PPT Productivity PowerPoint add-in has 100+ time saving features including features to streamline the reviewing process. Add a virtual sticky note to the top right corner of your slides to note review comments and outstanding actions. Status stamps let you quickly denote slide status. Tags let you track the source of slides when compiling from multiple decks and let you do bulk actions on tagged slides like print.
Customizable Status Stamps
Stamps can be applied to slides to indicate slide status - for example 'Draft'. Most stamps are intended for use before a presentation is finalized. All stamps can be easily deleted with one click.
Stamps (aka stickers in some consulting firms) are fully customizable but the feature by default offers: Draft, Work in Progress (WIP), New, Updated, Confidential.
Stamps will be applied to either a single slide, a selection of slides or to the entire presentation. For example, you can quickly mark every slide in your presentation as Confidential before finalizing by selecting all slides (Ctrl+A) and clicking the Confidential Stamp.
Clicking each stamp button toggles the stamp on and off.
You can remove all stamps in a presentation once final review is complete with the Remove Stamps button (or shortcut key combination).
You can easily share your stamp configurations with colleagues via email. Your company's IT team can also provide a stamp configuration to all users via a central deployment (for team or company roll-out).
To add more permanent items such as watermarks, copyright notices, etc. to one or many slides, we recommend using the Slide Library to save and apply more complex shapes and formatting.
Status stamps can be added to your slide using the Status Stamps feature buttons on the PPT Productivity ribbon or the Stamps button on the Format Toolbar. The button on the Format Toolbar will always default to show your most recently used stamp, but you can select other stamps via the drop down.
Please note: The Format Toolbar which includes the Stamps features has been updated in June 2021. The video on this page shows the previous version of the toolbar. Learn more about the updated Customizable Format Toolbar.
Stamps are easily customized to suit company standards, alternate languages or personal preferences. Ctrl+click the stamp button to configure the words, language, colors, and position on the slide.
