Okay, we are importing our many powerpoint decks into Storyline and
restoring links between presentations. We have even tested the whole thing
out on SharePoint. Looks great!
Given there is still a desire on behalf of SMEs to source presentations in
PowerPoint, what is the best way to keep our links intact after changing
one of the source presentations. I am guessing that if we change the
source presentation, we will need to re-import said presentation into
Storyline again, re connect the links, etc.
The idea is this. An engineering lead pitches design ideas for a feature
for the coming sprint. That idea then gets implemented. The tech writer
type (who was involved in the process at the pitch phase) then imports said
description and visuals from the powerpoint into the overall Storyline
project and publishes said project to Sharepoint in the spirit of cross
team collaboration and learning.
These projects will get pretty big. I noticed that Storyline uses Flash.
Are there any browser limitations that anybody has experienced?
