How to use web content to display a specific PowerPoint slide on your board

Here are the steps to use the Web Content element to display a specific PowerPoint slide:

  1. In PowerPoint Online, share your document (File > Share > Embed)
  2. In the preview panel, select the desired slide
  3. Click on the icon on the bottom right of this panel ("Open in New Window")
  4. In the opened tab, get the slideID parameter
  5. Copy the iFrame code, paste it in a text editor (notepad for instance). Then, at the end of the src attribute, add the following text: "&wdSlideId=[THE_SLIDE_ID]";

 

Now, get the whole text, add a new Web Content element, put the text in it and enjoy!
