Different authentication methods
Depending on how you set up your Vevox account determines the method you use to log in to PowerPoint.
Email and Password - The most common method for logging in. When you created your Vevox account you will have used your email address and created a password. Use these details here to connect the PowerPoint add-in with your Vevox account.
Microsoft Login - An option when signing up for a Vevox account is to use your Microsoft Account details to authenticate yourself. If you chose this option when creating your account you will need to select 'Sign in with Microsoft' and use your Microsoft account details.
Authentication Code - All users can connect their Vevox account with PowerPoint using the Authentication code which is located in your Vevox dashboard. The instruction for where to obtain this are at the bottom of this article.
If you access your Vevox dashboard through your Universities' Learning Management System (e.g. Canvas, Blackboard or Moodle) then you won't have standard login details, you will need to use the Authentication Code method to link your Vevox account with PowerPoint.
If your organisation uses Single Sign On (SSO) to access Vevox then you will also need to use the Authentication Code method to link your Vevox account with PowerPoint. You will need to go to your unique dashboard URL (eg. MyInstitution.vevox.com) to generate an authentication code for the Vevox PowerPoint add-in.
How to generate an authentication code
Your authentication code can be generated by clicking on the PowerPoint add-in button from your dashboard.
Here you can find out a little more information about the PowerPoint add-in and a link to download the add-in. On the last page of this PowerPoint information guide you can generate your code.
Press the 'generate code' button and then press 'copy'. This will copy the code to your clipboard and you can then paste this into the authentication code box within the login screen in PowerPoint.
