Replace Slides

You can swap in a new set of slides into your Glean Event. This is great if your lecturer sends out an updated slide deck after your class, or you accidentally pick the wrong set of slides to import.

The slide deck associated with your project is replaced entirely, and your feed updated with the new slides. If you skipped, or posted slides out of order, then the same will be done with the new slide deck.

  2. Select Replace Slides
  3. Pick your new file
  4. Confirm by clicking Replace Slides

Delete Slides

If you simply want to remove all your slides, so that you can start over, then use the Delete Slides option. Using this option removes all your slides from the entire project, but keeps all your other content.

  2. Select Delete Slides
