Overview

The Conferences i/o Windows PowerPoint Add-In adds a "Conferences i/o" ribbon to PowerPoint 2013 and PowerPoint 2016. This ribbon allows you to insert special "Live Content" slides into your presentation. When running the presentation as a slideshow, the Add-In will use these special slides to show Live Content from your Conferences i/o session, like a poll or the current list of Social Q&A questions.


This Add-In cannot currently be used to create new polls within PowerPoint. To create a new poll, you must create a poll in your Conferences i/o session, then use that poll's unique "Slide Code" to embed into your presentation.


Downloading the Add-In

Before downloading, you may want to review system requirements. To see what's new or fixed, visit the release notes page.
Note: Make sure PowerPoint is closed before installing the Add-In.




Important note (posted September 16, 2019)


Our Support Team has been tracking a possible bug with Version 2.014 which affects keyboard navigation when on live content (polling slides) in a slideshow. Based on these reports, we don't recommend updating to version 2.014 at this time.


Instead, use an older version like 2.011 available on this page: https://help.conferences.io/support/solutions/articles/5000774954-download-an-old-version-of-the-windows-powerpoint-add-in

Installing the Add-In

After downloading, we strongly recommend extracting the installer file from the downloaded ZIP before you run the installer. On some operating systems, failing to extract the ZIP  may cause the installer to partially fail (though you will not see an error message). See a helpful 90-second video tutorial on installing. For troubleshooting help with installation of the add-in, click here.


You must also close PowerPoint (if it's open) before running the installer.



Verifying installation success

If the installation process was successful, you will see a new “Conferences i/o” tab in PowerPoint’s menu ribbon. If you don't see the new menu choice, try closing all open windows of PowerPoint and then re-open PowerPoint.

From time to time, Conferences i/o will release new versions of our Add-In. When a new version is available, you will see an "Update Available" icon in the Conferences i/o ribbon. This will button will direct you to the latest Add-In downloads.
