Back in SharePoint 2013, Microsoft discontinued slide libraries due to design limitations which makes me think that any other similar solution would be lack luster at best, but has anyone found a similar solution?

My organization uses tons of PowerPoints on a weekly basis and need to use the same slides, it's a somewhat clunky process to copy paste from other PowerPoints and I would love to set them up with a better experience.

Has anyone found a similar solution that includes all of the animations and functions of the original slide? Or how would one go about building something like that?


The Slide Library is “deprecated” in SharePoint 2013, but we still can create it via the URL “http://<site>/_layouts/15/slnew.aspx?FeatureId={0be49fe9-9bc9-409d-abf9-702753bd878d}&ListTemplate=2100”.

  • But, I've read elsewhere that it's a stripped down and less functional version of what it used to be. Does it appear to do everything it's supposed to? – Chris Cochrun Jan 15 '18 at 12:49
