Updated November 10, 2020
Salesforce will retire Quip Slides on January 31, 2021, and we recommend that you convert your Quip Slide presentations to Quip Documents before this time. All features in Quip are built for documents first, and thus will be able to support the data which currently lives in your presentations.
Why are we retiring Quip Slides?
Quip’s collaboration-first environment and deepening Salesforce integrations are ultimately better suited to documents and spreadsheets than to presentations. With COVID-19 affecting businesses nationwide, we have reprioritized which features our teams should focus on.
What is changing? How will this change impact my org?
You will no longer be able to create new slides decks from the Quip product. Your existing slide decks will be available in a view-only mode, and you won’t lose any data. This also means templating support, process builder, api endpoint, importing pptx, and copying a slide deck will no longer be supported
Note: New customers to Quip will not be able to create slide decks if they deploy after 11/17/2020
What action do I need to take?
Before January 31, 2021, please move your slide content to a Quip document to continue to edit the content. This ensures your content is accessible and editable in the future. You’ll also be able to export it to a PDF.
What happens if I don’t take action?
After January 31, 2021, we will no longer support editing existing slide decks. Existing slides will continue to work as view-only slide decks, but we will no longer release any new slide features. We will also no longer provide technical support, issue fixes, or enhancements for issues related to slides after the above date.
What if I rely on Slides?
How do I know if this impacts my users?
The Quip slides retirement impacts all Quip users; no reporting is available.
