As much as we all hate to admit it, Powerpoint is still the defacto presentation tool, and it does provide some powerful diagramming tools that would be difficult to replicate.
I hate having to copy Aha views into Powerpoint, and the reverse isn't much better, copying individual PP slides as images into Aha notes. I want Aha to be the single source for all diagrams and not have them immediately obsolete. I want them to evolve like everything else in Aha and have their destination notebooks automatically update - one of the most compelling features of Aha overall.
I'd like to be able to add a slide from Powerpoint to a note/notebook and have it render natively. If I could edit that slide directly inside Aha, that'd be a dream.
Maybe? Integrate with Office 365, so you could grab Powerpoint slides from it, and if they change, update them on a refresh?
Thank you for your feedback on this idea. There is a Powerpoint add-in that allows you to show live Aha! views within a Powerpoint presentation.
Share a saved view as a webpage (learn more)
Copy the link to the webpage
Get Microsoft's Web Viewer add-in for Powerpoint (one-time install)
On a slide, go to Insert > Add-ins and select Web Viewer
In the URL field, paste the link to the shared webpage for your Aha! view
Remove the extra https:// at the front of the link
Hide headers and footers with parameters at the end of the url like this example: "account.aha.io/shared/123abc?header=false&footer=false"
Please let us know how this add-in works for you and if it solves your need for exporting presentations from Aha! to Powerpoint.
AFAIK, a link needs to be configured in the MS Web Viewer add-in in PowerPoint 2019 in this format:
If not, where can the link for the presenter be found?
Hiding the headers & footers (by adding "?header=false&footer=false" to the URL) does not have any effect.
How can this be resolved?
The MS Web Viewer add-in in PowerPoint 2019 does not seem to store (login) cookies and Aha does not offer a "remember me"-login option (idea?). So, the presenter needs to login, during the presentation (in the presence of the audience). How can this be resolved?
The proffered solution is not feasible. Microsoft Web Viewer for PowerPoint—its bugginess and unreliability notwithstanding—is not installed by default. The typical corporate user (like me) cannot install software locally, including Office plugins. I just had to submit a support ticket to the IT helpdesk to see if they'll grant me an exemption, but I am not optimistic.
As it stands, this is insufficient and the advantages of the dynamic nature of the roadmap cannot be realized in presentations. It is not, nor will it ever be, tenable to design and run major presentations through Aha! itself.
Troy its interesting too as our company goes to MS Teams and loosing the ability to copy whole slides I definity see an opportunity for Aha to drive more presentations but without the ability to quickly copy over PPT files/slides/etc. no one will adopt.
Although Mockup is useful...I don't see it as the answer that will allow our PMs to work from within Aha!. They need more power in the "WIKI" or the ability to import slides of PPTs. If importing slides of PPTs...they need to be able to easily edit the file without having to download and re-upload. See my note about box integration:https://big.ideas.aha.io/ideas/APP-I-5593
