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.' 

To allow authors to upload their own files to use for background audio on their presentations:

  • Go to My Application, 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 Applications, Presentations
  • 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
  • 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
