Presentation Management

Parent-Child Updates

Why propagate parent updates into child decks?

  • Version Control (accepting/rejecting parent changes in child decks) is key to Presentation Management.
  • With version control, you can maintain downstream consistency with corporate changes such as
    • Product information
    • Compliance text
    • Branding and styling

Why reject changes?

  • You may want to manually make updates to branding, if, for example, font changes cause issues with text fitting on the slide.
  • The parent updates might not be relevant to you.
  • Parent updates might have been made in error.


  • If the parent of one of your decks has been edited, an orange circle with an exclamation point will appear next to the name of the deck.

  • Click on the name to review and accept or reject the parent changes.
