Hi,

We're sharing powerpoint shows in our MS Team. We chose this format, so that users do not get the edit options for the slides. The slides can contain hyperlinks, both to websites as to docs uploaded to our Team. Somehow, they don't work when a .ppsx document is opened in MS Teams. If we use the normal Powerpoint document format, the links do work.

I would like to get the slides in show-mode, and the hyperlinks to work. How can I achieve that?

Hi @arjantupan

Do the hyperlinks work if a user opens the ppsx file in PowerPoint as opposed to opening it within Teams itself?

Sounds like a restriction of Teams but wanted to check first

Best, Chris

It appears that if I upload a .ppsx file to my Teams channel file tab, then get the link, then desire to place it into a PowerPoint tab, Teams will not allow me.  What is the recommend approach for playing .ppsx files within a Team channel, especially if we have the link?

This also happens to me even when I embed files to the PPT and export (with the folder of docs to reference) to ppsx. Must be a permissions issue.
