Use your organization's templates in PowerPoint [MS]

Organization templates are an easy way to align your presentations to your organization's brand. They're simple to use. Just go to your organization's templates folder on PowerPoint for Windows, Mac, or web and select the template you want.

Your organization must have an Microsoft 365 E3 or E5 plan to use this feature.

Where to find your organization's templates

Your organization's templates will be in a specific folder. When you get there, just browse the available branded templates to select the right one for your presentation.

Notes: 

  • If you can't find a template you want, contact your IT admin.

  • I you're an IT admin, for help creating an asset library for your organization, see Create an organization assets library.

PowerPoint for Windows 

  1. When you first open PowerPoint, in the left column, select New or, if you already have a PowerPoint presentation open, go to File New.

  2. In the New window, open the templates folder with your organization's name on it. You'll see branded templates within or folders containing branded templates.

  3. Right-click the template you want and from the context menu and select Create to create a new presentation using the template.

PowerPoint for Mac 

  1. When you first open PowerPoint, in the left column, select New or, if you already have a PowerPoint presentation open, go to File New from template.

  2. In the window that opens, open the folder with your organization's name on it. You'll see branded templates or folders containing branded templates.

  3. Double-click the template you want to create a new presentation using the template.

PowerPoint for the Web 

  1. Go to Office.com and, in the left column, select the PowerPoint icon.

  2. Under New, open the Office Template Library folder. You'll see branded templates or folders containing branded templates.

  3. Click the template you want to create a new presentation using that template.

Integration with Designer with branded templates

A great benefit of using your organization's templates is the ease of staying on-brand with PowerPoint Designer. If your organization's template is supported by Designer, you'll get branded, coherent slide suggestions that are built from the layouts in the template. To try Designer in your organization's template, navigate to a slide in your presentation and select Design Ideas in the Home Tab.

Important: Not all custom templates are compatible with PowerPoint Designer. If you're a template designer, see Creating custom templates that work well with Designer in PowerPoint for best practices information. Note, too, that Designer can't offer design ideas for all slides, even with a compatible template.
