Presentation Overview


With presentations, collaborators can create and edit slideshows. Google provides different themes to choose from before creating a presentation and a variety of tools to edit texts and insert media. 

Presentation Toolbar


 New Slide Adds a new slide to the presentation. Clicking on the arrow provides   options for types of slides


Undo Reverts to the last action you made

Communicating with Presentations


When multiple collaborators are present in the document, click on the chat-(1).jpg button on the top right to chat about your work. The chat box will appear at the bottom right of the presentation. Click on the settings.jpg button to edit notification settings.



Clicking on the comment.jpg button inserts a comment on the slide. Collaborators can respond, edit, and resolve comments.

Send Email

Another way to communicate to collaborators, though not directly on the document, is to send them an email. Do this by going to File > Email Collaborators. This is a convienent way to send reminders to collaborators who do not check the presentation often.
