    Cool what's going on?

    Hello,

    Is the idiom "what's going on? " colloquial?

    I'd like to use it in a formal presentation, at work, on a slide but I'm wondering if that would be appropriate... What do you think?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    WIll

    In the right context, it's very colloquial.

    If it's truly "formal," then I wouldn't use it.

    Thank you.

    Would "what's happening? " be better?
