Microsoft PowerPoint review

If you need to give a professional presentation, Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the best tools for creating visuals for people in attendance.

Pros

1. Various tools: design graphics such as banners, charts, and logos. Calendars, photo albums, screen recordings, and resumes are some of the other applications. 2. Customization in detail 3. It is appropriate for beginners. 4. Simple sharing: Microsoft Office includes tools that enable me to upload my PowerPoint presentation to the cloud.

Cons

The only thing for me: is having too much information on a slide can be overwhelming.

Logiciel de présentation très simple d'utilisation !

Microsoft PowerPoint m'a plusieurs fois sauvé d'un oubli de présentation, belles diapos en quelques minutes et facile à prendre en main, je recommandes plus que jamais ce logiciel !!

Pros

Ce logiciel est plus que rapide à prendre en main ! Je l'ai utilisé pendant toute ma période d'étudiant et c'est encore le cas aujourd'hui ! Les thèmes déjà proposés pour rendre nos diapos plus élégantes sont incroyables, cela nous simplifie la tâche et il est possible d'avoir de beaux rendus très rapidement !

Cons

Le seul et unique défaut à mon sens dans ce logiciel est son prix, même s'il est remisé pour les étudiants, ce qui justifie aussi que Microsoft se soucie de nous, il est compliqué de payer une somme comme celle si pour des étudiants.

Reasons for Switching to Microsoft PowerPoint

J'ai effectué ce changement car selon moi, je trouve PowerPoint bien plus facile à prendre en main

Usefull Tool for all Teachers like me

Very widespread software. The look in the program is very familiar, which helps the user to navigate quickly, despite the changes in newer versions. The main panels are well distributed and work comfortably in the program. Storing the functions in panels gives a tight look and order. One sees exactly what one needs. I use the program to create presentations when I need a little more specific feature.

Pros

I like that the functions are also depicted with icons, which makes the use of the program possible by completely new users. This is also useful for those with experience in the program, because the functions are many and the pictograms are like little jokers for the function itself (you don't have to remember everything). The advantage is that the program has many different functions for creating creative and attention-grabbing content (text in various forms, images, insertion of video and audio).

Cons

The fact that the keyboard shortcuts are not listed. The inability to import gif files into presentations in an easy and convenient way. The disadvantage is that the package is paid. The inability to edit the finished file on devices that do not have the program.

Reasons for Choosing Microsoft PowerPoint

Google Slides - the main features are close to those of the Microsoft product, but logically for an online program, some more specific things are cut. It is convenient for creating fast and decent looking content that is available anytime, anywhere. It is very convenient that people from different places can work on a certain material at the same time.

Missing features and difficult to use

I have been using presentation software since Aldus Persuasion. When Adobe, who Aldus merged with, discontinued Persuasion, I had to switch to the much less capable PowerPoint. Over the years, PowerPoint added in some of the cool features of Persuasion. But it took Microsoft several years to make it work as smoothly as Persuasion and they never got it completely right. But it was the only option, at the time. Eventually, Apple introduced Keynote for Mac, which included most of what had been in Persuasion and much more. It took them a couple of years to get it right. But during that time, they kept adding in new features. The more I used Keynote, the less I liked PowerPoint. Today, I only keep PowerPoint around for opening someone else's PowerPoint files. I have found Keynote to be a far superior product, both in features and ease of use. I can quickly and easily do things in Keynote that totally baffles PowerPoint pros. PowerPoint never was all that good, to begin with. It only stayed around because it was promoted as part of MS Office, to be the "standard." It did get better, over the years. But it still lags far behind Keynote. But if you're not a Mac user, it's your only real choice, since Keynote only works on Mac.

Pros

The only pro that I can think of is that you can open those PowerPoint files that you occasionally get in emails. It's probably quite acceptable for simple slide shows, with simple transitions. But that's where it ends. If you want your presentation to look really professional, this is not the software for you.

Cons

It's far more difficult to do some transitions in PowerPoint than in Keynote for Mac. It's like you're doing things that it was not designed to do. There are also some transitions that I do in Keynote that I have yet to figure out a way to do in PowerPoint. It's just awkward to use. It also requires more steps to do certain things (i.e. you have to apply time-consuming kludges to make certain things work). It's very basic and definitely NOT for professional looking presentations.

Reasons for Choosing Microsoft PowerPoint

I grudgingly chose PowerPoint, because it was the only option, at the time. Shortly after Apple released the second version of Keynote and I realized how much better and easier it was than PowerPoint, I switched to Keynote and have not looked back.

Reasons for Switching to Microsoft PowerPoint

Aldus became part of Adobe and Adobe decided to discontinue Persuasion a few years later. I had no choice. I was like stepping backwards 2 or 3 years. As soon as a better product (Keynote for Mac) became available I bought it and began learning it. The ease of use was way better than Powerpoint and I now use only Keynote. I now use PowerPoint only used for archive files.

Escribir presentaciones con pocos clic y además te diviertes enseñando

En la actualidad, Microsoft PowerPoint es un programa de presentación muy fascinante a pesar de la emergencia de varios otros programas en el mundo. Una de las cualidades más sobresalientes es la facilidad y la rapidez con la que puedes crear tu presentación en este programa, ya sea para que tu mensaje tenga un caracter educativo, de reforzamiento de una idea o para clarificar dudas en alguna información específica. Su uso se adapta fácilmente para cada situación debido a que es un hábito adquirido en las clases de computación, que difícilmente será cambiado por otro programa. Como dicen varios, Microsoft PowerPoint es la "herramienta popular más usada" a la hora de hacer presentaciones. Y con esto lo digo todo.

Pros

Una de las funciones más atrayentes de este software es la facilidad con la que utilizas cada página de presentación, porque uno, dos o tres clic bastan para crearla. Después viene lo más divertido porque empieza lo más fácil del trabajo: -Inserté las fotografías desde mi laptop o desde la web con facilidad. -Los textos y gráficos se disponen automáticamente en un formato claro y de fácil uso. -Uno no puede cometer errores ortográficos con el corrector automático casi siguiéndote los pasos y va alertándote para que escribas con precisión. A todos nos gusta escribir con claridad y sin errores. -El modificar cualquier fuente o cualquier tamaño de fuente es muy atrayente para el que desarrolla su presentación. -Aparte de las funciones de "cortar" y de "pegar" que uno ha aprendido en el uso del Microsoft Word, también es muy importante el uso de "importar" tablas que fue diseñada en este mismo sistema.

Cons

-Sería increíble que PowerPoint asumiera automáticamente que deseo que mis transiciones provengan de la izquierda en lugar de la parte inferior. Nunca utilizó una transición desde abajo. -Aprender las teclas de control permitió que mi trabajo sea mucho más ágil, aunque el encontrar las teclas de método abreviado aún es un desafío para cualquiera. Sería muy útil un método de este tipo, con un menú para usar las teclas adecuadas. -Se debería tener las posibilidades de guardar las presentaciones de PowerPoint en mi laptop y también en OneDrive.

PowerPoint - A tool for helping EL Teachers prepare and EL Students learn

Overall, PowerPoint is the bread and butter of my planning as an English Learner teacher. It is easy enough for students to work within using Office 365 and simple and structured enough for me to plan in. It is the application I use more than any other, and I will continue using it moving forward.

Pros

I love using PowerPoint on a daily basis to plan my lessons using embedded videos and auto, different fonts, easily manipulated informatjon, synced up to OneDrive consistently, and easy to present. I also use the collaboration and connection with OneDrive Assignments and Office 365 to always save my work and also be able to send specific versions of assignments to students by sharing a specific link. It alleviates the pressure of using other softwares and instead allows a consistent and meaningful way to plan and also be consistent as a structure for students to anticipate and comprehend.

Cons

The thing I like least about the software is how easy it is to accidentally manipulate different pieces of informatjon on a PowerPoint slide. Since my students are entering computer users often as well, when I send them a link to collaboratively or independently work on a document, they often accidentally move or delete a text box I was wanting them to work in.

The main show programming bundle

There has not been a solitary day over the most recent 10 years, where a show has been made and Powerpoint isn't utilized. Powerpoint is an extremely incredible programming, and greater part of the associations, schools, understudies, everybody need to figure out how to stay aware of this age. Powerpoint has been basic, and best - it is one of the main thing understudies are educated on PCs and which they need to keep in mind and utilize even in their positions.

Pros

The main star that I can imagine is that you can open those PowerPoint documents that you periodically receive in messages. It's most likely very OK for basic slide shows, with basic changes. Yet, that is the place where it closes. Assuming you need your show to look truly proficient, this isn't the most ideal programming for you.

Cons

At the point when you add an excess of media like sound, and recordings, the PowerPoint will generally turn out to be slow and it makes me anxious, so I need to represent document size not to surpass a specific sum which requires some investment and may not bring out precisely what I needed to bring out in entirety utilizing the show. Too, embedding a video can be made simpler, rather than stacking the whole video into the .pptx document, the product can be made in such a manner the client can reference that video area on the web or locally inside the pc or locally inside the blaze drive so when that slide is reached, the video can stack without dialing the show back, on the grounds that it makes the slides likewise take long to stack.

Simple Powerpoint review

Overall, PowerPoint is the fastest way to create high-quality presentations and templates for videos. PowerPoint is simple and very effective. In the last 10 years, there has not been a single day when a presentation has not been created and PowerPoint has been used. PowerPoint has given me the ability to give presentations to high level management where my presentation is presented in a professional manner and I even have the ability to print out notes to make my presentation smooth and make my business look more professional.

Pros

It is the most professional presentation software that most companies use. Very impressive presentations can be created with this software. With the various built-in features, adding graphical tables, survey results even imported from Microsoft Excel to the presentation slides is very easy with just a few key clicks. Another advantage of the PowerPoint presentation is that unlike an elaborately designed presentation board, changes and updates can be made easily even at the last moment. PPTs can be easily incorporated into other information-sharing software applications.

Cons

There is a danger of forgetting that you yourself are the focus of the presentation. The template library still lacks targeted templates that can be easily transferred to real-life situations. Copying and pasting slides into documents is also problematic. It has occurred that it has taken a while for the customer support team to answer emails or chats. Sometimes I am pressed for time and therefore need quick customer support. In my opinion, some of the functions could be more user-friendly. Inserting a video could be easier.

Easy and Powerful Presentation Product

Overall, I'd say it's an amazing, simple, and useful software solution that has helped me in creating presentations for engineering projects, scientific research, and training courses. The software comes with a variety of features, tools, and ready-to-use templates that may be used for a variety of activities. This product has totally satisfied me, and it is well worth its price, and I would recommend it to my friends.

Pros

I've been using Microsoft PowerPoint for years and it's a great program. It is the best program for making professional presentations, especially the most recent version 2021. The user interface is well-designed and easy to use. Many animations, transition effects, and sound effects are included in the package. The screen video recording is one of the most powerful tools. You can export your work in a variety of formats as well as on a portable drive with Microsoft PowerPoint.

Cons

So far, I haven't found anything I don't like, however, I was looking for more export options, such as converting the project from PowerPoint to Word format (. doc, .docx).

Great tool for presentations

Pros

Powerpoint is an easy to use tool, that is pretty much universal at this point. I use it all the time to create presentations small to large.

Cons

Collaborative tools are limited, and people can only comment on files offline. It does not function as a multi-collaborative system

Microsoft Powerpoint review 2021

My general experience with Powerpoint has been great. It permits me to arrange text and pictures in ways that are outwardly satisfying and that convey data successfully.

Pros

This product is not difficult to utilize and learn. It elevates any presentation you need to make it all the more outwardly engaging and simple to follow.

Cons

There isn't a lot of I don't care for about it aside from the issue of it not being viable with non-Windows software. Mistakes regularly happen that bad documents or the presentation doesn't look as expected.

Simple PowerPoint Review

As an innovator, I use PowerPoint to illustrate problems that exist and how best to solve them, the visuals help improve understanding when I am presenting my work in a boardroom full of executives and as well online through screen sharing these days due to Corona. Listening without seeing makes one not get funding, but the ability to see what I am talking about, makes the listener more captivated, and usually grabs the attention of the executives who usually have a small attention timespan. The time you have to get their attention is very limited, but once you do, you are in business.

Pros

PowerPoint by Microsoft is a wonderful presentation software. It is very easy to manipulate to give you the best outcome as possibly imagined for your presentation. The software's versatility is very impressive due to the fact that you can detail your file with ease, as result of numerous slide templates available both offline and online that make your presentation making a breeze. The program is very user friendly, making it easy to navigate and learn fast. Adding videos, images, audio and designing it to how you like or even imagine is very easy for a beginner and expert too. As a college graduate, PowerPoint gives anybody the ability to be effective and improve learning chances through visual aides, making the presentation a success in whatever topic you may be presenting. You will love the Microsoft PowerPoint, I vehemently recommend purchasing the software to start on the path to great presentations.

Cons

When you add too much media like audio, and videos, the PowerPoint tend to become slow and it makes me impatient, so I have to account for file size not to exceed a certain amount which takes time and may not bring out exactly what I wanted to bring out in totality using the presentation. As well, inserting a video can be made easier, instead of having to load the entire video into the .pptx file, the software can be made in such a way the user can reference that video location on the internet or locally within the pc or locally within the flash drive so that when that slide is reached, the video can load without slowing the presentation down, because it makes the slides also take long to load.

PowerPoint review

My general involvement in PowerPoint has been acceptable. It has unquestionably offered me the chance to do introductions while in school as the educator needed an expert show that streams and gives different understudies the data while utilizing pictures, charts, sound and notes. PowerPoint conveyed that load of positive scenes for me. Expertly PowerPoint has offered me the chance to present to top chairmen where my show is proficient and in any event, being able to print out notes permits my show to stream and gives me a high ground on my business looking and being proficient.

Pros

From an executives perspective, its a breeze to introduce office 365 applications and control access from the online entryway. Establishment is typically done in a sort of 'phantom' mode and requires no contribution from the client which is fabulous for huge organizations. From a client perspective I actually think this is the most easy to understand, instinctive and adaptable show bundle you can get! While different bundles may be free or comparative, they generally appear to be inadequate in usefulness, I've never truly discovered anything I couldn't do in PP for conventional introductions and I think Microsoft have the blend of usefulness versus usability spot on. Everything is spread out well, its simple to duplicate advances and so forth to different slides and on the off chance that you burrow further has the further developed highlights accessible like packaging media into the save record.

Cons

Indeed, even with the most recent rendition, it is feeling the loss of the underneath: 1. It doesn't have drop situation arranged instructional exercises to rapidly instruct how to utilize the new highlights. 2. The layout library actually needs objective situated formats that can be effectively embraced to genuine situations. 3. It's anything but a fast method to vitalize certain symbols or pictures, to make intelligence and commitment during the show, for eg: a pic constantly turning in one corner, or a pic separates into 4 sections, essential gif usefulness on transferred pics would make it look very coal and add reason direction for the crowd during the show. 4. It doesn't have 1-click age of pdf 5. The Design tab, needs topics, they are not great to the present principles. 6. There is no speedy instructional exercise on helpful use-cases utilizing Macros. 7. You can't join information/pics from different sources and advise powerpoint to auto-change/apply a topic and prepare it, for insignificant altering for the last form to be prepared. You actually need to accomplish significant work to get it into the last shape, especially on the off chance that you are gathering information from different sources. 8. Absence of symbols that will show a specific situation - making the show very picture arranged and straightforward.

Power Point Review

My general involvement in Powerpoint has been acceptable. ... Powerpoint offers admittance to an enormous library of configuration layouts and subjects to give your show its own remarkable feel, and the program bunches the absolute most normally utilized orders on lace for speedy access.

Pros

The 15 things that I like the most about this product: Everybody has PPT – It's most likely an effect on your PC. Add visuals with simple picture-altering instruments. Implant and alter video records straightforwardly in your introductions. Rapidly add or record sound and synchronize with your slides. Effectively access your introductions from more areas and on more gadgets. Homeroom preparing is regularly changed over to an online organization – why not keep on utilizing those introductions from the study hall? Use slide segments to explore, put together and print your show. View and alter different introductions independently, one next to the other, or even on isolated screens. Everybody realizes how to utilize it (and in the event that they don't, it's not difficult to learn). Rapidly make content with huge loads of formats, foundations, and shading subjects. Fare your introductions to an assortment of arrangements. Sort out and print your slides all the more successfully. Dazzle your crowd with new changes and improved activities. Effectively repurpose and alter your introductions, again and again. Complete things quicker.

Cons

There's consistently the possibility of running into specialized challenges. Indeed, even educated people can run into show issues when the innovation doesn't fill in as expected. Possibly the PC quits working. Or then again you lose the capacity to your outlet. Or on the other hand, the overhead presentation doesn't work right. This can adjust the positive initial feeling of a show rapidly. 2. Slides with an excessive amount of data on them can get overpowering. Since there are so numerous alternatives that can be remembered for a PowerPoint show, it very well maybe not difficult to get carried away on the number of shadings, sounds, shapes, and different things that can be utilized. By adding to numerous things, you can take away from the data that should be shared. 3. Is anything but a substitute for what a moderator should do. Numerous who use PowerPoint will in general depend on the data on the slide as opposed to giving a learning account. It is not difficult to turn out to be too dependent on this product and fail to remember that there is a real show that should be finished. 4. Expenses are continually progressing. Since it is essential for the Office 365 bundle, you presently don't get a restrictive programming permit for one explicit expense. You should pay a month-to-month or yearly membership cost, which over the long haul can amount to more than what the exclusive permit once advertised. You should likewise download the product to every PC, which

Your workspace to present your daily work to the team

My general opinion is that this software is ideal for those who want to be sure that their presentation will have a good design due to the wide variety of templates that they have prepared for you. And you can be sure that it will look very professional to your school teacher, boss or a group of investors.

Pros

Microsoft PowerPoint is the most complete and simple software to start making presentations, whether for work, school, or projects to present to a group of investors. This is because, for years, it has been the leader and the number 1 option for this type of work, although, for its cost, several presentation software are beginning to emerge, even for free. But what makes this software stand out is that no matter what kind of work you are going to do, the design you want to achieve will always be pleasing to look at. With the different functionalities, it has built-in, adding graphical tables, survey results imported even from its Microsoft Excel sibling to the presentation slide, it is quite easy with just a few simple clicks. Another favorable point is that if you want to add something but you can't find it, you can go directly to a spotlight that is practically at the top right, and just by entering a keyword, you will get the function you want to add to your presentation.

Cons

One of the disadvantages of this software is that over the years, they have added so many features that it is even difficult to find the ones you have used for years and settle for the new ones they have added. On one occasion, my team and I wanted to work on a presentation in real-time, sharing it with collaborators via email, but as soon as everyone had had it, some of them could not edit the document, others got stuck and could not even open the presentation. This was the first time we used this function, and we disliked the way it was configured, we even had to use other software to do the job. That's why even the application becomes a bit slow when you share the presentation with your collaborators, that's why I don't recommend this function so much. It may be that, unlike other presentation software, in order to send your presentations to your collaborators, the file may weigh more than desired, instead in for example a platform that virtually everyone has, Google, they have software identical to this, (which by the way is free, something that students are very grateful) you can practically send it via Google Drive and have it in the cloud, while another team member quietly enters the document and makes some final adjustments for the final presentation.

Power is in your hands

This software is not hard to use even though it could be made easier to use. It is the best option if you can afford it. It has more features than other similar software and you can make more professional presentations with it. It takes time to become a master at it however once you get the hang of it, you will make some really good stuff.

Pros

It is the most professional presentation software that most companies use. Very impressive presentations can be done with this software. Once you learn how to use it time-efficiently, it becomes so much easier to prepare presentations, cool animation, and transitions. You can also do some decent illustrations with PowerPoint. They wouldn't be as good as the ones you would do with proper illustration software however they get the job done.

Cons

Templates are not as appealing as I would expect from a software that I pay this much for. And for some reason, videos sometimes don't work and you have re-insert them. Also, it is pretty difficult to do transitions in some cases which I think should be made easier. Its price is really high compared to other company's products.

Un logiciel de présentation et d'exposé complet

Je dois reconnaitre que j'ai été comblé par PowerPoint au cours de mon cursus et n'a pas cesser de le faire et pour cela je suis très satisfait de son service. Selon quelque constat personnel, je n'ai jamais rencontré de bug, certainement compte tenu du fait qu'il y ait régulièrement de mise à jours, cela apporte un atout de plus pour le logiciel. Pour tous vous projet de présentations et d'exposés, je suis ravi de vous recommander ce logiciel à 100%.

Pros

Pour ma part ce logiciel ma beaucoup surpris de ma manière agréable bien sûr de par sa facilité d'utilisation même en étant un débutant dû au fait des milliers de tutoriels proposés par les utilisateurs en lignes. C'est surprenant toutes les animations que peut faire ce logiciel facilement en créant des dessins animés La version 2019 que j'utilise actuelle contient de nouvelles options permettant d'enregistrer des sons et de faire de dessin m'ont beaucoup aidé dans mes projets. Surtout l'ajout de nouveaux Template me permettent de concevoir des exposés et faire des présentations beaucoup plus rapidement et je gagne énormément de temps en les utilisant. J’ai beaucoup utilisé ce logiciel durant mon cursus, la version étudiante qui est moins me donne envie de dire que l'entreprise se soucis d'une certaine catégorie de personnes et cela me fait beaucoup plaisir.

Cons

Comparativement à son concurrent Google Slide qui est gratuit, je peux me permettre de dire que le cout du logiciel est quand même élevé. C’est vraiment dommage de constater que les meilleurs tutoriels que j'ai vu sur le net notamment sur YouTube sont la plupart proposés des utilisateurs et non de l'entreprise. J’aurai pu gagner en temps si l'entreprise avait détaillé clairement certaines fonctionnalités dans les tutoriels Microsoft que j'ai passé des heures à chercher et à trouver sur internet, dommage.

PowerPoint Review

Having worked for both big and small businesses and small groups, I've realized that there are a few things I've learned which apply equally well to both. This product has worked successfully for me for the last year and a half. I have not heard of someone not being able to access a presentation file. The commitment in time and resources one put into a project needs to achieve some return.

Pros

I always like PowerPoint when it comes to meetings since it is a simple and straightforward method to follow. Without a doubt, in PowerPoint, you should believe that you will not encounter a possible customer or location that will not be able to use whatever creation you make for it. It's also very versatile, which allows its users' additional capabilities, including slideshows, the flexibility to perform various tasks. Anyone in the organization can supply content, photographs, embeddable polling, and videos.

Cons

PowerPoint has its own peculiarities, just as other Microsoft products do. While some of the demonstration systems are more user-friendly, the more complex they are, the more satisfying they are. Although certain types of drawing are important for the production of unique artwork, it is not always desirable to produce copies, particularly when trying to create something from scratch. You should create the images yourself in Illustrator or something similar, and then upload them to PowerPoint to get the quality you don't get in the presentation files.

Power Point Review

For me, PowerPoint is the fastest way to create high-quality presentations and templates for video sales letters. With Power Point as a basis, screen capture videos can also be created with video software. I use this for my online courses with great success. Thank you Microsoft.

Pros

On the one hand, it is of course easiest to transport a presentation when it is available in digital form. In the same way as e-books or e-mails, you are also more environmentally friendly due to the low paper consumption. The presentation also has some advantages for the lecture itself. The digital processing of the presentation requires a certain structure and organization of the lecture, since only one topic should be addressed on each slide. In addition, PowerPoint offers good support if you forget what should be addressed next If used correctly, the graphic support should also be the only task of the Powerpoint presentation. The graphic support gives you the opportunity to attract everyone's attention rather than just speaking freely. Another advantage of the Powerpoint presentation is that changes and updates can still be carried out without any problems even at the last moment, in contrast to an elaborately designed presentation board.

Cons

There is a high risk of forgetting that you are the focus of your presentation. It can happen that you rely too much on your presentation and forget your own posture and articulation. In addition, to a certain extent it is always a bit tricky to have to rely on technology. If it also has many advantages, you will be pretty smeared if it fails. The same applies to incorrect handling of the program. Because some people don't know how to use PowerPoint and incorporate so many special effects into their lecture that the audience hardly knows what it's actually about. Because of this, high quality knowledge of the program is necessary if you intend to use it. Amateur handling is the reason why PowerPoint today often has a negative connotation.

A complete and easy to use software

As a student, this software continues to help and satisfy me almost all the time! I am really satisfied with it. The regular updates bring a big advantage to the software and allows it to stand out from the other competitors. I really recommend this software for lectures, presentations, videos on the internet, Youtube but also for people working in the computer field.

Pros

Even for beginners, this software is very easy to use, moreover, nowadays, there are many tutorials that can be found on youtube or on the online support of Microsoft There is a great diversity in the animations and we can now animate images. Being able to draw or record your screen is really a plus on the new versions, it can really help on various projects. The fact that there are more and more animations is a real plus for presentation when you are a student The company also relies on the fact that students need software for their studies and have therefore created a student version that is less expensive, this is a real plus!

Cons

Unfortunately, the price is still quite high compared to other competitors like Open Office or Google slides which are free. Often, the company doesn't give enough advice on how to use the software and that's a shame! (better tutorials can be found on Youtube!) Some features of the software are not highlighted enough and are not detailed in the Microsoft tutorials so you have to search a long time to find an answer.

Powerpoint is awesome with its latest updates for spinning presentations quickly.

Overall experience is good and much better than 2007 version, however there is a lot that remains to be implemented. For example, the theme or template are very fixed, you can't even move the line in the header to adjust it for certain slides.

Pros

1. Ease of use 2. The smart art forms and word art make it very easy to present ideas and their flow. 3. The added screen recording feature, is very useful for creating quick tutorials. 4. Animations and transitions are cool.

Cons

Even with the latest version, it is missing the below: 1. It doesn't have descent scenario oriented tutorials to quickly teach how to use the new features. 2. The template library still lacks goal oriented templates that can be easily adopted to real life scenarios. 3. It doesn't have a quick way to animate certain icons or pictures, to create interactivity and engagement during the presentation, for eg: a pic continuously spinning in one corner, or a pic divides into 4 parts, basic gif functionality on uploaded pics would make it look very coal and add purpose orientation for the audience during the presentation. 4. It doesn't have 1-click generation of pdf 5. The Design tab, lacks themes, they are not awesome to today's standards. 6. There is no quick tutorial on useful use-cases using Macros. 7. You can't combine data/pics from various sources and tell powerpoint to auto-adjust / apply a theme and get it ready, for minimal editing for the final version to be ready. You still need to do substantial work to get it into the final shape, particularly if you are collecting data from various sources. 8. Lack of icons that will show a certain scenario - making the presentation very picture oriented and easy to understand.

Reasons for Choosing Microsoft PowerPoint

Because it is way better and much more functional and easier to use.

Powerpoint is the key to any Organizations success through Groundbreaking Presentations

There has not been a single day in the last 10 years, where a presentation has been created and Powerpoint is not used. Powerpoint is a very powerful software, and majority of the organizations, schools, students, everyone need to learn to keep up with this age. Powerpoint has been simple, and most effective - it is one of the first thing students are taught on computers and which they need to remember and use even in their jobs.

Pros

Very simple - and most widely used to create presentations across all organizations - small, mid tier, enterprise etc. Majority of the features are just drag and drop, efficient to create effective corporate presentations. Animations can be added easily with minimum knowledge. Can create variety of shapes, add many effects. Presenter view gives a very good insight if you are the presentor without disrupting what your audience sees. Can add notes/ comments to any slides as a remark. PPT's can be easily integrated with other applications for information sharing.

Cons

The range of free templates available are very less. Majority of effective powerpoint templates are paid ones. There are several formatting issues - with sizes if you want to re-use a presentation. The designing of slides is still the old school way - you need to start from scratch, there needs to be improvisations and updates to the old way but still keeping things simple. Powerpoint on the web is a little tedious and slow, not as good as Google slides online, but offline mode is not beatable. Copy pasting from slides to documents also gets problematic, specially with tables - there are formatting issues.

Super logiciel très complet qui facilite le travail

J’ai toujours utilisé Power Point avec une grande satisfaction pendant mes études et je continue de l’utiliser dans mon travail avec une grande joie. J’utilise aisément le logiciel et je rencontre rarement des bugs car les mises à jour se font régulièrement de façon automatique et apporte vraiment un plus au logiciel. Je recommande à 100% Power Point pour tout travail d’exposé, de présentation et autre.

Pros

Très facile à utiliser même pour les débutants, c’est un logiciel que j’utilise beaucoup depuis mes études. Je suis passé à la dernière version (version 2019) il y a quelque temps et j’ai particulièrement apprécier le dessin, l’enregistrement de son écran… qui m’ont beaucoup aidé pour mes projets. Grande est ma surprise de voir toutes les animations que l’on peut faire avec ce logiciel : la création de petits dessins animés, la personnalisation de mes animations des diaspositifs. Il y a également plus d’option et de facilité pour la conception des exposés et présentations car je l’avais beaucoup utilisé durant mes études. La version étudiante je l’apprécie beaucoup car déjà c’est moins cher et aussi c’est complet. Cela signifie que Microsoft pense au bien être de toutes les couches sociales.

Cons

L’entreprise ne fournit pas des tutoriels gratuits pouvant permettre aux nouveaux utilisateurs du logiciel de pouvoir s’auto formé, les meilleurs tutoriels aujourd’hui qu’on a sur le logiciel sont seulement fournis par des particuliers par exemple sur YouTube. Le concurrent immédiat de power point : Google Slides est totalement gratuit, en revanche le logiciel reste payant avec un coût un peu élevé.

Power Point Review

My overall experience with PowerPoint has been good. It has definitely given me the opportunity to do presentations while in college as the professor wanted a professional presentation that flows and gives the other students the information while using images, graphs, audio and notes. PowerPoint did deliver all those positive venues for me. Professionally PowerPoint has given me the opportunity to present to top administrators where my presentation is professional and even having the ability to print out notes allows my presentation to flow and gives me an upper hand on my business looking and being professional.

Pros

Power Point is a great presentation software program. It is very easy to manipulate through to give you the best presentation. It is very versatile in that you can detail your file with ease. It offers you numerous slide templates that make whatever presentation you are creating a breeze. The program is quick and easy to navigate through. There is even a note section that can assist you with ease. Putting videos, images, sound and designing the presentation how you like it is very easy for a beginner or even an expert to use. Being a graphic designer as well as a previous student in college, PowerPoint gives anyone the ability to be successful in whatever topic you may be presenting. You will definitely love PowerPoint. I suggest purchasing the software and begin your positive presentation journey today.

Cons

My cons and what I like least about the PowerPoint software program is that the loading of bigger presentations take some time and sometimes it is hard to navigate back to a previous page especially if there are sounds or music attached. But that may have something to do with how the person is and not the software itself. Second, there have been times that it takes a while for customer support to reply to emails or chat. Sometimes I am on time crunch so I need fast customer support. Lastly, the capability to edit the file on a computer that doesn't have the program installed can sometimes be troublesome. But that again could be a simple resolution.

Review of PowerPOint

I use PowerPoint all the time and I find it the most convenient way to make a presentation. It provides a variety of options for presenting (color, visual style, types of presentations such as videos, etc.). It also has improved over the years. For example, allowing the viewer to sound was not available a few years ago.

Pros

The software is very straightforward and easy to use. It is very versatile. You can move slides in any order you would like. It also provides a lot of ways to manipulate the slide visually, such as adding pictures to the entire slide and then showing text, changing the font style of the text, changing the size of the text, and changing the format style of the PowerPoints. I like that you can add your voice to PowerPoint as well. It has become a lot easier over the years (I started doing voice over in 2012). It was a click and go. The viewer is able to listen, stop the recording, and play again when they want to. Inserting weblinks is helpful. I can just click on a word that I have embedded into PowerPoint slide and it goes to the website. I like the ability to insert videos too. The animation is also is nice to have and they have many options (e.g. fly in, fade in, etc.). I think PowerPoints has been a significant program to personalize and make innovative presentations.

Cons

As with all technology, there are a few drawbacks. I think some of the functions have the potential to be more user friendly. Inserting a video could be easier to do. It is difficult to figure out if a link is required. It would be nice to copy and drop a video into the PowerPoints. Also, the weblinks are pretty easy to insert, but when presenting in slide show view, the slides stay up and then the websites show up - but for some reason there are two versions - one in slide show and the other not. It is confusing which version to go back to that everyone can see on the projection screen. Sometimes I go back to what I think is projecting the full screen and it is sill the website or visa versa. It is not real apparent how to make it so that you can see your notes versus not seeing it. In addition, a feature on Zoom would be nice - you can see the notes - but the audience cannot. Also printing out these notes sometimes goes to a second page wasting paper. I think it could read better with things like google docs. It could be google docs, but I have other presenters use voice over and it is difficult/cumbersome for others to listen to and add the voice over - improve readability with other platforms is the suggestion here.

Professional Slideshow presentations in a few clicks

Overall, my experience with Power Point is awesome as I love how it provides an easy way of making my presentations business-like as well as playful and eye catching so that my viewers in my meetings won't fall into a state of boredom. It also has essentials to presenting a well organized data in an interactive format.

Pros

Along with other Microsoft Office tools, I've always relied on this for my presentations during meetings because it is simple to use and is packed with a lot of things for customization. Toying around with the transitions; text effects; slide templates; insertion of audio, video, flash and gif files; and exporting to other formats is very easy to do. I also love how this is not so heavy on RAM especially for me who incorporates a lot of multimedia files to spice up my presentation. The table and chart functions is also a bonus, although adding and finding the symbols can be tedious for those that are not so commonly used. In addition, I find it very convenient to be able to save my own customized template since I give presentations in the office on a weekly or even bi weekly interval and typically use the same ones. There was a time when I was lazy to learn Photoshop and logo creation that I relied on this to composite pictures to create my banners for office use, as well create tarpaulin designs for corporate events and even personal ones such as birthdays and anniversaries; which I think produced a very excellent output.

Cons

The only thing I encountered was with an issue of not having my gif images animate in my presentation. Although it was fixed by adding it again in the presentation, or changing the settings depending on the version because sometimes it doesn't fix the issue. I would go with former to remedy it though.

The program you must have

I would highly recommend this to any financial advisor who wants to present a pre-view of the final product, it is easy to use, it allows you to present graphics that helps you with the presentation and to further understand the products possible results. I use this program since I’m in school, at least 10 years, and this program has had a lot of improvements, which I appreciate, as it has help me developed better as a professional by having better experiences when doing presentations

Pros

Everyone know at or at least have an idea of what is ppt and how to use it. Is the most widely used and available software and it is just as useful in the business world as it is in classrooms. The program has multiple tools and powerfull features that help any type of professional in any circumstance, furthermore, is compatible with the majority of the computers, so the file can be opened in any device and can be connected with other Microsoft programs such as Excel when talking about graphs. It has a wonderful mopbile app that works very well and allows to edit your work anywhere, not necessarily with a computer.

Cons

The final file of PPT is lo large, which complicates the process of sending it through email, and in some cases, to even open the file. Furthermore, the app doesn’t help you with a color pallet, and in so many cases templates are way to repeated, instead of providing options considering the background of the user. The special effects are, in my opinion a distraction from the purpose of the presentations. One of the flaws this program has, is that when working with vectorial images, which are the most used currently to have a better quality, it doesn’t have the capacity to groupe all the pieces together, so every time you want to move or adjust the image, you have to select every piece to move it properly.

PowerPoint Review

I have been using this software for a couple years now for my work. I create presentations with it every week and have been using it for making product reviews. I have not come across a software that's easier to use while having as much functions. Using PowerPoint has always been a truly positive experience and I would like to suggest PowerPoint to anybody who is willing to form astounding presentations.

Pros

I personally find PowerPoint easy to use for inexperienced users and essential for clients. Utilizing the accessible well drafted samples for designing an excellent end product is simple and fast. It goes as easy as essentially including a few pictures and information inside the system based on the chosen format. As for progressed clients which are generally within the corporate industry and workers utilizing the program routinely, they can make exceptional introductions by consolidating recordings, music and a few animations. The leading portion is that there are a lot of ways to send your made presentations to which you'll be able effortlessly send as an email connection and download a duplicate of it or transfer it in your cloud capacity so simply can have get to to your introductions wherever you want.

Cons

Whereas PowerPoint can effectively consolidate recordings within the presentation, there are a few challenges when it comes to inserting videos. You'll notice once you attempt to embed a large video within the presentation. In spite of the fact that there's an alternative to compress the video record within within the application, you'll have to be have a good computer setup to make it run is smoothly within the framework. Besides, PowerPoint still needs the capacity to specifically distribute your work online like YouTube, Facebook and sharing social media channels. You'll have to have a few specialized abilities to go through the fundamental steps in sharing your introductions on these sort of media channels.

Microsoft PowerPoint has changed my life.

I have been using Microsoft PowerPoint for a very long time, and owe a lot of my success in life to PowerPoint. It started when I was in middle school and my father came home from work with a brand new MacBook with PowerPoint installed (back when Apple first introduced them). My three younger siblings and I would make hilarious PowerPoints and present them to our parents at dinner time. I'll never forget how we made one about my father, who wished he was a NASCAR driver and drove like one on every road trip we took. So we animated images of us in the back seat holding on for dear life in our family minivan racing across each slide of the PowerPoint. I remember being young and in awe of how well you could manipulate images and text. Thus started a beautiful relationship with PowerPoint. From helping me graduate high school and college, to helping me run my own sales office, to now helping me work with companies across the country, PowerPoint has been with me through it all. It's easy to use (my siblings were 8 years old and younger when they helped make the racecar presentation). And you can customize your presentations any which way. PowerPoint is one of the tools I've relied on the most for well over a decade. It's not often you can say a software program reminds you of great times with your family. Thank you Microsoft.

Pros

PowerPoint is my favorite Microsoft program. What do I like most? All of it. More specifically, I've recently come to love the Slide Master feature which allows you to edit the formatting of every slide in the presentation with ease. Instead of editing each individual slide, you can just edit all the slides at once through View --> Slide Master. I just love how much you can customize your presentations. There's a lot PowerPoint has to offer. The good news is that you don't have to learn every function to make a quick, great presentation, but I do recommend exploring every tab because there is a LOT PowerPoint can help you accomplish.

Cons

I don't have any cons. It just takes some time to really learn all the functions. Luckily, the help features and the help you can find online are great whenever you find yourself stuck.

PowerPoint and Education Online

Overall I am very pleased to have been able to use PowerPoint over the years. Having started with earlier versions years back it has actually been quite easy to adapt to newer versions as they are released. I have been able to edit and re-use materials, making use of updated features. This adds a real shine to my earlier produced slide sets.

Pros

Powerpoint offers the opportunity for educators to adapt and add to existing classroom coursebook materials and activities. Once users have learnt the basics it is possible to make engaging materials that are both audibly and visually engaging. This can be done through the easy ability to insert an audio or video clip into a slide set, in addition to (inserting) pictures and the use of a variety of colours of texts and backgrounds. Once a user has made a PowerPoint slide set it can be easily used a slide show presentation as part of a classroom-based or online lesson. Slide sets are easily made available to peers and students through attachment to email or online platforms and can be set to play purely as a presentation by the viewer without the ability to edit if desired. I have successfully used PowerPoint projected on a whiteboard in the physical classroom and also as a base for lessons online using various conferencing platforms.

Cons

Although a PowerPoint slide set is very useful as a document that can be used repeatedly for lessons, if an educator is using PowerPoint in 'presentation' mode it is quite fiddly to try and edit the content on a page. An example of when this might be desirable is if the user wants to add something or correct and error. As it is necessary to use the presentation mode to make any animations effective for the viewer, say layering of pictures introduced one at a time over each other on the same slide, going out of this (presentation) mode in front of learners online stops the presentation and thus the flow of a lesson. The price point of PowerPoint may also be an issue for some educators depending on whether they are having to pay for individual access or are covered as part of a school paid group license.

Un logiciel très accessible et idéal pour un travail efficace

PowerPoint est un outil ayant énormément répondu à mes attentes pour la présentation de différents travaux au cours de mes études. Pour mon travail actuel, il continue de me satisfaire. J’ai rencontré très rarement des bugs et je recommande vivement ce logiciel pour la réalisation d’exposé, de rapport, de présentation de projet ou pour des vidéos sur internet.

Pros

J’apprécie l’ensemble des fonctionnalités qui sont représentées par des icônes. L’utilisation du programme est simple même pour les tout nouveaux utilisateurs. Grâce à des tutoriels proposés par le support en ligne, la formation et la prise en main du logiciel sont rapide. Le programme dispose de nombreux menus pour créer un contenu accrocheur et percutant (avec de nombreux templates de conception et présentation). La dernière version que je possède (version 2019) m’a aidé sur différents projets pendant mes études.

Cons

Je trouve dommage que tous les raccourcis clavier ne soient pas répertoriés. L’impossibilité d’importation de fichiers gif de manière simple et efficace est également un défaut. Il peut également entraîner de la nonchalance lorsqu’il s’agit de faire des présentations. Lorsqu’on représente une entreprise où qu’on enseigne un sujet, il est important de ne pas trop se reposer dessus. Le diaporama doit rester avant tout un support. Autre point négatif, son prix. Ce dernier est assez élevé si on le compare à son concurrent direct Google Slide qui lui est 100% gratuit. J’aurais préféré l’acheter séparément les produits Microsoft au lieu d’un package coûteux.

Software that you cannot outgrow

Powerpoint is simply the best way to explain concepts. These concepts can be presented in a simple manner, with just bullets points and a few pictures, or with surprising levels of complexity when animations or video content are integrated into the slides. It is easy to start using, with minimal knowledge, yet fully customizable such that the product capabilities continue to grow with your knowledge; after using Powerpoint for over 15 years, I am STILL discovering new tricks and features.

Pros

One of my favorite capabilities is the ability to customize my toolbar, so that all of the features that I personally use are available at my fingertips. Additionally, the embedded narration feature that allows you to pre-record a presentation and export it as a video makes e-learning easy.

Cons

If you know all of the tricks in Powerpoint, there are very few tasks that will stump you. Unfortunately, it does take a long time to learn the software inside and out, and during that learning period, you may struggle to complete tasks simply because you do not understand the "correct" or "easy" way to do them. After years of working with the software, I do have a few complaints that remain: (1) Slide masters are not intuitive to customize nor master; (2) it is not possible to paste content on multiple slides simultaneously (for instance, if you wanted a picture at the same place on 5 slides... and yes, you can duplicate the 1st slide 5x but there are times where this is not the most direct route to doing what you want to do); (3) there is no way to easily assign existing content to a placeholder (meaning, if existing text should be the slide title, it cannot be right clicked and assigned as TITLE, instead it must be copied and pasted into the title placeholder box... very annoying)

Microsoft Power Point Review

My general involvement in PowerPoint has been a decent one. Its convenience and the advantages it brings to one for introducing imperative data have been colossal to me I would prescribe everybody to utilize this incredible asset since it is viable and not hard to utilize. You can utilize PowerPoint to make any sort of introduction for any occasion or crowd Whatever you are wanting to use for school, college, business, teaching...Etc. this product is an extraordinary decision for everybody, and it will save you a ton of time and a migraine by making basic and truly very much planned introductions and you will stand out enough to be noticed while introducing it PowerPoint is the ideal programming if you needed to share information present a business thought, or anything wherever in a straightforward and stylish manner. We love using PowerPoint

Pros

PowerPoint is so much fun and simple to work with. I love all the highlights and capacities The highlights and usefulness in PowerPoint are far more noteworthy and more grounded than contenders like google slides. Making an introduction just takes minutes due to how simple the instrument is to learn and utilize I utilized Microsoft PowerPoint for the pitch deck, deals introduction, GIF recordings, and featured discussions. Despite the fact that you have plenty of different choices in the commercial center this Microsoft item offers the best last plans and movement highlights Microsoft PowerPoint is the default exemplary that everybody has consistently utilized. You can anticipate that individuals should realize how to utilize it and how to open the .ppt documents. It's likewise moderately simple to utilize

Cons

The thing I like the most un-about this product is the number of various regions there are all through the application. It tends to be hard to explore when initially starting to utilize it Powerpoint controls for graphs and shapes are somewhat finicky. When utilizing the diagramming wizard, there are numerous perplexing little advances you should recall to create a suitable outline PowerPoint can set aside some effort to learn in the event that you are new to making introductions. You can rapidly figure out how to make a slide, however, it may take some effort to gain proficiency with all the devices on the off chance that you are new to Microsoft.

Un logiciel très complet et agréable pour travailler

PowerPoint a toujours su combler mes besoins pendant mes études et il continue de le faire maintenant sur ma chaîne YouTube, j’en suis très satisfait. Les mises à jour sont assez régulières et apportent un vrai plus au logiciel et je n’ai que très rarement rencontré des bugs donc pour résumer je recommande à 100% ce logiciel pour tout exposé, présentation et bien sûr vidéos sur internet.

Pros

Ce logiciel est très facile à utiliser même si on est débutant, surtout avec tous les tutoriels qui sont proposés par le support en ligne. J’ai été agréablement surpris de toutes les animations que l’on peut faire avec ce logiciel, notamment la création de petits dessins animés. Les options comme le dessin ou l’enregistrement de son écran ont été les bienvenues sur la dernière version que je possède (version 2019) et m’ont aidé sur plusieurs projets. J’aime également le fait qu’il y ait de plus en plus de templates pour la conception des exposé et présentations (je l’ai ai beaucoup utilisés pendant mes études). Le fait qu’il y ait une version étudiante moins chère permet de voir que l’entreprise se soucie de nous et cela fait plaisir.

Cons

Le prix reste quand même assez élevé comparé à son concurrent direct qui est Google Slides et qui est lui 100% gratuit. Je trouve cela dommage que les meilleurs tutoriels que j’ai trouvé sont ceux faits par des utilisateurs sur Youtube par exemple, et pas directement par l’entreprise. J’ai découvert plusieurs fonctionnalité en cherchant pendant des heures sur internet alors qu’elles auraient pu être détaillées dans les tutoriels Microsoft.

Power Point Review

My overall experience with PowerPoint has been a good one. Its ease of use and the benefits it brings to one for presenting vital information have been enormous to me. Using PowerPoint has put me at ease when analyzing availability, analyzing technological compatibilities, and organizing my information in a PowerPoint Presentation. While getting the added benefit of making one look good in the process of presenting information and engaging an audience.

Pros

Like:I like PowerPoint because It is easy to navigate, makes organizing information easy and helps me to present information visually aesthetic to my audience. It helps me relax, organize my thoughts, focus on the presentation and ultimately makes me look so good. Also, I like that It is a popular software and widely commercially available and a widely globally distributed technology. For example one benefit like that makes that any PP File can be sent and interchanged over the network with any user and computer operating system. PowerPoint Software is now installed on many computers operating system’s and has evolved to the point that one does not have to worry about compatibility issues. Just point and click to send a file to someone else. The software, PP, also can interchange data between various other computer applications. To name some of them: excel, word, and other msMicrosoft Office Suite Applications. The software also supports and can interchange data with other widely used software applications to create beautiful effective presentation slides. The software handles video, graphics and many embedded objects like graphs to name one EO. The ease of use gives the user control of not only a large information pool, but also keeps one well organized, imputing the presentation materials into one file on PP. Lastly, it also helps to engage the audience visually making the presenter look good using a PP creation .

Cons

I don’t like that there are thousands of functions that can be used to jazz up the presentation. To much variety can sometimes be a bad thing. For example, there are a lot of PowerPoint Templates available for a creator to use. Also, the app incorporates a lot of technology that allows for embedded coding that produces animations and the like. Those special affects can sometimes take away from the focus or purpose of the presentation. That is, the effects out do the presenters main message. Lastly, the file size may get to big and make it difficult to send over the network to some ones email.

Authoring tool of choice, eLearning or Presenting

My roles within many companies has meant that I have had occasion to use PowerPoint in almost every way that it was designed for and in some cases not designed for. Does it do everything a professional design tool can, (like Photoshop, illustrator, etc.), no it does not, but it is one heck of an authoring tool for creating visual aids for presentations, reports, posters, videos, animations and eLearning. In my humble opinion the bad press that PowerPoint gets is much more about the User ability than the tool itself. My first recommendation to anyone using PowerPoint is, learn how to think visually first. Visual aids should help the audience, not an autocue for the speaker. The second recommendation is that you should always add speaker notes, besides being a good discipline for speaking, it means that you can distribute your slide decks in a way that makes sense to the reader and if it is a course your notes can server as the narrative for eLearning conversion.

Pros

I was once asked at a learning conference, "what makes someone a Subject Matter Expert?" My answer was simple, as a SME you have learned what you can get away with not doing, in other words been there done that. PowerPoint falls into this category, it has been around forever and adopted best practices from the industries it serves. It does not do things to the level that other professional tools do, but then it doesn't need to and I ceratainly have gone past worriying what I can't do and focus on what I can do in the tool. It is feature rich in many areas, not that many users know what these are, but it covers most bases from Templates and styles to design tools and idea generation. The graphic tools and functions are easy to understand and the animation features makes it simple to create professional looking animations. The selection pane is a godsend when working with many latered slide. The Add-ins feature is great for creating things like Word-clouds, especially when trying to get demographic messages across. As far as I am concerned when developing eLearning content it is difficult to see any eLearning specific tools match the authoring capability of PowerPoint, the key is to ensure the conversion tool can convert all the features in PowerPoint to HTML5. This gives you future proof content that anybody can edit, not just a software savvy developer!

Cons

There are only a few niggles (wishes) that I would note about PowerPoint and these might not even be something users would come across, it will be easier just to list these in the hope that oneday Microsoft might read this review and take note: 1. Enable drawing with bezier curves, rather than clicking points and editing them afterwards. 2. Allow all animation rows to be moved together (avoid having to step out each one by half a second!) 3. Enable straight line to be changed to multi-point line (so you can curve it) 4. It would be good if you could track changes like in Word, especially when sharing with a client to edit. 5. Exporting speakers notes without slides would be useful. 6. When exporting to Word it is a pain that each slide thumbnail is the whole presentation (makes it a massive Word file). The last thing is a double edged sword, is it is too easy to use, so everybody things the software will make their presentation look good, not the case, you have to think about it!

With PowerPoint anyone can create stunning presentations

When collaborating with someone on a presentation, or when someone else is creating slides for you, it is very often necessary to give or provide some feedback. This feedback can be provided by editing the slide directly, but then all changes made are lost. If you want to give your opinion without direct changes, you can use the comments. A comment is a note that can be attached to any slide or part of it. PowerPoint 2010 and 2013 have this capability and it is a great way to share feedback with everyone else working on that presentation. Once you've added a comment, you can easily edit or reply to it later. The option to insert comments exists in both Excel and Word, but few people know about this option in PowerPoint. To insert comments, you need to go to Review, and there you will find the option to insert comments. You can also view the comments one by one by clicking the back and forth buttons. Finally, you can delete all comments by clicking Delete, where you choose the option to delete all comments from the entire presentation or from just one slide.

Pros

Microsoft Office PowerPoint is a presentation program and is part of the Microsoft Office suite. PowerPoint is one of the simplest computer programs. It is just as useful in the business world as it is in classrooms, and is the most widespread tool for making presentations. Anyone can create stunning presentations that look like they were designed by professionals. With it, you can quickly and easily design and create various presentation materials according to your own needs, be it on-screen presentation, web presentation, projection foils, accompanying brochures… PowerPoint presentations consist of the number of individual pages or "slides". Slides can contain text, images, animation, sound and other objects, which can be freely edited. By combining texts, tables, graphs, illustrations, videos and sound recordings into a meaningful whole, you come to an effective presentation. In that way, you create a powerful tool with which you transfer information and ideas much faster and with better quality.

Cons

1.It’s not the software itself but rather the way many people use it, their eyes locked on their presentation unfortunately. 2.Lack of possibilities, in fact, I use PowerPoint only for making presentations. And also surely the price which remains high if you are not a student. 3.The weak point, however, is that there should be more choice between different models.

The Best Professional Presentation Software in The Market

Powerpoint is an Amazing software and I recommend it for everyone who us looking for professional and affordable presentation software. Whatever you are planning to use for school, university, business, teaching...Etc. this software is a great choice for everyone, and it will save you a lot of time and a headache by creating simple and really well-designed presentations and you will definitely get attention when presenting it. I really love it and love all the features and the Microsoft team is doing an amazing job with every version we get and I really feel the change every time. I will keep using it for my personal and my business projects and I will keep recommending it to everyone.

Pros

I like it because It's very simple to use and everything you need you will find in the toolbar. Great value for the price I use it for my personal projects and for my Business presentations and I have used it for University projects too and I never had any problem. I really like the animation and the transitions library. I also, use it to convert my presentation to animated videos by saving them as an MP4 file. I also, use it to convert my presentation to images and to PDF files. Their Mobile app is great, and no need to take your laptop or pc with you and, you can just connect your phone to a TV or Data show and play the Slideshow from your phone. It allows me to insert images and videos and audio files and add them to my presentation and also, I can add links and I can click on them to redirect me without closing the slideshow. They have a lot of templates, and you will find exactly what you are looking for and you don't need to create a presentation it's very simple and you can just change the text and you are ready to go. I really like the crop option inside PowerPoint because I don't need to use image-editing software to edit my images and I like the image effects too. The best thing about PowerPoint is you really don't need an internet connection to open .ppt files. I like the integration with other Microsoft software like word and excel for example.

Cons

I really never had any problem with PowerPoint and I have been using it since high school and I did a lot of projects on it. But, they can add more templates to cover other topics. and they also can improve the copy/paste between word, excel, and PowerPoint because sometimes the formate is not copied correctly.

More than a Presentation

Awesome, First-class, Full with a lot of Potentiality and learning with proper preparation.

Pros

PowerPoint is an tool to present a report or analysis with a very good outlook and understanding. I normally use it every as I am a presenter in my team and I work over the dates and presentations a lot. I generally knows all important featue of PPT and of course a lot more to be known in the coming time. I had also created a MCQ question on PPT and it works superbly via hyperlink function. Also animation is an icing on cake for the presenters. I use a less amount of animation as I am using it for a professional purpose. Secondly I had also created poster in PPT as it is one hidden feature which many didn't know. But poster presentation is a great feature of PPT. The tables can also be linked with respected excel via embedded feature which I use a lot .

Cons

Not a much, but if the suggestion of ideas sections can be given some more degree of freedom ny which the presentation can be improved a lot. Secondly auto animation feature can be a game changing feature if the company can have a thought over it.

Powerpoint and Teaching

Overall, I would one hundred percent recommend this to any instructor attempting to teach a course. Even within school programs it is great to use for presentations and can often capture the attention of the students, as this seems to be what motivate and captures the attention of this generation.

Pros

Recently, I began teaching through the Arise Platform. Currently, I service for multiple different companies like Comcast, Disney Resorts, and Dicks Sporting Goods. As a teacher, I teach three week classes at a time. For each class I am required to have PowerPoints. Microsoft PowerPoint moves quickly, is easy to navigate, easy to present, and even allows me to place extra notes for the students. It allows for citations, it allows you to input videos and images. It is easy for beginners and even professionals are able to use PowerPoints and be successful. Designs are quick and easy, it has a valuable amount of templates for whatever topic you may be presenting.

Cons

The thing I like the least about this software is how many different areas there are throughout the application. It can be difficult to navigate when first beginning to use it. It also allows for laziness when it comes to presenting for those who may be poor speakers. When owning a business or being a teacher it is important to not use your presentations as a crutch. I have seen many lazy instructors use PowerPoints for that precise reason. There is a large abundance of special features and I have seen through many presentations, instructors getting carried away with the features and it takes away from the meaning of the delivery.

A must-have for people who work with data

I use PowerPoint every day for my work and my hobbies. For my work, it is presentations, presentations, presentations. For my home life, it is birthday cards, invitations, collages, floor plans and so on. Still I have a few suggestions for PowerPoint from my personal experience. 1) Despite a big number of ready-to-go slide designs, it is still hard to find the one I like. There are many colorful designs, but not so many plain but nice designs, which would be appropriate for presenting serious or you can say boring data. 2) Another nice feature would be automatically removing white backgrounds in inserted pictures. Often I am not able to use any of the nice slide designs as they look ugly with all the white-background pictures, which cover elements of slide designs. 3) There is a very nice and useful collection of clip arts in PowerPoint. You can search clip arts by keywords, and it gives you plenty of options in different styles. But often it is hard to find clip arts for a single slide in the same style. So, it might make using clip arts annoying and time-consuming. I believe PowerPoint would benefit a lot if Microsoft works more on the clip art feature.

Pros

PowerPoint is a canonic software for creating presentations. It is a must-have if you work with data. It allows you adding text, tables, shapes, pictures, plots, video, animation. There are numerous templates for slide layouts, text formatting, table design. There is a comment section for each slide, which is very convenient. Compatibility with other Microsoft software is pretty good. For example, you can copy your data or plot directly from your Excel table to your PowerPoint slide. Another worth-mentioning feature is in-built vector drawing. Surely, it is not even close to Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw but it is pretty decent. And if you do not want to pay for another software you can easily create a simple vector illustration and save it in a raster format.

Cons

The weakest part of PowerPoint is its compatibility between different platforms. If you work exclusively on Windows machines, you are fine. Once you open your presentation on Mac or iOS mobile devices, your formatting gets crazy and video and animation stops working.

We love utilizing PowerPoint.

Pros

• I have been utilizing PowerPoint when I was an understudy and now in my expert life is a fundamental instrument. It has changed from numerous points of view yet every one of them has been so as to improve. Presently you can utilize it anyplace and it works in the entirety of your gadgets, tablets , PC, or your telephone, regardless of whether you don't have the product on term you can get access through your hotmail or viewpoint bookkeeper. Microsoft has improved the experience of clients by helping them to choose a plan agreeing with the thoughts or subject that you will introduce, it gives style and structure that is extremely useful for getting the consideration from your crowd. • It's the most broadly utilized and accessible programming (which means such huge numbers of individuals have it so it's conceivable you'll be able to send/get a record and open it.

"The best tech presentation on the market-PowerPoint"

Microsoft PowerPoint is the best program I have ever used during my entire life.It is from the finest business in the world, such as Microsoft. Even after using it is court, I was pleased.PowerPoint is perfect as it also helps us to provide the same presentation through our computer screen, with our slides, animations, images , videos, media, reports etc. You never have to worry about losing your work or not being able to access it if the online platform ever goes away.

Pros

PowerPoint makes it possible for almost everyone to be on their game when delivering it to a client or to their company internally.Nonetheless, there are some features that can be very effective (timed slides, transitions / animations, Smart Art etc.) that can differentiate a basic presentation to a highly affecting one when used correctly.As part of PowerPoint, I can pre-record or speak live.I use PowerPoint to create event posters, meeting handouts, project timelines and even digital graphics for our online focus groups Instead of Photoshop.One can select from thousands of layouts right inside the app otherwise you will have the flexibility to form your claim one of a kind format that I liked over the pre-constructed formats.

Cons

PowerPoint has one drawback, if too many images and videos are added, you may quickly increase your file and get out of control.It is disappointing and frustrating that they also don't have animations inside table material.One of the problems with PowerPoint is that if too many images and videos are added, the file will easily increase and get out of control.This program needs to be revised more frequently and new features added everyday.

A must for any professional presentation - Powerpoint

I personally use this tool daily for presentation and for training. When there is a quick concept I want to illustrate in few slides, I make prepare it on Powerpoint and share it with a team or present it while commenting the slides.

Pros

Microsoft Powerpoint is the easiest presentation application I ever used in my entire IT career. This application is part of the Microsoft office package and has so many powerful features. From basic slides to most advanced presentation and animations, I cannot thing of any thing you can't do with this application. There are templates available and any user can simply pick from any of them and build their presentation on to. In few click you have access to animations and a set of transitions times or triggered by users' click. on top of all, the tool us compatible with most of the presentation hardware and software developed out there. In many case, the presentation software can export to pptx format (which is typical Powerpoint) or allow importing a powerpoint file into their tool for conversion and further editing. User can easily insert pictures and videos into the file and it is compatible with excel and word so copying content from any of those editing tool to Powerpoint is as easy as Copy and Paste. It is the tool to go for when it comes to presentation and slideshows.

Cons

One drawback of Powerpoint is that the file can quickly increase and get out of control if too many pictures and videos are added. It can be resource demanding and for advanced presentations with many macros and actionable items, a more powerful computer might be required.

MS PowerPoint review

I have created large number of presentations over the years of using this product. Anytime when I have to create a new presentation, PowerPoint is an great tool to achieve that. Am happy that Microsoft did create this product, because it makes easy to create great presentations. Now, when I have a lot of experience with this product is is much easier that before, when I was a newbie using this product.

Pros

Powerpoint is a powerful tool to create and show presentations. After year of using this product the process of creating a new presentation is very straightforward. But from beginner point of view there is still lot to be improved. Today the Powerpoint has become a standard presentation tool across the globe. Everybody does use this product on all the venues which I did visit over the last years. I like most on this product all the features within the product. Using all of these features it is very easy to make any presentation to look very professional within a very short period of time. This is great for everyday productivity.

Cons

Like all Microsoft products,, Powerpoint has it's eccentricities. For a newbie it could be hard to be efficient with this tool. And for ma as a experienced Powerpoint user - I am missing better possibilities to create graphics or animated graphics within Powerpoint. Therefore I have to create these animations using another tools and then I import them into the Powerpoint.

PPTX! Does great overheads and SO much more!

I love PowerPoint! As mentioned, it's my go-to for actual presentations. But I use it for so many different types of design work, too, and it has made those projects so much easier to create. Unlike online creative design programs, anything you create is always available to you because they are saved on your computer. You never have to worry about losing your work or not being able to access it if the online platform ever goes away. I highly recommend it!

Pros

This is my go-to software for overheads when I am doing a presentation (which I do a lot). It is very user-friendly for creating the slides. The functions (fonts, etc) are very similar to using Word. And, when you are doing the actual presentation, you have use of things like the B key function to blank out the screen if you need it. And, in Presentation mode, you can see the slide that will be next. BUT... What I LOVE about PowerPoint is what else you can do with it! I use it for graphic design of posters and Facebook images and other types of designs I need. You can adjust size, colour and layouts very easily. You can get gridlines for lining up images and sizes that match up and so much more. And, you can changed the sizes of the slides to any dimension. I've created business cards as well as speaker one sheets. With the ability to create mulitiple slides, I can create one design and then simply copy it in the thumbnails on the side to preserve the first design and then I can make changes to the copy to see what something else might look like (a different colour or image or whatever). Right now I'm using it to catalogue items with each slide being a different collection of items. I can then export this as a PDF to create the multi-page document. This would be next to impossible in something like Word because I am using images and in PPTX they stay where I put them! Not so always in Word.

Cons

There's not much I don't like. One thing I would like is better tables because of some of the design work I do. The program comes with interesting table style ideas but I'd really like to have just a plain table like you can create in Word or Excel and with the same functionality. I haven't seen how to get that yet. Maybe it's there? That said, there are some neat design elements built in and they've been helpful for flow charts and such. But other than including a easy-to-access very plain table, I cannot think of anything else I'd change.

Ideal Option for Presentations, Easy Option for Quick Video

Overall, Powerpoint is an awesome tool especially if you are using the latest version. It really makes creating an easy and fun experience for both new and experienced users. I use Powerpoint and would recommend it to anyone interested in quality presentations and simple video creation. I have used Powerpoint for years and though there have been other tools on the market - Powerpoint has always remained my go-to software.

Pros

Powerpoint is a great tool for putting together a simple to a professional presentation. The features are user-friendly and the options are quite expansive. With the available tools in Powerpoint, you can simply create a presentation that looks well designed because Powerpoint has templates and design suggestions that you can take advantage of. So you don't have to be a designer to create something fairly decent. You can also go the elaborate route by using the transition features and animations to create unique and engaging presentations - and videos! The ability to create videos is a really nice option. For those who may not have access to video editing software, Powerpoint has the ability to export files as a video. It's not the best option if you are interested in creating a feature-rich video but if you need to create something quick and simple its a great choice that involves no learning curve aside from what you already know in Powerpoint.

Cons

Powerpoint is a great tool for presentations, simple videos but it not that great for image creation if you don't know a work-around. When downloading images in Powerpoint, the image quality of the downloaded file is not great at all. It becomes very pixeled. This can be quite frustrating if you know your way around Powerpoint and struggle to use or don't have access to other image editors. It is a problem that can be fixed but it takes a couple of steps that most users will not easily find. A Google search will lead to the hidden steps to resolving this problem so all is not lost if you image creation is what you're after.

If you want to make Presentations then Powerpoint has got you covered!

I've had a very positive experience with Powerpoint and would recommend it to almost anyone. Great software that has many features and is very easy to use.

Pros

PowerPoint being part of Microsoft's vast range of Products offers a vast number of features and resources to make your presentation. Having a very clean and intuitive design to the software helps you design your presentation in a simple card format. This layout helps you plan your presentation and build on it with visual tools to help change font size's, colour, layout, shapes and even allows you to add various images onto your slides. Furthermore you can also change slide animations, add sound cue's, add 3d videos and gif's to your slides to fully customise your presentation.

Cons

In terms of Cons there are a few cons such as how sometimes this software isn't as optimized and can feel slow on some computers when you try and either add too many images or 3d file formats into your presentation. While the slide format is nice sometimes however, you want to do more than just create a simple slide structure. While you can make some interesting presentations over time you wish you can create something that is completely different to powerpoints overall structure and this is where you might pursue another product to use.

Powerpoint - The Best Presentation Software On the Market

My overall experience with Powerpoint has been overwhelmingly positive. I've been using the software for years and never had any issues with my presentations. Having used it from everything to school projects, business presentations, and training new employees, I can testify to how truly versatile this product is and essential to creating professional presentations. Don't settle for other presentation software, because in my experience none are as simple to use and feature rich as Microsoft's Powerpoint.

Pros

Powerpoint is an intuitive and easy to use solution for creating any type of presentation. With a wide array of tools and features, the user is able to make presentations as simple or complex as desired. No frills projects can be made with minimal input and effort. More complex projects can utilize features such as slide animations in the form of transitions, bouncing text, sounds, moving images, and more. The best part about the software is how highly customizable the presentations are which means you are only limited by your own creativity. There are plenty of free presentation themes available that will give your presentation a sleek and professional appearance. You can also create a custom theme or purchase others if the free selection doesn't meet your preferences. The software gives you the option to record your voice and do virtual presentations if you are not able to present in real time which is a nice feature. Additionally, users can create charts, graphs, and smart art, which can help convey data in a visual format that is most suitable to your needs. Most importantly, presenting with the software is a breeze. Transitioning through slides can be done manually on the keyboard or through a wireless remote. This process is seamless and generally speedy depending on how many graphics and animations that need to load. Because of its sheer versatility, ease of use, and variety of customization options, there is no better presentation software than Microsoft Powerpoint.

Cons

I have no true functionality complaints about the software. However, I do think there is one feature that can be slightly improved. When exceeding a certain amount of text on a slide, Powerpoint will automatically resize the font so that the text will fit neatly onto the slide. At some point, the text will become too small to be readable during a presentation. Instead of continuing to resize the text so that it will fit onto the slide, Powerpoint should give the user a warning that the text will become too small to be legible while presenting. That way the user has an idea of when too much text has been put onto the slide and would be better off saving that information for a new slide. Perhaps after reaching a certain font size.
