We would like to use Powerpoint slide templates. This can be done using Sharepoint, but in the absence of a Sharepoint server, I was wondering if the same could be achieved using a shared server storage (mapped drive)?

Thanks

You don't need SharePoint for slide templates.

Hi,
I think this (the functionality of a SharePoint Slide Library) would not be possible on a simple shared drive.
SharePoint Slide library is more than just templates.
You would have no event receivers, no versioning, no cool features like "Build my PPT based on my updated company basic slides" ...

Powerpoint templates, just save as a .pot file on a share would do.
