Collaborating and Finishing Your Presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint 2013

Broadcasting your presentation online

Now, with PowerPoint 2013, you can share your finished presentation with people all over the globe by broadcasting it live online if you’re logged on using your Microsoft Account. Because people can view the presentation in their web browsers, they don’t even need to have PowerPoint installed in order to view it.

Present your presentation online

  1. On the ribbon, tap File to display the Backstage view.

  2. Tap the Share tab.

  3. Choose Present Online.

    The Present Online pane opens on the right side of the screen.

  4. Tap the drop-down arrow to choose the presentation service that you want to use.

    Choose Microsoft Lync if your colleagues are all Lync contacts; choose Office Presentation Service if those viewing your presentation will be viewing your presentation in their browser windows. If you are not using Office 2013 as part of Office 365, you might see only Office Presentation Service for this option.

  5. Tap Present Online.

  6. If you choose the Office Presentation Service, the Present Online dialog box appears, displaying the link for the presentation.

  7. Tap Copy Link to copy the link and paste it into an instant message to send to participants.

  8. Alternatively, tap Send In Email to send the link in an email message to others.

  9. Tap Start Presentation. PowerPoint launches the presentation and you can use the navigation controls to page through it normally. Tap Exit Presentation in the navigation controls when you’re finished presenting online.
