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 recipients can click to automatically view in slideshow mode.
I would also like this option! for virtual office

I would also like this to support the Zoom feature in Powerpoint. Right now I don't see the usefulness of the Zoom feature if I can't actually give it to anyone to use via SharePoint, Teams, or anything online.
The key change is replacing the action parameter with embedview so that animations can be displayed. The manual method is to click Start Slide Show when the PowerPoint file opens in Office Web App.
So disappointing and frustrating that I have lost two days of my time trying to find answers to realize there is not such a function to open a PPO on show mode even though it is saved as a show.

Having used PowerPoint for training and business since it’s inception, I come from an age when the customer needs drove the technology rather than vice versa. What Is the point of a Ppsx option if one cannot use it. No organisation is too big to ignore its customers.
John Korchok commented
Posting a .ppsx file should automatically launch it in PowerPoint Online. There's no good reason for any other behavior. Duh.

This is really frustrating that both the web version, and the Sharepoint powerpoint web part don't support opening a PPSX file - as others have commented this feature would be brilliant for embedding self playing Powerpoints into a Sharepoint web page for training or monthly updates. Equally needs to support the Zoom feature so they can run with a menu like structure.

I'd like to add my voice to this. As an instructor I need to be able to send PPSX files to people via a link (the file is too big to email.) In this age of the coronavirus this should be a simple thing to add to the share menu! Please help us!

Now that we are using Office 365 more, we need a way to communicate sales, HR, and other information without worrying about the message being changed.
By allowing a presentation to start in Presentation Mode (.ppsx) gives us that ability without creating a PDF file of the presentation and missing out on all the cool animations or affects built into a good presentation.
Please consider adding this file type or capability to PowerPoint soon.

Google slides calls this, "publish to web" and it works great.
This would be great for kiosks style, nonlinear styled presentations with links.
I really hope "Share as Slideshow" becomes a reality. In cases where slide decks contain hidden slides or the slide decks are interactive/self-paced, it is important for the viewer to not be able to see/interact with the deck itself, only the experience created by the presenter.
Have a students mode button so they don't see all the details. Even if you change settings to read only, you can still see all of that. That way students can just view the power point without going to the bottom of the screen and click anything.
This is extremely frustrating. I want to share a PowerPoint with my employees that launches automatically and doesn't show a preview of slides which I don't want them to see! I want them to work their way through the PowerPoint by answering questions which will progress them to the relevant slide
As a teacher pushing out a powerpoint to parents to view, there is zero reason to open it in the editor. Many will not find the "Present" button. There should be an option to link the slideshow so it will play automatically.
Still no Solution to this? When sharing with customers, they manually have to press slideshow. Poor user experience.

There doesn't seen to be a way to upload a power point presentation to Sharepoint and only have it open up in Slideshow mode. I can only get it to open up Powerpoint in editing mode where all the slides appear for editing . My goal is to have people access my SharePoint Page and click on the presentation for training.
