How to add Stamps or Stickers to PowerPoint slides?

Perhaps you’ve come out of one of the top tier consulting firms like McKinsey or BCG where stamps or stickers are the way to denote status of a slide?  PPT Productivity add-in for PowerPoint's sticky notes feature is great for annotating update requests and to do and (until now) has been the way we denoted slide status.  But in response to customer requests, PPT Productivity has added a stamps feature for PowerPoint.

PPT Productivity add-in for PowerPoint's stamps feature lets you add status stamps to PowerPoint slides. For example:

  • Denote specific slides as Work in Progress with a WIP stamp
  • Add a fast action request by creating a Please Fix (aka a Pls Fix ) PowerPoint status stamp for reviews
  • Mark every slide in your presentation as Confidential before finalizing by selecting all slides (Ctrl+A) and clicking the Confidential Stamp
  • Options are endless because you can customize the stamps!

Stamps are easily customizable to suit your company standards or personal preferences. Configure the words, language, colors, and even position on the slide of each status stamp for PowerPoint. You can easily share your stamp configurations with colleagues via email, or your company’s IT team can provide a stamp configuration via a central deployment for team or company roll-out.

Clicking each stamp button toggles the stamp on and off. If you don't want any stamps showing in the final version of your deck, you can quickly remove all stamps in your PowerPoint presentation once final review is complete with the 'remove all stamps' button (but if you want to use the confidential stamps in your final deck, you should either add them last or just manually delete the unwanted stamps).

This feature is available in all PPT Productivity tools - Basic, Plus and Power Tools. If you’re an existing user and cannot see them on your PPT Productivity ribbon, select ‘check for updates’ under the Help menu on the top ribbon (some organizations have disabled automated updates for company laptops).
