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.

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.
