Automatically advance to next slide after triggered animation
It would be nice to have an option to automatically transition to the next slide after click-triggered animations have played.
It can be done... Just go to Transition Tab, Advance Slide, check the "On Mouse Click" box and uncheck the "After seconds" box. The only down side is it will require 2 clicks for your slide to advance,1 for you animation and another to move to the next slide

It's insane that this feature doesn't exist. Come on MSFT!
@Sean that works if you don't have an animation that is waiting for a click. For example, I have several items that drop in. then they fade out and one item grows to fill the screen as discussion point #1. Because it could be a 5 min or 10 min discussion, I have it wait for a click. Once it's been clicked, it fades and then it SHOULD go to a no transition change to the identical slide behind it thats bllank and can have another item zoom in This way the title isn't lost.
It would be nice if we could advance slides even if there is an animation playing at that moment
Guys if u want to go to the next slide after the exit animation. Make sure to make the first animation of the first slide start 'after previous'. I have found the damn solution.
There are so many workarounds but how about a simple "Go to slide number" that can be placed in the animation pane sequence. It should be assumed that it will only be required "After Previous".
This is totally ridiculous. In Keynote, this is a single tick in a box that tells it to advance after the last build on the slide. That allows you do do exit animations and then have it go to the next slide with one click.
It is idiocy like this that keeps me on the Mac, Microsoft. Keynote, even after all these years, still blows the doors off of PowerPoint. Why is that?
This is just one of many issues and missing features that make no sense. Don't you want to have the BEST slideware application? Why do you keep foisting this late-90s abomination on us? Catch up.
After the last animation is triggered it immediately disappears, so I am adding an extra small pic as workaround.... After the last animation click all the animated pieces disappear instead of going to the next slide. Fully support this idea and sad to see it is not yet solved after being reported in Feb 2016
I just started using powerpoint for the first time 6 days ago and already I reached the point where I need a slide to advance after playing an exit animation and the only "solution" for this is having a timed slide....no way, not a solution. So here you go PowerPoint team...I'm a brand new user and within 6 days I already "need" to do something in powerpoint that seems automatically intuitive and yet cannot be done
On the slide with the exit animation,
select Slide Show > Slide Transition
Near the bottom, under Advance slide,
check the option for Automatically after... (you can set a delay here
if you wish)
Select Slide Show > Set Up Show and under Advance Slides, check the
option for Use timings, if present.

Tried Daniel Bayat's solution - worked wonders.
This is crazy. It's May 2018 and there is still no solution to automatically advancing to the next slide automatically after an animation runs (Mac). And yes people I know I can make it advance after x seconds but that's not what I'm after. I need it to advance automatically after an animation.

Duplicating the slides in order to have an automatic transition after an animation is a real pain. Come on Microsoft, fix this bug.
I need to have a display where when animation of first slide is done, i need the to go to second slide automatically.
I cannot believe Power Point has overlooked this basic requirement.
My work around was to create a hyperlink instead of using the trigger to advance to the next slide.
Seems this is a bug - because last bullet on this page suggests it should work: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Set-the-speed-and-timing-of-transitions-3e7265da-be4f-4fd7-b640-905c8b5a3514 however it doesn't because the animation and slide auto advance instead of waiting for the mouseclick to start the animation and then the slide advancement. So, am I reading this the same as others and this is a bug and not performing as described it should?
Can't believe this is not possible yet. They are working on 3D animations in PPT but they cant add an option to advance slide after triggered animation? Bravo Microsoft! Bravo!
We simply want a way to advance to slide #2 once animation on slide #1 is done. That's it!

John, I fully agree—they really need to fix this. Here's a workaround I found: Duplicate the slide. Set the click on the first slide to advance to next slide after any IN animations, set any OUT animations on the second slide with the transition's After setting and it should work well. The caveat of course is making sure other team members don't delete the duplicate. :) Also, check out the new morph transition. Should really improve our workflows for moments like this!
Sean: make sure you understand the question before assuming we haven't done our research. :) Your suggestion doesn't address the problem John has posed.

Please add the option to set the slide to transition to the next one after an animation. This would allow you to "on click" an animation to occur and then have the slide transition to the next slide right after (or after a delay).
Currently transitions can only be set to "On Click" or after a specific time. You can't have a transition dependent on anything else like after a previous animation.
