Creating Slide show

Slideshow of Views

You may often need to display reports & dashboards on Large TV screens, for a live view of important metrics and trends. Zoho Analytics allows you to do this by publishing the views in your workspace as a slide show.

You can embed as well as create a permalink for the slide show (to access it standalone) as needed.


  • This option is only available in the paid plans of Zoho Analytics. To learn how to subscribe to a paid plan, click here.
