New presentation embed options
Category: Announcements, Articles, Development | No Comments »

Many of the SlideBoom users have been concerned about the privacy of their slideshows. So it is now particularly pleasing to announce new presentation embed options added to ‘Pro’ account and that are great for privacy limitations.

If you want your presentation only at specific domains, you now have the right feature for that:

“Allow embedding this presentation to trusted domains only” and “Allow embedding this presentation to the following domains only”:

more-embed-options

Say you only want your embedded presentation viewed at your webpage, but not embedded elsewhere. Then all you do is enter your webpage domain and that’s it! As it will be the only domain specified, all the others will be disabled for embedding this particular presentation.

You are additionally offered to create a trusted domains list and apply it for multiple slideshows:

trusted-domains

This feature solves the problem of your presentation privacy. Thus it certainly adds up to the pros of the ‘Pro’ account.

SlideBoom offers you a new option that limits an access to your presentation.
All you need to do is to share a secret link with potential viewers of your creation.
To generate this link check “Give me a secret url” and press “Save” button in editing window:

Copy the url code and send it out to whoever you want to show you presentation to. It’s that easy!

Important! Make sure “I want my presentation to be available to anyone online” option is not ticked in the same editing window. It disables a secret url code creating, and your presentation will be public.
