PowerPoint’s animation options allow users to create a plethora of movement effects, all the way from the amazing to the dizzying. However, most of these animation effects have events associated with them. The three main events are On Click, With Previous, and After Previous. Whichever event you use, PowerPoint offers an extra animation option called Triggers. This causes your animated objects to swing into movement when you click an entirely different object on your slide. So you cause a click on one object to trigger an animation of another slide object. Although you may have set your animations to any of the three events mentioned earlier, it really does not make a difference since once you add Triggers, all of these animations will behave almost as if they were On Click animations.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.
