Live Event: Link Up With PowerPoint! Enhance Your Presentations with Hyperlink Tricks
When: Tues, March 4, 2008 • 3 pm ET / 12 pm PT • 60 minute audio/video event


Most PowerPoint power users know how to use hyperlinks to move from slide to slide, but hyperlinks can do SO much more to enrich your presentation — if you know how to put them to work for you. Learn the secrets behind using hyperlinks to do everything from seamlessly accessing another presentation to creating a ready-to-send email. All from within a single slideshow!

Join PowerPoint guru and Microsoft MVP Kathy Jacobs for this inspiring webinar and audioconference where you'll learn to take your slideshows to the next level by incorporating hyperlinks in innovative ways.

Learning Objectives
  • The superlative way to create basic hyperlinks within your presentation — how to do it, how to test them, and why the process seems "backwards."
  • How to prevent the linked text from changing when you create a hyperlink so your presentation stays the way you want it.
  • The trick to creating a link to a specific slide in an external presentation so you see just the information you choose.
  • How to create a link to a non-PowerPoint file and avoid common problems you may encounter when doing so.
  • Secrets to creating links to web pages so you don't run into surprise errors or misdirection.
  • Little-known tricks for creating and testing email links that allow you to generate a fully formed email with all your information intact.
  • And more!

You'll learn the techniques the pros use to create "magical" effects by using hyperlinks to seamlessly incorporate slides, documents and locations into your very next presentation.
