Power Point XCelsius dashboard - Offline navigation of last data retrieved

Hi all,

my problem is concerned with the possibility to distribuite PowerPoint XCelsius dashboard that maintain inside them the data of last online refresh.

I have built a dashboard that retrieves the data only by pressing the refresh button. I saved the dashboard in ppt format.

When i'm connected to the intranet, i open the ppt file, after pressing the refresh button the InfoView credential input mask appear; i submit user and password and the data appear. Then i esc from the presentation, save the ppt file and close. When i reopen the file the dashboard appear without the data that i retrieved at the save moment.

For my projectual requirements this is dramatic!!!

Obviously the question is this:

Is possible to create a XCelsius dashboard saved in ppt format that maintain, after saving it, the data retrieved in the last online refresh?

Can you help me?

best regards

    Hi,

    Try the 'Local Scenario Button' component. This might be good enough, but the local version that is saved should not be considered robust long-term storage.

    There are a few posts on the interwebs about persistent data in Xcelsius, like here:

    Hope that helps.

    We have handled this need with a tool that you can add to your Xcelsius or Dashboard Design model and it will export to PowerPoint (PPT as well as Image and PDF) as a snapshot of the screen. You can add this call as a button to your dashboard or directly from a URL that you can place in InfoView or any application. It can be found at www.mcmanussoft.com
