Lync: PowerPoint Presentation
Mac Users: It is not possible to broadcast a PowerPoint presentation from Lync for Mac. However, Macs are able to receive presentations sent from PC users.
As well as being able to broadcast the entire desktop, or a single program, Microsoft Lync allows you to broadcast a single PowerPoint presentation to the attendees of an Instant Message or Meeting.
- From within the conversation window, click on the Presentation icon and select PowerPoint from the options.
- Locate the PowerPoint presentation on your computer, and click Open.
- The presentation will load inside the conversation window. As with a regular PowerPoint display, clicking inside presentation will advance the slides.
Due to broadcasting the presentation over a network, complicated animations may not render correctly to the attendees of the meeting.
To display the PowerPoint presentation in full screen on your computer, click on the Full Screen icon at the top of the conversation window (next to the "Maximize" and "Minimize" icons).
