Easy to Integrate and Use with Microsoft Office Tools

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: Great tool for heavy power point user. Most of the formatting and creating graphs and diagrams can be done under single tab .

Pros:

Most of the frequently used functionality is within on single tab. There is no need to switch tool bars often, therefore saves time and improve the level of attention in the document.

Cons:

Not all features are included such as Bold and Italic features

Hi Mogana, Thanks a lot for your review. It's been a while but I wanted to inform you that you can now find the Bold/Italic/Underline shortcuts directly from the Power-user tab!

A real productivity tool

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: This is a great software and I use it both in my personal and business work.

Pros:

I have used many productivity tools, but none can compare to power-user. This add-in really empowers my PowerPoint presentations and Excel files. I can prepare, design, and format documents, link and update my files with just one click, keeping the track where my linked files are stored and what exactly I have linked from excel to opt. The agenda update options are great as well. I can choose many slide templates and easily adapt them to my needs. This add-in helping me deliver better documents, while working faster to meet my deadlines within minutes.

Cons:

I need to relink my documents when I change the name of my source file.

Hi Borislava, thanks for this great review! Very happy to hear you seem to be liking Power-user a lot. Regarding your question regarding the link, you should actually be able to update the links after renaming the file if you just open the renamed file before updating! Feel free to reach out if you are experiencing any issue

Pros:

Malwarebytes refuses to allow updates. Quarantines items.

Cons:

See above complaint. This should not happen

Hi, this is a behavior from Malwarebytes that we have no control over. But you have the option as a Malwarebytes user to whitelist Power-user and enable the updates.

Power-user: Helpful tool for Document Generation

4.0 2 years ago

Pros:

Powe-user has more helpful and useful predefined templates, icons, images, maps and charts. You can create a own template and use it in other documents. Using the Tombstones you can insert the project reference inside the presentation.

Cons:

Power-user has more likable feature other than dislikes. When handling huge data sets in the excel, excel file crashes when Power-user add-on is installed. If the user forget to save or not auto-save is turned on work done in the file may be deleted. Power-user team should address and work on this issue.

I save so many hours with Power-user

5.0 last year

Pros:

The Excel-PowerPoint link is so useful and the pipette is one of the coolest tool to use in PowerPoint. The library brings me new ideas and help me not reinvent the wheel every morning.

Cons:

For now, I don't see any drawbacks in Power-user. It may be even greater if it was translalted into spanish maybe.
