  1. Enable "Zoom" (non linear presentations) in PPT Online

    It would be great if you could include Action Buttons or allow links to images or shapes in order to navigate between non-linear slides during playback. For example; from slide 1 click the action button to go to slide 5, click the action button to go back to slide 1, start over, click 'here' to go to slide 3, click here to exit.

  4. Enable laser pointer permanently

    In Set Up Show it would be great to have an option to enable the Laser Pointer (or other pointer options) as soon as a presentation is launched.

    A lot of presenters at conferences want this feature and it is very inconvenient to have to start the pointer manually each time.

  6. Automatically update the date in the footer when changes are made to slides

    Where I work we use PowerPoint Online to keep organizational charts of employees. As people come and go, or change teams, we need to update these charts. It would be handy to have PPO automatically update the date in the footer when changes are made.

  7. Notify me if someone is posting a comment

    In general, during collaborative workflow one will often want to get notified is someone is editing / commenting on a document.

    I would like to see this feature present in PowerPoint and other document types.

  9. Enable the use of connectors

    Currently in Powerpoint online, we cannot use "Connectors" : add an arrow to a slide and connect 2 boxes. This feature is necessary for simple diagrams.

  10. When aligning multiple objects, allow to user to select which object to align to. (e.g. align all objects to the first selected object)

    For example, if I have 3 objects that I want to align to. Right now the align tools, does not allow the user to specify which object to align to. In Keynote, I think you can do this by select the object you want to align to first, and all others will be aligning to this one.

  12. Record audio / timings online.

    I would love to use PowerPoint instead of BrainShark and this could be achieved by allowing audio recording / timings online and for each individual slide at a time. Also in embedded playback to automatically play audio.

  14. Support the change case feature

    There was a simple and easily accessible change case feature in powerpoint prior to 2016. Now its either gone or hidden?

  17. Support More Slide Themes

    Add more themes to be able to make your PowerPoint look better. Even my PowerPoint in Microsoft Office 2010 has more themes than PowerPoint Online. That's pretty bad.

  18. Add WordArt

    WordArt has been a staple in Microsoft Office and appears in every iteration of Office at least since 2000, but oddly doesn't appear in Office Online. Why? Please put it back!
