The MarkLogic Sample Authoring App for PowerPoint® is a simple yet powerful application that integrates content enrichment, search and reuse in Microsoft PowerPoint. The ability to enrich, search, and reuse content at a component level in PowerPoint, saves users a significant amount of time as they can build presentations from existing content and enables document collaboration within teams.

This application allows authors to enrich their presentations, giving them the ability to tag components and associate custom metadata with tagged content. Authors can also use the application to manage and edit their metadata, search and reuse existing components from PowerPoint presentations saved in MarkLogic.

With the Sample Authoring Application for PowerPoint users can

  • Enrich PowerPoint presentations by tagging presentations, slides, and slide components
  • Associate custom metadata with those identified components
  • Search those identified components once saved in MarkLogic Server
  • Reuse components from presentations saved in MarkLogic Server to the presentation being authored while retaining any associated metadata across documents

The MarkLogic Sample Authoring App for PowerPoint® is built using the MarkLogic Toolkit for PowerPoint® and is just one example of a type of content application you can build using the Toolkit and MarkLogic Server.
