What is the difference between a Presentation and a SlideShow?

CustomShow allows users to create their own customized versions of presentations, as well as work with content made available to entire organizations.

This versatility is built around the concept of working with a connected Library of presentation content, and using these materials to create shareable content.

Presentation is the editable format where slides are added to. Presentations are created, modified, and shared in the Library and Editor consoles. Presentations can only be shared to other CustomShow users, which allows for collaborative reviewing and editing.


SlideShow is a shareable format that contains one or more presentations. SlideShows can be provided to anyone by sharing a unique weblink (or URL). Viewing progress on the shared content is tracked, making the viewer's experience visible to a SlideShow creator.


Importantly, a SlideShow is presentable remotely and when showing content in-person. By using the CustomShow Desktop Viewer or CustomShow iPad App, users can download their SlideShows to a local device and present without the need for a network connection.

SlideShow is created in the SlideShow Console, and each new SlideShow is created by selecting a single presentation. More presentations can then later be added to a SlideShow, allowing the viewing experience to progress from one presentation to the next seamlessly.
