empower slides 8.3 (Win)

New Features

 

New Cross-Platform Sync

  • Auto Discovery of the Sync: when users work in different parts of the world, the empower Sync will automatically recognize which end points are available, and will connect to one closest to the user’s geographic location. This offers more flexibility to your IT who can set up additional end points without the need up updating clients. Users who travel frequently will benefit from even better performance.
  • Local Cache: if library content is not synchronized locally by default, empower will keep all elements that users download and if requested a second time, it will open the element from the local cache - if it is still up to date.

 

New Installer

  • Single user installer: empower slides can be installed as a single user edition without admin rights.
  • Auto updater: empower slides can now be updated automatically. The user will receive a notification which will ask if the new version of empower should be downloaded. Afterward PowerPoint is required to be restarted.

 

DAM Integration

  • Any DAM system (offering a proper API) can be integrated with empower with only a very limited effort required. Please contact us to discuss your integration requirements.
  • If required, royalty free and high-quality images from the image platform Unsplash.com can be accessed directly in empower.
   

Bugs & Improvements

 

  • Optimal DPI support: scenarios with multiple monitors and different zoom levels have been improved.
  • Improvements for “Protect charts”: The feature Protect charts now uses vector-based charts to best display protected charts.
  • Extended rights for editors: authorization for all roles can be adapted, i.e. to allow editors to also set up, edit and delete folders. To implement this, a central setting and restart of the backend are required.
  • Optimized empower search: the Google-esque full text search is now even more advanced in order to identify the most relevant results even better
