Either, but keep it consistent throughout

This is correct but the real tasteful right answer is below- NO. Not a full sentence- no punctuation

No.

Yes, if it’s a sentence. No, if it’s a fragment. Be consistent throughout your project duration.

No periods, periodttt

No. If it’s not a complete sentence, a period makes no sense. If it IS a complete sentence, it shouldn’t be a bullet point.

I am very anti periods and one time my micromanager edited my slides and added a period to every single bullet. Even the ones with a single word. • Petty.

I always use ellipses after every bullet... always leaves the client wanting more... but they have to pay for it first...

I like to alternate. For instance: - First bullet point. - Second bullet point - Third bullet point. - Fourth bullet point My leadership has stopped asking me to make decks though. Not sure why?
