How to Create Dynamic PowerPoint Presentations with Slide, Summary, and Section Zoom

(Note: S uitable for users of PowerPoint 2016, 2019, 2021, and PowerPoint for Microsoft 365 . )

Use Slide, Summary and Section Zoom to create a dynamic slide deck that allows people to choose their own path through a presentation.

Slide Summary and Section Zoom Explained

Slide, Summary, and Section Zoom are three ‘new-ish’ tools available to users of PowerPoint 2019, 2021, and PowerPoint for Microsoft 365. So, what are these Zoom tools, and why are they useful?

Slide, Summary, and Section Zoom help bring our presentations to life. They make slides more dynamic and exciting and give our clients and customers the opportunity to choose their own path through the presentation. Goodbye linear, flat slide decks – hello dynamic, flexible content!

When we create a Zoom in PowerPoint, we can jump to and from specific slides, portions, and sections of the presentation in whatever order we please. This is helpful if we present a slide deck to an audience, as we can seamlessly dive in and out of sections. It’s also great if we have emailed a presentation to a client. They can choose how they want to move through the presentation and drill down quickly to the information of interest to them without clicking through 50+ irrelevant slides.

For example, we could have a presentation showcasing some new products to launch. We could add a slide to the deck that has an image of each product and then create a zoom so customers can click the image and zoom to the relevant slide or section.

We can create three types of zoom: Summary, Section, and Slide. We can find these tools on the Insert tab in the Zoom group.

In this article, we will take a look at all of them to identify the differences.

Summary Zoom

Selection zoom, change image, return to zoom, zoom styles and effects.

Summary Zoom is a landing page where we can see parts of our presentation all at once. We get to specify which parts of the presentation are included in the summary Zoom. We can zoom from one place in the presentation to another, skip ahead or revisit slides without interrupting the flow of the presentation.

When we create a summary zoom, a new section will be added to the presentation titled ‘Summary’.

Let’s take a look at Summary Zoom in action.

  • From the Insert tab in the Links group, click the lower half of the Zoom button.
  • Click Summary Zoom .

The Insert Summary Zoom window will open.

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

  • Select the beginning slide of each section.

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

  • Click Insert .

A new summary slide is inserted into the presentation in a new section titled‘ Summary Section’. The selected slides show as clickable thumbnails and can be used in a similar way to a table of contents.

In this example, our customers/clients can choose which presentation tip they are most interested to read about and jump directly to that section of the slide deck.

  • Press F5 to run the slide show.
  • Click on any slide thumbnail.

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

PowerPoint will jump to that slide with a nice zoom-in effect. We can move through the rest of the section slides by clicking the mouse as normal. Once we get to the next section, PowerPoint will zoom us back out to the thumbnail page.

Section Zoom is similar to Summary Zoom in many respects. We can use a Section Zoom to dive in and dive out of different sections of our presentation. Sections help us manage long presentations by splitting the slides into manageable ‘chunks’ of related content.

For section Zoom to work correctly, ensure you have sections added to your presentation.

A difference between Section Zoom and Summary Zoom is that Section Zoom doesn’t create a summary slide of thumbnails. Instead, the clickable thumbnails will show on whichever slide we have selected in the presentation.

  • Click on the slide where the thumbnails should appear.
  • Click Section Zoom .

The Insert Section Zoom window will open.

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

  • Select the slides to insert.
  • Click the Insert button.

In this example, I have positioned the thumbnails in the bottom corners of the slide so users can click to jump to the next section or click to go back to the previous section.

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

Slide Zoom works in a similar way to Summary and Section Zoom. Slide Zoom does not create a summary page of thumbnails; our presentation doesn’t need to be divided into sections.

Slide Zoom lets us add individual slides as thumbnails to an existing slide so users can jump easily between different slides in the presentation.

  • Click Slide Zoom .

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

  • Press the F5 key to run the slide show.

Zoom Options

Section, Summary, and Slide Zooms can be customized using the Zoom ribbon.

We can change the size of the zoom, change the image, modify the zoom style, add a border, and much more.

When we insert a zoom, we will always get a thumbnail view of the slide or section we are zooming in to. We might want to use a different image as our Zoom thumbnail. In this example, we are going to use a PowerPoint icon.

  • Click on any thumbnail.
  • From the Zoom tab, click the arrow next to Change Image in the Zoom Options group.
  • Click Change Image .
  • Click From Icons .
  • Select an Icon from the gallery.

The slide thumbnail has now been replaced with an icon.

Return to Zoom controls the running order of the slides in the presentation. For example, if we have created a summary Zoom and we want to zoom back out to the main thumbnail page once we’ve finished moving through the slides in the first section, we need to turn on Return to Zoom.

  • From the Zoom tab, in the Zoom Options group, check the box next to Return to Zoom .

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

We can apply zoom styles and effects to our thumbnails.

  • In the Zoom tab, click the drop-down arrow in the Zoom Styles group.
  • Select a style from the gallery.

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

We can add a simple border around the outside of each thumbnail.

  • Select one or more of the thumbnails.
  • From the Zoom tab, in the Zoom Style group, click the drop-down arrow next to Zoom Border.
  • Select Weight .
  • Choose a line thickness.
  • Click the drop-down arrow next to Zoom Border .
  • Choose a color from the palette.

How-To Geek

6 ways to create more interactive powerpoint presentations.

Engage your audience with cool, actionable features.

Quick Links

  • Add a QR code
  • Embed Microsoft Forms (Education or Business Only)
  • Embed a Live Web Page
  • Add Links and Menus
  • Add Clickable Images to Give More Info
  • Add a Countdown Timer

We've all been to a presentation where the speaker bores you to death with a mundane PowerPoint presentation. Actually, the speaker could have kept you much more engaged by adding some interactive features to their slideshow. Let's look into some of these options.

1. Add a QR code

Adding a QR code can be particularly useful if you want to direct your audience to an online form, website, or video.

Some websites have in-built ways to create a QR code. For example, on Microsoft Forms , when you click "Collect Responses," you'll see the QR code option via the icon highlighted in the screenshot below. You can either right-click the QR code to copy and paste it into your presentation, or click "Download" to add it to your device gallery to insert the QR code as a picture.

In fact, you can easily add a QR code to take your viewer to any website. On Microsoft Edge, right-click anywhere on a web page where there isn't already a link, and left-click "Create QR Code For This Page."

You can also create QR codes in other browsers, such as Chrome.

You can then copy or download the QR code to use wherever you like in your presentation.

2. Embed Microsoft Forms (Education or Business Only)

If you plan to send your PPT presentation to others—for example, if you're a trainer sending step-by-step instruction presentation, a teacher sending an independent learning task to your students, or a campaigner for your local councilor sending a persuasive PPT to constituents—you might want to embed a quiz, questionnaire, pole, or feedback survey in your presentation.

In PowerPoint, open the "Insert" tab on the ribbon, and in the Forms group, click "Forms". If you cannot see this option, you can add new buttons to the ribbon .

As at April 2024, this feature is only available for those using their work or school account. We're using a Microsoft 365 Personal account in the screenshot below, which is why the Forms icon is grayed out.

Then, a sidebar will appear on the right-hand side of your screen, where you can either choose a form you have already created or opt to craft a new form.

Now, you can share your PPT presentation with others , who can click the fields and submit their responses when they view the presentation.

3. Embed a Live Web Page

You could always screenshot a web page and paste that into your PPT, but that's not a very interactive addition to your presentation. Instead, you can embed a live web page into your PPT so that people with access to your presentation can interact actively with its contents.

To do this, we will need to add an add-in to our PPT account .

Add-ins are not always reliable or secure. Before installing an add-in to your Microsoft account, check that the author is a reputable company, and type the add-in's name into a search engine to read reviews and other users' experiences.

To embed a web page, add the Web Viewer add-in ( this is an add-in created by Microsoft ).

Go to the relevant slide and open the Web Viewer add-in. Then, copy and paste the secure URL into the field box, and remove https:// from the start of the address. In our example, we will add a selector wheel to our slide. Click "Preview" to see a sample of the web page's appearance in your presentation.

This is how ours will look.

When you or someone with access to your presentation views the slideshow, this web page will be live and interactive.

4. Add Links and Menus

As well as moving from one slide to the next through a keyboard action or mouse click, you can create links within your presentation to direct the audience to specific locations.

To create a link, right-click the outline of the clickable object, and click "Link."

In the Insert Hyperlink dialog box, click "Place In This Document," choose the landing destination, and click "OK."

What's more, to make it clear that an object is clickable, you can use action buttons. Open the "Insert" tab on the ribbon, click "Shape," and then choose an appropriate action button. Usefully, PPT will automatically prompt you to add a link to these shapes.

You might also want a menu that displays on every slide. Once you have created the menu, add the links using the method outlined above. Then, select all the items, press Ctrl+C (copy), and then use Ctrl+V to paste them in your other slides.

5. Add Clickable Images to Give More Info

Through PowerPoint's animations, you can give your viewer the power to choose what they see and when they see it. This works nicely whether you're planning to send your presentation to others to run through independently or whether you're presenting in front of a group and want your audience to decide which action they want to take.

Start by creating the objects that will be clickable (trigger) and the items that will appear (pop-up).

Then, select all the pop-ups together. When you click "Animations" on the ribbon and choose an appropriate animation for the effect you want to achieve, this will be applied to all objects you have selected.

The next step is to rename the triggers in your presentation. To do this, open the "Home" tab, and in the Editing group, click "Select", and then "Selection Pane."

With the Selection Pane open, select each trigger on your slide individually, and rename them in the Selection Pane, so that they can be easily linked to in the next step.

Finally, go back to the first pop-up. Open the "Animations" tab, and in the Advanced Animation group, click the "Trigger" drop-down arrow. Then, you can set the item to appear when a trigger is clicked in your presentation.

If you want your item to disappear when the trigger is clicked again, select the pop-up, click "Add Animation" in the Advanced Animation group, choose an Exit animation, and follow the same step to link that animation to the trigger button.

6. Add a Countdown Timer

A great way to get your audience to engage with your PPT presentation is to keep them on edge by adding a countdown timer. Whether you're leading a presentation and want to let your audience stop to discuss a topic, or running an online quiz with time-limit questions, having a countdown timer means your audience will keep their eye on your slide throughout.

To do this, you need to animate text boxes or shapes containing your countdown numbers. Choose and format a shape and type the highest number that your countdown clock will need. In our case, we're creating a 10-second timer.

Now, with your shape selected, open the "Animations" tab on the ribbon and click the animation drop-down arrow. Then, in the Exit menu, click "Disappear."

Open the Animation Pane, and click the drop-down arrow next to the animation you've just added. From there, choose "Timing."

Make sure "On Click" is selected in the Start menu, and change the Delay option to "1 second," before clicking "OK."

Then, with this shape still selected, press Ctrl+C (copy), and then Ctrl+V (paste). In the second box, type 9 . With the Animation Pane still open and this second shape selected, click the drop-down arrow and choose "Timing" again. Change the Start option to "After Previous," and make sure the Delay option is 1 second. Then, click "OK."

We can now use this second shape as our template, as when we copy and paste it again, the animations will also duplicate. With this second shape selected, press Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V, type 8 into the box, and continue to do the same until you get to 0 .

Next, remove the animations from the "0" box, as you don't want this to disappear. To do this, click the shape, and in the Animation Pane drop-down, click "Remove."

You now need to layer them in order. Right-click the box containing number 1, and click "Bring To Front." You will now see that box on the top. Do the same with the other numbers in ascending order.

Finally, you need to align the objects together. Click anywhere on your slide and press Ctrl+A. Then, in the Home tab on the ribbon, click "Arrange." First click "Align Center," and then bring the menu up again, so that you can click "Align Middle."

Press Ctrl+A again to select your timer, and you can then move your timer or copy and paste it elsewhere.

Press F5 to see the presentation in action, and when you get to the slide containing the timer, click anywhere on the slide to see your countdown timer in action!

Now that your PPT presentation is more interactive, make sure you've avoided these eight common presentational mistakes before you present your slides.

How to Make an Interactive PowerPoint Presentation: An Expert Guide (Free Downloadable Playbook)

Are your PowerPoint presentations lacking impact and failing to engage your audience? You’re not alone. I experienced that before. I used to spend hours carefully crafting the perfect PowerPoint presentations only to be met with disinterested faces.

In a world where attention spans are getting shorter, traditional PowerPoint presentations often struggle to hold the interest of the audience. So here’s the hard truth: unless you adapt and embrace interactivity in your PowerPoint presentations, your valuable hard work and content run the risk of getting lost in presentations.

Fret not, as in this comprehensive guide, we will share with you expert tips on how to make an interactive PowerPoint presentation through interactive animations, transitions, hyperlinks, quizzes, games, and many more.

And perhaps the sweetest part of the deal is that you will also have access to a downloadable playbook of 60+ pages with a wealth of tutorials, templates, cheat sheets, resources and tools to elevate your PowerPoint skills from average to extraordinary through interactive PowerPoint presentations.

Are you prepared to impress those who once found your presentation dull? If your answer is a resounding ‘yes,’ then let’s begin.

What is an Interactive Presentation?

What is an interactive powerpoint presentation.

Interactive PowerPoint presentations are simply PowerPoint presentations that are made interactive to convey information in a more dynamic and engaging manner.

Creating an interactive PowerPoint presentation involves deciding if you want to make your slide content interactive or if you want your audience to interact with your slides. 

Interactive PowerPoint presentations can generally be divided into two main dimensions: interaction with slide content through interactive elements and fostering interaction with the audience.

Two Types of Interactive PowerPoint Presentations

Interaction with Slide Content:

In the first dimension, PowerPoint presentations are made interactive through enhancing the slides content with interactive elements, usually native to PowerPoint. 

We will cover interactive elements including:

  • Transitions
  • Interactive data visualization
  • Annotations. 

They function to enhance slide interactivity through adding movement to static objects, enabling non-linear slides navigation, as well as adding a dynamic touch to data and information presentation. 

Audience Interaction:

In the second dimension, PowerPoint presentations are made interactive through interaction between the presenter and the audience, usually with the help of PowerPoint add-in tools. We will cover: 

  • Assessments
  • Brainstorming
  • Collaborative multimedia uploading

Once you have decided which strategy you would like to use, you can then follow  these step-by-step guide  and the following expert tips to turn your PowerPoint slides into an interactive experience!

Benefits of an Interactive Presentation

The fact that you are still reading this suggests that you don’t need further convincing on the benefits of interactive PowerPoint presentations. 

However, if you do, here are some quick statistics:

68% of individuals hold the belief that interactive presentations have a greater potential for being remembered. Webinar Care

This means that a simple action of making your PowerPoint slides interactive has a profound impact on how your presentation is received by the audience. From our years of experience creating interactive PowerPoint presentations, they generally: 

  • Increases  engagement , motivation and knowledge  retention . 
  • Result in better  impression  and more impactful messaging being conveyed.
  • Allow presenters to better tailor their content or offerings to the audience or clients because they can gather  real-time feedback .
  • Open up room for  creative   storytelling  and showcases.

Expert Tips on How to Make an Interactive PowerPoint Presentation – Before Presenting

1. add animations, but use them judiciously.

The first and most straightforward way of making your PowerPoint presentations interactive is through adding animations to your slides. However, so many people use PowerPoint animations the wrong way. PowerPoint animations are more than just making bullet points or images appear or fly in during your presentation.

Remember, using animations excessively in your PowerPoint presentation will only reduce the appeal and professionalism of your slides. The key is to use them judiciously and purposefully. Before you hit the “Animations” tab, ask yourself, “Does this animation enhance the message I want to convey to my audience?”  

2. Add 3D PowerPoint Animations Using PowerPoint Native 3D Stock Elements

Did you know that PowerPoint has free animated 3D elements you can use? We recommend you to try them up to instantly upgrade your presentation from ordinary to extraordinary. 

❓ How?  Simply go to Insert > 3D models > stock 3D models > animated models. And you will find a wide range of free 3D models ranging from food and animals to plants and characters, and many more. You can also select different animation scenes by heading to the Animations tab.

3. Add Animations With Triggers for Visual Excitement

You can take your PowerPoint animations up a notch by incorporating combining animations with triggers to create interactive pop-ups with extra information . These on-click pop-ups are valuable when presenting a map or when you want to explore specific aspects of an object or topic in more detail. You can also use these pop-ups as markers to alert the audience to exciting elements within different parts of the slide, as such: 

❓How? To create on-click pop-ups in your PowerPoint slides, first add shapes that will become clickable buttons, one to “open” the pop-up and the other to “close” the pop-up. Then, add text boxes with extra information you want to show, as well as entrance and exit animations. Combine the animations with “triggers” to activate the animations when the open or close buttons are clicked on. 

For a more detailed tutorial on this pop-up animation, download our Interactive PowerPoint Playbook  below. 👇

4. add non-linear slide transition.

A quick way to add interactivity to your PowerPoint slides is by using PowerPoint transitions. The first we want to discuss is PowerPoint Zoom. PowerPoint Zoom enables you to zoom in and out of and navigate to specific sections or slides on click, anytime during your presentation.

To  access the PowerPoint Zoom feature : click on Insert in the  PowerPoint ribbon  >  Zoom  > then choose  Slide ,  Section , or  Summary   Zoom . Each of these PowerPoint Zoom option serves slightly different functions:

  • Slide Zoom: zooms into specific slides
  • Section zoom: zooms into specific sections
  • Summary Zoom: creates a summary slide for the different slides or sections in your PowerPoint presentation for easy navigation.

PowerPoint Slide Zoom

❓ How? To  set up PowerPoint slide zoom , select the starting slide where you wish to implement the Zoom effect. Next, click  Insert  >  Zoom  >  Slide Zoom . Here, you can pick the specific slide or slides you want to zoom in on. Click the Insert button, and thumbnails of the chosen slides will be added to your current slide.

Alternatively, for a more manual setup process, you can also set up a navigation menu at the beginning of your presentation that allows the audience to jump to different sections or slides using hyperlinks.  Read more in the Hyperlinks section below. 

5. Add PowerPoint Morph

Like PowerPoint Zoom, PowerPoint Morph empowers presenters to create dynamic transitions that elevate the visual storytelling in their presentations. But PowerPoint Morph brings storytelling to a whole new level and adds a layer of intrigue to your slides by simulating object transitions or evolution across slides. It functions similarly to animations but offers a smoother and more organic visual experience, without the need for complex setup steps. 

Personally, we think the outcomes generated by PowerPoint Morph are more professional and polished-looking as compared to traditional animations. And if you are looking for a more advanced-looking presentation, try this 3D morph animation In PowerPoint .

We’d also like to share with you the numerous applications of PowerPoint Morph contributed by our colleagues and PowerPoint professionals at ClassPoint:

  • Moving background
  • Rotating wheel
  • Rotating cogs
  • Photo gallery
  • Slide Zoom with Morph
  • Creative reveal
  • Parallax effect
  • Continuous slide transition
  • Phone frame
  • Movie frame

Gain access to free templates for all these PowerPoint Morph applications and effects by downloading our Interactive PowerPoint Playbook. 👇

6. add hyperlinks – they can link to so many more places than just websites.

Much like PowerPoint Zoom, hyperlinks enable presenters to create interactive menus and navigation structures, allowing audiences to jump to specific slides or sections effortlessly. However, while PowerPoint Zoom primarily focuses on creating a visual and interactive overview of content within a single presentation, hyperlinks extend this capability to connect with external resources, web content, or even additional PowerPoint files. 

There are a few ways you could add hyperlinks to your PowerPoint presentation to transform  it into an interactive experience effortlessly: 

Ways to use PowerPoint hyperlinks

4 Ways You Can Add Hyperlinks to PowerPoint: 

  • Slide Transition : You can navigate to specific slides in a non-linear manner by simply inserting a hyperlink into your current slide. Head over to Insert > Link > This Document and select the slide you want to link to. You can apply hyperlinks to text, shapes, or pictures. 

PowerPoint hyperlinks for slide transition

  • Interactive Navigation Menu : Adding an interactive navigation menu at the beginning of your presentation allows clear navigation between different slides and sections in your presentation. Head over to Insert > Link > This Document and select the slides you want to link to.

PowerPoint hyperlinks for navigation menu

  • Action Buttons : With hyperlinks, you can also create Action Buttons in your PowerPoint presentations to make your PowerPoint slides behave like interactive web pages, allowing users to navigate, explore, and engage with the content in a dynamic and user-friendly manner. Head over to Insert > Action Buttons and choose from the selection.

  • Embedded Content : You can also hyperlink your PowerPoint slides to embedded content like PDFs, spreadsheets, and even web pages. Simply click Insert > Object and select the file you would like to embed in your PowerPoint slides. This way, you can remove the hassle of toggling between various files or windows during your presentation.

Expert Tips on How to Make an Interactive PowerPoint Presentation – When Presenting

1. turn your powerpoint slides into interactive quizzes.

The traditional way to add interactive quizzes to PowerPoint is through an unfavorable process of combining complex animations with triggers and hyperlinks. Let’s be honest, it takes an eternity! Even though PowerPoint offers an extensive range of presentation tools, it does not have audience interactivity built at its core. 

The good news is, audience interactivity can actually be effortlessly achieved with the various PowerPoint add-ins as listed below: 

We will get to polls and games in a bit. For now, let’s show you how you can turn your PowerPoint slides into an interactive quiz in a just a few clicks with PowerPoint add-ins like  ClassPoint , which offers a wide range of interactive quizzes from  Short Answer  and  Word Cloud , to Multiple Choice questions.

How to Create An Interactive Quiz in PowerPoint In A Few Clicks

Once you have downloaded ClassPoint, you will have a suite of additional interactive quiz features added to your PowerPoint ribbon. 

ClassPoint toolbar

To turn  your PowerPoint slide  content into interactive  quizzes, simply  click on any of the interactive quiz features and add them to your slide. Enter PowerPoint Slideshow mode and you can start the quiz immediately. 

2. Run Gradable Assessments inside PowerPoint

With the versatile PowerPoint add-in,  ClassPoint , you can also create assessments and collect real-time responses right inside PowerPoint. This is wonderful news for teachers! All you have to do is set up  interactive Multiple Choice questions  and enable  Quiz Mode . 

Interactive Assessment in PowerPoint using ClassPoint Quiz Mode

ClassPoint’s Quiz Mode introduces an  automatic grading  feature to your Multiple Choice questions within PowerPoint presentations created with ClassPoint. This feature not only automates the grading process but also includes automatic star ratings, the option to select difficulty levels, and provides a quiz summary along with an exportable quiz report, making it the perfect tool for classroom formative assessments in PowerPoint!

3. Incorporate Annotations During Slideshow

Another unique way to interact with your PowerPoint slides is through the use of annotations. With annotations, you as the presenter can interact with your slides to draw your audience’s attention to specific details, highlight key points, and tell a more coherent story. 

There are 3 ways you could use annotations in PowerPoint: 

  • PowerPoint Draw Tab:  To utilize the PowerPoint Draw Tab, click on the “Draw” tab in your PowerPoint ribbon and begin annotating anywhere on your slides using built-in features like the pen, highlighter, and Ink to Shape. However, please note that PowerPoint Draw only allows annotation in Edit mode.

  • PowerPoint Pen Tools:  Another option for native PowerPoint annotation tools that permit annotation during slideshow mode can be found by clicking the pencil icon located in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen during a presentation. You can use the pen, highlighter, or laser tools to annotate any part of your slides during the presentation.

  • ClassPoint  Toolbar:  The ClassPoint toolbar serves as an enhanced, free alternative to PowerPoint’s existing pen tools. It offers a broader range of additional annotation features, including text boxes, shapes, spotlight effects, fully customizable pens and highlighters, and more. This enables you to transform your PowerPoint slides into a creative canvas that will captivate your audience throughout your presentation.

4. Run Ice Breakers and Brainstorming Sessions in PowerPoint

The uses of interactive PowerPoint add-ins like  ClassPoint  are not only limited to teaching and learning. Give your PowerPoint meetings and presentations a strong start with a collaborative and dynamic brainstorming experience.

You can enhance your PowerPoint presentations and turn them into an interactive brainstorming experience by incorporating  Word Cloud  in PowerPoint, inviting participants to instantly contribute ideas, keywords, or concepts. This allows everyone to dynamically visualize emerging trends and interesting ideas.

❓ How? To start a brainstorming session in PowerPoint, click on the “Word Cloud”  button in your PowerPoint ribbon once you have downloaded ClassPoint to add the “Word Cloud” feature in your PowerPoint slides. Then enter PowerPoint slideshow mode to start brainstorming! 

5. Add Draggable Slide Objects (And Why It’s Better than Animations!)

Similar to animations, draggable objects allow you to interact with your slide objects freely during slideshow mode, except than you can do so with full control of where you want the slide elements to go!

This dynamic presentation feature adds an element of visual interest that captures your audience’s attention and can be a valuable tool for explaining complex ideas. Moreover, it has the potential to serve various purposes, such as revealing hidden information or acting as a movable marker to indicate your position on the slide content. You can also use it for group drag-and-drop activities, such as matching, categorizing, sorting, and more. You can either perform these actions yourself to provide a visual explanation or engage your audience by letting them instruct the movement of images and text on the slide.

❓ How? Draggable objects is a unique tool that is possible inside PowerPoint with the use of the add-in ClassPoint. Download ClassPoint, free PowerPoint add-in, the select any shape, image, illustration, or text on your slide to become draggable by clicking on “Draggable Objects” in your PowerPoint ribbon, and toggling “Drag enabled” on the side panel.

In slideshow mode, click on the draggable objects hand from the ClassPoint toolbar at the bottom of your screen to start dragging your slide objects around!

6. Create Playable Games In PowerPoint (Without Animations or Hyperlinks)

Much like interactive quizzes, PowerPoint games add a layer of interactivity and fun to PowerPoint presentations. However, what sets PowerPoint games apart is their ability to introduce competition through gamification. 

Here are  3 ways  you can instantly gamify your PowerPoint slides with  gamification elements :

  • Set Up a Point and Reward System : Define how your participants can earn stars and points, and  award stars  to them when they have accomplished a goal during your presentation. 
  • Add  Levels and Badges  to PowerPoint : Every game benefits from having levels and badges, and your PowerPoint game is no exception. You can create a simple game within PowerPoint by incorporating  questions  into your slides and defining the points and scores needed to progress to higher levels. When it comes to badges, you have the creative freedom to tailor them to your audience. For example, in an educational setting, badges can be skill-focused, while in a social gathering, they can take the form of fantasy characters that participants aspire to collect
  • Add a  Leaderboard  to PowerPoint : Leaderboards are essential to keep track of scores or points during a PowerPoint game. You can of course create a manual leaderboard using PowerPoint’s tables and hyperlinks, but an easier and more straightforward way of implementing a leaderboard in your PowerPoint is using add-ins like  ClassPoint  and  Vevox .

With these fundamentals of gamification in place, you are now ready to create fun and exhilarating games in PowerPoint. 

Here is a full walk-through on  how you can create a PowerPoint game  in a few simple steps. 

If you are an educator, this  free trivia PowerPoint template and these 5 interactive PowerPoint game templates tailored for the classroom will be useful for you.

Expert Tips on How to Make an Interactive PowerPoint Presentation – After Presenting

1. run real-time polls in powerpoint.

Think of a memorable presentation you have attended? Did it use live polls? We bet it did! Live polling are especially helpful after a PowerPoint presentation to gather feedback for future improvement.

Traditional poll tools require presenters to switch between tabs during presentation. Thanks to PowerPoint add-ins such as  ClassPoint ,  Mentimeter  and  Poll Everywhere , this is no longer the case. And by eliminating the need to switch between different applications or tabs, the presentation experience becomes more fluid and engaging.

2. From Static to Interactive Data Visualisation

Incorporating interactivity through data visualization after a presentation concludes is a potent strategy for enhancing audience engagement and comprehension. Once the primary content delivery is complete, you can transition into a dynamic display of data or feedback you have gathered from your audience using interactive charts, graphs, or infographics.

This approach empowers your audience to explore the information at their own pace, dig deeper into specific data points, and ensure a two-way communication between the presenter and the audience. Whether it’s zooming in on specific trends, toggling between different data sets, or going through feedback, interactive data visualization encourages active participation and a deeper connection with the presented information. 

We recommend the following 2 ways to display data into your presentation:

  • Insert tables, charts and graphs, and add a touch of interactivity through animations.

Below is a list of 10 PowerPoint animations most suitable for different kinds of graphs and charts: 

  • Embed a website with data you want to go over. I’m not talking about a link that leaves PowerPoint for your default browser, but an actual embedded browser that loads your websites without leaving PowerPoint! Plus you can insert the page as a picture into your slide and start annotating on it!

Now that you have a collection of strategies and tips at your disposal, you are better prepared to leave your old and dusty PowerPoint toolkit behind and embrace these refreshing ideas. Whether your ultimate aim is to create a captivating classroom experience, deliver a memorable business pitch, or simply wow your friends and peers during  PowerPoint nights , don’t forget to: 

  • Add animations, but use them sparingly.
  • Make use of non-linear transitions and storytelling. 
  • Turn simple transitions into stunning visual experience with PowerPoint Morph.
  • Make creative use of polls, quizzes and games. 
  • Make your presentation human with Bitmoji.
  • Build anticipation with interactive presentation tools like annotations and drag and drop.
  • Try out these 160 fun PowerPoint ideas for your next presentation!

Adding a summary slide to the end of a PowerPoint presentation is a good idea. That way, you can review items with your audience at the end of the presentation. The presenter controls what items make it to the summary slide and can even use each item on the slide to quickly return to the previous slide(s).

How to create a summary slide in PowerPoint

How to hyperlink summary items, how to insert a zoom summary slide in microsoft 365.

If you’re using an older version of PowerPoint (pre-Microsoft 365), you can create a summary slide as follows:

1. Select all of the slides you want to summarize in Slide Sorter view. Click the first slide, then press and hold the Ctrl key as you click the remaining slides ( Figure A ).

PowerPoint displays a red border around the selected slides 1, 3 and 5.

2. Click Summary Slide on the Outlining toolbar.

3. PowerPoint inserts the summary slide before the slides, so be sure to drag it to the end of the presentation.

When you’re done with the presentation, you can click to the summary slide for a brief period of questions and answers, if appropriate.

SEE: Spice up your presentation by adding multiple flashing stars in a PowerPoint slide .

If that’s the end of things, then the simple summary slide is adequate. However, you might want to display the original slides again as you answer questions from the audience. If that’s a possibility, hyperlink the summary items to their respective slides as follows:

1. Select the item on the summary slide.

2. Choose Hyperlink from the Insert menu.

3. Click Place In This Document in the left pane.

4. Identify the slide ( Figure B ).

Select the slide to hyperlink.

5. Click OK.

You don’t have to hyperlink the items on the summary slide, but doing so lets you return to the original slide(s) with a quick click. You’ll probably want to add hyperlinks on each slide for the return trip to the summary slide.

SEE: Here’s how to tone down a busy picture using Merge in Microsoft PowerPoint .

If you’re using Microsoft 365, adding a summary slide is easier. Thanks to the Zoom feature, PowerPoint will generate a summary slide, but how you use it differs a bit from the older summary slide. There are no hyperlinks per se; clicking a thumbnail will zoom in on the original slide.

Let’s create a summary slide that includes the same slides 1, 3 and 5 using the Zoom feature:

1. Click the Insert tab.

2. In the Links group, choose Summary Zoom from the Zoom dropdown ( Figure C ).

Choose Summary Zoom.

3. In the resulting pane, click slides 1, 3 and 5 ( Figure D ). If you select slides before starting this process, they will already be selected.

Click the slides you want in the summary slide.

4. Click Insert.

Figure E shows the resulting summary slide, which includes thumbnails of slides 1, 3 and 5. PowerPoint displays the summary slide at the beginning of the presentation, so remember to drag it to the end.

The summary slide includes three slide thumbnails.

How to use the Zoom summary slide

To use the summary slide, simply click any thumbnail to zoom in on that slide. You’re not actually moving to that slide. What happens with the next click is where sections matter.

In Figure C , you can see two dimmed options. Section Slide is dimmed because the current presentation has no sections. When you apply the Zoom summary slide, PowerPoint automatically divides your slides into sections. How you intend to use the summary slide will determine whether you keep the new sections. The Zoom feature works well with sections, but they’re not required.

SEE: Create a moving arrow in Microsoft PowerPoint to gently guide the presentation from point to point.

If the presentation has sections, the second click will zoom in on the section slide in that section. Each subsequent click will display the next slide in the section until you reach the end of the section. Once you’ve reached that point, a click will return the presentation to the summary slide.

If the presentation doesn’t use sections or the section has only one slide, the first click zooms in on the appropriate slide. The second click returns you to the summary slide.

How to remove a section

There’s no way to stop PowerPoint from adding sections once you implement the Zoom slide feature. Fortunately, removing the sections is easy:

1. Right-click the section item.

2. Choose Remove Section ( Figure F ).

Choose Remove Section.

How to Create a Dynamic Presentation in PowerPoint

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

Creating an effective and dynamic PowerPoint presentation takes time and effort. However, with some key tips and best practices, you can develop memorable and impactful slide decks. This comprehensive guide covers how to format, design, and deliver a polished presentation in PowerPoint.

Format the Presentation Structure

Structure your presentation logically with an introduction, body, and conclusion. Use headings (H2 and H3 in markdown) to separate key sections and talking points within the body.

Limit text on each slide. Include only key phrases, statistics, quotes, or questions – not full sentences. Let your verbal presentation provide further details and explanation.

Use consistent slide formats. Avoid switching between layouts frequently. Use the same template for most information slides with a title and bulleted content.

Add visual interest with relevant photos, charts, diagrams, and illustrations. Ensure all visuals are high-quality with concise labels.

Design Visually Appealing Slides

Choose an appropriate theme. Select one that aligns with your brand or content. Avoid overly bright, distracting, or unreadable color schemes.

Use animations and transitions sparingly. Subtle entrance and exit effects can work well, but avoid excessive or distracting movements.

Align objects to the slide grid for a clean, structured layout. Use guides to evenly space out headlines, text boxes, and other elements.

Make text easy to read. Use fonts between 24-32 pt for headlines and 18-24 pt for body text. Sans serif fonts tend to work best for presentations.

Deliver a Polished Presentation

Practice your presentation several times. Refine the flow, confirm timing, and polish your verbal delivery.

Engage the audience with questions, stories, humor, and pauses. Make eye contact and gauge reactions.

Use slide notes and presenter view for an outline, talking points, and slide previews. Avoid reading full sentences from slides.

Invite participation by asking for feedback, ideas, or reactions. Pause for responses and discussions.

Provide handouts so the audience can review detailed information from your slides after the presentation.

Advanced Tips and Tricks

  • Add interactivity with hyperlinks, click to reveal elements, and embedded media like videos.
  • Include dynamic elements that update automatically like dates, charts linked to data, and rotating images.
  • Animate builds to reveal bullet points, graphics, and other slide components piece by piece.
  • Use PowerPoint’s Design Ideas feature to automatically improve the layouts of certain slides.
  • Add presenter notes to provide more context and details for each slide.
  • Save presentations as videos to share more easily online or enable self-running displays.
  • Use the morph transition between slides containing similar elements to create dynamic movement.
  • Embed fonts used in the presentation to ensure proper text display on any device.

With the right mix of structure, design, delivery, and interactivity, you can develop memorable PowerPoint presentations that effectively communicate your ideas. Pay special attention to formatting consistency, visual appeal, presentation skills, and audience engagement. Take advantage of PowerPoint’s many features to showcase your content in a polished, professional manner.

Excel chart in PowerPoint 365

See How to create a span chart in Excel.

To create a slide in the PowerPoint presentation with automatically updated data, do the following:

   1.   Select a chart or a table in Excel, that you want to add to the presentation and do one of the following:

Excel copy in PowerPoint 365

  • Click Ctrl+C .
  • Right-click on the selected object and then choose Copy in the popup menu.

   2.   Open the presentation slide, where you want to inset the Excel object and then, on the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, choose on the Paste dropdown list:

   2.1.   If you try to paste a chart:

Paste Options in PowerPoint 365

In the Paste Options list, choose:

Use Destination Theme and Link Data in PowerPoint 365

Use Destination Theme will take on the theme colors, fonts, and effects of the destination presentation that you are pasting to. The source colors, fonts, and effects will be changed.

Keep Source formatting will maintain the theme colors, fonts, and effects of the presentation that you are copying from. All colors, fonts, and effects will be the same, as in the source workbook.

Link Data is what you'll use if you want the information in the chart or spreadsheet to be automatically updated when the source data is updated. A Link is created to the original and changes to the source will make the changes in the destination document.

Caution! Because this method creates a link to a specific Excel spreadsheet, if you move or delete the source file, you won't be able to update the chart.

Note: See the description for other buttons below.

Excel table in PowerPoint 365

   2.2.   If you would like to insert a table, click Paste Special... :

Paste special in PowerPoint 365

Note: Any other paste option doesn't create a link to the source file, so, any changes in the Excel table doesn't update the table in PowerPoint.

In the Paste Special dialog box, check the Paste link checkbox and click OK :

Paste special dialog box in PowerPoint 365

Now, then you change anything in the chart or in the table, you will see changes in the PowerPoint presentation:

Dynamic chart in PowerPoint 365

Other options for pasting an Excel chart:

Use Destination Theme and Embed Workbook in PowerPoint for Microsoft 365

Embed Workbook will create a copy of the data and embed it into the destination document. Future changes in the source will not be reflected. You can manually change the chart by double-clicking on it and making changes in the mini-spreadsheet that opens inside the destination document. Changes you make in the destination document also will not affect the source data. Embedding the chart and its source data is useful for sharing documents between viewer's and your own computers. However, it can create very large files.

How to Automate your Presentations with Dynamic Values and Interactive Charts

Elias Dabbas

One of the most important reasons we create presentations is to analyze data, get some insights, and share those findings. In some cases, when we are analyzing the same data numerous times, it helps a lot to automate the process.

It would be great if we can take this week’s data, plug it in somewhere, click a button, and have the same presentation updated with the new values and charts.

Here are some situations in which this might be interesting: 

  • Every morning, in order to start your day, you want to explore the latest bunch of datasets in a customized way that is specific to your needs.
  • You have tens of thousands of subscribers, and for each one you want to send a customized presentation, summarizing their account’s data.
  • On a weekly basis, you want to analyze and share the same data for your weekly meeting/presentation.
  • When you start a new project or work with a new client, you usually start by analyzing a stable dataset, and you have pretty much the same starting analysis.

In this tutorial, we will be working toward building an interactive presentation with dynamic values, analyzing tweets data. You can also plug in a different dataset (with the same format), and update the charts with your data’s values. The presentation will look like this:

We will be using Jupyter Lab (the latest iteration of Jupyter Notebook) as our development environment, and Python as the programming language.

You can get an interactive version of the code in the article here if you would like to follow along with the coding. [ Project’s source code at GitHub ]

If you are not familiar with the Jupyter Notebook environment, it is a browser-based tool that contains code cells. You write code and run each cell. It evaluates the code and displays the result(s) right underneath the code. This is ideal for all kinds of data analysis tasks:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

Let’s now see how programmable presentations are created.

Creating your first programmable presentation

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

Let’s start by seeing how you can create the simplest presentation in a Jupyter notebook.

We first create two code cells that instruct Python to print very simple text:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

We now have two cells that print simple text as you can see above. Now we need to specify that these code cells should become slides in our presentation. We can do this using the property inspector on the right side of the screen. Once we select a cell (which should now be highlighted with a blue strip on the left), we choose the option from the “Slide type” dropdown:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

As you can see, there are several options for slides:

  • Slide : The highlighted cell should be rendered as an independent slide.
  • Sub-slide : This cell should also be rendered as a normal independent slide, but it would belong to the previous slide. This allows readers to navigate down (if they want to see sub-slides), or navigate to the right if they want to skip the sub-slides.
  • Fragment : Cells would be rendered as consecutive elements on the same slide. This is similar to rendering each consecutive bullet point in a presentation. If you don’t want to distract the audience with six points at once, you only show the first, then the second, and so on.
  • Skip : As the name suggests, this says that we don’t want to include this slide in the presentation. This is really useful for having code that is required to create some data, but should not be presented for example. It’s also good for creating notes for you, or any collaborators working with you on the project.
  • Notes : Speaker notes that are visible to you, but not the audience. This requires some additional setup.

Now that we have specified that those two cells should be slides, we can now go on to generate the presentation. We can do this with a command line tool called nbconvert . The command is fairly simple:

$ jupyter nbconvert name_of_file.ipynb --to slides

The --to option allows us to convert to various other formats like html and pdf for example.

Instead of leaving the notebook and running this from the terminal, we can utilize Jupyter’s ability to run command line commands through the code cells. All we have to do is start the cell with the exclamation mark, which causes Jupyter to run this line as a command line command. To do this, we can create a third code cell and simply add the exclamation mark to the beginning:

! jupyter nbconvert name_of_file.ipynb --to slides

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

As you can see, it’s also good to assign the type “Skip” to this code cell, because we don’t want the readers to see this command. We also added the open command so we can immediately open it in a new browser window. This is not required and we can simply double click the file’s icon to open it. I just use this while creating presentations because it’s convenient and allows me to immediately generate and open new presentations and check the progress.

As a result of running the last cell, we get our presentation slides in a browser window:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

Congratulations on programming your first slideshow!

An important thing now is to remove the code cells (the inputs), because we only want the audience to see the outputs, and not how they were generated.

Actually, in many cases, especially if your audience is technical, they might actually want to see the code, in which case you may want to keep them. But generally if it’s a presentation you can share the notebook later if anyone is interested in the code.

Removing the inputs is very easy, and all we have to do is run the same command with the –no-input option:

!jupyter nbconvert 01_input_output_raw.ipynb --to slides --no-input

Running this code and opening the new presentation would look like this:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

Now we have a presentation that was programmed, and with a cleaner interface, and now we know how to generate them easily.

It still doesn’t look that good, and we don’t have dynamic values that would change when our data changes. We will do this now.

Adding HTML and Markdown with dynamic styling to slides

The previous presentation generated plain text, and now we want to use the full richness of HTML in our slides. HTML is what is used to instruct your browser to generate the page you are reading, and we have full access to HTML, in order to render whatever we want in terms of coor, sizes, styling, and so on.

Writing full HTML code is a little tedious however, and might be error prone.

This is why we can also use Markdown, which is a very easy way to write (and read) code that would eventually be rendered as HTML.

For example, if I wanted to list three bullet points with HTML, I’d have to do it like this:

With Markdown:

It’s clear how much easier Markdown is to write and to read as well. I mostly use Markdown, but in some cases, when you want some more customization, it’s good to use full HTML as we will do in the following example.

The main module for creating and rendering rich objects in the Juypter notebook is going to be the display module in the IPython package. “Interactive Python” was (and still is) an alternative Python REPL (read-evaluate-print-loop) that was easier to use than the traditional Python REPL. It is still available, and also evolved into the Jupyter notebook, which we still use under the hood.

We first import it, and start using it right away:

from IPython import display

The display module has various functions and classes, and we start by using the display_markdown function as follows:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

You can see here how easy it was to generate <h1> content. We simply add a # to the beginning of the string that we want to wrap in <h1> tags. Other headings work similarly, ## for <h2>, ### for <h3> and so on. Note that we need to pass raw=True to these functions.

We get the two lines that we wanted to display right underneath the code in the output area.

Let’s now see why we might want to use HTML to write the same text.

We want to give a certain color to the first line, and in the second line we want to only color the word “HTML”. Not only that, the color would be randomly generated from a set of two colors based on a certain probability, so you might see it as blue, or red.

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

After importing the random module, we ask it to generate a random number, which would be a decimal number varying between zero and one.

Then we create the variable color , which takes the value “blue” if rand_number is less than 0.3, and “red” otherwise. This means that we get blue with a 30% probability and red with 70%.

In the first call to display_html we use full HTML code, and we include the style attribute to color that text in green.

In the second call we also use HTML, and we give the style attribute of the span around the string “HTML” the value “color”, which in this case turned out to be red.

There is more detail involved in writing HTML, and it’s not as easy to read, but it’s definitely worth it when you want those customizations.

Our presentation is a little more complicated now, and it’s a very good thing that everything can exist in one document. The text, the charts (more on this later), and more importantly, the code that generated those outputs. Compare this to the traditional process of dancing between some data file, Microsoft PowerPoint, Excel, and within Excel having to do many side calculations, small tables that have no name, and manually integrating everything in a slideshow that not even you can properly remember how things were created. Also, a good practice is to have a folder where this presentation is created. You would also have a sub-folder for data files, and maybe some images, as well as your Jupyter notebooks.

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

This is how the slides look like after rendering them in a browser using the code above:

A very important thing to note is that the Jupyter notebook has two main types of cells. It’s important to note some points about that.

Types of cells in the Jupyter Notebook

There is an easier way of writing Markdown, and that is by changing the type of the cell from code cell to Markdown cell. Once you select a cell, you can change its type using the dropdown menu showing Code, Markdown, and Raw:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

Once you select Markdown, the cell no longer interprets the code as Python code (or any other language), but as Markdown. In this case you don’t need to use the display.display_markdown function, you just start typing Markdown in that cell. Once you run the code it renders it as HTML, and you can’t see the inputs anymore, until you click and start editing again. This is slightly more convenient, but you can’t display dynamic values of variables, and can’t programmatically change the rendered text, at least not yet .

So, my recommendation is that if you don’t have dynamic values, and it’s a one-off presentation, you can use the different types of cells, but if you want the full programmatic presentation, the display_<object_type> functions are your best friends.

Let’s now see how this might be taken a step further with more customization, and a potential real-life use case.

Generating dynamic HTML values for a sales report

Assume we have a target, together with sales figures for our sales department:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

We want to loop through the names and figures, and generate a phrase with dynamic values. The name of the sales representative, the amount they generated, a word that takes the value of “exceeded” or “missed” depending on the difference between their sales figure and the target.

We want to dynamically color the phrase based on hitting/missing the target, and also hyperlink each phrase to the respective sales representative’s page.

Let’s first generate the plain text dynamic phrases:


how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

We now have the dynamic text generated, taking on dynamic values for each sales representative. Let’s now use HTML, to dynamically color the lines based on hit/miss and to generate (fake) hyperlinks for each one {salesrep_name} :

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

The two additions to the code were simply the color variable, which depends on whether or not the difference between the revenue and target is less than zero, as well as the dynamically generated URL. The text is displayed with the display_html function to give us the full power of HTML.

So far, we have created slides and presentations that take on dynamic values based on the data, we now see how we can have interactive slides, allowing users to explore the data on their own.

We first show a very simple example, and then go on to generate interactive tools for a real-life dataset.

Creating interactive slides and presentations

With static presentations, readers typically consume them in a passive way. They simply read what we wrote. But presentations can be much more engaging, containing massively more information, and allow for discovery and unexpected results.

The next presentation will have a single slide that is interactive. It doesn’t do much, but it shows the concept in its simplest form:

Of course the other major value of having interactive presentations is with recurring presentations using the same data with different values every day, week, or month.

I’m using Dash for creating the interactivity in this mini app. Dash is one of several options for creating interactive apps, and a discussion of how it works is beyond the scope of this article, but I’ll give an overview of the code that was used. First the packages and imports:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

Plotly is the data visualization package. It is also the name of the company that produces Dash. Plotly Express is another package they have for high-level intuitive visualization.

JupyterDash is basically Dash but tailored for work within a Jupyter environment.

From Dash itself we import several modules and functions:

  • Input: The interactive component, a dropdown in this case, will serve as an input to our app. It’s value will depend on the selected day. This value will determine what will happen underneath it, in the output area.
  • Output: Once we take the value of the Input, we now know what to do with it. In this case we have a simple template “My favorite day is {day}”. The value of the input is inserted here to produce the output.
  • dcc: Dash Core Components is the module that contains the interactive components. In this case we used one of them, which is the Dropdown component.
  • html: This is the module that contains all the HTML tags, and allows us to generate them using Python only. We use it to format the Output part of the app.

The following code creates the interactive favorite day app that we just saw:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

We first created the app variable, which we did using JupyterDash.

Then we created the variable days , which is a list of the seven days of the week.

We also created the layout attribute of the app, which consists of an HTML div, which in turn contains two elements:

  • dcc.Dropdown : The dropdown component containing the seven days as options, and having the ID of “dropdown”, with a default value of “Tuesday.”
  • html.Div : This is a simple container that has no content, and has the ID “ddown_selection”. The value and format of what ends up showing in the div is determined by the Input, and is created using the callback function in the lower part of the code.

The callback function is where interactivity happens. It takes the Output and Input, and based on the decorated function does something with the Input to produce the Output.

The final line invokes the run_server method to start the app.

I know this description is not complete if you don’t know how Dash works, but that would require a separate discussion. I wrote a book on Dash if you are interested in learning more.

We covered how dynamic content can be generated and formatted, we saw some examples, and we also saw how slides can be made interactive. Let’s now see how you might actually create and use an interactive presentation with real data.

Creating interactive presentations with real data

We now come to the practical use of our topic. We want to end up actually using such presentations in our day to day life.

We will go through the process of creating the presentation that we saw at the beginning, with a very brief description of the code used.

We start with the required imports:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

Once we have imported the required packages and functions, we create the main variables, tweets and topic .

These are the only non-automated objects that we create manually.

  • tweets : A simple string showing the location of the data file. In this case it is under our data/ folder and it is called “bitcoin_tweets.csv”.
  • topic : The topic of the tweets that we are analyzing. Those tweets were obtained from the Twitter API , by searching for tweets containing the word “bitcoin”.

Source code showing how to read CSV file containing Bitcoin Tweets

We then use the display_markdown function to say that this is an overview of the dataset. After that we run tweets.head() which displays the first five rows of the dataset.

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

Once those values are manually entered, we can now run the whole code and explore the presentation.

Let’s now see how the first summary slide is created:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

Creating a summary of the dataset

Before diving deep into charts and trends, you probably want to get some metadata about the dataset. As you can see, we have the topic, the date range, the number of tweets, users, and tweets per user.

This gives us a quick indication about some general attributes of our dataset.

Let’s quickly take a look at the code that generated it:

Source code showing how to create the variables for Dataset in Python

  • tweet_count : We get this by asking for the “shape” of the DataFrame that we are using, which gives us the number of rows and columns, from which we extract the first element (the rows)
  • user_count : We take the user_screen_name column and get the number of unique values in it using the nunique method.
  • tweets_per_user : This is a simple division of tweets ÷ users
  • start_date and end_date : From the tweet_created_at column we take the minimum and maximum values, which give us an idea on the date range in which those tweets were published. We then have to convert them to Python datetime objects by parsing them.

Now that we have created the variables, we can easily use the display_markdown function to create text that dynamically inserts those variables where they belong and give us an overview of our dataset:

Source code showing how to use the markdown function to create text that dynamically inserts variables into the slide.

Creating an interactive chart

The next slide shows a dropdown menu, and under it a chart that is generated based on the user’s selection. We give the user three options to choose from: most followed accounts, most retweeted tweets, and most liked tweets. The charts are similar to one another, they display a horizontal bar chart of the top fifteen items based on the selection.

The layout attribute of this app is the same as the one we previously discussed. It has a dropdown menu as well as an empty HTML div underneath it.

Then we have a callback function that generates a chart based on the selection. What it does is it takes the relevant columns and sorts them based on the requested value (number of followers, number of retweets, and number of likes). Some notes on what it does based on each of the selections:

  • Most followed accounts: This is straightforward. It simply takes the columns “user_screen_name”, and “user_followers_count”, removes duplicates in screen names, and sorts based on the number of followers. It then displays the top fifteen.
  • Most retweeted/liked tweets: These are also straightforward, using a similar logic to the most followed option. There is one difference though. Since we are dealing with tweets, which are long strings of text, it is difficult to display the full tweet text on the Y axis. So after filtering and sorting, we take the first forty characters of each tweet and display them on the Y axis. We then set the hover text to the full tweet. If the user is interested in reading the most retweeted tweet, they can simply mouse over it and do so.

Now that we saw who the most followed users are, and the most popular tweets, we move to see what specific topics were discussed. We do this by counting words in two ways.

Word counting: absolute and weighted frequency

When we count the most used words we get an idea about the topics that were discussed. This view is important to know what content was produced in that time period. But what about what content was most likely consumed?

If one person tweets “bitcoin is going up”, and another tweets, “bitcoin is going down”, we can say that the split between bullish and bearish tweeters is 50:50. But what if you knew that the bullish user had a thousand followers, while the bearish user had three million? The split is now 1,000:3,000,000.

Things are typically split that way on social media. Actually, in our dataset, as you can see below, we have an average number of followers of 5.3k, a minimum of zero, and maximum of 1.37M. The average is of course misleading because of the few extreme values that we have. Looking at the quartiles, we see that 25% of users have less than 36 followers, 50% of users are below 200, and 75% of users have at most 1,186 followers. One tweet from that top account could sway the whole discussion, and would have a much bigger impact than many others combined. Here are some summary statistics about the followers’ counts:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

In order to get a perspective on the word counts, we user the word_frequency function from advertools to get this overview, and then visualize the data:

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

The words and hashtags “bitcoin” and “crypto” are in the top three on both charts. This is normal because by definition, we requested tweets about bitcoin. What is interesting is that dogecoin is the top keyword after bitcoin on a weighted basis, even though it appeared only 139 times. But on a weighted basis (the total number of followers of people tweeting anything containing “#dogecoin” is 2.86 million). That might give us a hint as to where to look for further analysis, and see why this topic is used by some of the most influential users in this dataset. We keep in mind that those tweets were tweeted in a 43 minute period, and the topic is extremely popular, so make your conclusions carefully.

This was a quick overview of how you can automate your presentations and scale the process and make it more efficient. There are many other options to explore like different types of charts, or adding various data sources. The most important skill is understanding your data, and being able to manipulate and visualize it the way you want. Grouping the slides together is straightforward in comparison. You can also add some machine learning techniques for getting other perspectives on your data.

How to make a dynamic presentation in PowerPoint?

BluCactus - dynamic presentation

How to make a dynamic presentation in PowerPoint? PowerPoint presentations offer us many advantages. Everything smiles if it is a dynamic presentation. In them, you can add your branding and all the details of your corporate identity. Thus, you will be able to show your logo, the colours of your brand, and other elements that you want the audience to know about your company.

At first, it can be complicated because of all the animated options available. And if you don’t know how to do it, you can enlist the help of the PPT presentation creation experts. In this post, we will provide you with a lot of information about dynamic presentations. All to understand their importance within your marketing strategy.

What are dynamic PowerPoint presentations?

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

Now, we can create a dynamic PowerPoint presentation for our company.

What for? To make informative screens with updated content coming from various data sources. Dynamic presentations are very different from static presentations. And when used correctly, it will be easier for the interlocutor to receive or understand the message you want to convey.

What is the importance of animations in slides?

BluCactus - dynamic presentation

It is essential to make use of animations for PowerPoint when:

You want to make adjustments to the dynamic style

The animations must be related to the style of your presentation. So, take a good look at each element or transition you plan to choose.

Must include animated vignettes

Use them only when it is necessary to accompany the information shown on the slides. Similarly, remember that these are vignettes to provide information little by little. Through elements like this, you can grab your audience’s attention and keep them focused on a specific topic at a time.

Need an interactive PowerPoint file

Turn to animation if you want to deliver your presentation as a file with which your audience can interact. Simply export your PPT in an interactive presentation format to share via DropBox, email, or online.

You are probably new to the concept of dynamic presentation and are used to making presentations static. The good news is that making a dynamic presentation doesn’t require starting from scratch. You can transform a static presentation into a dynamic one, and here are the best tricks to do it:

Animated Graphics

Although there are many programs you can use to create dynamic presentations, you can do an excellent job in PowerPoint. To get started, if you plan to display data about your company, you can take advantage of animated data charts. Animated graphics are beneficial. Since in addition to providing dynamism, you can expose data by data without the audience being distracted when reading the data that will later be mentioned.

Besides these graphics, you can also add audio or video from Vimeo or YouTube to dynamic PowerPoint presentations. This type of content can be played automatically once the slide is reached. All without having to redirect us to the corresponding web page.

Slide Pattern

In a professional PowerPoint presentation, it is essential to respect the pattern of the slides. By this, we mean that you should add videos, placeholders, and all the necessary elements to make your presentation dynamic.

Creativity and Originality

Without these features, a dynamic presentation will be meaningless. Creativity has become a plus in creating a good marketing strategy for our company. Therefore, much must be done if a strategy like this is used.

There are many ideas to put our creativity into practice. For example, we can create a colour palette directly in PowerPoint to make our slides stand out. However, we must make a good selection of colours so that later they don´t collide with the company’s corporate colours.

Related Images

This element is also critical. Imagine that your exhibition is about a clothing brand, and your images are related to cleaning products. One thing has nothing to do with the other, right?

Indeed, the images you will use in the PowerPoint dynamic slides must be related to the topic you will expose. It can be directly or through metaphors. The important thing is that we use images as resources to connect with the public and transmit the message with more power.

Public Participation

You must allow audience participation to make your PowerPoint presentation as dynamic as possible. It is an excellent formula to keep their attention. To achieve this, you can ask some direct questions to the public. Or also, you can opt for several rounds of questions so that those who wish have the opportunity to clarify certain doubts. You can add a QR code if you want to make your dynamic presentation even more eye-catching. In this way, the audience can download it through their smart devices.

How to apply animations in a dynamic PowerPoint presentation?

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

Let’s see how you can apply animations in a dynamic presentation in PowerPoint with the help of a template:

Introduction Slides

For the introduction slide, you can find a variety of markers for the position of the texts. To do this, the first thing you need to do is add your own text. You can do this by highlighting another existing block of text to write over it.

If it’s a premium presentation template, you’ll be able to customize the fonts. Now when you have the text highlighted, you can find the fonts section that appears on the home tab. You can also use other effects such as bold or italic or change the font size.

When creating an animated PowerPoint presentation, you’ll probably want to check out all the available animation options. In the animation tab, you can find many elements. But it would help if you also remembered that since they are pre-animated templates, you don’t have to add animations from scratch. Generally, this advantage is not available in free PowerPoint dynamic slides.

As for the pre-made animations, you can find them by clicking on the “animations” button. This will open a sidebar where you can see a list of available effects. Before selecting an effect, you can click on the “preview” option. This way, you will find the most suitable for the animated presentation you need for your company.

Infographic Slides

Infographics should be part of any dynamic PPT presentation. Especially if you want it to be successful. This is because infographics allow you to express ideas or data more precisely. Through them, you can add individual ideas and explain each of them in order.

These types of slides are also pre-animated. Although it is worth clarifying that you do not need to use the animations as they have been included. The idea is that you can take creative control of your presentation. Indeed, in the animations tab, you can see the list of available animations. Also, you will find sections of groups that are the individual cores.

You can add the illustrations and cores one by one. This way, you can set the speed and rhythm of the exposure.

Image Slides

how to create dynamic powerpoint presentations

To use this template, you must go to the animations tab. Then click on the photo animation and then choose the effect to use. For example, there is a very simple effect known as “float in,” and it is one of the most used animations. You can use it or select an effect that provides more style.

On the left tab of the animations tab, you can also click on the dropdown menu just below the list of effects. Right in this place, you will find a menu with many striking options. Likewise, to explore each of the effects, you can click on the thumbnail of each one to apply it. The exciting thing is that this is a function with preview. And thanks to this, you can select the ideal option for your presentation.

What are the most creative and dynamic PowerPoint templates?

The goal of animated presentations is to convey all of your ideas to the audience . Whether it is a small or a large conference, you always have to strive for quality slides.

You can find many dynamic PPT presentation ideas on the web, filled with various creative options. So, you can take advantage of multiple features for creating content that makes a big impact. Here are some of the template options you can use to create successful presentations:

Animated Corporate PowerPoint Template

These types of templates are perfect for businesses. Therefore, you should consider this idea for your next presentation. In these templates, you can do flat animation creation. Also, you can use infographic videos without adding additional applications.

Simple Animated PowerPoint Template

There are simple but great dynamic PowerPoint templates to create an excellent presentation. Most of them include animations to give a view of their content without many complications.

Animated template with professional benefits

These types of templates offer a large number of options to make great design compositions. You can also find handmade infographics and other elements that you can use that different beat templates you can get on the web for free or paid.

Genially in a nutshell

How do I make a presentation interactive and how does Genially work? Find the answers to all of your slide-related questions here!

What’s an interactive presentation?

Interactive slides contain clickable hotspots, links, buttons, and animations that are activated at the touch of a button. Instead of reading or watching passively, your audience can actively interact with the content.  

Genially’s interaction presentation software allows you to combine text, photos, video clips, audio and other content in one deck. It’s a great way to condense more information into fewer slides. 

If you’re a teacher, you can share multiple materials in one single learning resource. Students can create their own projects using digital media and online maps. For business or training, try embedding spreadsheet data, PDFs, and online content directly in your slides. 

An interactive slide deck is more user-friendly than a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation or Google Slides document. That’s because you can break information down into chunks with pop-ups, labels, voiceovers and annotated infographics.  

The other benefit of interactive content is increased engagement. It’s easier to keep your audience’s attention when they’re actively participating. Try Genially’s presentation software and free slideshow maker to see how it’s better than other presentation websites. You won’t go back to standard presentation apps!

How do you make a clickable slide?

The best way to make slides clickable is to use Genially’s free interactive presentation program. Design your slide then apply an interaction. In a couple of clicks, you can add popup windows, hyperlinks, close-up images, games, animations, multimedia and other content. 

Choose from the library of hotspot buttons and icons to show people what to click on. Go to Presenter View to get a preview and see how your content will appear to your audience.

How do I create presentations that look professional?

You’ve got a deadline looming and you’re staring at the screen with a blank presentation. We’ve all been there! Starting a presentation design from scratch is tricky, especially if you’re short on time. 

Genially’s free online presentation maker has over 2000 ready-to-use templates for professional slide presentations, photos slideshows, and more. Each slide design has been created by our team of top graphic designers. No need to worry about fonts, centering images, or designing a matching color scheme. It’s all done for you. 

Start by browsing our layouts and themes for education, business and then customize with your own text and images.

How do I share or download my slides?

Because Genially is a cloud based presentation software, you can simply share the link to your slides. Like other online presentation tools, there are no files to download or store on your computer. Everything is saved online.  

When you publish your slide deck, it gets its own unique url, just like a website. Share the link with others to let them explore the content in their own time. If you’re presenting live, just click the Present button. 

You can also embed your presentation on your website, company wiki, or social media. Genially is compatible with WordPress, Moodle, Google Classroom, and other platforms. If you use an LMS, you can also download your interactive design slides in SCORM format.

For slideshow videos and slideshows with music, share online or download as an MP4 video. Check out our free slideshow templates for ideas.

Can I make a free presentation in Genially?

You bet! Genially is an easy-to-use slide maker, with a free version and paid plans. The free plan allows you to create unlimited slides with interactions and animations. Subscribe to one of our paid plans for more advanced features.
