Hello,

I have created a powerpoint presentation with an action button to "click here to open a report".

When I export the ppt to MP4 the button no longer works and am wondering if there is a way to bring the functionality with it once it is exported as a movie file.

Any ideas are welcome!


System Configuration: Windows / Chrome 93.0.4577.82

Hi,

If you export your presentation in the MP4 format or in any other video file, buttons and other call-to-action objects will not be longer operational. Videos cannot include clickable elements.

You must export it in the PowerPoint format (pptx) to make your button work.
