The whole point of using this version of powerpoint for many people is to be able to work on it together as a group without having to meet up. With that being said I believe it would be a great benefit If users would have a chat panel in which they can discuss their project. Being able to make notes, ask questions and give suggestions within the powerpoint would be nice.
But maybe the chat can be permanent, so it doesn't delete everything when you close the app.
Hi Katie, there is a DocChat channel integrated within the PPT Online app. When there are multiple people on the same doc, a Chat button will show up on the top right corner of the header.
I don't mean skype either. I mean an actual chat area. So if someone is not on the message will be waiting on them when they come back in.
