PowerPoint is one of the better-known Microsoft Office applications, primarily for putting together slideshow presentations. However, there are other ways you can use it that might not seem immediately noticeable. This week’s tip is dedicated to how you can use PowerPoint for other purposes besides slideshow presentations.
Microsoft PowerPoint has plenty of built-in graphics, so it can be used as a very basic kind of design software. It can be used to create something with visual context, like infographics. You can use a simple PowerPoint file to create any infographics needed for your business. You can even print them out or store them as PDFs if needed.
Employee training can be a bit dull, as well as time-consuming. Sometimes it can be as simple as going past several notes displayed on a screen. This sounds like a PowerPoint, doesn’t it? Thankfully, PowerPoint has other built-in features that you can use to make your training more informative and engaging, including quiz making with visuals.
The onboarding process can be a tiresome prospect; after all, you hired your new workers for their skills, and it’s reasonable that you want to get them involved as soon as possible. You can expedite these trainings by using PowerPoint, while also making them more engaging and impactful.
A PowerPoint presentation can be used on a display to scroll through news as needed. This is particularly great for important reminders and meetings. It can be used to inform employees of when a client will be in the office, upcoming events or webinars, and so much more. Think about it like it’s in a similar vein to digital signage.
