Upload to Sharepoint Slide Repository is VERY slow - posting and gathering slides. RRS feed

  • Question

  • - Using Windows8 and MS Office 2013.

    - Uploading a slide to the sharepoint slide repository is very slow. Have requested to see if the Sharepoint server is on a fast enough machine.

    - No other work can continue on the PowerPoint App as the upload is proceeding in the background. Is this by design/bug or "get the feature out and improve it in the background" type feature decision?

    - Is it indexing all items in the slide? Is that why it is taking so long? If so, it would be nice to show a progress bar of what is happening in the background with status messages to the user, instead of spinning circle which is more of an annoyance factor since one doesn't know if the application is hung or if there is something useful happening in the background.

    - Similarly, gathering multiple slides into a single presentation also takes an inordinate amount of time.

    Any guidance is much appreciated.
