For Google Slides, you can simply use the iframe macro and link to the slideshow link of the presentation.

So if the PP deck is available in the cloud (or you convert PP to G-slides) it could work.

Thank you, Kristian.  I am attaching the current view from Google docs.  How do I modify the view so that the frame is bigger, you can see the slides, and remove the header so that it doesn't appear as if it is from Google docs?ContentManagementUpdateSlideshowView.jpg

OK, so first you need a slideshow link.

  1. In Google Slides, click File > Share > Publish to web
  2. Copy the link: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/e/REALLYLONGIDOF YOURPRESENTATION/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000

Then in Confluence:

  1. Insert an iframe macro to Confluence page.
  2. Configure the macro:
    • URL: paste the one you got from Google Slides
    • Width - 100%
    • Height - whatever looks good on page, standard res on an embed links is 569px but since you have dynamic width setting, it is not that important.
    • Align Middle (or whatever works for you)
    • Frame - optional
    • Scrolling Yes
    • Allow full screen
  3. Save the page

Your iframed slideshow should look like this (minus the dogs :) )

Thanks for the instruction.  Seems easy enough, except I received a failure to load message from Google docs.  How do I resolve?

The google doc must be available for sharing. If it's not completely public but share within your org, you may be prompted to enter your credentials. Having said that, if the Confluence and Google Doc use the same SSO scheme, it should you log you in automatically (depending on the SSO setup).

Also, some Google services have been experiencing outages...

@Angelique Kim unless I'm missing something, the base Confluence has a built in Macro that you can use to show the Power Point, but currently it wouldn't be in slideshow form, you have to scroll through it.  Either click on the + in the header or type a / on your page and choose 'Office Powerpoint'

Hope that helps.

Thank you.  Is there a way to make the thumbnail larger and center it on the screen?
