Show Collaborator's Edits in PowerPoint
I wish that on shared powerpoint we can see who did what or a history showing other group members editing the powerpoint. I wish we can see who contributed to the powerpoint and makes it easier for us to communicate better if we know who's doing what. Google slides have it and I am not sure if Microsoft Powerpoint has it.
You can now view edits from your collaborators from Version History in PowerPoint Online on SharePoint and OneDrive for Business. To find the feature, go to File>Info>Version History. Let us know what you think.
I would just like to see a revision history that shows me who worked on certain slides. As a teacher, it would be extremely helpful to be able to see which students worked on various pieces in a collaborative presentation or document.

As a teacher, I would like to see notes as to who did what in a shared document or PowerPoint. Since they are logged in on their Office 365 school accounts, can you enable or create this feature? More transparency for teachers on shared Office 365 office software would be very beneficially. Otherwise, we have to have students create a Google account to use Google products when we're a Microsoft school. That seems silly!
There should be an option in which you can edit any PPT once put up on the Internet in any school portal etc. and from then there should be a notification sent to the owner of the PPT in which it reads that "Your PPT Has Been Edited And The New PPT Has Been Sent To You, If You Want You Can Reverse The Change Or Keep It". If the change has been reversed, the person who edited it will get a message telling him/her that it has been reversed, but if it has been kept, the person will get a message telling him/her that the change has been saved and posted again.
It would be nice if there was a section that both tracked changes as well as user notes/feedback. That way people can more collaborative iterate on a project.
I need to know the revision history of the document
Show who has edited what in a document, but only when you are editing the powerpoint, not when presenting
