        • Insert header and footer

          Since I want to work together with other people I use PowerPoint Online. I ran in to a problem with headers and footers on the slides. According to the help you need to copy a textbox onto each slide.
          Why isn't the offline functionality integrated with PowerPoint Online

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Insert Audio and Music

                  We should be able to put music on our powerpoints.

                    • Full Screen Edit Mode

                      You should add a full screen option to PPT online to make it easier to use. By that I mean make the program itself go to the borders of the screen. It is really condensed at the moment and could use a bit of de-condensing

                      • Export all the text in Powerpoint to a word document

                        it would be really useful if there was a shortcut to export the text from Powerpoint to a word document.

                        • It would be great to have the option to put a static grid in the background of slides in Mac PowerPoint!

                          It would make formatting images and figures a lot easier. I don't find the Dynamic guides or the single horizontal/vertical static guides easy to work with. I think this used to be available in PPT and got removed at some point.

                          • 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).

                            • More Animations

                              I am using PowerPoint as a tool to have my students generate custom animations of biological processes. By adding the functionality of custom motion paths, looping and multiple animations per object (vis a vis the animation pane) the online version could better match the desktop version and projects like this could be completed on a wider array of devices, like chromebooks.

                              • Custom Template

                                Is there a way to load a custom template into PowerPoint online? I tried launching a .potx file directly from my onedrive, but it won't let me it edit the file online. The only option is to edit the file in the locally installed version of PowerPoint. It would be nice if PowerPoint online recognized that that a .potx file was launched and automatically created a .pptx file in the main folder of my onedrive. Or, better yet, create a way for admins to upload a .potx file so that it shows up along with the MS default templates when…

                                      I want to be able to move multiple stuff at once instead of moving one thing at a time because it is more time consuming to do that than to just move multiple things at once.
