Xcelsius issues PowerPoint 2016

We have been using Xcelsius for the past couple of years to create interactive dashboards for PowerPoint slides. However, it is not compatible with PowerPoint 2016 and after talking to SAP support they said best hope is to ask the community.

So, first of all I assume the main issue is that flash isn't supported by PowerPoint anymore, please correct me if I'm wrong.

My question: is there any way to make Xcelsius slide export work for PowerPoint 2016?

If not, is there any other equivalent software from SAP that will allow for interactive dashboards in PowerPoint?

If not, is there any other tool outside of the SAP portfolio that could do this?

Best regards

Hi Pontus,

Could you please let me know the SAP ticket number you raised for this?

Also, what version of Xcelsius you are using with Office 2016. You should be on Dashboard 4.2 to work with Office 2016. Refer to the PAM guide for supported versions.
