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:
- 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.
- Search for Clarizen Slide Publisher. Click Add.
- This will add a new button to your Insert tab.
