Installing Slide Publisher

Slide Publisher uses the following components:

  • Clarizen app: Slide Publisher can be installed by an admin from the Clarizen App Marketplace. This app includes a custom action that is enabled on the project level, and is used to publish the presentation using the template and Clarizen data.
  • MS PowerPoint "Template Wizard" Add-On allows you to add placeholder tags to your template that are later replaced with real-time data from your Clarizen account.
    Install the add-on for free from the MS store or by manually downloading this Manifest XML file to your local PC and installing in MS.

To install from the MS Office Store: 

  1. In the PowerPoint application, open the Insert tab on the ribbon. Go to Office Add-ins Store. This step may differ slightly depending on your version of MS PowerPoint.
  2. Search for Clarizen Slide Publisher. Click Add.
  3. This will add a new button to your Insert tab.


To install manually:

Download this file: Manifest XML file. Choose Save As or Save Link As to your computer.

To upload to my organization, select one of the links below: 

  1. Go to Insert > Office Add-ins > My Organization.
  2. Click Upload My Add-in. Select the file and click Upload.
    This will add a new button to your Insert ribbon.

    Is Microsoft Office 2010 supported and are there any specific instructions available for installing the add on for the 2010 version.
