What are inspiration slides?

Inspirations slides are “pre-made” designs to help you build better presentations faster. You can find them on the right side of the PowerPoint Add-In or on the Platform under 'Inspiration slides'.

You can find more than 4000 slides with diagrams, maps, charts, and more in your inspiration library. We have two formats: widescreen and 4:3.

Pro tip: Inspiration slides are great when you already have some bullet points or concepts, and you need them to look visually appealing.

How to search content within inspiration slides:

There are 2 main ways to find a slide that matches the content on your slide

Use categories and subcategories to browse

Click on 'All' or navigate through the list of categories on the left.

Once you select a category you can narrow your search by clicking on a subcategory.

If you wish to select multiple categories or subcategories at the same time, click on CTRL + the subcategories you wish (for Mac users click on 'option').

Search based on keywords in the search bar at the top e.g. roadmap or strategy

Go to Inspiration Slides and simply start typing any term you need.

SlideHub will show you first company slides that have been used before with that term. It will also show slides containing that term.

For this example, we used the word: "Marketing"
