Do you want to make your presentations more dynamic and link slides in PowerPoint? Then take a look at our tutorial. In this article you will learn different ways to insert links in PowerPoint. We will show you not only how to create and insert links in PowerPoint, but also what options you have for designing your presentation, for example with menu buttons.
Typically, you structure and progress your presentation in a linear order. That means you start with slide 1, then slide 2, then slide 3, and so on. But what if you want to switch to a slide that comes later in the sequence? Then you have to search for that slide, interrupting your flow and wasting your audience’s time.
It is often advantageous to be able to switch spontaneously between certain slides. For example, if you want to give more detailed information about an overview that can be found on a different slide. You can avoid a distracting, unnecessary slide search with a well-linked PowerPoint presentation. This does not mean that you place unattractive links on every slide, but that these links / cross-links are placed invisibly or as menu icons.
This probably sounds more complicated than it is. It is actually a matter of a few clicks. You can learn how to do it in the following tutorial: How to insert links in PowerPoint.
Hyperlinks in PowerPoint are of course not only internal. Adding a link to a slide can also have an external destination, such as to a specific website or external file.
This type of link does not fall under the scope of an interactive PowerPoint presentation, but is useful additional knowledge in this context.
PowerPoint charts that automatically update from a dynamic Excel backend are very powerful.
