Did you know? You can create your own Smart Media by customizing an existing template to fit your needs or by creating one from scratch.


Benefits of Smart Media

Using Smart Media gives you greater control and flexibility over your presentation. When you apply Smart Media, your text updates automatically to match the template. Notice how Proclaim retains all the content, including the CCLI information and song details.

Smart Media also remembers your church’s information across your presentations, like your church’s name whenever it’s referenced by a Smart Media template.

Proclaim also remembers your church website. Enter it once and every time a Smart Media template includes your website in any future presentations, it displays automatically.

Proclaim remembers your social media information across presentations. Enter your handles once and Smart Media templates will display them anytime you add a social media slide in future presentations.

Note: Your customizations—including church information like your website and social media handles—sync to everyone else on your team.
