Merge PowerPoint slides

Dear community

 

I'd like to merge multiple slides together. Ideally, flow would go through all the slides I've prepared in a library and creates a new file/presentation out of it. I've been trying to do that with Get-content, create file and update file, but nothing seems to really give what I need.

 

Does anyone know how to do that? I wouldn't want to use a 3rd party connector.

 

Thanks and kind regards,

Flow does not currently have a native connector for PowerPoint files. That said, if you want to get your hands dirty, a .pptx file is just a .zip file. You could create a flow that disassembles the various .pptx files, then combines the slides subfolders from each. Unfortunately, at that point, you'd still have to come up with a way of combining the files back into a new .pptx files, as none of the file based connectors such as OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, Google Drive or Box have the ability to create archive/zip files, only methods to unpack them.

Hi @mrQ ,

 

You could consider using Merge Multiple PowerPoint PPTX Together action.

Thanks

 

Even though this is 3rd party, I gave it a try, but it doesn't really work since the file is always ending up corrupted.

Did you try to open the file after you saved it?

 

Kind regards,

 

Hi @mrQ,

 

The result of my test here is that the specified two PPT files can be merged together and can be opened.

 

Could you share your detailed configuration?

Thanks for your response.

 

Here is my config:

** update **

I edited the flow and used "get file content by path" with which it worked now. I don't know why that is, but I'm happy with this. Thanks!
