Office Remote Frees You To Pitch…
You have to get up in front of a crowd however big and run your PowerPoint and/or other Office documents and the last thing you want is to fumble with your laptop.
You want to look polished, professional and prepared but the event venue or simply your company doesn’t have a clicker or if they did it’s not been seen since the last time it was used.
Pop quiz Hotshot. What do you do?
The Microsoft Office Team Gets It
It in this case being real world use cases of their products. When your use case is presenting your Office documents to others then your best solution is Office Remote App for Windows Phone.
The app allows you to pair your Windows Phone with your PC via Bluetooth and whichever Office documents you have open are available for you to select from the phone and click through.
On running the app from your phone it instructs you to download and install the add-on to your Office on the PC, after pairing you choose the document, spreadsheet or presentation listed and click to access it.
Office Remote offers the users the choice of a virtual laser pointer and click through slides in the case of PowerPoint.
The Warptest POV
In a nutshell, the days of the panicked scramble to find your clicker the evening before your presentation are done. This is one more reason why the Windows Phone is an integral part of Microsoft’s Windows 8 and Office ecosystem.
If you are an event organizer, an academic or one of many other users who have to pitch their presentation in front of others then you have another major reason to consider Windows Phone. At the very least, you need to find out which of your work mates have a Windows Phone so you can borrow it in a pinch.
After using the app myself it felt TED-worthy to remote click from my phone and run my PowerPoint.
Once again Microsoft delivers an excellent solution for free as an add-on that supercharges your existing tools. I’m giving Office Remote for Windows Phone a strong recommendation.
So RIP missing clicker.
