Add placeholder slide status tag in PowerPoint.

Slide StatusSlide Status

Insert consistent and professional slides status symbols such as “Placeholder” or “Draft”. Hide, unhide or remove all slide status boxes with one click.
With the slide status you can set a pre-designed slide status such as “Placeholder”, “Draft” and “Input needed” or a comment tag like a sticky note. If all these possibilities are not enough, you can also define your own status. Using the Slides Status function within your presentation will not only make them look more professional and consistent but also have another big advantage against self-build status tags: Status or comments can easily be hidden, unhidden or removed if your presentation is shown to somebody who should not see them.
