Pie chart data labels not updating
If the graphs you want to use in your Power Point presentation will change regularly, it can be a hassle to create them from scratch every time there is an update to the data.It is likely that the data used to create the graph is coming from an Excel worksheet, so why not link the graph on the slide directly to the Excel data.

In modern versions of Excel 2013 and Excel 2016, customizing charts is easy and fun.
