How to add speaker notes

Use speaker notes to note down key points (or important jokes!) that you don’t want to forget to mention when presenting. You can add notes on every slide of your presentation.

Enter speaker notes for a specific slide

  • Click on the Notes icon in the bubble bar.

  • Type your notes. Highlight parts of the text to pull up the text editing capabilities (i.e. bold, italic, add link).

See your notes in action

  1. Click on the Play button on the top right-hand corner.

2. Enter Speaker view from the top right-hand corner.

Once you’re done typing your notes, the changes will be automatically saved and you can immediately move on to the next slide. If you duplicate a slide, your notes will not be moved over to the duplicated slide.

If you move a document to a different workspace or if you move a document from your private folder to a workspace folder, all of your speaker notes will remain available in that presentation.

View and add speaker notes on mobile

You can prepare key points, reminders, and other notes on the go using our iOS and Android apps. To add notes, you can open the slide view in a deck and tap Notes to prepare talking points to refer to while presenting.
