Comments in PowerPoint

Comments in PowerPoint are the most effective way of giving feedback to your team member/s especially when the feedback is given remotely rather than in-person. 

Adding comments to specific elements on the slides provides a better recall of what specifically needs to be done on the slide rather than second-guessing.

You can add a comment through the “Review” menu following the steps for older versions. You can also add a comment through the “Insert” tab.

Adding Comments Using the “Insert” Tab

Step-1: Click on the “Insert” tab

Select the slide where you want to add a comment from the slide navigation pane and then click on the “Insert” tab in the menu ribbon located at the top of the screen.

Step-2: Click on the “Comment” button

Now you have to click on the “Comment” option in the “Comments” section of the “Insert” menu. It will open a “Comments” sidebar on the right side of the screen.
