Preferably in the form of a sidebar with all chapters that you can click on.Thank you for your response

What you're talking about is called "Bookmarks" in the PDF-world. Open the Bookmarks panel on the left of the window and you'll be able to add/edit/delete bookmarks. Notice that the bookmarks hierarchy doesn't have to be flat. You can have bookmarks nested in other ones.

Couldn't the bookmarks be created when the PDF is created from the PowerPoint document. I haven't tried this but it seems since PowerPoint is part of the Office suite and you can create bookmarks from a Word file the same could be accomplished in PowerPoint.
Are there bookmarks in a PowerPoint Presentation? If so, it's likely they'll be preserved when converting the file to a PDF, but only if you use the built-in PDFMaker plugin, not if you print the file to a PDF or any other method of converting.

Bookmarks in a PDF from a Word file are build by Acrobat's PDFMaker using designated Word headings / styles. Unlike Word PowerPoint is not a word processor and lacks much of the requisite properties/attributes available in Word and made use of by PDFMaker. To observe what is available from PDFMaker for PowerPoint open the configuration preferences dialog for PDFMaker from within PowerPoint.
