  1. 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…

    • Add the tool to remove the background of an image in Power Point ONLINE

      The desktop and Mac versions of Powerpoint have the tool to remove the background of an image, but the Online version does not have this tool. Why not add it? It is very easy to use, and very useful.

      • Make it so GIF files can play.

        It would be good if GIF files can play in online presentations.

        • Please add the ‘group’ and ‘ungrouping’ function onto PowerPoint Online

          Online or through teams, it will not allow us to edit contents if they are ‘grouped’ together.
          We have to open up the file in the PowerPoint App which hinders the ability to co-author in order to edit that section.
           
          Ideally, hoping you could connect with our representative and suggest they add the ‘group’ and ‘ungrouping’ function onto PowerPoint Online.

          • ToDo: Make a sticky note.

            Have you ever wanted to note down something that you will do on the Power Point later, and you know that you'll forget what you need to do when you come back to do it? Well if so then vote me so that wont happen, and if there's anybody else who has already posted this idea then vote for them too.

              • Can you make an "after previous" option for animations?

                When you make an animation, there is an option to make it after previous or after transition.

                    • Allow users to save files back to google drive.

                      Allow users to save files back to google drive. Opening files from g-drive seems to work. However to avoid getting multiple versions in different drives (dropbox, google drive, OneDrive etc.) it would be most helpful to have the ability to store it back where i keep the files, in this case on G-drive.

                          • Insert slide number - Automatically show the total number of slides

                            PowerPoint allows me to insert slide numbers. I'd like to be able to have it worded as "2 (of 12)", "3 (of 12)", etc.

                              I suggest having a way to add your voice to a presentation like with the desktop application, possibly being able to import sound clips recorded on a phone or usb device

                                We can have a thicker line one the text boxes that goes away during the slide show and so it will be easier to click a text box.
