OfficeOne Kiosk Assistant 2.0

Kiosk mode slide shows in Microsoft PowerPoint 2000 used to reset to the first slide after a period of inactivity. Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 and PowerPoint 2002 (PowerPoint XP) lost this feature.

Using Kiosk Assistant

After loading Kiosk Assistant in PowerPoint, the kiosk mode slide shows would reset to the first slide after an inactivity period of 5 minutes. To configure the reset interval and the reset slide, follow these steps:

  1. Select the Slide Show | Configure Kiosk Assistant... menu item. You would be presented with the Kiosk Assistant Settings dialog box.
  2. Set the amount of inactivity interval after which the kiosk slide show should reset.
  3. From the list of slides shown, select the slide that the slide show should reset to after an amount of inactivity.
  4. Click OK.

When you start the slide show, Kiosk Assistant will start monitoring it and after it detects no activity on the slide show for the set interval, it will navigate the slide show to the preset slide.
