Creating A Slide Deck Presentation

As a presenter, you have the option to create one of a number of different presentation types – this guide will cover creating a slide deck presentation.

Inserting your Slide Deck

To insert your presentation into your Glisser dashboard from the Sessions tab, select the Add Session button located at the top right-hand section of the dashboard, and click on Interactive Slide Sharing.

Once your new presentation has opened, click on Add Content and select Import Slides. From here you’re able to upload your slide deck to your presentation, in either PPT, PPTX, or PDF format. We would recommend that your presentation has a ratio of 16:9. You can find more information on file types here.

Adding Polls

You’re now ready to insert polls into your Glisser presentation. Simply click Add Content and then select the poll type you want to add. Each poll you create appears like a slide that you can move around your slide deck. See here for more information on Polling.

Your Unique URL

As Glisser is a web-based solution, all attendees have to do to access your presentation is type in your presentation’s unique URL into their browser. We recommend this to be as short and snappy as possible as it limits the likelihood of human error by your audience when typing the unique URL in.

There is a 20 character limit for your Audience URL.

Your Internal Reference

This is not visible by attendees and helps you to identify the particular session. The identifier will also be displayed in your analytics.

Session Details

By providing an attendee estimation, we can understand any additional support or requirements that you may need.

Please see our personalise your presentation or event article for further information.

Making your Slide Deck Interactive

From the right-hand sidebar, you’re able to customize your slide deck with interactive features such as Audience Q&A, Q&A Moderation, Likes, Download Slides, and Audience Notes. A general rule of thumb at Glisser is orange enables, grey disables.

Personalising your Presentation

Depending on your license, you’re able to personalise your presentation. To do this, simply select the presentation you’ve uploaded and click on the Personalisation drop-down tab on the right-hand side of your Glisser dashboard. From here, you’re able to match your company’s accent color – select a light or dark theme, select either pastel or bright poll color scheme, and upload a background image to appear behind your polls and Q&A feed on the main screen.

Please note: Images uploaded must be stored with a lowercase .jpg or .png. Images stored with capitalized .JPG or .PNG can not be uploaded.

Ensuring your Slide Deck is Secure

Once your slide deck is personalized to your liking, you’re able to adjust your Data Security options, and which credentials your audience needs to access your presentation, for example:

  • ID Capture = Off: Attendees can access your presentation and interact using just the presentation link.
  • ID Capture = Email Capture: Attendees must enter their email address to access your presentation and be able to interact.
  • ID Capture = Verified Email: Attendees must verify their email before being able to access the presentation. 
  • ID Capture = Unique ID: Attendees have to enter an ID that you set, for example, this could be a Student ID or another unique ID number.
  • ID Capture = Social: Attendees can sign up using their Google or LinkedIn account for example.

As an additional level of security, you can also set up PIN Protection. You can reveal this password on the day to your attendees to make sure no one else can access your content.

Glisser also has an Entry List feature. You can add email addresses to this list, or allow Domains to access the presentation. For example, you could add a list of email addresses that have signed up, or if I wanted everybody from my company to be able to access, I could add “glisser.com” to the allowed Domains list. 

Finally, you’re also able to ensure you’re gathering data in a GDPR compliant manner during your presentation by switching Audience Consent on. Your GDPR terms and settings are completely customizable.

Socially Amplify your Presentation

If you want to create more buzz during and after your presentation, you can turn our Twitter feature on. Through this, any tweets with your chosen hashtag will show up within a Social Media tab in the presentation. Simply go to Settings and in the Social tab, provide the hashtag you want to associate with your presentation.


You are able to add an image or video to the waiting room of the presentation. To give some examples, this could be a video from a Sponsor, an information video, or supporting information for your presentation. 

Images must be under 2MB in size, while videos can be embedded using a URL from YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia or Microsoft Stream.
