In PPT 2003, there was a feature called Summary Slide whereby you could highlight all of the slides you wanted included in a Table of Contents slide and then just click the Summary Slide icon and the program would create a slide with all of the titles of the selected slides to act as a Table of Contents with hyperlinks so you could navigate quickly to any slide in the presentation. They took that feature out beginning in Office 2007. I would like to know if that feature can be recreated in any way in PPT 2010.

I found a workaround that involves more work than most people would like to do, but still works:

Create a new slide and place it before Slide 1. This will become your Table of Contents slide.
Copy the title from the first slide you'll want to link to, and paste it on your new Slide 1(TOC)
Highlight the title you've just copied to your TOC slide, and on the Insert tab, select Hyperlink, under Link to: choose Place in this Document, and select the slide whose title you just copied, then click OK.

This will create a hyperlink to each slide in the presentation.

The Expert Teylyn got me on the right track with the links provided, but it did not explain how to make the copied titles hyperlinks to use as a Summary Slide. So with the initial info of putting the titles on a slide combined with my own explanation of how to make those titles hyperlinks to create a Table of Contents on a Summary Slide, provided the correct answer.
