Have you ever wondered whether Office documents, presentations and templates can be found, created and sent more quickly? Also, preferably on the road? It works! With the empower® Teams App.
With the empower® Teams App you can find all your Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, slides and templates directly in Teams via the empower® library. You type in one or more keywords and the chat-bot will answer with the best search results. This saves you endlessly searching for specific PowerPoint templates. Other content from your empower® library such as diagrams, tables, pictures, videos and icons can also be found quickly in the same way.
In a Teams chat you have the possibility to download the searched document or open it directly in the Teams window, internet browser or the Office/empower® Desktop App. Now you can make manual changes to the document, which are automatically saved in the chat history, but do not affect the original document from the empower® library. The customized PowerPoint presentation can be made available directly to colleagues via a Teams link or OneDrive without leaving the app.
In addition, you can browse the entire empower® library in the familiar folder structure through the application’s menu bar. Would you like to create a new PowerPoint presentation? It’s only a few clicks away. Use the company’s portfolio of PowerPoint templates and add them to your “list”. Language and display filters help you to find appropriate slides and charts templates. From the list you can download the new PowerPoint presentation directly or open it for changes in the desktop app’.
All functions of the empower® Teams App can be executed during a call/conference, so you don’t have to wait until after the call to work on the presentation.
Best of all, everything is possible from your smartphone or any other device, meaning you can access all documents and templates from anywhere.
