Engage Features

Create amazing presentations without even really trying.

Using presentation templates can save a significant amount of time and reduce the risk of errors.

Engage comes with a series of built-in templates which can be modified before the software is deployed to include your logo on all the slides in the library.

Users can also edit any element in the template slides.

Find the perfect slide to add to your presentation.

The slide library gives users the ability to quickly find and add pre-designed slides into their presentations.

The slide library is organized into 20 categories and represents the majority of all types of slides.

Similar to the presentation library, slides in the slide library can also be customized before the software is deployed to incorporate your brand.

Spend less time finding the right image.

Images are an important part of creating a visually impressive presentation.

Engage uses Microsoft's powerful Bing image search engine to find the exact image you're looking for.

You can search by color, image type (i.e. vector image), image content or popular quotes related to your search terms.

Once you have found the right image simply click on it to import it into your presentation.

Add motion and zoom to any presentation.

Turn any presentation into an attention grabbing presentation by adding motion and zoom right in PowerPoint.

Start by selecting a canvas slide. This is the slide that serves as the base for your presentation. You will be able to zoom into any shape on this slide and reveal your other slides.

Once you have selected your canvas slide you can then add steps to your presentation path. These are the shapes you want to zoom in on.

For each step you can add slides you want to show.

Now you are one click away from keeping your audiences attention.
