Feedback Tab of Backstage View in PowerPoint 365 for Windows

Send feedback to Microsoft about your experience of working within PowerPoint 365 for Windows. You can send likes, dislikes, and suggestions.

Are you super-delighted about a PowerPoint feature? Or are you so irritated that you are pulling your hair? Depending upon how you are feeling, you might want to reach out to the folks who create PowerPoint to tell them how you feel. And this is not difficult to do at all. You can accomplish this task right within PowerPoint, within the Feedback tab of Backstage view.

Follow these steps to access the Feedback tab and use options available in PowerPoint 365 for Windows:

  1. If you have launched PowerPoint, choose Feedback, as shown highlighted in green within Figure 1, below. Alternatively, if you already have a presentation open, choose the File menu to bring up the Backstage view, and select Feedback.
