The App uses the following components:

  1. From the Clarizen App: Slide Publisher can be installed by admin from 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.

    It can be installed for free from the MS store or by manually downloading this Manifest XML file to your local PC and installing in MS:

    2.1 From MS Office Store: 

    Directly from PowerPoint:

    Go to ‘Insert’ >> ‘Office Add-ins’ >> MS Store
    Select Clarizen Slide Publisher
    This will add a new button to your ‘Insert’ menu
