Create a powerpoint presentation from a sharepoint list item with a workflow

Good morning,

is it possible to save a selected item from a SharePoint list with a workflow to PowerPoint as a presentation? But the content must be in certain places in this PPT-presentation.

Thank you!

Hi @Heidi04,

 

The Plumsail connector (third party) has an action for this:

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/plumsail/#create-pptx-document-from-template

https://plumsail.com/docs/documents/v1.x/flow/actions/document-processing.html#create-pptx-document-...

 

Below is an example

A list called Presentation Source Data is used to retrieve the input, a Power Point which acts as a template is stored in a library called Power Point templates and the generated pptx is stored in a library called LibraryC.

 

1. A Power Point file with some placeholders

2. The source list

3. The power automate setup

4. The end result

Happy to help out! 🙂
