I had a huge amount of powerpoint presentations (more than 1000).
How can organize it adding metadata to PPT ?
Thank you in advance

Hi, welcome to the community.

IMatch automatically manages your Office documents and imports all standard metadata ExifTool can extract.
Different Office products in different versions produce different sets of metadata. Microsoft also has sometimes strange issues with metadata so your mileage can vary.
If you switch the Metadata Panel to the Office (Older) or Office 2007+ layouts you can see the standard data contained in your files.

When you add metadata in IMatch, IMatch stores it in an XMP sidecar file in the same folder as your Office document. Neither IMatch not ExifTool can update Office documents.
