If you have presentations already listed on Speaker Deck and want to bring them into Notist, so that you can display them alongside other information for that talk, this article explains how to do so.
Importing the slide decks
You need your Speaker Deck username to get started. Then head to your account on Notist, and go to Edit Presentations. Click the Imported navigation item, and select to import from Speaker Deck.
Pop your Speaker Deck username into the field, and your import will be queued.
The process shouldn't take too long, however we want to be respectful of third party servers and so at busy times it may take a little while. Once the process is complete you will find a list of the presentations that we found, under the Imported navigation item.
If the process takes hours, then please raise a support ticket and we'll investigate what is happening for you!
Linking a deck to a presentation
Speaker Deck only shows slide decks, it doesn't have the information about the event or talk that we have on Notist. Once your decks are imported you will have a little work to do to link them up with an existing talk, or create a new talk to attach them to.
Click on the name of any deck, on the next screen you will be able to choose what to do with it.
If you choose to create a new presentation, you will end up in the usual process to create a new talk, with potentially a new event.
If you have presentations already created which do not have a slide deck listed, then select add this deck to an existing presentation. A list of talks with no slides will appear and you can choose the appropriate talk. As we then already have the information for the talk we can go straight into processing the slides.
If you don't want to list these slides, or they are a duplicate of some you already added before the import was available, then choose I don't need this. Throw it away, and we will get rid of it from your list.
Any problems during the process, then raise a ticket in support and we'll help you out.
