Redirect old URLs to the new version after a name change

I changed the name of my deck and moved to my own subdomain on slides.com. The previous URLs I shared with everyone no longer work. They should redirect to the latest URL of the deck.

    Hey! We automatically redirect all of your presentation URLs when upgrading to a Team with a subdomain.

    We don’t provide an option for redirecting from any previous slug to a new one but that’s an interesting idea too.

        We have a warning for that but turns out it was hidden when changing the slug for a private deck. I think that condition was put in place before we allowed sharing of private presentations. I've updated it now so that the warning text appears as soon as you focus the slug input field, for both private and public presentations.

        Even without slug redirects, the UI could warn me that old links will stop working when I change the name of my deck.
