A couple of thoughts Cynthia, what about using embedded views into web pages and clicking through web pages rather than using PPT? Or using the Tableau Story feature? Tableau straight to PPT is going to require outputting images from Tableau and then importing them to PPT. It works but if you have to do this frequently, it would be much better to just build the reporting in Tableau and dump PPT. The plus side of going this route is that your audience can explore the data views themselves and potentially learn something valuable on their own.
I hope this helps,

Thank you for your reply. It is not possible to me to give up on PowerPoint for these projects. I am now thinking of adding a PowerPoint image for the background and export the report to PDF.
Do you know if you can change an image with a parameter? All of our presentation have logo's for the location represented?
I have found a work around that I am sharing here. I hope it spreads. I printed my workbook to PDF and then use Adobe Acrobat XI Pro to save as a PowerPoint. YES... Save it directly as a PowerPoint!
I have added my title sheet, etc as dashboards and logo, etc. There is just one thing... (ALWAYS) The format sometime changes it is always good to check no conversion is perfect. I changed the base report in tableau and it fixed it with the next test.
Oh, The end product that is exported out of Acrobat is images that is why it shifted. I was also able to import the images to templates without an issue.
