With the Qorus Cart, you can re-use slides from different presentations and assemble them into a brand new personalized presentation. You can assemble new presentations using any of the Qorus Add-ins, as well as from Hub Central.
In this article, we'll explain how to:
1. Add all the slides in a presentation to a cart
From either the Search pane, or from your favorites, click on 'Add' to add a whole presentation to your cart:
Once you've added your first slides to the cart, a new section will appear in your add-ins, indicating how many slides (or items) there are in your cart, as well as a button allowing you to clear your cart in case you want to start over:
2. Pick and choose different slides from a presentation and add them to a cart
Instead of adding an entire presentation to the cart, you can choose which slides you'd like to add from the Preview.
To launch the preview window, click on 'Preview':
Then go over to the 'Gallery' preview, and click on the slides to select the ones you want. When you're ready, click on 'Add selected items to the cart':
3. Delete unwanted slides from a cart
To access and manage the items in a cart, click on the shopping cart icon:
Then in the 'Cart Contents' window, select the slides you don't need by clicking on them, and then click on 'Delete selected items':
4. Re-arrange the slides in a cart
While you're in the Cart Contents window (click on the shopping cart icon in the Search pane to bring this up), you can select slides by clicking on them.
After you've made your selections, and with your finger pressed down on your left mouse button, drag your selection to a new spot, and release the left mouse button when you see the orange bar appear in the spot where you'd like to move your selection to:
5. Checkout and personalize the assembled slide deck
When you're ready, you can proceed to the checkout, by clicking on the 'Checkout' button:
The information you provide in this form will be used by Qorus to instantly personalize the new presentation you're assembling.
Smart Fields do an 'auto find and replace', getting rid of placeholder text and personalizing it with real customer information you provide in the form. Smart Rules are essentially 'show / hide' rules, which when evaluated based on the information provided in the form, will auto-adapt the inserted content for the business context.

When you're ready, click on 'Continue', which will take you next to this screen:
Let's go through these options one at a time:
1. First off, you'll need to provide a name for the new presentation to be created
2. Next, you'll be asked whether the new presentation should be created in its original format (in this case PowerPoint), or if the new document should be created as a PDF. Here we've selected the PDF option.
3. If you check the box 'Save this document', Qorus will save the document to the location you specify.
If you choose not to check the box 'Save this document', Qorus will skip the step of saving it to your Office 365, and will go straight to giving you the option to open the new file.
And since we're working in Outlook here, we'll also have the option to attach the PDF to the email:
In PowerPoint, it's possible to create slides in A4 or letter format, in portrait or landscape mode, and much more:
The slides you assemble with Qorus can come from any presentation - provided that all the slides are of the same size. Assembling slides that are for example sized as 'Letter Paper', with slides that are sized as 'Widescreen' is not supported.
