In this video, I will try to explain you the screen recording functionality of Power Point Presentation. We can use this functionality to create video recordings for Trainings, end user Video, business scenario recordings and for many more purposes. I have used this functionality in one of our projects and this saved much of our time. This is one of the hidden treasure/functionalities which most of SAP consultants or most of IT people are unaware of this.
No need to install any screen recording apps on desktop.
No more creation of request, approvals for Screen Recording apps and this helps in lot of time saving.
Cost Saving/Reduction as no need to install Licensed Products.
…………….and could be many more.
