At Versal, we understand you have existing training materials. That’s why we offer multiple ways to display your already-made content directly in Versal.
PowerPoint presentations, spreadsheets, PDFs, and your other documents integrate seamlessly in Versal. This lets you take your existing training online immediately while creating new, even better content with our interactive tools. It’s the best of both worlds.
In the video, we published the spreadsheet before adding it to our Versal lesson. Publishing to the web makes the document visible to anyone with a link. It is also possible for your team members to interact with the document directly in Versal if you’d like.
To do that, click the blue share button in the top right corner of any Google document type (doc, sheet, or slide presentation).
A dialog box appears. Select the way you want team members to interact with the doc.
Anyone can edit – this allows anyone (author or learner) to enter the document through Versal and make changes to the document content.
Anyone can comment – this allows anyone to enter the document and leave comments, but not edit.
Anyone can view – this is similar to publishing the document. Learners and other authors can’t make changes to the content of the document, and they can’t leave comments. We recommend publishing instead as that makes the document more visually appealing.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to Word and Excel documents, but we’re using Microsoft’s free One Drive product this time. The process is still very much like what you saw in the video, so it will look familiar to you.
After the document opens, you need to click “File” in the top menu bar. We’re using an Excel document in this example, but the process is the same for Word documents.
Then click “Share”, and select “Embed”.
A preview window appears. Choose any display options you’d like, then copy the embed code.
Paste the embed code in the OneDrive gadget and your Microsoft document will appear.
The process is the same with Word documents.
