  1. Track Activities of Other People

    PowerPoint Online Tracking and Analytics Capabilities

    I would love to share a PowerPoint Document with a client and be able to answer a few questions right off the bat like, did they open it? How long did they stay on a specific slide? Did they download it, print it or share it forward? We can do this starting with PowerPoint Online and ultimately with the entire Suite as a whole.

    We can use this information to improve how we present to them in the future.

    • Add more communication to WOPI Power Point postMessage protocol

      Currently, PowerPoint Online embedded through WOPI offers really small amount of communication between iframe and main sirte where iframe is embedded. It would be really good that js postMessage from WOPI PowerPoint iframe sends messages like 'UI_CurrentSlide', 'UI_FullScreen', and receives messages lie 'GoNextSlide', 'GoPreviousSlide', 'StartPresentation', 'GoFullScreen' and similar. I think this would greatly improve embedding PowerPoint Online into other sites.

        • Smart Lookup

          Please include the Smart Lookup feature that is available with the desktop version; in the Online version. This would be great for looking up facts and images without having to leave the presentation.

          • Import/Export Keynote presentations

            Allow importing/exporting of Keynote presentations into PowerPoint. Keynote has done this for years. It would be nice if it was reciprocal.

              • Right-click to SAVE specific graphic image as .PNG or .JPG

                This is an extremely useful feature when using PowerPoint to mash-up and label images for use in another application (e.g. making online learning objects within a LMS).

                  • 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.

                    • Add more SmartArts

                      One day I wanted to make my own family tree using SmartArt, but I couldn't add anymore boxes with lines to show who was related to who. I would also like if you could add a title (that you can delete) along with the text, so I could say the person's name and in the text, I could put their information in it (birth, education, relation to me, etc.).

                      • A Layout that just contains a Textbox

                        you should add a layout where you could just type and that's it just a layout for texts

                            They should be an easy way to erase formatting like in the full fledged PowerPoint.

                                      • Shared Presentation Screen (ie, Present Online)

                                        it's really helpful to allow a user to share a presentation with other people and then start presenting that to them. for instance it can synchronize current slide or laser position. combine it with Skype for a full presentation(with audio).

                                          Now we have two types of links first for "view only" and second for "edit".
                                          It is useful to create "comment only" link, like in google drive.
                                          So someone with this link can view file, can't edit, but can comment file throw default review and comments options.
