Presenting the Story Navigator

So you found your data, and you chose the right way to visualize your data.  Your analysis shows some amazing results and you want to present your conclusions to your management team?  Data Visualization Cloud Service can do it all for you using the Story Navigator.

The Story Navigator allows you to tell a story by sharing a series of insights with your audience.  Digging deeper and deeper into your analysis until you reach the point you want to make or the conclusion you want to share.

Getting started with the Story Navigator

Building a story is basically just creating a sequence of analysis.  Once you have created your first analysis, open up the story navigator and create your first insight in your story.

From here, just continue developing your analysis and each time you have reached a visualization you want to share in your story, add it as a new insight.  Notice how in the screenshot below, you start to get a series of dots each representing an insight in your story that allow you to navigate back and forth.

And while you develop your story, by adding more insights, details and visualizations, more dots start appearing.


When you found in the data the conclusion you want to present, all that is left is to rename the insights and add a description to make the story come together.  There is a shortcut in the left menu bar that allows you to easily go over each of them in order to change their name or add a description.


Presenting your Story

Once your story is ready to be presented, get into presentation mode and all of the analysis creation options will disappear leaving you with your story and the dots at the bottom of the screen to navigate form insight to insight.  How much easier can it get !
