To install the Lucidchart integration for Microsoft PowerPoint, you’ll first want to open the Powerpoint program itself. Open any document and then navigate to the Insert tab near the top left corner of your screen.

For both PC and Mac users, you should find the Add-In tool here somewhere in the middle of the insert ribbon. Click the Store button to open Microsoft’s Office Add-Ins Store.

At the end of the file menu you should see the store button, right here at the bottom of the screen. Once you’ve got the add-in store open, you should see the "Lucidchart Diagrams for PowerPoint" add-in near the top of the suggestions but if not, that’s ok, just type “Lucidchart” (with no spaces) into the search tool to find it. Once you’ve found it, just click Add.

Clicking add should insert a diagram directly into your presentation. You’ll notice that you have a robust array of options here as the entire Documents page will be available for you to select any of your charts or even to create a new chart if you like, right inside of PowerPoint!

And if you need to insert a Lucidchart Diagram into a future presentation, just open the Insert tab and click on "My Add-Ins" to find it.

If this option isn’t available then you should be able to see the add-in on the far right-hand side of the ribbon. Note: If you make changes to your diagram in Lucidchart, you’ll want to come back to your presentation and make sure you click the Refresh button, here in the integration options.

Get the Lucidchart Diagrams for PowerPoint add-in directly from the Microsoft App Store here.

You can visit the Lucidchart Help Center on our Microsoft PowerPoint integration if you need additional assistance.
