  1. 1

    Insert a title and content slide at the end of the presentation. Click the "Home" tab, then click "New Slide" and then click "Title and Content."

  2. 2

    Click the "Click to add title" text box at the top of the slide, then type "Appendix."

  3. 3

    Click on "Click to add text" and enter the information for the appendix.

  4. 4

    Highlight the appendix data you just entered by left-clicking the top left of the data, then drag the cursor to the bottom right.

  5. 5

    Click "Insert," then click "Hyperlink."

  6. 6

    Click the "Place in This Document" button on the left-hand side.

  7. 7

    Click the slide you want to link to the Appendix. For example, if you have a series of tables related to the material in slide 2, click "Slide 2."

  8. 8

    Click "OK" to insert the hyperlink into the appendix.

  9. 9

    Navigate to the slide to which you just hyperlinked. To navigate to the relevant slide, click on it in the left-hand column in edit mode.

  10. 10

    Add a hyperlink to the appendix from that slide. Highlight the information on the slide, click "Insert," then click "Hyperlink." Click "Place in this slide," then click "Appendix." This inserts a link back to the appendix so you can switch between the appendix and the relevant slide.

Tips and warnings

  • The hyperlinks will not work in edit mode. To test the links, click "Slide Show," then click "From Beginning." Press "Ctrl," then click on a hyperlink to use it.
