Creating a slide

In this section you will find how to add slides to a story, and add data to your slides from multiple sources.

Adding a slide to a story

You can extend your story by adding one or more slides to it.

Do the following:

  1. From the app overview or sheet view, click Story Mode to view the stories.

  2. Click on the story you want to add the slide to.

    The story opens in storytelling view with slide thumbnails visible in the story timeline.

  3. Click Create new in the story timeline.

A new slide is added. You can now add contents to the slide, such as snapshots.

Adding a snapshot to a slide

You can add snapshots to a slide from your Snapshot library.

Do the following:

  1. In storytelling view, click Snapshot in the story tools panel.

    The Snapshot library is opened. The date stamp and any annotations helps you to distinguish between your snapshots.

  2. Locate the snapshot you want to add and drag it onto the slide.

    The snapshot snaps to the grid. You can use the keyboard arrows to move it freely.

The snapshot is placed on the slide.

Adding a live data sheet to a slide

You can add live data sheets to a story slide. When you insert a live data sheet to a story, the current selections of the app are saved with the selected sheet. Every time a live data sheet is viewed in a story, these selections will be applied.

Do the following:

  1. In storytelling view, click App objects in the story tools panel.

    A dialog opens.

  2. Click the sheet you want to use in the story.

The live data sheet is added to a new slide.
