In academic and business presentations, usually there exists a slide representing the table of contents. Furthermore, usually the presentations are structured using sections/headings and subsections/subheadings in the slides. However, why do the users need to create everything manually? Why there is no automatic creation of a table of contents? Why there is no way to declare a text as heading or subheading? Why is it not possible to automatically display the running headline in the header of the page? Please add an automatic table of content & these outline features for impress. For a good impression, how this could look like, please have a look at following presentation created with the Latex beamer class: http://latex-beamer.sourceforge.net/beamerexample1.pdf

Some parts of your request are carried out with the title field in the layout. You can mark a number of slides and then use 'Insert' > 'Summary slide' to get a slide, where the titles of the marked slides are the items in the outline. So you get your table of content. The other way round, if you use the slide layout "Title,Text" to write your table of content, then duplicate that slide and then use 'Insert' > 'Expand Slide'. Now this slide is replaced with a series of slides, where each former outline item becomes the title of a slide. To get more fields in impress, like those in Writer, is already tracked in issue 60595. Therefore this request should concentrate on the request to have a "running headline" as it is possible in Writer with fields in the header. Compared to Writer the feature of heading levels is missing too.
