Here you can control what to include in the slides, date and time, slide number and footer text. Make sure to check the Footer checkbox and enter a desired footer line. If you want to avoid showing this footer text in the title slide template, then you can check the Don’t show on title slide.

You can edit the footer template for any desired layout. For example, you may want to show the footer only on the title + content slide layout, or the comparison layout but not in the cover slide. You can do this by editing the Master Slide or PowerPoint template and then choose the Footer section. Here you can apply any text style or transformation for the footer.

    1. Hi Shamim. The best way to do is is editing the template in PowerPoint using Slide Master view ( click View -> Slide Master ). Then choose the layout where you want to the logo to appear or if you want the company logo to appear in all the slides then you can just edit the first slide, aka Slide Master.
