PowerPoint Presentation (Create / Custom Templates)

Metric Insights provides you with a very easy and intuitive way to create a PowerPoint Presentation of any number of Metrics and External Reports (Visualizations).  You first must have a Favorite Folder containing those elements that should be included into your presentation.

This example shown in this article is based on the assumption that you already have a Favorite Folder that can be used as a source of content for presentation. For details on creating a Favorite folder, refer to: Add (or Delete) Elements to a Favorites folder

Reports with data collected on-demand and data tables are currently NOT supported in PowerPoint Presentations.

To learn more about on-demand data collection, see: Collecting Data on Report Request.
