What is LiveLoop?
Millions of people work on PowerPoint presentations every day. However, collaborating with multiple people on one presentation can get difficult -- it's often unclear who should be working on which part of the presentation. Emails fly back and forth as team members try to synchronize their changes to a presentation, and even worse than all of the grief and lost time, serious errors can occur when trying to compile presentation materials from different people.
LiveLoop is a plugin for PowerPoint 2007 and PowerPoint 2010 that allows your entire team to work on the same presentation at the same time, seeing each other's edits as you type. Anyone can open the document whenever they want -- if they happen to be working on the same document at the same time, you'll be able to see each other's changes instantly -- even if you're on the same slide, editing different bullet points in the same textbox!
Thankfully, LiveLoop is not a Web application or a separate piece of software! It works completely inside PowerPoint and allows you to use PowerPoint's familiar and powerful features in a collaborative environment.
Is LiveLoop like Google Presentations?
Google Presentations is an independent presentation creation system that is delivered in a Web browser. If you've never used PowerPoint and only need basic functionality, it may be the best option for you. LiveLoop is designed for current Microsoft PowerPoint users who are looking for a real-time collaboration solution that allows them to continue using PowerPoint's familiar, powerful, and feature-rich user experience.
What are LiveLoop's system requirements?
To run LiveLoop, you must already have Microsoft PowerPoint installed, version 2007 or 2010. If you are running Office 2007, you will need Service Pack 2, which is a free download from Microsoft. LiveLoop may also prompt to install Microsoft .NET Framework Version 4. LiveLoop currently only runs on Microsoft Windows platforms.
