Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Powerpoint Online

PowerPoint Online was used as a way to work on presentations with other users and present the slide deck to clients or internal stakeholders without having to have a saved version locally. The biggest issue we ran into is that many users were on linux which does not have a native application version of office. The online version was the only way we could work with these users.
  • Platform-independent. Can be used on PC, Mac, or even on mobile computing
  • Cloud application, meaning that no local storage is required to build a presentation
  • Intuitive interface, similar to the MS Office suite
  • Several of the functions that people are used to in Windows or Mac are not available
  • Feels a bit clunky - slower to insert pictures
  • Formatting was more difficult than the OS apps.
  • Distributed collaboration - no need to send or share files
  • Platform independent - Office365 is all that's required
  • Similar to MS Office PowerPoint - no need to train users who have office experience
  • Reduced costs - no need to pay for higher Office licenses for all users
  • Increased efficiency - Collaboration without worrying about platform
  • Centralized location - everyone does work through browser

Overall PowerPoint Online is the best solution for heterogeneous environments where you have people working from different OS and machines. You don't have to worry about it working with your OS or spend time on supporting the app in too much depth, you just need a O365 account and a browser. This makes it convenient to collaborate on presentations. The downside is that the application is not as powerful as the native apps however you could edit some of it natively and upload to the online version.
