To link a specific area --the hotspot -- of the image map, you must first let PowerPoint know that this area is going to be the hyperlink to another location.

In the example of the ABC Shoe Company we will link specific areas of the column chart to other slides in the presentation.

Choose Slide Show > Action Buttons > Custom. The Custom button is the first button on the top row of buttons.
