changes in the library, SharePoint Server 2007 places a timestamp on it and checks the file out to the user-timestamping and checking it back in when the user is finished with the file. The library also has features to help you locate the latest version of a slide, as well as track and review changes to slides. A Slide Library must be established on Office SharePoint Server 2007 before any slides can be published to the library-your network administrator can do that for you.
You must save your presentation to your hard disk before you can publish it to a Slide Library
To publish slides to a Slide Library, follow these steps:
Click the Microsoft Office Button.
Point to Publish, and then click Publish Slides.
Select the slides you want to publish to the library in the Publish Slides dialog box. You can select all the slides by clicking the Select All button.
Type a name in the File Name box.
Type or select the location of the Slide Library in the Publish To list.
