Say you’re delivering a presentation at a conference. And you want to share the soft copy of your powerpoint presentation with the attendees.

One way you can do this is by sending it to each guest via email. But this will take a lot of time and effort.

So you can convert your powerpoint presentation into a QR Code. And add the QR Code to the last slide along with a note such as—Scan here to download the presentation.

You can even use a powerpoint QR Code on product cartons, flyers, or brochures to provide information such as reports and user manuals to the end-users.

In this article, we’ll tell you how to convert a powerpoint presentation into a QR Code in two ways:
