In PowerPoint, you can collaborate with colleagues to give notes and feedback by using comments.
When you see a comment icon on a slide, click it to open the Comments pane to see what has been written.
You’ll see who wrote the comment and when the comment was made.
You can delete it or you can reply.
When you reply, it adds another comment icon under the other one, showing there is a thread of comments.
