Do you ever wish you had a better way to share and present data in a dynamic way. Reports and Dashboards provide great mechanisms for publishing and sharing information, however when presenting the data to a group they often leave something to be desired.

Storytelling leverages the underlying Dashboarding technology but provides additional capabilities on top of this.

As you are looking at and exploring other dashboards you can now select any widget and utilize the pin icon on the on demand toolbar to add this to your pin panel.

Once in your pin panel you can drag these pins into any blank or existing dashboard or story to create or augment them.

Users can leverage the timeline capability to have items appear or disappear at certain points over the course of the story.

The best part about storytelling is that you no longer have to present static charts or images, you can now utilize engaging and live views of the data allowing you to answer question about how the visualization might change if different filters are applied in real time.
