PowerPoint: Add-ins

Add-ins are apps that a person can place in a PowerPoint presentation, which can be used for live information, in some cases. These Add-ins need to be downloaded and approved before use, and can be found in the Insert tab, under the Add-Ins group. Click the ‘See All…’ to find the online add-ins.

For now, the Stock Tile will be used. Once the choice is clicked, it will populate in the slide. It can be manipulated like a picture (ie: resized, moved, etc.), and is a live feed, in this case. Once the stock is typed, click the arrow and the information will populate. To update the Add-in, click inside the app, then click the dropdown arrow (in this case, located in the upper right hand corner) and select Reload. The information will update.
