PowerPoint - Adding Footnotes
Do you want a quick way to create an envelope or need to print many for a mass mailing? Printing an inThere are multiple ways to add footnotes in your PowerPoint slides depending on what you need. You can place footnotes in one slide, many slides or every slide.
Footnotes can include text and/or graphics and can represent page numbers, date and time, a file name, references, a web address, logo, etc.
There are multiple ways to add footnotes and each one affects the slides differently:
- In the Header/Footer area – footnotes will show on the slides specified in the settings
- In the Master Slide – footnotes will show on all slides related to that Master
- Directly on a specific page or pages – footnotes will show only on the slide where you place it
To use one of these methods:
Header/Footer Area – from the menu line choose Insert and then Header & Footer. From here you can choose what to include.
Using the Master Slides – form the menu line choose Slide Master. The slide masters that are available with your theme will show. From here you can change the preset footnotes. If there are not footers set up, just add them using the text tool or insert a graphic.
On a SpecificPage – using a text box or inserting a graphic position the footnote on the slide where you want it to show. If you have foot notes that change on each slide, you could use the guides to line up each footnote so they appear consistently on each slide.

LinkedIn - Update Your Profile
Is your LinkedIn profile up-to-date? Did you know that they have added a few more things to the profiles – such as adding a link or a file?
In case you have forgotten how to edit your profile – go to the Profile Link and then click Edit profile. From here you can add or change the following items:
- Name - First, last, and former names.
- Headline - This will default to your current job title (see the help section of LI to learn how to update your professional headline)
- Your Location – country, zip code and they recently added an option to either choose a major metro area for your location or the exact town (eg Greater New York vs Milford, CT in my case)
- Industry – general industry listings (marketing, HR, consultant, law enforcement, etc)
- Photo – add a photo of yourself
- Contact Info - email, phone, IM, and address (only visible to connections), as well as your Twitter handle and web sites.
- Summary - information about you – what is your mission, accomplishments, and goals. LinkedIn recently added the ability to insert links and files to this area. This is especially wonderful if you have case studies or other documents you want to highlight on your profile.

You don’t have to use all areas that LinkedIn provides, just those that apply to you. To make it easier LinkedIn provides a guide to filling each part out. Just look on the right part of the screen while in edit mode and you will see the areas of your profile that LinkedIn suggests you add information.
I recommend checking your LinkedIn profile monthly, just to see if there are any new features or to add a recent accomplishment. If you need help in with LinkedIn or other social media outlets contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to help you move forward.
