Using Haiku Deck to Make Your PowerPoint Amazing

When we first introduced Haiku Deck, our little app was hailed by some as a PowerPoint “killer,” but those who know us well know that we here at Haiku Deck are lovers, not a fighters. That’s why we’ve been working hard to make Haiku Deck export even better for users who still rely on PowerPoint. Pro subscribers have found all kinds of great ways to use Haiku Deck and PowerPoint together to address the age-old question, “How can I make my PowerPoint presentations amazing?”

Here are 8 ways to use Haiku Deck to make your PowerPoint presentations way better and to get even more from Haiku Deck. 


8 Ways To Make Your PowerPoint Amazing with Haiku Deck – Created with Haiku Deck, presentation software that inspires

  1. Using editable export, you can now replace Haiku Deck fonts with your company font when you edit in PowerPoint or some other .pptx-loving app.
  2. Using Haiku Deck export you can merge your Haiku Deck slides with slides in a pre-existing PowerPoint. This is great if you want more visual “header” slides or section breaks to break up the monotony of a traditional boring corporate template.
  3. Using editable export, you can tap into advanced PowerPoint features like slide builds so that one bullet shows up at a time as you’re delivering your presentation
  4. Using uneditable Haiku Deck export, you can share your deck with anyone, knowing that even if they don’t have the same font installed, your presentation will still look the way you want.
  5. Using export you can create a quick bar, pie, or stat chart 10x faster using Haiku Deck’s point and click charts and then easily merge them to make your dusty old presentation look better.
  6. Use an exported .pptx to run your Haiku Deck as a looping presentation for your lobby, event, or trade show booth.
  7. Add audio, video, timing or narration to your Haiku Deck
  8. Use Haiku Deck Zuru’s artificial intelligence to automatically transform your PowerPoint into a more beautiful editable .pptx presentation.

Add Custom Branding to Your Haiku Deck

We’re happy to announce that Haiku Deck Pro users can now add a custom branding to appear on their decks in place of the Haiku Deck logo.

When added to your Haiku Deck, custom logos appear in 3 places:

  1. At the top of the Haiku Deck Player on the Web
  2. On the final slide during iPad app playback.
  3. On .pdf print-outs created during Haiku Deck .pdf export

Users may also set a web address to make their logo a clickable link to their web site when viewed on the web.

To add your custom logo, start by clicking on the shield icon in the top of the Haiku Deck editor.
