Disable Slide Update

This policy setting controls whether users can link slides in a presentation with their counterparts in a PowerPoint 2007 Slide Library.

If you enable this policy setting, PowerPoint 2007 cannot check the status of a slide in a Slide Library when a presentation with Slide Update data is opened.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, each time users open a presentation that contains a shared slide, PowerPoint 2007 notifies them if the slide has been updated and provides them with the opportunity to ignore the update, append a new slide to the outdated slide, or replace the outdated slide with the updated one.

Supported on: At least Windows Vista
