Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

Hi there

 

MS Stream is activated in the license but I don't see it when I go for File, export.

 

Any hint?

 

Thanks and best

Udo

I'm not seeing it either in Office Insiders 1711 version, so it's not just you! 

 

This is how it should work by the way for anyone else looking out for it:

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

I'm on Version 1705 (Build 8201.2200)

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

I don't have this option in PowerPoint either

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

You'll need to be on 1710 onwards to have any chance of seeing this feature, as it's listed as a new feature in that version.

 

1705 is the Deferred channel and even in the next feature update in January I don't think will have this option as it's based on version 1708.  You might need to switch to the Monthly Channel to get access earlier rather than later.

 

It seems this feature is still being rolled out anyway, as @Juan Carlos González Martín has confirmed it doesn't seem to be available right now.

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

On my laptop I'm on 1710 monthly and don't see it also. I checked the license once more, because the device itself is connected to another Azure AD organisation as the O365 Pro Plus is coming from.

 

So I'll stay tuned :-)

 

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

I also do not have the option to export to Stream.  I've gone to the "File"--> "Export" option and Stream is not an option.  I've gone to the "Recording" tab but there is no option for uploading to Stream.  I tried to re-install Powerpoint using my Office 365 apps (where Stream is included) but nothing changed.

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

Same here, I'm on 1801 Insider and there is no sign of it. Wonder when it will appear? I think we just have to be patient at this point.

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

I am on version 1709 and missing it also. We have a number of staff and students who do have it though.

 

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

I don't have this option either and my powerpoint is full up to date

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

You need to make sure you're "signed in" to PowerPoint 2016 as an Office 365 user. I initially was signed with my Microsoft account and it wasn't visible. When I signed in with my Office 365 account, it suddenly appeared.

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

Thank you for getting back to me

 

I tried what you said.  I was already logged into my enterprise's OneDrive account but I added a second service which was my  enterprise office 365 account.  I am using PowerPoint version 1803 (build 9126.2259 click to run)

Still don't see the option Publish to Microsoft Stream under file > export menu.

Restarted my computer but it didn't make a difference.

 

If you can think of anything else, please let me know.  I'm creating a video for teachers at my school to use this option.  I include the screen print that includes publish to Microsoft stream but I tell the teachers in the video that I can't get it to work at this time.

 

Thanks for your help.

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

 

I am not seeing the publish to Stream either I am on version: 1803 (Build 9126.2282 Click-to-Run)

I am signed into Office 365 - company on E5 plan.  I tried to open the PowerPoint Online, but recording is not an option (I don't often use the online versions of Office :-)).

 

Anything we can do to make it appear?  I really, really need it to promote using Stream in a more "casual" manner in my organisation.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

Can you see "Publish to Stream" under File -> Options -> Customize Ribbon -> All Tabs as below?

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

If selected as per above, you'll then see it on the ribbon, as belowPublish to Stream 2.png

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

Hi @Philemon Burney

 

No. I did open that setting and I do not have any stream in there :-(

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

Do you have a Stream license assigned to your Office 365 user account?

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

I assume so, since I can use Stream - I have uploded videos and created channels. Also this morning I was promoted to Stream Admin - I see the admin part of Stream now.  I have not rebooted the computer after I was made admin, but I am not really sure it should make a difference?

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

Great. I don't think that'll make a difference.

What about under File -> Account - > Connected Services

Do you see Sites and OneDrive signed in with your Office 365 credentials?

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

Yes, I am signed in. I have both OneDrive organisation, OneDrive personal and Sites organisation listed. Also I can add a service, but not Stream. I can add Storage: Office 365 Sharepoint, OneDrive. I can add Other Sites;  Microsoft Account. I can add Office Store.

That is it... :-(

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

OK. Thanks. I think we're nearly there as I see you mentioned you're also signed into OneDrive - Personal. As I mentioned a few posts above, on that same screen Files -> Account, under User Information, this must be your Office 365 account. If you have a user account with the same email address for OneDrive Personal and OneDrive Work this can be tricky to determine which is which.

You may need to sign out and sign back in or Switch account using the links under User Information.

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

I am signed in to PowerPoint as my work account(official E5 licensed Office 365 account). I have all the time been signed as my work account - Not my personal account (they are very different emails). I am also signed in on my computer as my work account.

In Powerpoint I have all the time been able to see under account; user information: my work account email address (and of course my name :-))

Today I removed the service "oneDrive personal" and closed powerpoint. Then I opend again with no change.  

No change to the customize ribbon - still the same as yesterday. No change to the Recording tab - same options as yesterday.

I will reboot later - don't have the time right now :-) and see if it helps.

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

Well done for persisting. It looks like it's not a usual issue I've encountered yet. I'm interested to see how it is resolved as it could well be an issue that crops up for many of the institutions I work with.

I'm clutching at straws here but could it be the region and language you're using may not be supported? I'm in UK with English UK.

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

I am in Denmark, but I have english menus in office - I also seem to remember that I set my Office 365 language settings to English (not sure if it is US or UK...) So in my appliactions and in Office 365 my language is English. 

Perhaps I just need to wait... Even though I think Stream Publish should have rolled out by now.

Thanks for trying to help @Philemon Burney.

I will try again Monday and see what happens, because I really would love to have that option in PowerPoint :-)

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

Hello Everyone,

I went to the help counter at a Microsoft store in Boston.  They also could not figure out why I didn't have the "publish to Microsoft Stream" in PowerPoint 2016.  They suggested I email the problem to Microsoft support but nobody from Microsoft answered me.

 

My school's MIS dept also doesn't know why our teachers can't get it on their computers either.

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

Hi All,

 

Yesterday I got my update channel changed to Monthly (it used to be semi-annual) and I also got an update of my office so I now have Version 1809 (Build 10827.20181 Chck-to-Run). Now I see the Stream option. So perhaps the version with the option is NOT the one sited by MS, but rather 1809 :-/

 

 

Re: Missing Publish to Microsoft Stream in Powerpoint 2016

You got it sorted! Hooray! Thanks for sharing the resolution.
