Exporting your selected analysis to PowerPoint
Once you've made a deck, you can then export it to PowerPoint or Excel as editable charts/tables.
- You can customize the exports (see below - for different statistics, statistical indicators like ABCD letters, and selected rows/columns on the table plus color options and templates).
This icon down, square with a down arrow, at the bottom of the deck does the export. It offers you a choice of PowerPoint or Excel.
When you export to PowerPoint (or Excel):
- It will produce editable PowerPoint objects (charts and tables and text fields)
- Each analysis is saved to its own slide in PowerPoint or a tab in Excel
Templates and colors
- Your color palettes and PowerPoint templates are managed by dataset Editors (so you may need to contact your DP department to get this set up).
- Anything you do in the Edit slide (see below) will override any templates - so you have fully custom control over the slides.
- Tip: You can apply Microsoft Chart Templates once in PowerPoint to turn your editable chart into whatever PowerPoint chart you like. So you can borrow your existing chart design easily and you don't need to do it all over again each time.
Editing deck slides for custom exports
You can edit the deck slides, to customize the export (to PowerPoint or Excel). It also corresponds to how this tile will look on a dashboard (we cover creating dashboards in another section).
Editing a slide can let you:
- Suppress row or column categories
- Reorder row or column categories
- Change the statistical settings (eg: getting ABCD letters on a table export in Excel)
- Customizing colours
- Change smoothing (ie: moving averages on time series charts)
- Additional footer/notes/description overrides
Important: These edit changes in the slide ONLY affect how the publishing of the slide appears (in PowerPoint, Excel or a dashboard). These changes are NOT reflected in the analysis area.
