💡 Quick Tutorial

Create Presentations in Mere Minutes

Making a presentation doesn’t have to be a slog.

Have ChatGPT whip up a stellar outline and write either the VBA code for PowerPoint or Google Apps Script for Google Slides. Then all you have to do is pop the code into your preferred platform and finesse the design.

You’ll be ready to impress within minutes.

Step 1: Outline Your Presentation

You have a few options for creating your presentation outline, including:

1. Assemble the outline yourself, in which case, move to Step 2.

2. Upload a PDF and ask ChatGPT to create an outline from it. Use the prompt: “You are an expert in creating presentations. Based on the content of the PDF I’ve uploaded, create an outline for a presentation. Ensure each slide summarizes key points from the PDF efficiently. Use a maximum of [desired amount] of slides.”

3. Ask ChatGPT to research a topic and create an outline. Use the prompt: “You are an expert in creating presentations. Research the topic: [topic], and create a presentation outline covering key points about [topic]. Use a maximum of [desired amount] of slides.”

TIP: If you know how you want the slides to be organized, add this to your prompt: “Structure the presentation into the following sections: [section, section, etc.]”

Steps 2-4 for PowerPoint Presentations

Step 2: Ask ChatGPT to generate the VBA code using the prompt: “Please write me VBA code to create a PowerPoint presentation using the following outline: [paste your outline].”

Step 3: Add the VBA code to PowerPoint

  1. Once ChatGPT generates the VBA code, select ‘Copy code’ (top right corner of the code block).

  2. Open PowerPoint. Select ‘File’ > ‘Options’ > ‘Customize Ribbon’ (on the left side-bar).

  3. Under ‘Main Tabs’, check the ‘Developer’ option. Click ‘OK’.

  4. Click on the ‘Developer’ tab (in the bar along the top of the screen), and select ‘Visual Basic’.

  5. Within the ‘Insert UserForm’ dropdown, click ‘Module’.

  6. Paste ChatGPT’s VBA code into the module window, and hit the ‘Run’ button to generate a basic presentation.

Step 4: Design your presentation

  1. Select the first slide. Click ‘Designer’ (in top right of menu bar).

  2. In ‘Themes’, click on ‘Design Ideas’ to preview design options. Select which design you like.

  3. Repeat the first two steps for each slide.

  4. If desired, add additional content, images, or multimedia

Steps 2-5 for Google Slides

Step 2: Ask ChatGPT to generate Google Apps Script using the prompt: “Please write me Google Apps Script to create a Google Slides presentation using the following outline: [paste your outline].”

Step 3: Open Google Slides, and create a new blank presentation

Step 4: Run the code in script editor

  1. Click ‘Tools’ > ‘Script Editor.

  2. Create a new project by clicking ‘File’ > ‘New’ > ‘Project'. Name your project, and click ‘Create’.

  3. Delete the default code in the script editor. Then paste the code from ChatGPT.

  4. Click ‘Run’ to generate a basic presentation.

Step 5: Customize and enhance your presentation
