Google Slides Chapter 9: Saving and Exporting


Section 8.1: Sharing a Google Slide Presentation

Sharing a presentation is safe because it has no risk of anything being lost while converting. Keep in mind that the recipient must also have the Google Suite. Also, people who frequently use Google Slides will be comfortable using this format, even with screen readers.

If the person does have Google Slides, you should share it or send it to them in an email. To share your presentation,

  1. Click the share button in the top right corner.

    The Share button with a lock symbol in Google Docs.
  2. Type in the person who you want the document sent to.

    The share panel in Google Docs with a text box to type in names.
  3. Click the blue Done button.

How to send your presentation as an email:

  1. Go to the File tab.

  2. Click Email in the dropdown menu.

  3. Click on Email this file.

If you need to send your project to someone who does not have Google, you can download it as a PowerPoint. You can do this by clicking the File Tab, then click the Download menu, then click PowerPoint.

Section 8.2: Save to OneDrive

Saving a document to OneDrive is a way of storing documents in the cloud. They can be accessed from the cloud from any device. OneDrive is similar to services like Dropbox, Google Drive, Sharing through, and iCloud. You can share files in OneDrive with other people. You can set permissions as read-only, or shared editing. If the person gets the file online, the file will likely open in the web browser.
