  1. Doing track changes (esp offline) similar to the MS Word feature

    Add a full blown track changes feature in PPT that behaves just like the track changes features in Microsoft Word. It will also be great if we can do it offline i.e. not using SharePoint or OneDrive all the time.

        From the comments, this request is largely about playing music while working on your PowerPoint decks. We have no plans to do this – music apps and services already do a great job at this. We do have an active item to insert music and audio which we are taking under consideration.

          • Support desktop features online

            I imagine with the ever-advancing technology we have today that it shouldn't be very difficult to make the online PowerPoint a little more advanced, like the downloadable software is. Simple things like more fonts, music input, a broader variety of transition and animation options, and especially the option to play the PowerPoint all the way through without having to click through it would all be so helpful!!

                  • Add a SAVE BUTTON

                    I want you to add a save button because It was atomatically saving but it never stopped so it wouldn't save.

                            • Add a countdown timer

                              I would love to be able to insert a countdown timer on my slide. During training sessions I'd like to have a timer so that my participants know how long they can work on an assignment.

                              Something examples:
                              http://www.online-stopwatch.com/countdown/.
