How to insert a live Spotfire in a PowerPoint

I’m embarrassed to say that I have telling people this wasn’t possible for the longest time but turns out, the Office Add-ins store had a plugin for HTML code in PowerPoint.

Setting up the Add-on

Go into PowerPoint, and from the top select Store. This opens the Office Add-ins for PowerPoint:

Search for HTML and select Office Apps Fiddle for PowerPoint.

Adding the script

Drop in your new add-in and select HTML.

Use the code listed here and replace it with the link to your Spotfire file. Serious caveat: You will need to log into the server every time, but that can simply be prep for your meeting.

Finished! The web player will be interactive inside the PowerPoint and works great. This presentation will stay current with your live data.

For some further improvements, you can use JavaScript mashup to integrate it a little better.

Regards,

Lucas

    Suggest adding a screenshot for how to find the Store. It took me a Google to get to it. And also, THIS IS AWESOME!

    Will the embedded analysis refresh After an scheduled Update Gas finished?
    This will be an quick Solution to create an easy 24/7 Dashboard.

    Solution for the Login Problem?:
    What about activating the anonymous Account for the analysis you‘ll embed in PowerPoint?

    Thank you for this excellent post. I found it very useful.

    My company is moving from Powerpoint to Google Slides. Any way to embed Spotfire analysis in Google Slide?
