The Dynamic Time Add-In for PowerPoint

Customers have asked us many times if there was a device or tool for PowerPoint that can be used to dynamically display time periods during a presentation. To leave no customer unsatisfied, we have designed and developed the “Dynamic Time Add-In.”

With the help of our revolutionary tool you can easily show any kind of date and time setting and integrate dynamic time displays in your next PowerPoint presentation. Configure and modify text boxes and you can create dynamic preset dates according to your requirements.

The feature >presenter view in PowerPoint provides a temporal overview while performing (>presenter view) so that a speaker can have help to stay within a certain time frame. However, this tool is only visible for the presenter and not for his/her audience. That is why our “Dynamic Time Add-In” complements your current PowerPoint version with smart features to integrate the time, date and countdown in your next presentation.

Four in One: Time, Date, Counter and Countdown

Business presentations, slideshows, info screens or exhibition presentations: a time or countdown can be crucial for your business presentation and highlight a very important factor of your statement. By showing a countdown you demonstrate, for example, the upcoming release of a new product or the relaunch of your website.

This will give your presentation a vital and dynamic touch and you will benefit from tools that are not accessible to everyone. We created this article to get you started and to simplify the beginning. You will be guided through the installation process and with a few easy clicks you add all features to your PowerPoint program. Follow some simple instructions and start modifying now.

Quick Installation and Ready to Go

Instructions

After downloading the tool, the add-in is automatically installed (you may need administrator rights) and a new tab will be integrated into PowerPoint.

After the installation, open PowerPoint and click on “DynamicElements.” Then select “Time” to open the “Time” panel.

Insert a new text box and define which mode you want to use.

You can open as many textboxes as needed and add date and time displays. Just create a new text box and activate the required mode by using the “Time” panel on the right side (pre-defined setting is “Nothing”).

Choose from four different modes:

  • Clock (to display time)
  • Date (to display dates)
  • Counter (to count time in days, hours, etc.)
  • Countdown (to count down)

Define your given time zone or otherwise the time zone will be automatically set.

You can display any time and date format in one box or split the time into single parts (i.e., date in hours, minutes and seconds).

To view the dynamic element click on “Slide Show” and “From Current Slide.”
