Merging multiple PowerPoint documents into one

With JungleDocs you can easily merge multiple PowerPoint files into one. The process is very similar to Word document merging using Small Parts with JungleDocs. In this tutorial, you will learn how to do this.

There are three steps you will have to go through. They are as follows:

  1. Create a PowerPoint Small Parts Library
  2. Configure your PowerPoint Template
  3. Configure your JungleDocs rule

1. Create a PowerPoint Small Parts Library

1. First, create a library for your PowerPoint Small Parts.

2. Now create folders in this library and copy the slides into the folders according to the topic . We recommend creating one PowerPoint slide per file.   

2. Configure your PowerPoint template

Now that you have created a PowerPoint Small Parts library it is time to move on to your PowerPoint template.

Modify the main PowerPoint document template to point to the Small Parts folders. To do this, enter Small Part: FolderName into the slide you are creating and reference to a particular Small Part slides folder. 

For  example:  Small Part: Introduction

Note: unlike in Word, there are no content controls in PowerPoint. So you simply write the text in a slide. Use one slide per one Small Part Folder. 

Note: you should only use  Title text box (Click to add title) in the PowerPoint template for your Small Parts configuration:

3. Configure your JungleDocs rule

Now that you have configured your PowerPoint template you can move onto working on the JungleDocs rule.

1. Create a library for storage of the generated presentations, add the Content type with the configured template and required columns.

2. In  this  library, launch JungleDocs from the ribbon. In the New  tab you will automatically see all rules based on the library content types.

3. Click on the arrow down to edit the base rule. In this  example  it is "Presentation".

4. Provide a location for Small Parts. Click Browse to navigate to the correct library:

5. Edit other rule settings if needed. Once the Small Parts library is defined the JungleDocs rule icon will say so.

6. You can also decide to create a new base rule with different settings for another template.

7. You are all set to go now. You can start assembling your presentations by clicking on the JungleDocs rule you’ve just created or edited. Once everything is done you should see something similar to the image below:

Note: in the Content type template you can have one slide pointing to one Small Part folder in your Small Parts library. You will be able to include tens of documents from that folder by clicking the checkboxes. You can insert 5 slides or 25, simply by using the same setup and templates.
