Embedding Hyperlinks into Presentations via the Slides Application

How to embed hyperlinks from a database field into PowerPoint presentations using the Slides Application

Use one of the options listed below to insert a live hyperlink into your PowerPoint template.
1. Using a URL stored in the database to hyperlink text stored in the database. 
This method requires two text fields. One field to store the text you wish to display in the document and one field to store the URL for the hyperlink.


2. Using a URL stored in the database to hyperlink text stored within the template itself. 
This method requires one text field to store the URL. Enclose the text you would like to hyperlink within the syntax as displayed in the below example.

{~~ “This text will be linked” | hyperlink: URL_FIELD_NAME }


Below is an image of the two fields in your database that would be pulled in for the hyperlink.
