Generate Powerpoint From Presentation

We currently use Generate PDF for our sales teams who do not want to jump out to a web page to show roadmaps to customers.  This is still cumbersome to them as they use Powerpoint as their primary tool for presenting to customers.  Also, they often times need native language and they find it easier to just have Powerpoint handle the translations.  With a worldwide sales force of several thousands this is something that would greatly help with productivity.

    We have added a new option for exporting Aha! views from your presentations into a PowerPoint file!

    This is helpful if you have a set of Aha! views that you need to quickly have updated and moved to PowerPoint. Simply create your presentation and set the update settings for each view. Whenever you need the latest views in PowerPoint, click the Export icon and choose Export Aha! views to .ppt. This will create a PowerPoint slide with a PNG for each view in your presentation.

    This is no new capability at all, just a repackaging of the previously existing ability to create a PNG of a roadmap. Created new idea https://big.ideas.aha.io/ideas/A-I-16153 that hopefully puts enough of a fine point on the request.

    Hi Austin,

    for years you (aha) have been ensuring me, that this is not what users want, nor what aha wants, and them we get export of pictures? This is as rudimentary as it gets. I am happy that aha finally acknowledged the fact. But on the other hand, I would hope for little bit more invention than PNG.

    Do you know https://unfix.com/plotter ? Got an export to Miroboard. And see what Miroboard can do with it. That would be lovable

    This covers 50% of the problem from what I can tell.

    If I have a large table in a report and then export that to a slide the whole table is shoved onto a single slide cutting off any remaining content. This is the same issue your PDF export has where page breaks frequently interrupt content.

    A better solution should analyse the intended content on the slide and identify a reasonable break point to add an additional slide(s) with remaining content. Ideally you would do this for all export formats so exported data is useful.

    This solution does not meet my need. I also need the ability to present roadmaps "Offline".

    Is the workaround above the final solution? If so, many enterprises block Web Viewer and Add-ins, so not a viable solution

    The workaround mentioned above is too intensive to rollout across our organisation.

    Please advise whether this is truly being considered, as the admin note above is asking for feedback.

    What does 'likely to implement' mean? Can we expect this feature (ablity to export to ppt) available in the 1-3 months?Appreciate if the admin can further provide info on how the solution is likely to be implemented along with some timelines.

    Does moving it to 'likely to implement' mean it will move to 'will implement' in 5 years time [given it was first created in 2017 and has a very large number of votes]? Come on Aha and all good for creating templates however corporates are connected to and live and breath by powerpoint and security is paramount :-)

    Hi Aha! team!

    This is promising, but is there a way to make this work with the 'Allow only Aha! or single sign-on users to access' optin for the 'Share as webpage security' setting? As noted below, leaving this content wide-open to the internet is pretty rough. Seems like this is almost a really helpful solution though?

    The add-in in by pass is not a great solution as every member would need to coordinate the add-in for their workspaces. We need the capability to export to a PPT. This will allow for easier sharing (across the org & customers). It will also allow us to import our company template, which is currently a feature Aha! does not have.

    Unfortunately, this workaournd cannot work within our enterprise corporate environment as a shared public webpage does not sit behind our SSO walls, so anyone with this link has access to our data. We disabled shared webpage to all of our Aha instances.

    Heh .. this is the issue. I guess this has to be part of the "how to">

    Control whether Aha! saved views or notes can be shared as public webpages and accessed by anyone who knows the secure URL.

    I am afraid, that in corporate environment, not being able to share secured webpages, is kind of not helping much at all :-(

    Hi, Daniel. Did you use the url for your report's shared webpage? You can find it by going to this menu.

    While this work around may work for some this doesn't solve the problem. We have Sales reps that need to be able to show Roadmaps to a customer via Powerpoint. The reps are not always able to connect to the internet when they are at customer site. We need the capability for a Powerpoint generation just like is possible with PDF.

    Agree with all the points below, as we need to ensure its in our corporate Template, and Management does not want any Views Published to a Web Link even if they are password protected.

    I don't want the report name and the "last updated". You are only removing part of the header. I also don't want the power by Aha!/Login footer. They take valuable space.

    Basically its using the same fonts whether I put in an Aha presentation, web pages, and PPT, but each of those containers has different sizes and formatting becomes problematic. This also means providing Aha permissions to everyone who would use PPT since I don't want anonymous pages since it's a security risk.

    I would really prefer the ask which is a static export to PPT.

    Thanks for the offer to implement the Plug-In, however, we have decided not to allow our Views to be published as Web Pages. No way we want our Roadmaps to be published in such an unprotected manner. We covet our IP and what we are working on next. Allowing presentations that Sales Folks, and others (No Offence) share with Prospects with Roadmap links in them is not an option for us. We can "Protect" documents with non-disclosures, etc, but would not be able to control access to the web pages outside of the presentation. So, we will continue to desire a View to PPT option.

    Totally agree, a PDF is to rigid. Having the flexibility to add a presentation to existing corporate ppt template is the most efficient way to go.
