The right presentation can get your point across like nothing else—but creating them day in and day out isn't really the best use of your time.

With Google Slides, you can create completely customizable presentations in Google's familiar interface. Then, easily share them with anyone that has a web browser.

Google Slides helps you build beautiful slide decks from a variety of templates. You can upload your own visuals to get your message across, and even collaborate on their creation with your team-mates.

They go beyond static content, too. Connect your slides to existing data on Google Sheets to update charts on the fly, or capture new information from Google Forms. Set up some Zapier automation, and you'll be able to update slides in real time, or share your work on a schedule.

How Google Slides Works With Zapier


  • New Presentation: Triggers when a new presentation is created.

Search Actions

  • Find Presentation: Finds an existing presentation and retrieves its details.


  • Create Presentation from Template: Creates a new presentation based on an existing one and can replace any placeholder variables between pairs of curly braces in your template presentation, like , , etc.
  • Refresh Charts: Refreshes the data for all charts in a presentation that have been linked to Google Sheets.
