Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Powerpoint

The whole organization uses Microsoft Powerpoint for any presentations. It is already integrated with Teams, which we use for virtual collaboration. Powerpoint is used for any formal presentations to stakeholders, but also as high-level tool to communicate outlines of plans, data, etc.
  • Presentation - readability for all audience (virtual & live).
  • Automation within slides to highlight/manage information delivery
  • Integration with other Microsoft office tools, including Teams
  • Ability to save file as PDF for secure distribution
  • Better drawing tools, including updated icon library
  • Different templates that look less like standard 'slides'
  • Automatic updating from Office applications (e.g., chart/table from Excel, Gantt from Project) so embedded images are not static. (With ability to change to static if desired.)
  • Part of Microsoft Office suite
  • Relatively easy to learn & use
  • Everybody has Powerpoint, so file compatibility is not an issue
  • Positive impact: supports business goal to review status of various ongoing projects.
  • Positive impact: common tool so reduces workforce inefficiency.
Did not evaluate other presentation tools besides Microsoft Powerpoint, mostly because Powerpoint is so entrenched in company tools and processes.

Standard office presentations - Powerpoint is perfect for. Powerpoint is easy to put some bullets together. Presentation is easy and laser point, marker tools make it easy to present to virtual team members.

Some people use Powerpoint also as a drawing tool (drawing project timelines, drawing network diagrams/flow, etc.) and Powerpoint is not strong for drawing, though some drawing interfaces are easier the Microsoft VISIO.
