  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…

  5. Improve picture editing

    Give powerpoint online the same edit tools for pictures like in the desktop application. Students are struggling to use the online version to edit photos such as remove background, recolour, hue, contrast, etc.

  7. Provide ability to change the default fonts for a presentation

    I would like to have a way to select a Theme, but then change the Font for my presentation, and the sizes and have the changes stay each time I add a new slide. This is an issue mainly because there is a basic flaw in conventional presentation design that dictates that the title of a slide should be bigger than the content. But that is actually counter-productive to helping audiences remember the slides.

  9. You can make a thing were you can go and choose anything you need for your powerpoint, Like ideas but something even better.

    Were you can like go on it and like choose really cool (real looking backgrounds) backgrounds, things that you can use on a PowerPoint. Like you'll need to have everything that people look up on ideas, except for bad things. Like on ideas I looked up " My brother Sam is Dead book" and a lot of cars pulled up on it. I really like ideas but I know that you'll will think of something even better.

  10. Ability to add custom set of icons to Power point library.

    Many times we need to use icons that is not available in the standard powerpoint icon library. We can copy paste each single icon from some where to powerpoint but there should be an easy way to to add these icons all together at once to online library or manage them at local library.
    For e.g. If I am developing a presentation on the Azure, Azure icons are not available in the standard icon set. Currently I need to copy icon by icon from web or some other source to power point to use them. If I have a way…

  13. When providing a font error message, listing the offending font in the error message

    We received an error message that states that there are read-only embedded fonts in the document when trying to edit in PowerPoint Online through Teams.

    However, there is no list of what those fonts are. Having them listed will help me resolve my problem.

  14. A standout button that says play slide show

    This would be a simple button that a user could just push to "Present" or start the slideshow. Still keep it in View but also have the option quickly available.

    We have started adding the capability to see who changed what in PowerPoint Online. When you return to a document where collaborators made changes while you were away, you will see a notification as well as some details about what changed. For additional history, you can try the Version History feature under File>Info>Version History. Let us know if this helps!

  17. Ability to embed a protected "PowerPoint Show" file online

    I would like to be able to create using PowerPoint including embedded audio, laser pointer, etc. I can create these files in PowerPoint, and I can protect them so other people can only "read-only". You also already have a "PowerPoint Show" file type which allows them to start in slide show mode. BUT....if I have a protected PowerPoint show file the user cannot view the content unless they have PowerPoint (desktop application)

    So basically you can't embed a PowerPoint show into a webpage. So...we are forced to use a non-Microsoft format (like MPEG-4 Video) so we can post things online.…

  18. Please include the Alignment tools.

    The alignment tools are non-existent in Sharepoint. They are highly useful. Please include them.

  19. Check date against day of the week

    When entering days of the week and calendar dates, have Outlook check the calendar to ensure that the day and date match. For example, if I typed "Tuesday, August 14" have Outlook prompt me, "Did you mean Wednesday, August 14, 2019?"

  20. Outline view on powerpoint online

    Allow for outline view when using powerpoint online. This option does not exist for the online version. This is a problem for Chromebook users and as a student, I use powerpoint outlines a lot. But the online version doesn't have outline view and print, unless I do not know how to find it.
