PowerPoint Feedback by UserVoice

PowerPoint for the web

Welcome to the web version of PowerPoint's feedback forum! We love hearing from our customers . This is the place for users to send us suggestions and ideas on how to improve. To help us build the best version of PowerPoint ever, we have partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to create this site to hear your ideas and suggestions. Your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy,including the license terms. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas,copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

🛠 🐞If you think you have found a bug, please send us feedback in-app instead! To do so, please click “Help Improve Office” in the bottom right corner of your web browser, then “I don’t like something” within the PowerPoint window. This way, we will get detailed information that will help us better diagnose the problem. 🐞 🛠

  1. 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).

  2. Slide Master

    In Microsoft PowerPoint, you have Slide Masters so you do not have to do the same thing on every slide but in PowerPoint online, you have to do the same thing on every slide and it just wastes time when you do that so there should be Slide Master on Online PowerPoint and not just on PowerPoint.

  6. Dark Mode for Office Online

    On the desktop office 365, there is a dark mode. This is absent from the online version which I need for the real-time collaboration.

  8. Copy text from picture (like OneNote)

    This has already been developed for OneNote, it is called "Copy Text from Picture". You can paste a picture with text in any OneNote page, right click on it, and there is the option to Copy the text. Then it is available in the clipboard. It is the fastest simplest most efficient OCR I've ever used. It should be made available in PowerPoint, actually, any MS Office product out of the box

  10. Allow to "follow" a document from within the document

    Allow to "follow" a document from within the document without having to navigate a lot to get to the site library. Especially as with the new Sharepoint UI you often arrive at a result list without ellipsis and can't follow there either. Most of the time you have to look into the document to see its contents to decide on the "following"

  11. Bring back scroll bar arrows at bottom right side of screen like Office 2011 for Mac

    It's very difficult to navigate large documents without scroll bars - especially for long timer Mac office users who have become accustomed to this built in too..

  15. Improve low-res images with advanced scaling approaches like waifu2x

    There are new scaling approaches like waifu2x that can do an unbelievably good job scale an image by 2-4x typically with little to no artifacts. I do it all the time using command-line or online tools for presentations. It'd be great if it was integrated in. It really improves the appearance of those low-res images/clipart your co-workers like to use.

  16. Please support WEBM Movie Format with Transparent Background

    HTML5 canvas now supports WEBM movie format, which provides transparent background manageable through CSS.

    Adding full support for the WBEM file format to PowerPoint would not only allow the file content to remain standard, but would provide a method for adding many disconnected layers of composite animation to a slide, thereby producing slides with astonishing content. The only current way, in PowerPoint 2016, to accomplish this is to use Animated GIF, which are limited to 256 colors, and handled as images, so therefore do not have transport controls.

    Thanks in advance!

  17. Search Enhancement (highlighting)

    for powerpoints that allow you to search more than just one slide like "find" does, allowing you to easily find key terms for notes. make it so that it highlights what your looking for and so that it'll bring you to were it uses the term.

  18. Insert your own videos (from disk)

    there should be an area in insert where you can put your own videos in the slide, like the pictures.

  20. Have an Option to remove controls from embed view

    Please provide an option in the PowerPoint Document to disable online viewer controls. We use PowerPoint to create online presentations that we'd like to share publicly, but we do not wish to give our viewers the functionality, or visual clutter, provided by the viewers controls. We'd also prefer to not offer download options in general.
