You can use EndNote X8 to add citations and reference lists to Microsoft PowerPoint slides (N.B. this feature is only available on Windows systems. It is not available on Mac). Unlike Word, EndNote does not automatically insert both the citation and reference list at the same time. Instead, you will need to insert the citation first and then the reference list record second.
In PowerPoint, you must select the citation style before inserting citation(s) or reference(s). Unlike Word, you cannot change the citation style after you have inserted citation(s)/reference(s).
Method one - Insert Citation(s)
Method two - Insert Selected Citation(s)
N.B. If you inserted a reference, the reference list will not be created automatically. You have to insert the reference list separately (see below).
In PowerPoint, you need to select the citation style before inserting the reference list. The reference list is not dynamic. When you change the citation style it will not change the list style:
Method one - Insert Reference(s)
Method two - Insert Selected Reference(s)
Edit in-text citations:

If you have started using LaTeX and already have an EndNote library, you can continue using EndNote for your references. However, you may prefer to switch to a program that makes using .bib files easier such as JabRef, BibDesk or Bookends.
Before exporting your references make sure:
1. BibTeX is an export option:
2. Each reference has a different Label
N.B. BibTeX will not work unless each reference has a unique name in the Label field.
Make the format easy to remember and consistent, e.g., 'Author:Year'. This will help to make it easier to cite references while you write in LaTeX.
3. Avoid any special characters (e.g. &, % or $) or any characters with accents (such as é) in the label field
N.B. Latex will not process these characters well and will stop the file from compiling.

N.B. you can sort them in your preferred order before exporting
You can add in-text citations and a formatted reference list/bibliography into a Google Docs document using EndNote, although Google Docs itself does not automatically format either the citation or the reference list.
The reference list/bibliography will not be automatically generated when you insert in-text citations (i.e. because the citations are inserted as temporary unformatted citations). To format the in-text citations properly and generate a reference list/bibliography, you will need to follow the steps below.
