Various file types, such as Word, PowerPoint, and PDF, can be imported into Ovation from your PC. The text, slides, and images from these imported files can then be used on various tools, including the Projector and Notecard.
Files can be imported into Ovation using our web portal (assuming the Default Sync Method is selected) or from within the application.
