Schedule Databeat PowerPoint Publisher


Choose how long you want each slide to be displayed and determine whether you prefer it to be uploaded as a video or an image. 

Duration of files

The duration of a slide is by default 10 seconds, and this affects each individual slide. For video playback, consider this example: if you add two slides and choose to upload a video, the total video length will be 20 seconds.

With the use of the "Transitions"-tab in PowerPoint you can change the duration of a video by changing from "On mouse click" to a defined value. 

Press "Publish" to upload your PowerPoint slides. A system message will inform you about the uploading process in the bottom left corner. Do not exit the application before the process is completed.
