Product/Version: PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

OS: Mac OS X

While you can open and save files from any file location you access on your computer or network, you can also add more places from where you can open and save files. You see options to add a place, also known as Online Locations in both the Open and Save As dialog boxes as can be seen highlighted in red within Figures 1 and 2, below.

By default, your OneDrive location is already available as a place, only if you have signed in. But you can add more places too, as we shall explore in this tutorial.

Follow these steps to learn how you can add a place in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac:

  1. First, access the File menu, and choose the Open option to bring up the dialog box you saw in Figure 1. Click the Add a Place option, highlighted in red in Figure 1. This will bring up the Add a Place dialog that you can see in Figure 3, below.

  3. You can choose to add a OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, or Office 365 SharePoint location as a place. The former OneDrive option is suitable for those who want to add another Microsoft Account, whereas the latter two options are for those who have business subscriptions to an Office 365 account. Let's choose the OneDrive option, and we will summon the Add a Service dialog box that you can see in Figure 4, below. Enter your email address, followed by your password in the subsequent screen, and proceed. You can similarly add Office 365 SharePoint and OneDrive for Business locations.

  5. We added more accounts, and ended up with a few more Places in the Open and Save tabs of Backstage view. You can see these Places in the Open tab, as shown in Figure 5, below (compare with Figure 1).
