Share your PowerPoint 2016 presentation with others

Share your presentation via OneDrive or SharePoint

  1. Create a draft of the presentation. When you're ready to share it with others, select Share in the top-right corner of the ribbon.

  3. Once your presentation is saved to a shared location, you can then invite others to work on it as well. In the text field under Invite people, enter the email address of the person you'd like to share to. If you already have the person's contact info stored, you can just enter their name.
