OctoCue receiver#

The receiver app runs in the background on the PowerPoint machine. It receives click data from OctoCue and returns live slide data to OctoCue.


When installing (or upgrading) on macOS, you'll need to grant OctoCue receiver some access rights in System Preferences - see the macOS installation guide for details.

PowerPoint add-in#

The PowerPoint add-in is a small utility that:

  • Extracts slide data and slide notes and sends this information to OctoCue
  • Provides faster and more robust slide control options

OctoCue can operate without the PowerPoint add-in running, but no live slide data or notes will be displayed to the presenters.

Excel online and Excel on macOS have no support for the ENCODEURL() function used in this spreadsheet.
In this situation we'd recommend using the Google Sheets version.
