The Microsoft PowerPoint software, part of the company's Office suite of products, provides a way to compile ideas and images into an electronic slideshow format, but the digital slides on the screen are an ideal home for just about anything. Browse through PowerPoint's built-in templates to add items such as a calendar to a PowerPoint presentation, directly onto the slides themselves. Show a group of employees their sales calls for the month, list family birthdays and special occasions at a group event or keep track of holidays and upcoming events, without having to leave the presentation screen.
