If you're new to Compose, you may want to check out this introductory article first.
Before you launch Compose and start composing new documents and presentations with Qorus, you'll need to locate the document or presentation you want to use as your starting point.
You can do this in one of two ways:
- Search for the file you want to use
- Use your favorites to access the file you want to use
Another important point to mention is that you don't have to necessarily be working with Qorus Document Builder Add-in for Word to compose new documents, and you don't have to be working with the Qorus Slide Builder Add-in for PowerPoint to compose new presentations. You can use any of the Qorus Add-ins compose new documents and presentations from the content you already have.
1. SEARCH FOR THE DOCUMENT YOU WANT TO USE
If you're not sure how to best use the search functionality within the Qorus Add-ins, you can find detailed information on this topic right here.
Once you've run your search and located the document or presentation you want to use, all you need to do is click on the file title to expand the search result, and then on 'Compose' to start composing.
2. USE YOUR FAVORITES TO ACCESS THE FILE YOU WANT TO USE
Pinning your frequently used 'model' documents and presentations, and creating saved searches that return all the latest boilerplate files for use with Compose, are great ways to make use of your Favorites. This saves you from having to type a search term in the search box and/or select refiners like keywords and file types each time you want to re-use a document or a presentation to create a new one with Compose.
Just as with search results, clicking on the title of the file reveals more information about the pinned file, as well as options for working with it. Click on 'Compose' to get started with composing your new presentation or document.
