Just Launched! — Create a Self-Running Roadmap Presentation

Six hours, 700 handshakes, thousands of mouse clicks. Your annual sales kickoff and partner trade show are important events for sharing your roadmap. But it can be exhausting to manually present your plans. Over. And over. And over.

Aha! Notebooks can now be set to loop and play automatically — making them perfect for broadcasting your high level product roadmap unattended on the office flatscreen or in a booth at a trade show.

It is easy to publish and share nearly any view in an Aha! Notebook — roadmaps, releases, and reports. We hear from customers daily that being able to quickly build a roadmap and share it from the same tool is a huge timesaver. Our latest update provides even more options for sharing Notebooks as self-running presentations.

Here is how you can use this update to deliver the perfect presentation (without having to be there):

Set your presentation to autoplay
You maintain full control of how each page of your presentation updates when new content is added — show a live view, refresh on update, or use a snapshot in time. As you add roadmaps and reports, the team can refresh the screen and resume autoplay to see the latest changes.Aha! strategy roadmap on display monitor
Choose autoplay or manually navigate to specific slides.

Customize slide transitions
To give you more control over how each view is presented, you can now set the slide duration to your preferred cadence. You can also enable or disable animations on slide transitions.

Select the gear icon at the top right to access slide settings.

Whether you need to display product details in the engineering area, create live views for the executive team, or autoplay slides during that big trade show, you can now more easily control your roadmap presentations with Aha! Notebooks.

    Jessica, this is great, but can you open the Notebook web pages where they’re set to automatically transition (not requiring us to hit Play)? My organization wants to share the Notebooks along with other executive dashboards on TVs throughout our offices and we can’t do this the way we’d want without this.

      Hi Eric,

      You do have to press play to start the self-running presentation. Our product team is interested in hearing more about your use-case. If you would, please submit an idea for the desired functionality to the Aha! ideas portal
