How to Start a Skype for Business Meeting from PowerPoint
If you're collaborating with a remote coworker on a PowerPoint presentation and want to edit it together, there is an easy way to do so.
Instead of going to Outlook, sending a meeting request, waiting until they’ve received it and clicked through, you can simply navigate within PowerPoint to launch a Skype for Business meeting where your PowerPoint is center stage.
Step 1: Open the PowerPoint file you wish to share, navigate to the ribbon, and click "Slide Show".
Step 2: Click the "Present Online" option from the ribbon menu, and then click "Skype for Business."
Step 3: After you click on "Skype for Business," another dialogue box will pop up (see below). From here, you can start a new Skype Meeting, or you can share with one currently in session. Then click OK.
There you have it. You can now use PowerPoint to initiate a Skype for Business meeting, which will make team collaboration a breeze. You will also notice that those collaborating have the opportunity to edit, draw, and highlight directly on the PowerPoint.
