Presentation Mode

Note: Presentation Mode is a paid add-on. Contact us if you’d like to activate a trial for your account. Some views which are being deprecated are not available to add to the presentation mode. 

Presentation Mode allows you to present live data from Ardoq in a simple way, and also to embed your interactive presentations outside of the tool. See an example presentation here.

It can also be used as a shortcut to quickly access Workspaces you are currently working on, or popular views and dashboards.

Creating and Sharing Presentations

1. Launch the Presentation Editor

To open an existing Presentation, just click on the Presentation button in the upper right corner:

2. Add the current view (could also be step 1 if you are creating a new presentation)

Choose the view of your data you’d like to add to a presentation, then click the “Add View as slide to Presentation":

To start building out a new presentation, click on the export icon and "Add to Presentation":

It is also possible to add dashboards to your presentation! To do so, click the option-button (three vertical dots) on the dashboard you wish to add:

3. Add details to your slide

You can add an optional description to each slide which will appear on the bottom of the slide. Remember to click on the Save icon. Use # for Headline text.

Change/replace slides 

Need to make a small change to your slide’s visualisation (or replace it)? Now you no longer have to recreate the slide and drag it back into the correct position - simply click the correct slide and update the view from there. To replace it with the current version, click the wheel-icon as shown below.

4. Presentations and workspace filters

When you add a view that don't have workspace filters set, we add them automatically for you. This is to make sure everything in the view will be shown. You can read more about new content in presentations here.

To edit workspace filters you go to the perspectives tab, and replace the slide  as described above.

5. Presentation settings

Go to the settings tab to edit the name of your presentation and define access rights. If you set the read access to “Everyone with a URL”, the presentation can be viewed by anyone with the URL without the person having to log into Ardoq. You can read more about permissions here.

Start the presentation by clicking on the purple play button next to the title. Grab the URL if you want to share it, link to it or embed it somewhere.

In most views you can toggle the legend when looking at your slides in Presentation mode. This is button is at the upper right corner and the legend showing component types, references types and formatting rules will pop up in the bottom right corner.

In the presentations you only see components from the workspaces you had open when you created the slides. Make sure all workspaces included in your view are open.
