No creation is a solo effort! The collective power of the workforce is quite often required to finish a job within the deadline. The least we can do is acknowledge their contribution. Microsoft Office offers a simple solution for this. Similar to Movie-like credits, PowerPoint allows users to give credit to multiple people who contribute in some way to your work. So, let’s see how to add rolling credits in PowerPoint.
