Getting Started with Engage

 

Welcome to Getting Started with Engage

In this video I'll be showing you how to create better PowerPoint presentations in less time with the Engage PowerPoint add-in.

Whether its a business case, marketing plan or financial presentation, PowerPoint presentations are an integral part of how information is shared and how decisions are made in organizations of all types.

These presentations do more than just inform and persuade, they commit people to action. This is why we created Engage. To help you create presentations that will have a direct impact on whatever it is you are trying to achieve.

In this video I'll begin by showing you the Flow feature which lets you create your own presentation path using motion and zoom. I'll go over using one of our presentation templates from the presentation and slide library and how to make it your own. I'll also show you how to convey your ideas visually with SmartObject and design elements. I'll go over different ways to visualize your data with infographics like Treemaps, Heatmaps and Pictograms. And finally, I'll show you how to automate your PowerPoint presentations via any Microsoft Excel spreadsheet or Microsoft project file.
