Brightspot Content Types Guide


This topic explains how to add a presentation to Brightspot. Presentations are effective for making annual reports available for distribution to employees, or to share slides from past webinars. These are just examples, and your use cases for presentations may vary greatly.

You can add the following file types of presentations:

  • .key
  • .pptx
  • .potx
  • .odp
Before beginning these steps, make sure you save the presentation on the drive you are working from, or obtain its URL from the internet.

To add a presentation:

  1. In the header, click add.
  2. From the Create list, select Presentation.
  3. Using the following table as a reference, complete the fields as needed.
  4. Complete your site's workflow and publish the presentation.

After you publish your presentation, you can use it in assets such as pages and sections. You can also add presentations to text you compose in the rich-text editor.
