How to use the PowerPoint Add-in with macOS


Which functions does the PowerPoint Add-in include for macOS?

  • Company-wide Slide Library
  • Automatic notifications about slide updates
  • Uncomplicated insertion of approved company images using image placeholders

Master templates for presentations

When starting PowerPoint, the Add-in empower® automatically opens the latest company master template. However, if you need a different template, simply click on "new" and select another one.

Slide Library

Google-like search function

You can use the Google-like search to find the content you want. Just enter your search term and empower® will perform a full-text search. empower® searches the entire content of each element (including slides, images, tables, etc.). All search results are sorted by relevance so you always see the best search result at the top.

Offline availability

empower® synchronizes either the entire library or selected folders on your computer or laptop, allowing you to access the content offline. For example, if you want to upload multiple slides to the library, you do not need to upload the slides only when you’re online. You can save them directly in PowerPoint in the empower® Slide Library and empower® will synchronize them for you the next time you go online.

Automatic update notification

Imagine you create a presentation with empower® and use several slides from the library that represent your company. A few months later you need a similar presentation. You decide to reuse your previously created presentation to save time. But how do you know if the company slides you use from the empower® Library are still up-to-date? Instead of having to check each slide manually, empower® automatically notifies you when updates are available when you open the old presentation. You can then choose whether you want to accept these changes or not.
