Getting started is a snap!
Go to https://my.poexis.com and sign on with your Google ID
Click on "My Templates" in the top navigation menu
Click on "Create" under Digital Business Card template
Click on "Make a copy" - this copies the Google Slides Poexis template into your drive and opens it up
Now you're ready to go! 🙌
All you need to do is edit this Google Slides presentation - and Poexis takes care of the rest.
The name of your document will be the name of your app! You will be able to access your app at a link that looks something like this: http://[your user name].poexis.cloud.com/[my-app-name]
Rename the document to something appropriate like "Card", "Business Card", etc.
Your document's new name will appear when someone opens your app's link
This next step is optional! If you want to, you can also update your username on my.poexis.com. Any apps you have will have to be republished for the change to take effect - it's just a click away!
You can change your user name in Account Profile. You can skip this step if you want!
Now it's time to make your business card your own!
You're probably an awesome person, but you might want to write something a little more specific😉
Edit the slide to reflect your information:
Profile Picture: Your can right click on the image & choose "Replace image"
Before you move on to the last steps, share this slide deck with Poexis by clicking on "Share" button and type in [email protected]
That's it 🙌 - you are ready to publish this card!
You're almost done!
Go to my.poexis.com/my-apps
Click on "Create New App"
Copy & paste the Google Slides URL of your card to import it
