Specific slides from Google Slides

Hi, I was able to bring in a Google Slides document into a confluence Page using the Widget connector macro. My question is how do I tell it to be always on Slide No "x"? I have too many sliede in the google Slides doc from which I only want to show one on Confluence. 

Hope there is a way to do this. 

Thanks

This widget could not be displayed.

Hello Sumesh,

Since Confluence doesn't modify the way that the Google Slides are displayed, my recommendation would be to make a copy of the document, and ensure that you only include the slides you want to be displayed in your Confluence page. This way, the slide you want users to see first will be displayed first, provided you ensure it's the first one listed in the document.

Let us know if you have any questions about this!

Kind Regards,

Shannon

Hi Shannon, 

Thanks for the suggestion. I had this idea at the back of my head but dont think this will help us too much. The google dooc I am trying to bring in is a bible containing workflow diagrams for multiple departments on each slide. The idea was to have individual confluence page for each department and display only the particular departments workflow diagram on that page using the widget connector. 

Ex. if Slide 3 was for Department x, on Department x's confluence page, I would use the Widget connector to display and Lock Slide 3 from the Bible Doc in Google. 

Breaking up the Google doc is not really an option for us or having copies of it. 

I suggest a feature on the Widget connector in Confluence in-order to bring in and lock a particular slide from the Google Docs so the updates made on the google doc can be seen in Confluence immediately. 

For now I will investigate other routes to approach this. perhaps there are ways to reference Slides Docs and bring the referenced doc into Widget connector in confluence(Hopefully). 

Please do let me know if you or the team at Atlassian can think of other ways to aproach this. 

 

Thanks
