You can create dynamic and interactive presentations by combining charts, matrices, and other elements. Now that we have created all the charts and views in the model, lets bring them all together into one presentation canvas.

Add a Presentation Canvas
    Step 1. Add a presentation canvas to your model.
      Select the Model Browser (Select View > Model Browser, in the menu bar, if the Model Browser is not visible), and in the tool bar, click on the "Insert Presentation Canvas" button or in the menu bar select Insert > Presentation Canvas.
    Step 2. Name the canvas.
      In the Model Browser, select the new canvas. Type in the new name "Summary Report".
    Step 3. Add Matrix Table View to Canvas.
      Click on the Insert Canvas Table View icon in the canvas toolbar, choose Sales Projections from the panel and click on the canvas the desired location for the view.
Your view should resemble the Illustration below.

Now lets interact with the views and change the assumption values.
    Step 6. Change the region rates.
      Double-click on the assumption matrix to get into interaction mode for the view. Change Region2 rate to 1.15. Note the changes to the sales projection and chart.
