How do I quickly save a presentation under a new name and file extension?

A few of you asked me if there was anything specific in the separate saving procedure I would call at the end of my PowerPoint slides consolidation routine as well as what my reasoning for its inclusion in the code in the first place was.

Well, I had several requirements:

(1) The date when the presentaton was compiled had to be added to the presentation name

(2) The presentation had to be saved with a .pptx extension as it needed to be uploaded to a virtual conference room, which did not accept .pptm extensions

(3) Last but not least,  I wanted my newly compiled presentation to be saved in the exactly same location as its template

Hence, I would use the second part of the snippet below to address all these

Couldn’t you just use “Save As” to get your presentations as expected?

I could, of course… I just like automating as many manual steps as possible
