Sharing - make a copy

If I share a presentation, how can they then make a copy for edit for themselves?

Please add that person as a collaborator, then they will be able to make a copy.

One of my direct reports created and shared several presentations with me and other team members. Now, he is gone (no longer works for the company), is there a way we can copy the presentations in order to edit them?

@CHARA_YOUNG You can only create a copy of the presentation if the owner gives you edit rights to it. Please ask the former colleague to add you and/or other team members as collaborators with edit rights to the presentations, then make a copy of them in your own account.

This way you will become the owner of the copy and you can access the presentation even if the owner of the original version deletes the presentation.

So, if we are unable to reach the former employee, does that mean we are unable to copy and edit the presentation?


I’m afraid this is the case unless the owner sets the presentation as public and reusable in which case anybody can make a copy but if it is a private presentation, only the owner can give editing rights to it.

Hi, My daughter has shared a Prezi with me, and I want to save it to my account. Is that possible?

Hey @Sheena_Byrom, make sure you’re a collaborator with editing rights on the presentation, then simply make a copy of the shared presentation. The new copy will be yours to do however you see fit!

You can read more about collaborating here.

I hope this helped :slight_smile:

Is it possible to make a copy of a prezi that you are an editor on and not an owner? Thanks in advance for any insight!

Hey @Krista_Pugliesi I’ve merged your question to the relevant thread, can you check my reply above? :slight_smile:

In short, you will be able to make a copy as long as the presentation doesn’t contain features your account does not have.

Hope this helped!

A former TA prepared presentations for class, using his name, and now I can’t include as a collaborator a new TA since the presentation is registered in the name of the former TA

Hi @Mariano_Avila, I’ve merged your question to the relevant topic.
If you would like to access the presentation you would need to ask the owner to share it with your account so you can make a copy on your own account.
Hope this helps!

I am working on a group project and would like to copy and download all of my group member’s presentations so that I can put them all together. How do I do this? The links to the presentations that I need are:

I also need this one

Hello @Jessica_Miller, I merged your post with the relevant thread.

If you’d like to make a copy of those presentations, firstly you have to ask your colleagues to add you as a collaborator to them, so then you’re able to create the copies :slight_smile:

Hope this could help!

Gostaria de usar como modelo a apresentação pronta de um outra colega, é possível?

Hi @DIESSICA_FERREIRA, Eu uni sua pergunta ao tĂłpico relevante.

Se quiser fazer uma cópia dessas apresentações, primeiro você deve pedir a seus colegas para adicioná-lo como colaborador a elas, para que então você possa criar as cópias. :slight_smile:
