  1. Embed live tables from Excel Online

    It'd be nice to be able to embed an Excel Online table into a presentation to get the most updated information using both tools.

  2. Real-time updates during slide show

    It would be nice if a presentation that would be up 24/7 would get automatic updates every 1 minute or so. No manual refresh required.

  3. Implement a "Use Math AutoCorrect rules outside of math regions" option in all versions of PowerPoint (exactly what MS Word has)

    Implement a "Use Math AutoCorrect rules outside of math regions" option in PowerPoint (exactly what MS Word has). This would make it significantly faster and more intuitive to include Greek letters, symbols, and irregular math functions in a PowerPoint slide, without requiring any extra mouse clicks.
    This capability is already in MS Word and is a real time saver for those in technical fields.

  4. 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

  6. Allow to download files larger than 2048 MB

    When opening a PPT file link shared in OneDrive, OneDrive will try to open it with PowerPoint Online. If the shared file is larger than 2048 MB, PPO will show an error message declaring that it cannot be opened in PPO. However, the error message cannot be closed and therefore the File menu for downloading the document to computer is not accessible.
    This happens even if the downloading is allowed during sharing.

    A workaround is to include a "download=1" parameter in the URL manually but this is far from convenient since the first link sent automatically during sharing is not…

  8. Rotate Image inside shape

    There is a fundamental issue in powerpoint: If you try to flip an image inside a shape, you can't flip it without affecting the shape as well.

    It is a major problem for a Graphic Designer like myself!

  9. Copy picture to other program

    I want to copy a picture from PowerPoint Online to Paint, but nothing happens when I do. Copying the picture within PowerPoint works.

  11. Allow paste text with formatting

    I suggest to allow for pasting with original formatting. This is helpful if one wants to present source code.

  12. retrieve changes made by other people despite how long ago it was.

    when multiple work on the presentation its easy to miss things and easily delete things. it will be good to be able to go back and retrieve things from previous saves so work doesn't get lost.

  13. Create a color blind viewing tool

    Be able to see what people who suffer from color blindness see when presenting to them. For example, my friend cannot tell the difference between blues and greens. I would like to specify the colors someone struggles to differentiate and "see" the presentation how they see it.

    Hello,

    Thank you for submitting this suggestion. We at PowerPoint strive to be inclusive of all users. As such, we have a few options to help your friend. First, high-contrast mode. Your friend can use the high-contrast settings in Windows to help him or her see everything better. Then he or she can use PowerPoint Online on Edge to see all the slides in high-contrast. In addition, when you or your colleagues are making presentations, you can take steps to ensure that the content is friendlier to those with color vision challenges. To do this, go to Review>Check Accessibility. This tool will give you guidance as to how to ensure your content is usable for people of all abilities.

  14. Allow to view the file in a Pdf without downloading it

    Next to the Download as PDF button make a button that says View as PDF so people can view the PDF without having to Download it to their device first. They can just view it straight from the browser.

  17. Split screen while playing PowerPoint Slide Show

    I would like to run a PowerPoint slide show in split screen mode, so that the PowerPoint slide show can be viewed in one screen (instead of automatically taking over the entire screen), while a related worksheet can be answered in a screen immediately next to it.

  18. Background Removal for Images

    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.
