Synchronize changes while you are presenting

For years, PowerPoint didn’t allow changes made to slides by others to be displayed while presenting. This ensured that the presenter was in full control of the content being shared. No one could revise slides, either accidentally or maliciously. It also ensured that all of your computer resources were used for slideshow rendering. A concern that is especially important if you are running on a low-end machine.

However, while some presenters may still desire this original design, we’ve heard from others that they are seeking more flexibility. With an increased focus on collaboration and real-time updates, we’re excited to make available the ability to synchronize changes whenever they are made, even when the presentation is in Slide Show mode.

 

How it works

You can synchronize changes in two ways: automatically or manually.

Automatically update slide content

1. Select the Keep Slide Updated check box on the Slide Show tab on the ribbon.

PowerPoint

2. Start the presentation by selecting the appropriate button on the Slide Show tab.

2. Start the presentation by selecting the appropriate button on the Slide Show tab.
