NOTE: The Powerpoint add-in is currently experiencing issues on standalone version of PowerPoint (e.g. PowerPoint 2016 MSO). We are waiting for Microsoft to resolve these issues. The add-in can still be used in subscription versions of PowerPoint (e.g. Office 365).
Use Wooclap's PowerPoint add-in to insert real-time interactions into your PPT file, no uploading required!
Please note that this add-in is only available for PowerPoint 2013+, PowerPoint 2016+, PowerPoint 2016 for Mac and PowerPoint Online. If you use a different version of PowerPoint, you can always insert your questions by uploading your presentation on Wooclap.
Installing the add-in
Open your PowerPoint presentation and click on Insert > Add-Ins > Store.
Search for "Wooclap" and click on Add.
Using the add-in
Go to the Insert tab, click on the blue My add-ins button, and select the Wooclap add-in. Click start and log into your Wooclap account using your email address and password.
At present, you can't yet access the add-in using another login method. If you registered on Wooclap using another method, please contact us at email@example.com.
Use the first drop-down list to select the Wooclap event from which you want to retrieve a question, and the second list to determine the question that should be displayed on this slide. Confirm by clicking on Insert Question.
Once you have inserted all of your questions, start your presentation as usual. Once you reach a question, click the "play" button at the centre of the screen to open the vote. The audience will then be able to send in their answers, which will be displayed in your presentation in real-time.
We do not recommend inserting questions from different events to the same PowerPoint file (or participants will have to connect to another link during the presentation, and it may lead to confusion);
We do not recommend inserting the same question into the same PowerPoint file more than once (or the second time you display the question, it will already contain answers and participants won't be able to answer the question a second time);
The Message wall is not available through the PowerPoint add-in, but you could ask an open question to which the audience can respond in full sentences;
You can't publish a Participant pace questionnaire from the PowerPoint add-in. You must log into your account and publish it from there.
