How to create a navigation menu


In this example we will show you how to create a navigation menu that will help your colleagues to navigate easily throughout the publication.

We want to create this navigation menu so that the sales rep can show only content that is relative for the customer. Instead of showing a linear story, the sales rep can have an interactive conversation tailored to the customer.

This menu can take up an entire slide: 


Or it can be a menu bar at the side or top of your slides:


In our example, we combined both manners with a complete menu page and on the next slides a navigation bar - with the option to always go back to the complete menu page: 

For each button, we inserted an image or shape: 

Then we right-clicked on it and clicked on 'Link':

In the pop-up menu for the link setup, you can select the relevant slide to navigate to:

To make sure the user can not swipe to the next slide and he/she is forced to use the navigation menu, we have clicked on the arrows to make them red:

For the other slides, we have created a sidebar to be able to navigate easily through all topics. 

We advise to create this bar in the 'slide master' of PowerPoint so that you only need to create each option once and you can easily select that option when creating your slides afterwards. 

By highlighting the actual topic that is visited, the user always knows where exactly in the presentation he/she is situated: 

We have put our company logo on top. We'll use our logo to always be able to return to the homepage:
