How to open PowerPoint in show mode from Confluence link?


I have a macro-enabled PowerPoint on SharePoint and would link to have a link on a Confluence page to the file.  We'd like the presentation to open in kiosk mode so that navigation is limited to embedded actions in the file.  The presentation has a macro to open in kiosk mode, but it must be run when the file is opened.  I can achieve the behavior using a desktop shortcut with a command line switch in the target.  I've tried saving it in both .pptx and ppsx formats but both open in editing view.

Is there anyway that this can be accomplished from a link on a Confluence page?

You will need to save the PowerPoint file as a PowerPoint show file.  This will then run as a slideshow only.
