By default, the title of this slide is 'Table of Contents', however, you can change it from the slide settings. The first item in the list is the Title slide. The main list items are titles of section slides in the storyboard. The list items under a section are the titles of slides within that section. Click a list item to navigate to that slide.
Note: An Associated Content slide is not listed in the table of contents.
Layout of the content list
A two column layout contains the list items that exceed the standard slide length. In such a case, the slide extends and a scroll bar appears. A vertical rule separates each column. A horizontal rule separates each section. You can define the color and formatting options for this slide in the Main Theme section of the Theme Builder.
Tip: To make the Table of Contents slide most effective, place it just after the Title slide.

The following image shows the links at the bottom of the slide while creating the storyboard.
An associated content slide can be one of the following slide types:
