  4. Insert header and footer

    Since I want to work together with other people I use PowerPoint Online. I ran in to a problem with headers and footers on the slides. According to the help you need to copy a textbox onto each slide.
    Why isn't the offline functionality integrated with PowerPoint Online

  5. Create a "Share as Slideshow" link option (without full HTML of embed code)

    With the recent change to open share links in Edit mode, if you want to send to a recipient to just play a slideshow, the recipient must then click to play the deck after opening it.

    In many cases, we want to the recipient to jump right into the slideshow mode.

    Embed code is similar, but comes with the additional HTML for the iFrame. If we just want to send the link via Teams, Skype or email, this is overkill.

    We'd like the Share option in PowerPoint to have an option to "open as slideshow" or "share as slideshow," so…

  7. Word Count

    Please bring back word count online. It is so much easier then having to copy and paste your text into a word counter website.

  10. Embed videos from any online source

    enough already. I'm not going to use OneDrive for everything. Stop screwing around and allow us to embed videos from someplace other than onedrive or youtube.

  12. The simplified ribbon is simple, just too simple for my liking. The classic ribbon has everything there, unlike the simplified ribbon

    Let the simplified ribbon be off by default. The classic ribbon is much more useful and every time I'm on 365, I change it to classic ribbon

  13. Presenter view in PowerPoint Online.

    It would be nice to also have a Presenter view while using PowerPoint Online. It is the only way for us to easily view notes while presenting.

  15. Record audio / timings online.

    I would love to use PowerPoint instead of BrainShark and this could be achieved by allowing audio recording / timings online and for each individual slide at a time. Also in embedded playback to automatically play audio.

  16. Animations Pane

    The Animations Pane is missing making the flexibility and versatility of animations almost lost. Like what if I want to slow the duration of an animation down, or put a delay on it, or change whether it happens after I click, or after the previous animation. These things should have been considered when PowerPoint Online was planned, but the idea of a user controlled development team is an amazingly brilliant idea, so good job Microsoft (But most of all the amazing employees that work there).

  17. More Animations

    I am using PowerPoint as a tool to have my students generate custom animations of biological processes. By adding the functionality of custom motion paths, looping and multiple animations per object (vis a vis the animation pane) the online version could better match the desktop version and projects like this could be completed on a wider array of devices, like chromebooks.

  19. Custom Template

    Is there a way to load a custom template into PowerPoint online? I tried launching a .potx file directly from my onedrive, but it won't let me it edit the file online. The only option is to edit the file in the locally installed version of PowerPoint. It would be nice if PowerPoint online recognized that that a .potx file was launched and automatically created a .pptx file in the main folder of my onedrive. Or, better yet, create a way for admins to upload a .potx file so that it shows up along with the MS default templates when…

  20. Support More Slide Themes

    Add more themes to be able to make your PowerPoint look better. Even my PowerPoint in Microsoft Office 2010 has more themes than PowerPoint Online. That's pretty bad.
