Comments: A PowerPoint Tool for Collaborations

In this PowerPoint tutorial, we’re exploring a PowerPoint tool that allows you to add comments to slides. This is different from your own slides’ notes section, which are your comments on your presentations. However, if you want others to put their comments on your deck, make use of this feature.

This is useful if you’re collaborating with several people in preparing for a presentation. Available for PowerPoint 2010 onwards, with the Comments PowerPoint tool, you can annotate slides in a few simple steps:

Step 1

Start by clicking the Review tab. Choose the New Comment icon, which is grouped under Comments.

Doing so will prompt this box to appear:

Yellow pop-up box where you can type text

Step 2

Type down your comments. When you’re done, just click anywhere on the slide to collapse the yellow comment box.

Step 3 

Place your annotation anywhere on the slide by dragging this icon to your desired location:

You can create as many comments as you’d like. Review all your comments or make changes to any of them with these icons:

Edit Comment, Delete, Previous, Next

You can hide all your notes by clicking the Show Markup icon (which is automatically highlighted when you begin adding comments). You can click it to make all your annotations appear again.

There you have it! The Comments function is simple. It’s a helpful PowerPoint tool to have in your arsenal. You can now easily pass pointers and notes with your team, making collaborations efficient and hassle-free.
