Using Background Audio on a presentation

Background audio will be available for authors to use in their presentations if it has been enabled on the site. A Company Administrator has to enable 'Allow authors to upload background audio files for use in their presentations.' 

As a Company Admin, to allow authors to upload their own files to use for background audio on their presentations:

  • Click on your profile then Administration
  • Select Presentation Settings, General Properties from the left menu
  • Set 'Allow use of background audio in presentations' to Yes
  • Set 'Allow authors to upload background audio files for use in their presentations' to Yes
  • Save

Once this is enabled, an author can add background audio by navigating to:

  • My Content
  • Select My Media Library
  • Select the background audio tab
  • Select Add background audio link
  • Browse to an .MP3 file
  • Select Save
  • Repeat steps 1-5 for any other background audio files

Adding Background audio to a presentation:

  • Edit a presentation
  • Select Manage audio, then Background audio
  • Select Add background audio link
    • Select My Library tab and make your selections
    • Select Company Library and make your selections
  • Select Add Selected button
  • Select Start and End Slide options
  • Set the volume percentage for the audio file. Best practices recommend 40% or less if additional audio exists for the designated slides.
  • Save or Apply changes
