  2. 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.

  3. Enable rich-text formatting for comments.

    I would like to be able to use bolding, italics, subscripting, and superscripting in PowerPoint comments to help certain text stand out and to make suggestions more specific.

  4. Save chart templates into a PPT template and/or theme.

    Have templates contain chart templates so that when you insert a new chart, one of the templates is applied, with additional options. For example, if I insert a pie chart, the top chart template for pies is automatically applied, and/or maybe I'm given the option to choose which pie template (if multiple) I want to apply.
    Main goal: Make it easier for corporations to force employees to use charts with the desired formatting.

  5. Ability to specifying download folder

    This would save a lot of searching around and disk space if we could straight away put a document in the folder we wanted rather than having a copy in downloads and then a save as copy in another folder. Also minimizes downloading twice.

  7. Optionally disable languages, so one doesn't have to keep resetting a default

    One should be able to live inside the eco system of a particular language, rather than having to change it every time you receive a communication from another. A company should be able to globally set its language preference.

  9. Edit on Mobile Devices

    I am writing to request that PowerPoint Online be made to fit a screen on a mobile device from the web browser on said device. I like using PowerPoint Online, however I own an iPhone and I since I like to have first party apps I have Apple's Keynote app installed but not PowerPoint. I only request this because from my iPhone, I cannot access PowerPoint Online to edit an existing document I may have stored on my OneDrive. My thinking is, what if I needed to update, by editing, a document someone sends me with a PowerPoint file format…

  10. Automatically update the date in the footer when changes are made to slides

    Where I work we use PowerPoint Online to keep organizational charts of employees. As people come and go, or change teams, we need to update these charts. It would be handy to have PPO automatically update the date in the footer when changes are made.

  11. Enable the use of connectors

    Currently in Powerpoint online, we cannot use "Connectors" : add an arrow to a slide and connect 2 boxes. This feature is necessary for simple diagrams.

  19. When aligning multiple objects, allow to user to select which object to align to. (e.g. align all objects to the first selected object)

    For example, if I have 3 objects that I want to align to. Right now the align tools, does not allow the user to specify which object to align to. In Keynote, I think you can do this by select the object you want to align to first, and all others will be aligning to this one.

  20. Storyboard support from Visual Studio

    Now a days one can create nice story board with Visual Studio (2013 or later) or the Team Foundation Server Standalone Office Integration 2015 (free),.
    this will allow to create nice story board.
    Many people are using MAC machines and they highly dependednt on online office word, power point etc.
    If this function can be added to Power Point online it wil be very useful
