How To Use Slack Presentation

Slack has emerged as a crucial tool for communication and teamwork in various work environments. However, are you aware that it also provides a robust feature for presentations? In this post, I’ll walk you through the process of utilizing Slack Presentation to craft compelling and interactive presentations guaranteed to captivate your audience.

Getting Started with Slack Presentation

Before we dive into the details, let me share a personal story. As a content creator, I often have to present my ideas and projects to my team. In the past, I used to rely on traditional presentation software, but I found myself constantly switching between different applications. That’s when I discovered Slack Presentation, and it completely changed the way I present my work.

First, you need to have the Slack desktop app installed on your computer. If you haven’t already, head over to the Slack website and download it. Once you have it installed, open the app and log in to your workspace.

Create a Presentation

Now that you are logged in to Slack, let’s create a presentation. In the left sidebar, click on the channel or direct message where you want to present. Then, click on the “+” icon to the right of the message input box and select “Start a Presentation”.

Slack will open a new tab with a blank presentation. You can give your presentation a title by clicking on the “Untitled Presentation” text at the top and entering a new title.

Add Slides

Once you have created your presentation, it’s time to add some slides. To add a new slide, click on the “+” icon at the bottom right corner of the screen. You can choose from various slide layouts, including title, text, image, and code. Select the layout that best suits your content.

For example, if you want to add a title slide, select the “Title” layout and enter your title. If you want to add a slide with text, select the “Text” layout and enter your content. You can format the text using Markdown for additional customization.

If you want to add an image to your slide, select the “Image” layout and upload the image from your computer or paste the image URL. Slack also allows you to add code snippets to your slides by selecting the “Code” layout.

Edit and Customize Slides

Once you have added your slides, you can edit and customize them to make your presentation more engaging. To edit a slide, simply click on the slide thumbnail on the left sidebar. You can change the content, colors, and fonts of each slide.

Slack Presentation also offers various advanced features to enhance your slides. For example, you can add transitions between slides by clicking on the “Transition” icon in the top toolbar. You can also add speaker notes by clicking on the “Speaker Notes” icon and entering your notes.

Present Your Slides

Now that you have created and customized your slides, it’s time to present your work. To start the presentation, click on the “Present” button in the top toolbar. Slack will open a full-screen view of your slides, allowing you to navigate through them using your keyboard or mouse.

During the presentation, you can use the “Notes” view to see your speaker notes and keep track of your talking points. You can also use the “Overview” view to see all your slides at once and jump to a specific slide if needed.


Slack Presentation is a powerful tool that allows you to create and deliver engaging presentations right within your Slack workspace. With its intuitive interface and advanced features, you can easily create impressive slides and captivate your audience. So why not give Slack Presentation a try for your next presentation? I guarantee it will take your presentation skills to the next level.
