About this article
This article will explain what Validator is and how to enable it. With the Validator function slides can be locked for editing for the end-user to ensure admins gain control over specific slide content. If these locked slides are updated by the admin, the changes can be pushed to presentations locally saved by the end-user.
What is Validator?
With Validator admins can keep specific slides locked for editing by the end-user so that the content can only be altered if a change is made by the admin. This helps to ensure information stays accurate and up to date. If changes are made to locked slides, a pop-up will prompt the end-user to accept the changes and update their version of the presentation.
