Pros: Overall it is easy to use and there are a lot of excellent features for animating the presentation, designing layouts, editing of photos, with lots and lots of options.

Cons: The software is good, and they do offer a lot, but many of the features are unknown. Maybe I need to do more reading, but it seems like some features are buried to for deep or in not intuitive locations. Yes, not everything be so easy, because if it's too easy, that means it's only meant for beginners. PowerPoint can be used by beginners and experts. One thing I don't care for, but I suppose it's a necessary evil, is every so often as we've seen, they modify the ribbon. When that gets modified, then it's look for the features all over again.

One feature I wish was in it is the ability to make the text in the Notes pane different sizes and fonts. I don't necessarily need all kinds of wild fonts, but at least allow me to use either sorry for Sans Serif and give a few options. Additionally, I don't like that the size is fixed. Sometimes I want to have a bigger font I can't do it, or at least I don't know how to do it. Maybe there is a way, I just have figured it out yet.

Overall: Since the late 90s. It has continuously been improved, yet it's been the bane of all tortuous training programs. You'll call it death by PowerPoint for good reason. Often is because the user doesn't how to design good training programs. Some of the options that they do provide are over-the-top and unnecessary, especially the sound effects when the slides transition or start. Those things can just go away!

Overall though, it's been very helpful and useful with other programs that integrate with PowerPoint, particularly for creating online training courses. For that I have to say I do like PowerPoint a lot. I don't even know of any other options besides PowerPoint. Yes, I know of Google Docs, but it's not the same. Close, but not the same.

Pros: Within the tools offered by Microsoft Office, PowerPoint is an excellent program for presentation with dynamic and attractive slides, which has many types of templates that can be modified and apply designs according to the need to have when mounting a presentation, designs among which you can choose the predesigned ones in the same program or adapt different ones. For the design of the templates you can add texts with different types of letters, sizes and colors, you can also add images, photos, tables, graphics, videos, audios, among others according to the taste, need and user criteria. It also gives us tools to show the presentation as animations, sounds, effects that help to improve the aesthetics of the presentation. Another important aspect is that it allows you to add hyperlinks to connect with other files that may be considered important in some part of the exhibition at the time of showing the presentation. It is easy to save in PC memory and can be reopened and modified if required without any problem, additional can be saved in different formats. It has the option of allowing you to review the slides as they are made, to be corrected in the same process, additional has the view of moderates on the side of the screen. It also allows to add time for the practices prior to the formal presentation, and even to establish and meet the stipulated time for the presentation. It is a very practical program and can be used to present research results, as a help tool in class

Cons: Power Point is a tool of daily use in my work as a teacher - researcher and I have never had problems with the use and application of it in the day to day of my duties, I have no objection to the program, rather it seems a tool very valuable in the educational - business environment.

Overall: Power Point has allowed me to make presentations with slides, where I develop the content of the classes to transmit them to my students in a dynamic, interactive and with the largest number of applications that makes the transmission of knowledge more practical and easy, and even makes Students are more attracted to the content developed. As a researcher it is a tool used to develop presentations of research results for presentations at academic events. Both as a teacher and researcher this tool has allowed me to develop my presentations according to the target audience, with the use of many applications (texts, photos, images, sounds, videos, tables, graphics, among others), it has allowed me to connect my presentations with other files that interests me at particular times show. It really is a practical tool, and very important for the development of my functions.

Pros: Microsoft PowerPoint is the premier application for creating, editing, and reviewing presentation slides. While PowerPoint does come at a price, as opposed to other, free slideshow editing software, the features that are provided justify every cent of the price. Features include basically ever edit/insert imaginable and are intuitive to find. If you have to make a slideshow for any purpose and can afford it, there is no reason to deny yourself this program. Ultimately, there is a reason slideshow presentations are now colloquially referred to as PowerPoints!

Cons: Frankly, price is one of the largest issues I have with this product. Given that this is one of the most common, standard-setting applications on the market, it is disappointing to see that there are not many options available when it comes time to purchase. Namely, PowerPoint is not available separately and can only be purchased as part of the Microsoft Office Suite. This program suite includes several other programs, some used frequently while others are not used by me at all, and can only be purchased either annually, or permanently on one device. As a Geek Squad agent, I have helped several individuals set up their PowerPoint software and have found in several situations the setup can be quite a hassle. Specifically, I would input their key code into the program and it would not authenticate their account. This was easily remedied by refunding their product and using a new key, but if someone is setting their account up without support one may run into trouble.

Overall: Overall, my lifetime experience with PowerPoint has been great. I have created dozens of PowerPoints and seen thousands. PowerPoint has, more than any other program, improved the way information is disseminated in group settings. Informative business meetings can now be even more so with the help of a slideshow presentation. Class lectures now allow for more retention by placing important points in front of the audience. The digital nature of PowerPoints allows for data to be saved and pulled up later. As well, changes can be made on the fly to adapt a PowerPoint to a specific audience or account for new, ever-changing information.

Awesome application with endless features!

Pros: I have been using PowerPoint for years for my own presentations and to edit presentations for c-level executives at conferences. I've learned that PowerPoint can do a lot more than I thought. One of its capabilities I love the most is that I can insert vector files from Adobe Illustrator onto a PowerPoint slide and the formatting doesn't change. This is great when someone from sales needs an infographic I previously designed added to their presentation. And when I'm building something from scratch within PowerPoint, there are a lot of design features that allow me to build graphics just as vibrant as those built with an Adobe application. The shapes and icons that are already installed look great, I can format their dimensions to make everything look uniform, the animations are easy to apply to each image or shape, and it's honestly even easier to use than Illustrator. PowerPoint is way more than just text on slides. You can easily create a visually dynamic presentation if you take a closer look at its design features. I love all of them.

Cons: The hardest part about using PowerPoint is when you're trying to create slide templates using the Slide Master feature. The logos, fonts, colors, headers or whatever you use on the template will stay put on the slide unless you go back into Slide Master mode to made edits to the template. But there were times when the person I shared a template with wanted to make a change or remove something from the template to make an especially large graphic fit on a slide. This created extra work for me because PowerPoint's Slide Master mode is a bit difficult to understand and I end up having to go back and help people make changes, which defeats the purpose of having a template. I wish it were easier to use for beginners.

Pros: What I like most about this software is that it is easy to use, it is adaptable to any business and engineering activity, showing graphics, images and text in presentations at a professional level. I have always had the impression that was designed thinking about the oil industry, most of the daily reports and meetings in the oil business use the PowerPoint format, in these are shown specialized schemes and graphics among others.

The connectivity feature and direct compatibility with other Microsoft tools such as Exel and Word are very useful and save time in the daily activities and requirements of the oil business.

In my place of work daily they request presentations and reports, using PowerPoint we can solve in time.

I use this program since my beginnings in the oil industry, back in 1996, it was the PowerPoint95 version, since that time it has been an essential tool in my professional development.

Cons: What I like least about this software are some graphic limitations in terms of bitmap image resolution and the high use of RAM memory that require the best graphic resolution vector images. Although these features have been improving over time, I would like in the future to be able to compare PowerPoint with a Canvas type tool in terms of the graphic quality of objects and images.

Another feature that can be improved is the incompatibility of files generated in more recent versions of the program with older versions.

Overall: This software has allowed me to show professional presentations in a short time and thus meet the requirements of the oil business.

Pros: Power Point is very easy to use, it allows me to create presentations with a good visual appeal thanks to its miles of functions to compose image of professional quallity.

I can build a contet grid for the Social Media accounts I manage, and in that way I can show my work to my clients in a dynamic way. They really love my job because of that.

Nevertheless, what I like the most about Power Point is that I can turn my presentations to PDF, so I can save that content on my Smartphone and schedule all post in an easier way.

Power Point its very easy to learn how to use it, you don't really need a guide or something like that. Also, if you are a begginer or you don't have any ideas to start your presentation, this program gives you several template options to choose and make a sucessful job.

But wait a minute, I don't only use Power Point for my Social Media content, I used it to create business documents, so that way is easier for the company's graphic designer to build the design for the final presentation.

As well, Power Point is very useful for my academic issues, I ussually create the material support for my oral evaluations, and it really helps to keep the attention of my classmates and it makes funny and dynamic a complex subject.

Cons: I don't know if this is because of my computer, but sometimes the program gets frozen, just for a few minutes, but the frequency of that problem I can count it with the fingers of one hand, so it's not a big deal.

I think I don't have something I like least about this software. I really love all Microsoft products.

Overall: Thanks to Power Point I can give an idea to the graphic designer about how I want my design to look, in this way the contents are delivered with greater speed to the clients.

In addition, I have learned certain notions of graphic design that have helped me to grow in my profession of Community Management, allowing me to offer a more complete service.

Pros: It allows to edit and segment information and present it with greater efficiency, clearly and concisely, in order to create a graphical user interface that is effective and maintains the attention of the public during its presentation.



One of the elements that most characterizes it is its portability, since it can be moved without any problem, using any web medium or portable storage means.



It offers users a range of predetermined templates as well as the ease of incorporating new custom designs, as well as allowing to combine images, animations, videos, texts, sounds and hyperlinks in the presentation that allowed the user to produce a high level presentation.



It is a tool that is widely used in the educational field and in the business world, since it allows adding value to the different activities and projects that must be carried out.



In its latest updates, the PowerPoint 2016 version emphasizes the functionality of facilitating the collaboration of the work teams, for which a presentation can be accessed and modified at the same time, thus being able to monitor the accesses and define if they are maintained or not changes made by another team member in it.

Cons: Even when PowerPoint presentations can be stored on any computer or device, the disadvantage that the file can be affected by a virus or accidentally deleted can be lost if the information is not backed up. But I think it's a problem that occurs on all platforms because when you have permission to create you can also delete.



In relation to its portability, a disadvantage is that at the time of its presentation, all the provisions regarding the elements incorporated in the design must be taken, since there may be problems in generating errors if the necessary files are not stored in the system. equipment in which it is going to be carried out, and the compatibility in other equipment is not guaranteed. In the case of the use of hyperlinks in this aspect of portability, it must be verified that the linked data has not been moved and is in the correct location, verifying the access path of that source file, and thus avoiding Problems at the time of the presentation.



Another disadvantage that can be mentioned is when saving the presentation, given that its compatibility must be specified for those cases in which it is necessary to work with previous presentations of the program, among them it must be saved in extension .ppt so that it can be visualized in other versions and thus access the functionality in its entirety.

Overall:

During my studies it was a tool that I could use throughout my career to develop projects and add value to the exhibitions I had to do. In my work, PowerPoint has allowed me to work dynamically for many years and to make known my ideas and different contributions in the activities and projects developed by the institution where I work, as well as in the activities that I carry out as a facilitator of courses in different themes

Pros: Actually this is a pretty good software to improve your skills with virtual presentations. I remember using MS Powerpoint back in those days when I was a kid where I was addicted to this making presentations nonstop. Applying animations, sound effects was a good move because it really helped to make creative and attractive presentations. When we talk about custom animation effects, they are really attractive to naked eyes with perfect font combination. MS powerpoint is faster than other software when it comes to running presentations as I witnessed. Simple but I never really faced any issue while presenting which is a good feature where many software fails. Interface is pretty much the same, it didn't change much leaving users (Normal) to work with software without any complexity. I even used this software in my high school period and university period where I am an graduate and a project manager working in a leading company here. This software really helped me and I am truly thankful to it's development team and core.

Cons: Developers should have added more functions to the software. Like I mentioned in the pros section, interface didn't change much. But meantime users are expecting more features from software. Animations effects are almost the same. There should have been more with time. Image effects, Sound effects. Video effects, these are must for a presentation. Background effects, images where presentation would look very attractive should be added and updated with time. If the software comes with these changes I think majority of the crowd will love to embrace MS Powerpoint again.

Overall: I've used this software my entire school period and even my university time. This helped me a lot with presentations and even now being a Project Manager I still use this software because of the simplicity and I would recommend this software for anybody as this is one of the best software I've ever used.

Pros: As IT project manager and Business Analyst, I'm using Powerpoint on a daily basis. It's is very easy to use and powerful. I can start from a blank page and produce a impressive presentation or diagrams very quickly.

I particularly appreciate the slide view that helps me to re-order my slides to create my story line.

I also appreciate the "hide slide" function that I use to customizemy presentation for specific audiences.

The fact that PowerPoint is commonly use in my business sector is also a plus. It's de-facto a standard that people can use to exchange ideas. It's also very easy to find video tutorials and free templates on the web.

I also use it for non-presentation tasks like creating Wireframes, UX diagrams, comic strip for communication or small advert pictures that I can use on social media (in jpg format).

During the presentation, the presenter view is really great and deserve to be improved.

Cons: If you want to create an impressive presentation, you have to start from a blank page, period.

There a no theme that looks great or attractive. When you compare it with Keynote on Mac, it's quite disappointing. So I do it manually and copy paste one of my previous presentations for the layout.

Your design could crash when you try to play your presentation on a guest PC. Most of the time due to some missing fonts. I know that you can change the save option to embed it but it is not intuitive and it's easily forget when you are in a rush.

Alignement of objects is not always easy. I would appreciate some dynamic guides when I move an item on the page.

The file size is often very big. Especially when you start to include images.

As previously mentioned, the presenter view is really great and deserve to be improved: bigger fonts for notes and more flexibility in the presenter view layout.

Overall: Improved my reputation as IT expert and UX specialist. People call me to design their presentations.

Pros: There are so many pros, it is hard to know where to begin. PowerPoint is chock-full of different features.

- Themes are included to give an easy layout for your business presentations

- Simple image editing has been included so other programs do not need to be used

- Animation, both simple and more advanced, is a breeze in PowerPoint

- Transitions between slides can make for a more seamless presentation

- PowerPoint supports dual monitors so you as the presenter can see more information than the audience

- An export feature allows you to export slides as a PDF or basically any kind of document you could want if you would rather display your information a different way

- Text editing is as simple as it is any Word Processing program

- While it is feature-heavy, the user interface allows for even beginners to create visually appealing presentations

That is a list of just some of the advantages to this software. However, the most important advantage is its speed. I can have a decent presentation created in less than 15 minutes. The amount of time I have saved using this program is certainly shocking, and I have not had to sacrifice quality to do it.

Cons: Unfortunately, PowerPoint is included with Microsoft Office, meaning it is certainly not freeware. However, considering its Power (Overall: This has saved me both time and worry in the realm of presentations. It is a must-have for anyone who wants to include a visual with any of their business presentations.

Pros: PowerPoint is an application used for the creation and distribution of presentations in meetings, courses and events, quite functional and very complete, capable of making simple presentations to very complex designs. I think PowerPoint is a super powerful tool totally underused. It is excellent in the sense that if you do not master specific design programs such as illustrator or Photoshop, and want to create other types of documents such as an ebook or an infographic, you can create your own template, generate the content and then export your presentation as PDF or as an image to share it. It has a huge amount of automatic tools, such as the alignment of objects, the ability to combine them according to the needs, make transparencies for more professional finishes and something very great that has is the ability to create and use keyboard shortcuts in the autocorrector helping us to save weather. It can also be used to create more visual and infographics, filling forms with images. For example, you could create a bar graph, copy it and paste it back as an image, and use it to fill in a silhouette. it gives the ability to add audios and narrationsyo our slides, giving us the possibility to make small editions and a total control of these to unify them with the presentation.Finally, PowerPoint offers a world of possibilities and very useful tools for companies,characterizing it because anyone is able to use it, but if you put a little more effort you can make great slides.

Cons: Creating attractive PowerPoint slides can be a task takes a lot of work compared to creating a projected presentation, a whiteboard or other visual materials. Most people do not have time to develop content and then learn how to turn it into a motivating and impressive presentation. If the PowerPoint slides seem rushed or flawed, it could seem that no time was spent preparing, decreasing the effectiveness of the presentation.

What appears on the slides is not always what appears in the presentation, the colors and font types displayed on the computer will not necessarily be the same in your presentation.

The PowerPoint is one of the most widespread, versatile, and sensitive programs and has a very extensive range of tools with which you can customize the slides we make, such as:

The use of templates; that can be done by the user, in addition to those that are already pre-established, you can enter texts varying the color and size of the letters according to the needs and tastes of the user.

You can insert images facilitating a better understanding of what the slide is about and inserting texts to the images complementing the exhibition.

It has animation tools, with which you can give effects to texts and images, giving it a better appearance.

In the audio you can vary between inserting music, explanations, narrations, or related talks that can be adjusted.

Among other.

Cons:

The disadvantage, the PowerPoint user has gives you the tools to make an excellent presentation, fun, bright, entertaining and interesting among other qualities, but you as a user can make it boring, overloaded with effects with unusual templates, is as creative as you want it to be

Overall: PowerPoint always helps me to capture the attention of those to whom I present my material. As Security Coordinator I train and train more than 3000 people per project, in the different branches of my specialty.

Pros: I am a user of Microsoft Power Poin which I use daily, it has been a very useful work tool, since I can make presentations with professional quality, not only within the institution where I work as a leader of the Technological Platform but also in other private organizations to which I work giving advice.

It seems to me that the tools of text editing, the incoportacion of images, photographs and videos give a great professionalism to this great tool.

The effects of transition gives a very attractive option which causes the participants to have their attention to 100% of the subject.

Also, the incorporation of Data from Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access complements the information that I want my listeners to be attentive.

I can widely recommend the use of this great tool that gives a very important touch to my work, being able to project all the ideas and important concepts of the activity.

Cons: As a regular user of Microsoft Power Point, I can say that one of the few disadvantages that it has is the use of new versions that incorporate functions that when opening or running on a computer with an old version, these wonderful effects are lost. have been used, what we have to do frequently if we want to share is to save for previous versions.

Also, it has against this software that we must always be protected with a good anti virus, that protects the operating system from malicious software and that at the time of sharing our presentations is not infected and we cause disloyalty to our colleagues.

Something very interesting is not to include too many animations that distract the attention of the participants. Also, the file would be very heavy with a lot of megabits.

Overall: This software has allowed me to share my experience with a product that has helped me a lot in my professional environment, as well as see the evaluations of other professionals before acquiring it and have a good opinion of them and know their benefits.

Pros: PowerPoint is a very straightforward and comprehensive software, when used for the simple task of delivering quick, text-centric content it is a cost-effective and simple tool to use. Users have the ability to create fast and easy to read presentations for a wide variety of purposes. There is a reason why MS. PowerPoint is a standard application and a requirement for most professionals. The application has an added benefit of being accessible on tablets and mobile devices. Another great feature is the "presenter view" which allows the presenter to view and anticipate the content being presented when creating a presentation you can also add comments to further add details to your slide.

Cons: PowerPoint's slide-based model is one of the oldest tricks in the book, it is absolutely the simplest format one can think of to deliver content aside from emails. However, in 2018 there are far better options out there such as Adobe Captivate and Camtasia (which has PowerPoint integration).

The hyperlinking is faulty at times and can use some improvement. The files can get damaged when transferred, especially via email.

Adding audio or video to PowerPoint could prove slightly complicated at times if you are not well versed in how to use it.

PowerPoint requires creativity if you want your slides to not be boring.

Overall: This software allows me to really deliver training content to my peers and employees. It is useful even when creating e-learning content using other recording software in tandem with PPT.

I believe that it is an absolute requirement to learn and understand how to use Microsoft PowerPoint. The updates and improvements made by Microsoft have really made this product a must use for corporations and single users alike.

Pros: Powerpoint is easy to use. Once you understand that the secret is an extensive use of the mouse right click - you can get almost anything done. The color, fonts, sizes and other features behave the same as in all other MS products. So if you ever worked with Word or Excel it is a pretty seamless experience even for beginners. A lot of the available features change according to the item that is currently selected, thus predicting your next steps and needs. This behavior in the product has been improving more and more from one version to the next.

Cons: There is a difference between the product version for Mac and PC. I find the PC version more robust and friendly.

Presentations, especially those with a lot of graphics can become very heavy. The feature allowing to reduce presentation size is hidden, and you have to be an advanced user to easily find it.

It is still frustrating when you copy slides from one presentation to another and all the design changes. In order to keep the original design you have to know where to look for the "keep original design" command. I have seen this happen many times and waste a lot of people's precious time, all because this feature is hidden. That is a shame.

Overall: I have been using this product for years and it gets better and easier with every version.

It is dependable and solid.

I find it easy to use, and easy to explain to others how to use it (I am considered and expert of this tool in the company I work at).

Although some features are hard to find even though they are highly needed - like resizing of files - I still think this is a good tool with high value for money.

Pros: Most of all, PowerPoint is user-friendly which is my number one criteria for software.

I think of all the Microsoft business software, PowerPoint is the easiest to learn, the most fun (because I love design.) And, it's not just for slide shows anymore! Change the size, turn the grids on and you've got powerful design software for any design project.

I like the way they've integrated it with the cloud for saving files. This makes it even more versatile from the desktop.

The new 'Design' utility in Office 365 is outstanding! I am an ongoing self-taught designer and this new feature has my full attention. I like it!

Cons: This is a big, powerful piece of software that can be cumbersome. It sometimes crashes (which I believe is the reason they have their 'restore' utility on point at all times.)

However, I have to interject that it is not as cumbersome as Adobe products that slow my poor little lap top down and makes me pray for a solid state drive.

So, if I have to choose between the two, I choose Microsoft. On my home system, it works better. When I worked 8 - 5 in business offices with high-speed internet, there was no noticeable difference between the speed of the two products, but at home, there is a big difference.

Overall: I'm making this my home business. After 10 years of social media marketing, I've come back to the basics of business and specializing in design projects that primarily utilize PowerPoint.

However, it is not stand alone. For example, I sometimes use it in conjunction with online services such as Canva, ColorZilla, and purchased graphic assets from Creative Market.

I use PowerPoint all the time. It is my primary presentation software.

Pros: I find ppt very easy to use, and have been using it since I can remember. It has all of the essentials I need to create a good looking, professional presentation, and features that make it look like I know a lot more about design than I do. Designing a background by uploading a file and making it transparent, for instance ... looks stellar. Adding in some animation also makes your presentation feel more interactive, but doesn't take much effort at all. The available icons make it look more modern. There are a number of features that contribute to ease of use as well. It is easy to paste graphics/text in (for instance, ours or a client's company logo) and insert other pictures and files. Things are easy to insert, move around, play with, duplicate and edit. I also appreciate that there are templates you can choose when you aren't feeling very inspired. There are usually multiple people who are looking at the same ppt in our company, so the ability to insert comments is also super helpful. All of this being said, I think the software has a lot of other capabilities and functionalities that I have most likely not explored. For instance, every time I ask my Director of Marketing about something related to ppt, she usually shows me something I did not know before, and says that she discovers these features solely by Googling how to do something.

Cons: One thing I would say that I would love to see is some sort of process map feature. When I need to make a very custom process map I use Gliffy, export the diagram, and copy/paste it into my ppt presentation. Also - and this is a big one - for whatever reason, I have a lot of trouble when I am using the Slide Master View to insert a logo which needs to be on every page. I have Googled it, played with it, and always end up doing it manually (as in, pasting our logo onto every single slide). To be honest it drives me NUTS.

Overall: We are able to create attractive bespoke presentations for internal use as well as client projects with ease.

Pros: I have used PowerPoint as a support tool in my professional activity as a teacher and analyst of investments and business opportunities, finding in its functionality the answer to my didactic, strategic and operative needs for the diffusion of knowledge, the explanation of diverse topics and the schematization of a great variety of contents destined to the visualization of audiences of very varied nature in environments of face-to-face and viirtual learning, as well as in environments of discussion, negotiation and socialization of plans and projects. This allows me to affirm that it is a tool that facilitates team work, the organization of content for its dissemination and the synchronous and asynchronous projection of topics.

PowerPoint is a friendly and intuitive software that allows the production and editing of content for both beginner and expert users, providing facilities for the inclusion of images, animations, and a great diversity of multimedia resources.

Considering the basic minimums in terms of content organization, color harmony and selection of relevant graphics and images, is an excellent companion in the execution of meetings, classes, tutorials, brainstorming sessions, among other forms of exchange and individual and / or group job with teamworks.

In addition, the possibility of exporting the product made with PowerPoint as a video, gives it a plus that can not be ignored, as it obtains greater portability of the resources produced with this tool.

Cons: In some versions, design elements are lost due to incompatibility with previous versions and, mainly, due to incompatibility with free software.

Similarly, as a frequent user of the program, I would expect more freedom and openness for the edition of the SmartArts in response to the needs of the users without presenting such noticeable alterations in the proportion and distribution of the graphics that make them up.

Overall: Portability of ideas, easy to outline and compile content to be exposed to various public, harmony of content, ease of operation, low consumption of resources on the PC and friendly and intuitive operability for the achievement of effective presentations.

Pros: I like this software that can now be used in different operating systems in addition to having user-friendly tools allowing generating ideas and creativity with each of these tools within the software. The ability to download this tool on any device facilitates the creation of executive and school presentation work. The templates that are predetermined are attractive that facilitate the creation of a dynamic graphic and visual content.

Recommended for anyone, whether it's for a high school student or a senior executive...

In a professional environment, I think it is the simplest and has many features (add-ons) to express any complex idea in a simple way to the end user or in a team meeting. Microsoft PowerPoint is an easy-to-use and powerful program. Continue to improve the program and continue to benefit from these products that allow us to teach others and share details. I have been using Powerpoint for more than 10 years to create presentations in all areas of my life. At work, when I was at school and at home with children. I really like the simplicity of the program and its ability. It makes my presentations fun and interesting due to its features such as animations, color-coded themes and fun templates. Let me start by saying that it is the software of all the educators and presenters (at least in my field) like me. It makes it easy not only to present information professionally, but it can also be used to edit photos, create instructions and format photos and text in

Cons: Its license is very expensive, it loses the structure of the slides when it is used in free software. Computers must have a lot of capacity to implement presentations without problems. Your files are very capable.

Maybe I can say that this is the problem of Powerpoint:when you want to insert large files as videos, it takes a long time, but I do not know if it is a program or a computer.

Although PowerPoint offers many different types of templates for you to use in your presentations, which makes it much easier to create professional-looking slide shows, you can not edit these templates. This has been a big negative for me, since there are many times when I want to use a template but I do not want everything to be included; You may need to delete a graphic or a form, but it is not possible. When you use a template, you must keep the funds the same. This often means that I can not use a template and I have to create my presentation from scratch.

From a design point of view, Powerpoint still has a lot to do to increase ease of use. The whole concept of inserting shapes and selecting multiple shapes at the same time to change something like the thickness of the color or stroke is very difficult. I would really like to see an improvement in the design tools they offer in the program, not only to make it easier but also to allow a more complex design to occur.

To say that I do not like something about Powerpoint would be false for me, since I do not really see anything i

Pros: I like it because in a slide nothing is arbitrary, everything is relevant, that is, all the elements that make up a slide must have a relationship, a visual connection. In this way the sum of the elements is made part of a whole. In my work there are many presentations of statistics, representation of graphs and tables and this tool makes it possible to insert them so that the results of the project are understood clearly and simply, you can make your presentation something harmonious, placing a template that correspond to what you submit to attract the attention and understanding of the public, combining all the elements that make up your work, there must always be a homogeneity in terms of typography, sizes, colors, as well as other important aspects such as images, transitions and alignments that this tool allows you.

Cons: This tool is used many times because there are many presentations of a specific topic with different groups of individuals interested in this topic, the files can be saved and sent easily, but there is a risk that it is easily damaged because of some virus It must be taken into account that this is one of the most frequent disadvantages and several backups of the information must be carried out.

Overall:

It is a tool that facilitates the presentation of the work assigned to me, to expose the results of the activities that are carried out in my work space, where I demonstrate and project with clarity the results and the different alternatives to obtain solutions of the problems that have been presented in the execution of the activities.

Pros: Types of content supported, simple interface, powerful engine, superior quality, stability, support for other Microsoft Office products.

Cons: This is the only software that I cannot think of a single con for!

Overall: I have been using Microsoft PowerPoint since the Office 97 days. I cannot imagine work life without this great tool. The importance of presentation quality cannot be underestimated because it usually provides the first impression about your company, product, or self. 95% of all presentations you see are made with Microsoft PowerPoint. There are over 1 billion PowerPoint users so that right there tells you how great of a product it is.

PowerPoint's strength is in its intuitive user interface that follows the look and feel of other Microsoft Office products. So, if you have used MS Word before for example, then you can easily navigate through PowerPoint and create a presentation quickly. For each presentation, you can choose a template theme that defines its color and gives your presentation a consistent and professional look. Microsoft provides a ton of templates to download from within PowerPoint itself right at the welcome screen.

As for the presentation elements, your presentation is made of individual slides (pages) and each slide can contain just about any type of material you want like images, text, video, animated GIFs, tables, graphs, etc. Adding any of these elements is as simply as clicking Insert-picture for example. PowerPoint also includes a powerful and equally simple to use animation engine to animate your slide's content (like making text fly in or out) or animate the way slides progress (called Transition effects).

One thing most PowerPoint users don't know is that PowerPoint is very often used to create video presentation slides and backdrops for webcasts. There are several high quality professional PowerPoint plug-ins like Camtasia Studio that allow you to turn your presentation into a video with background music, onscreen graphics, and much more.

PowerPoint has moved from just a presentation tool into a platform in itself where developers are now creating tools that run on PowerPoint's engine. Checkout iSpring Suite for example which turns PowerPoint presentations into online eLearning courses that are SCORM compliant and can be integrated into most Learning Management Systems.

In summary, PowerPoint helps you build strong and professional first impressions about your company and products. It is a very powerful platform with countless features and very powerful 4rd party add-ons. It's worth every single penny you will spend buying it.

Recommendations to other buyers: PowerPoint is an absolute necessity for any working professional regardless of line of business, you will always find yourself preparing material to show others and there is no better way to do it than in a PowerPoint presentation.

No better way to present data to others using a tool other than this

Pros: Microsoft Powerpoint is one of the best and most sophisticated tool for creating powerpoint presentations.

It really helps to put our ideas across by using combinations of different media elements. It is best platform tool used by corporates, education institutes, etc. I personally demonstrate new features to my class students using powerpoint slides.

It is easy to design a slide, provide good backgrounds, templates, colors, etc. It is very easy to place text and images on a slide in any place in any manner.

Slide animation and individual elements animation really adds a boost to this platform as it can be used accordingly while representing data to others.

Slide master helps to set a proper template across all slides and we can use in-built or custom themes too.

There are various other features that are provided by MS PowerPoint and it indeed helps a lot in the long run.

Cons: PowerPoint has become very outdated although MS Office keeps on updating providing it a bit of new added features. However, those in the technology field would know, the new tool Microsoft Sway launched few years back can also provide almost similar features like the MS PowerPoint, as it is preferred for storyboard telling.

MS Office suite is pretty expensive but a value for money for all the features they provide.

Macros in PowerPoint is really tough when compared with MS Excel, as they need to be custom programmed instead of being captured and run automatically, making it tougher to use.

Pros: This software is easy to use. I create a weekly presentation for an online class I teach. I really don't do anything super fancy. I'm proficient in power point but not sophisticated. PowerPoint is great for presentations. Even if you've never used the software, I believe you can figure out how to use its basic features very easily. It's fairly easy to intuit your way through the program.

One of the features I like is the ability to hide slides. I may reuse a presentation for a different audience and I don't want to create a new presentation but I also don't want to use all the slides I'd used before. I can easily hide slides that I don't need and bring them back when I do need them.

Another feature I like is the slide show mode. I'm able to have each individual slide fill the entire screen for a presentation. I'm generally using it for online presentation. There are hidden buttons in the lower left hand side of the slide that allow me to go backwards and forwards in the absence of a clicker.

Finally, you really can create any style presentation you want. I tend to use the prefab presentations offered in the templates. But with a budget or some know how you can create a really awesome presentation that wows your audience.

Cons: What I like least about the software is probably not Microsoft's fault. I see really fancy presentations and I never find those templates when I'm creating the presentation. I don't know if I need to go to a special site or what.

There's also a ton of functionality that I'm missing out on because I don't fully know how to use the software. I could probably benefit from a Lynda.com course to fully understand what this program can do.

Overall: Create customized presentations to really tell your story.

Choose from several prefab slide templates if you don't know how to create your own.

It is an excellent product. Its extensive features allow to do beautiful and elegant presentations.

Pros: I like everything of Microsoft Power Point. I believe, honestly, that it is one of the best products available to design presentations easily, quickly, optimally and elegantly. I think that the style of its interface favors users with little experience in the use of design software, so that anyone can build high quality presentations with this software and in a short time. Functionalities such as the use of predetermined designs help in the quickly preparation of presentations, and the advantage of being reconfigurable is ideal. Of course, the users must have a minimum of knowledge about the manipulation of others functionalities such as insertion of image, color combination, font style, font type, animations, slide transition, time intervals, incorporation of sound, etc. to be design the presentation correctly. All its features allow to build professionals presentations.

Cons: For me, it is complicated finding disadvantages to a product that it is excellent. Maybe I should mention that it is necessary a good machine (Personal Computer or Laptop) with good features, to make simple videos with Microsoft Power Point. Since rendering the slides is a bit slow and sometimes I have noticed that any properties of some slides are lost. Also, running the video on machines with few features is almost impossible. But, I think that maybe this happens with all type of software oriented to video manipulation. Another aspect that I would like to incorporate into the product is the ability to edit images inserted from within the application, to retouch them efficiently, without draw upon to other design software, as is done with graphics of Microsoft Excel, for example.

Overall: My students and I use this software extensively in the classroom. For me it is an excellent work tool.

Pros: Power point is one of the most versatile programs of Microsoft Office, since it allows to present in an organized and interactive way texts, tables, images, animations, sounds and videos in order to design, present and transmit an idea and / or project in of slides allowing the user to develop and express their knowledge, creativity and imagination. In addition, it presents a wide range of templates and designs that are installed in the application or can be obtained online, with all kinds of fonts and colors. In the same way, it presents a series of tools (controls, calls to hyperlinks, storyboard, integration with the data repository in the Microsoft Cloud, establish time in the slides, among others) that have been updated and improved with each version that allows a better interface with the user when making a presentation. Therefore, it is one of the programs most used by young people and adults to present their ideas and projects in the different areas.

Cons: Power point is only used for Windows and Mac OS operating systems. Regarding the design of the slides, if the user does not know how to express ideas in an organized and creative way, it can be an exhibition that bores the audience. Likewise, in many occasions they can be presentations that include distractors in the meeting since ideas are presented in a hierarchical way and the use of animated elements is abused.

Pros: Currently I work as Editorial Coordinator, and it is necessary for me to generate excellent written content, but also expository, since many of our sponsors seek the highest quality in the editorial of their artistic and musical themes.

Microsoft has designed this fabulous work tool that has allowed me to project in a pleasant and dynamic way, all the potentials that I have as a professional in the area of editorial projects, making my visual exhibitions works of art that have been valued and rewarded in new projects financed by different types of institutions.

Powerpoint has qualities of all kinds, expositive, analytical, customizable, aesthetic. All this is combined into wonderful tools for developing dynamic and static templates, elaboration of explanatory tables, insertion of images and videos to the slides, among many other options that make your research and exhibitions excellent works of high quality.

Cons: This software must be managed at its maximum capacity, that is, to make quality presentations, you have to handle the full spectrum of options offered by Powerpoint, but, the presentations tend to be very basic and gray, losing the essence of the idea that you want to transmit to the public.

Overall: A software that must belong in a mandatory way to your compendium of software used in your company, corporation, or business. The potentials that you get from Powerpoint will not be found in other software.

Pros: 1. The way it has introduced the presentation there is now no need of someone to give the presentation there is option of self running presentation that will slide automatically as you have made it.

2. I absolutely love the concept of Clipart images, if you ever need to add an image to your presentation you can pick a clipart image.

3. I can not resist myself using its Transition option for slides they have got beautiful effect like cut, fade, push , wipe, reveal etc.

4. Wide variety of available templates to choose from.

5. One can even set the time for slides like after what time next slide should show. Interesting isn't?

6. It's well collected sounds like Applause, Arrow, Bomb, Breeze, camera.

7. Its basic feature like spell check and Auto correct.

8. I can insert pictures, shapes, charts, WordArts, Animation, photos, videos and what not.

Cons: There is absolutely nothing to not like about PowerPoint but there are some cons of machine and power point is also using it so what happens is sometimes your cable can not work correctly to the port of other projector.

Sometime your presentation may become boring as it is Static content so you should be directing the presentation according to your client or customer.

Cost is always a cons.

Overall: Power Point solves my all presentation need.

It make the presentation alive by using different creative method as i like.

It is not that much costly.

Pros: I have been using Power Point for several years and the first thing to say is that everybody should gibe it a try since it is the presentation software most easy to learn and to work with. Power Point has several and various options to choose with specially regarding templates and effects which gives my work presentations a very nice look and make them more didactive. Also, when adding text, images. graphics and videos it gives you the option to drag, copy and practically design every aspect of their looks, so you can give your presentation a very special and unique design. When writing your texts the software gives you infinite options regarding fonts and styles and it is very friendly for aligning, sizing, making titles, etc. Finally, another thing that I like about this software is that it gives you the option to design your own template, saving it for future uses, which will give all your company's presentations a consistent and special appearance.

Cons: Power Point is the most classic and popular software for making presentations and slides and one of the things I dislike about it is that I believe Microsoft could make better efforts for updating the software. Although it is easy to use and there are a lot of options, I consider that the pre-established templates and effects are a bit outdated, specially when there are other softwares available such as Prezi and Google Slides whose presentations are more modern and animated.

Overall: The benefits from Power Point are numerous but I can say that this software has helped me and my co-workers to make presentations that are very dynamic and entertaining, making it easier to give lectures and keeping the attention of the public. Given the infinite options regarding templates, styles and effects our presentations are always unique!

Pros: I've been a Microsoft Office user since the time I was a student in high school, and it's got a legacy to its credit of being the first standard in all sorts of software solutions provided to conceivable necessary common uses in a work environment, for many things to consider in the academics field, through research and presentation of findings and marketing of products and services to audiences of a sit-in capacity, here, in PowerPoint, most notably attended by a lecturer, instructor, or salesman. Throughout the years, PowerPoint has proven itself as the most notable and reliably well-wrought user interface and experience, of building upon legacy versions with commonly released new Office Suites, which suit veteran users well with classy new buttons and updated features that stick within well-known menus and options tables, making transitions from older versions to an updated release comfortable, quick, and seamless, throughout years. Thanks, Microsoft!

Cons: Conceivably, in some ambitious notion of producing a cutting edge presentation of outside of what Microsoft had envisioned as common and extensible user basis and purpose in doing presentations, it's conceivably within appropriate means, as they'd provided. That being said, it's a powerful platform for presentations that, as far as my experience and usage has gone, simply hasn't merited that I would find something improper or lacking in what's offered.

Overall: I've used many Microsoft products for mainly academic usage, earlier on in life, and I've also worked as a gig computer specialist on craigslist, for example, in having some quickness, agility, and insight of as much as being perhaps a bit more take on computer user digital media presentation prowess for a needful advertising outreach client, as it had been, a few times in my post-academic career.

Pros: Despite the fact that more content is probably pushed out through PowerPoint (PP) than any other presentation software in existence, PP still struggles to get respect precisely because it is built to be leveraged by everyone, and not just the design pros in your environment. I've used versions of PP in different environments on and off for twenty plus years. You know what? If I'm not trying to impress an audience with my ultra nouveau formatting and use of whitespace, PP is going to get my content out to the eyes of the people I need to see it with a fraction of the investment in time and frustration as other big-name, pro-type alternatives. PP is the gem of a solution that anyone can work with, but that the dedicated can really get creative with.

Cons: Unless you really want to sink some time into tweaking your presentation, PP presentations will always still look like PP presentations. It's hard to generate "wow factor" when you're working with PP. That said, in most cases, most users probably don't need to. If I had to single out an area for improvement I'd fix on presentation execution - still these years on there's that awkward phase at the beginning of every PP presentation when the presenter is clearly getting PP set up to drive their presentation. Machine learning might if applied usher in a new era for this app where PP acts as a co-presenter as much as a rote presenter of slides. Until then though, when you sit down to watch a PP presentation, you still get to enjoy the PP dance of getting it up and running, botching slide transitions etc. It's not so much the software's fault as the user's, but software should also be commended when it manages to make the user look better, which PP still isn't much for.

Pros: I am a university student, and throughout my entire student career, and throughout my life, PowerPoint has been a great tool for my development as a student. From presentations, slides that I have made in power point. I find the comfort that has been implemented through the different versions, how easy it is to understand the program the first time you use it, and the amount of information that can be placed on a single page. From letters, to drawings, and figures that can be implemented in a single slide. In addition, it contains an animation system that helps make presentations more educational, as well as giving you the opportunity to implement audios, sound effects, among many other tools that power point allows. To finish, I think it's excellent the backward compatibility that exists from an old version to the current ones, where with power point 2010 you can run a PowerPoint 98 file without problems, helping you to recover old documents that you considered lost.

Cons:

It seems to me that the information stored in power point can easily be damaged by a malignant virus. The amount of effects you can add on a slide should have a certain limit since they distract the public if they are used excessively. It also seems to me that when a person is just giving a lecture, it is uncomfortable since he has to be aware of changing each page of the presentation, so I think there should be a kind of clock, which changes the page in a regular way so that the presentation is pleasant and comfortable. And finally, the latest versions do not have a real system of document self-saving, so in a blackout, you completely lose the project you've done on your slides.

Pros: 1. Accessible

2. Fast

3. Filters

4. Save to picture

5. Export features (video, pdf, etc.)

6. Integrates well with all MS office products

Cons: It relies on the tried and true sequential slide format. Could use more robust hyperlinking and trigger functions.

Overall: I used to think that MS PowerPoint was just the tired and true presentation software that I used in high school and college. Since that time, I've come across far better presentation packages, So what does that have to do with PowerPoint? Well, with some thought and determination, PowerPoint can do just about everything that other software can do and so if it's your only choice in presentation software then use it.

I use PowerPoint in an unexpected way. It provides me with a quick and accessible tool for graphics and video generation. I never thought I would turn to PowerPoint as much as I do and in the way that I do. In fact, all of the years of creating PowerPoint presentations where I experimented with graphics and video showed me that I could do quite a lot with PowerPoint because it comes with pre-set filters, the save as picture function, motion paths, and the export to video feature. For simple graphics and animations, I have PowerPoint. Microsoft has an ongoing partnership with Articulate (maker of Storyline, Preso, 360, etc.) and that partnership has given Powerpoint more and more features. The 2016 version is packed with fun and powerful features to be sure and is now possibly the most capable presentation software package out there.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use MS PowerPoint any way you like, but consider that it has rather useful and powerful graphics and animation features.

I used PowerPoint as a high school teacher in the public school system for 15 years and as a pastor.

Pros: PowerPoint is a very versatile piece of software. Not only can a teacher put pertinent information as bullet points, but they could add pictures and graphics and anything else that enhances the overall visual experience. This is proven to assist in student retention of information. Another thing that I really like about PowerPoint is the ability to find a nearly endless supply of amazing templates to make the presentation even better. One thing that I love about PowerPoint is the ability to embed video clips and music clips into the presentation, which again enhances my ability to teach. When I began teaching, we were still using overhead projectors and transparency slides. PowerPoint not only replaced these older presentation methods, but it also surpassed them a thousandfold.

Cons: Like any piece of software, there is a learning curve. It took a while to figure out how to use many features of PowerPoint, and I am pretty sure I still don't know how to use them all. My single biggest complaint with the software is that sometimes for no discernible reason, certain embedded video clips would not play. They were the right format, and they were properly linked within the slides. Yet for some reason they would not play. This happened maybe with 10% of the videos I embedded.

Pros: You could be mistaken for thinking PowerPoint is just for Slideshows, sure, back in the olden days it was purely a bullet-point list maker, but nowadays, the ease-of-use and accessibility of the software has turned it into something much more adaptable.

Want to make a quick flow diagram of a process or an idea? - There's new tools that make this super simple to do. Have some sort of motivational diagram or poster to create that needs to be done quickly but still look ok? - again, if you know what you're doing with the tools you can make stuff that looks way more complex than a standard PowerPoint slideshow.

PowerPoint also has the ability to save as .pdf which makes it invaluable for making brochure like material, flowcharts for development teams, or just something you want to describe visually.

Obviously, it still does slideshows, and you can still bullet-point your way to something that looks fairly professional very quickly, but if you open up to the idea of using it for other types of diagrams it becomes a very adaptable piece of software.

Cons: On the downside, it could use some more keyboard shortcuts for the most used functions (ordering graphics in layers, etc) - and overall, it could have some more layout options, (guides, custom rulers like in Photoshop) - or easier animation options.

But overall, Powerpoint is one of the best bits of software Microsoft currently make, it's very adaptable for representing anything in a visual way (and has basically made Microsoft Visio a redundant piece of software in my opinion)

Overall: It's so versatile that I use it almost daily to construct complex ideas in a visual way.

Pros: I have been using Microsoft PowerPoint from secondary school up until now that I am working, and it never fails to please me.

Innovation

- I started using Microsoft PowerPoint during the time that it has no template yet. So you need search on the internet the designs you want to show in your presentation. Then comes the basic template that made my life easier. Now, they have the myriad of templates that we can choose from and sort depending on the topic you are presenting. Microsoft is very good at innovating and keep up with the needs of the modern world.

Ease of Use

Very easy to use, and I like the fact that when I open the Microsoft PowerPoint on the laptop or computer, it immediately gives me the option to choose what template I want. It also has the option to search for any template I want which is very convenient.

Features & Functionality

- The templates made are composed of myriad designs from the professional looking templates to something playful and vibrant. You have a lot of option to choose from which is perfect.

Customer Support

- Never really need the assistance of the customer support since I haven't had any issues that I can't fix on my own, or the application can't fix on its own.

Cons: My Microsoft PowerPoint is a part of the office 360 bundle. It is good since I can use a lot of devices to synch my login credentials - not only for work but also at home and at school. The only bottleneck is that it is very expensive. Well, we need to pay for something that works well!

Overall: It helped me a lot at work, at school, and at home! I would definitely recommend this product!

Pros: PowerPoint is versatile, adaptable software that adapts to the needs of all people, offers a simple interface, where texts, images, tables, diagrams, and audio and video can be added in a few clicks through hyperlink. Also it contains hundreds of animations to make presentations more entertaining and highlight important aspects, and in recent years have added hundreds of designs for presentations, increasing the range of options for all users. One of the most useful features is the Smart Art with which you can make schemes of processes, cycles and hierarchies in a few clicks. One can even design its own templates.

Cons: I really like everything related to PowerPoint, the most cumbersome work is to include tables in the presentations, since adjusting the sizes of the text is quite complicated, in reality there has never been a direct compatibility in PowerPoint and Excel, since Excel tables they do not automatically adjust to PP and you must make multiple adjustments so that they are displayed accurately in the presentation In addition, when you want to rotate the figures they do not have control in the turn that you may have. On the other hand, the slides when having background figures, figures in general and many texts, become heavy for editing.

Pros: In all of the time that I have been using this software, I have always thought that PowerPoint is one of the easiest to use products on the market today for project presentations. I have used this product on almost a daily basis since I was a wet behind the ears undergraduate in college and continue to use it as I continue to move forward in my career. As someone who has been in training and in teaching, this program is one of the most essential tools in my tool-kit for business and beyond. PowerPoint is a must have!

Cons: The only real con to this program, and this has been improved over the years, is the one on one customer service that is provided by Microsoft for any problems I might have. That aspect of this program could definitely be improved upon. Its true that much of the issues you might have can be solved by looking around online, but often I do not have the time to spend looking around the internet for the answer to a little problem that a one minute call might solve.

Overall: Training the masses is possibly the biggest benefit to having PowerPoint. Whether I am presenting to a new training group or I am teaching a class of 200 students, PowerPoint makes it easy to create, distribute, and show presentations to anyone that has either a projector, flash drive, or an email account. Once again, this program is a must have!

Pros: It seems like most PC users love to use PowerPoint for presentation. I have dealt with many clients in corporations and they all use PowerPoint for presentation, but also just as a notepad to communicate their concept and comments. This program can be used for many purposes such as slideshow etc. PowerPoint offers a Slide Master section where I could set up the basic templates designs for my clients. The user interface has got much better, comparing to a decade ago for me. I use Adobe software mainly, but for clients, PowerPoint is very common and a must-have program. The program offers neat transitions and animations. The users just have to learn how to use them properly and it could enhance the presentation to the next level. Chart feature is very cool as it works with Excel. You can Google PowerPoint templates and the examples can be very impressive.

Cons: As I'm used to using Adobe software, often I feel that PowerPoint's User Interface is limited and not that smooth. Shortcut keys are very limited and I don't think it can be customized. Certain styling in Master Page doesn't make sense or consistent. Ruler/Guides are not that easy to use. I wish they will come up with the ¿better way of dealing with layers.

PowerPoint was once the best, but is now lacking some key features.

Pros: PowerPoint is easy to use. It clearly lets you set up each page with boxes, photos, borders, text etc. It has many options as far as transitions and setting up the slideshow. In other words, it has what you need to do a presentation.

Some of the updates over the years have improved the canned themes and backgrounds.

Cons: Other online based software programs are much more cutting edge as far as their capabilities and look. PowerPoint, in my opinion, has not kept up with the times as far as this goes. Partial transitions need to have more options. Probably my least favorite is the insertion capabilities for videos. The program is very picky about what it will accept and not accept. If it's not an online based video I have to re-insert it when I get to my presentation venue.

Fonts, too, pose a problem. You can save the slideshow as a pdf, which will keep fonts in tact, but then you lose all other capabilities including running videos. Again, if I get to a site that has a computer that doesn't include the fonts used, it's like starting over (usually in a panic).

Microsoft really needs to take a look at what Prezi offers and step up a bit. It's time to make PowerPoint look like it belongs in this generation.

Overall: It does what it needs to do. I can create an effective presentation, but I always feel like it has that boxy look. I am a proficient user and still get frustrated at its limited capabilities sometimes.

If you want sounds and bells and whistles, they're there, but most of us doing professional presentations avoid them.

Since it is the standard in presentation programs, I can rest assured that it will be on another computer if the presentation is taking place outside of my office.

Pros: When you think about creating a presentation or a professional slideshow for your company or client, PowerPoint comes FIRST to mind for many reasons:

-Constant updates to both Office suite and Office365 online PowerPoint

-Easy to use

-Complexity in what you can accomplish with

-Using custom formulas for advanced users

-Universal tool worldwide, everyone knows how to use and open PowerPoint files

-FIRST in the game with most influence in the professional arena

-Certifications, you can be a paid professional certified in this program making a career out of it

-Low usage of computer resources unlike other programs that hog the memory and CPU

Cons: The one con i can think of which might not even be a con is how often Microsoft changed the UI/UX of office products from each update. This could be a personal thing while many other like changes and new things. But, to me personally every new Office like office 2016, i have to spend a few minutes getting accustomed to the new design (I however much say, each new office makes office products much more sleek and modern)

Overall: Highly recommended for all presentations and professional slideshow purposes. Great tool overall to collaborate as well with other professional online creating slides using Officer365 online

Pros: Power Point is a useful digital tool for the elaboration of corporate and academic presentations in a colorful way, it helps to present information in an organized way including, tables, forms, images. Package of predetermined designs are very attractive and does not limit the creativity of the user. The more we use and know the program, but are the options and benefits that we can get from this tool, its functions are endless and very attractive that significantly help improve our presentations whether for our jobs or studies, powerpoint is a software very friendly with the user can also be downloaded to smart mobile devices, which we can use whenever we need it and we do not have a computer.

Cons: I have not had contras with the program, the few times I thought I could not do any activity or lacked a certain function, it turned out that if I had it and did not know it, especially when I started using the smartart graphic elements, I could not edit or make changes without losing the format, so it is important to know the program and its many features, each time we can learn more about the program and get more out of it, not only allows presentations, it also allows you to design and create images or drawings, as long as we have creativity and willingness to learn we can make the most of this product.

Overall: I have obtained several benefits, first is the knowledge to learn how to use this tool, in the work it has allowed me to respond to certain requirements by my superiors and present reports with graphics, academically it has been very useful when presenting exhibitions, it is a excellent tool for project presentations.

Pros: What is great about power point is it makes your presentations come to life. It can make the difference when you are deep in sales and marketing. I had to show how sales where being influenced by our new techniques and power point absolutely helped. Was able to put some animation into the report and with the features on power point enhanced it. For some people who were not able to attend the meeting was able to send the entire presentation by email which was handy. I was also able to print it out to each attendee so they could follow along more easier. I really liked the graphics that was able to use with power point which really impressed everyone.

Cons: With the good also came with some issues. I had to make sure my equipment(laptop) was able to handle it. Sometimes it can be too much for your machine. Had the fear that my machine would stall with the software commanding a lot of memory but it worked out fine. One thing I made sure had to watch out was that Power point can dazzle people so much it can drown out what your trying to present. So may tune you out so you have to provide strong commentary. Overall it was a challenge but would say the bark is stronger than the bite with Power point.

Overall: The graphics and animation that was able to incorporate that brings any dull topic/subject and brings it to life. It has picked up any meeting that I was involved in. Usually this software would scare many people off but it has gotten more user friendly. It does take some time to get it together but I took my time. What was easier for me was I had a powerful laptop so the machine didn't succumb to the software. Also with the features it takes the edge off your nervousness when you are presenting.

Pros: 1. Easy to learn and use the software. Integrated to other MS Tools for importing data and can be converted to PDF Format for presentations in mobile devices.

2. Allows us to make creative and visually appealing presentations through animations, sound effects etc.

3. Presenter view is amazing and helps us in preparing for the presentation.

Cons: 1. Default PowerPoint themes, animation effects haven't improved much in the last 10 years. MacOS offers better features compared to PowerPoint in this regard.

2. Using Hyperlinks in PowerPoint is a little tricky. If the document contains links of videos, images or documents which are to be opened in the middle of the presentation, We need to ensure that those supporting files are transferred along with PowerPoint document. They aren't embedded directly into the presentation. May be adding a preview option of the supporting document (without increasing file size) could be helpful.

3. There could be compatibility issues while using the powerpoint document with various versions of the software. So it's important to check the final document in the PC through which the presentation is to be made and do necessary corrections.

Overall: Helped in sharing ideas and information with others. It's a time saver.

Pros: I love how PowerPoint gives you set themes that you can work off of in their software. It can be difficult to create themes from scratch, so having a general guideline is very helpful. I also love the different transitions that PowerPoint offers. These are incredibly useful in keeping the PowerPoint interesting when I present to younger audiences. However, my favorite feature of this software deals with shapes. Not only can you use shapes in PowerPoint, but you can edit them too. The ability to edit shapes allows for the creation of your own themes and styles. This is most useful for my business and professional slideshows, where real value is on the online. Overall, it's a great software and the leader in its field.

Cons: There is nothing that I truly dislike about PowerPoint. The learning curve is very minimal for this software, and does not take much getting used to. From those that I've spoken to about PowerPoint, they suggest that the software could use some better themes. Personally, I do not see this as a problem if you are able to create your own themes. However, some beginner users would like more variety when it comes to their themes/backgrounds, because they are not skilled enough to make their own. Other than this, I see no problems.

Overall: Ability to convey information in a clean and professional manner; ability to alter shapes and designs to create your own themes; ability to create notes for presentations so that you don't have to memorize everything; ability to collaborate and mark changes on other users' slideshows; ability to create your own elements of PowerPoint through VBA.

Pros: Microsoft PowerPoint is an easy to use product of Microsoft. It has given me an ease at doing my work on PowerPoint. It let me create outstanding presentations and its bundle of functions allow me to add more interesting things on my presentation. Let me tell you first how easy to use it. I started using it since I was a student and when I saw this software first I thought this is not going to be a useful application but after working with it. In very short time I realized this is the software is going to improve my professional life. Because what I think can be explain by this software no doubt very easily.

This software is full of many features but the most wonderful feature is the arranging images function that allows me to set pictures in any way and bring them in front on just a click. So it has got so many wonderful features.

Cons: If I talk about the time when I started using this software it has some issues but the way Microsoft developed that is incredible, because it has been more useful than before. So I do not think so it has any con. Fortunately I have got this software for creating presentations which work like a communicator by it¿s on.

Pros: Powerpoint is much more versatile than you might think or remember. A few years ago our office moved to a popular online presentation software because of perceived limitations with Powerpoint. After using this other software for a few years, we were able to see that it was no better and had other limitations. Moving back to PowerPoint we found features we either didn't realize were available or that had been added during our time away. There are multiple transitions and animations that can make your presentations look less like a PowerPoint and more polished. The key to using these transitions and animations is to make them subtle. Also being able to see and move layers around in PowerPoint visually is an amazing plus that I don't remember being able to do in the past.

Cons: There are still some things you can't easily do like having one large background that you move around in as your presentation space, but if you feel the need to have this after using other software, there are ways to fake it.

Overall: It has allowed us to create a custom presentation that blows others away. The potential for this software is definitely underrated, probably from years of watching the same type of presentation.

Pros: The facility to create a layout with templates adapted to the corporate design, in our company we have used the image of the company creating the layouts and using them with a simple access of each one of the sheets so that all the presentations have the same style.

It is very easy to create a presentation that contains audio, texts or attachments that we use to give talks and to deliver the material to the attendees with the presentation in ppt inside each sheet has embeded files, world, excel, pdf etc.

The variety of animations that we have available if we want to put together with effects and sounds the transition of the presentation

From the agenda we can create hyperlinks to the sheets that have the information of the subject to be treated and from that sheet a hyperlink to come back to the agenda.

depending on the presentation I used the option to save it as Macro-Enabled Presentation (.pptm) that you can not make changes to the file or simply save it as pdf are options that work for me when sharing presentations to clients or colleagues and that do not I want them to be altered.

Cons: If the presentation has a lot of information of images or videos, the file can be very big and run the risk of being broken or to transfer it or share it you must do it by means of a pendrive or sharing through a cloud that in my case use onedrive.

Overall: Have in a single ppt template all the layouts of the presentation models that we use and maintain the same style and source of work to maintain harmony and corporate image
