Next to structuring and grouping content, links are the third key element of creating a smart, dialogue based presentation.

Just like a website, with links you can jump between slides. There are many use cases: a (sub)menu, an overview page, question/ answer, references, more details, relevant links and more.

In ShamanGo you create a clickable area on the slide that links to a different slide.

Presentation → Edit presentation → Add → Link

If you want to add a link pointing to another slide, you need open the slide where you want to add the link. Then go to “Add” and select “Link”.

1. Draw a clickable area around a text or an image

Click on the slide (keep the left button pressed down) and drag the clickable area over the text or image, then release the mouse button.

2. Set up the destination slide

Move your cursor to the link area and press the "Edit" icon in the upper left corner. You can now select the destination of the link, which will be a another slide in the same presentation.

You can also choose a dynamic link:

  • Previous: links to the previous slide in the canvas

  • Next: links to the next slide in the canvas

  • Back: links to the previous visited slide in the meeting. This is useful for example when you have a disclaimer, reference page with a dismiss button to go back to previous visited page.

Not yet satisfied?
Copy or delete the link area, change the destination by using the icons in the upper left corner, or change the shape by clicking and dragging the border of the area.

Presentation → Edit presentation → Add → Navigation link

If you want to add a link pointing to the navigation view of the presentation, you need open the slide where you want to add the link. Then go to “Add” and select “Navigation Link”.

Draw a clickable area around a text or an image

Click on the slide (keep the left button pressed down) and draw the clickable area over the text or image then release the mouse button. When the user clicks inside this area, the navigation view will come up in Veeva iRep.

Presentation → Edit presentation → Add → Web link

Adding an external web link works similarly to adding a simple link. If you have the right slide open, click on “Add” and select “Web link”.

1. Draw a clickable area around a text or an image

Click on the slide (keep the left button pressed down) and draw the clickable area over the text or image then release the mouse button.

2. Add the URL of the website

Move your cursor to the link area and press the "Edit" icon in the upper left corner. Now a smaller window will pop up where you can enter the URL of a website. Click “Done” when finished.

To test whether your link works properly or not, go to the Preview section. You can always go back to the slide to change the URL.

You can check how the link works if you go to the Preview section.
