create use case storyboards
Use the "steps editor panel" on the left to define the steps of the main and alternate flows of your use case. Each step is associated with a PowerPoint slide on which you can create the UI Mockup / Wireframe for that step. The result is a "use case storyboard".
view main and alternate flows all in one view...
The PowerStory steps editor "all flows view", allows you to see the main flow and all of the alternate flows in one view. You can expand and collapse the alternate flows associated with steps.
...or view just one flow at a time to reduce clutter
The PowerStory steps editor "one flow view", shows you one flow at a time while providing you with links to navigate to and from alternate flows.
auto sync slide titles with use case step text
PowerStory optionally syncs the step text with slide titles, so you can choose to have the slide title describe the step, when in PowerPoint's full screen presentation mode.
generate test cases
Avoid the significant costs of creating test cases manually by using PowerStory to "Generate" test cases from your use case storyboards. Your functional test cases will be 100% consistent with your requirements.
export test cases to MS Excel
Export Test Cases to Excel, including identifying the user action and expected results
export test cases to MS Team Foundation Server (TFS)
When generating test cases you can export them directly into Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS), including the UI Mockups / Wireframes as attachments to test case steps. The screenshot below shows a sample result.
automatic traceability between test cases and requirements
Test Cases exported to TFS are automatically traced to their corresponding requirements work item
Attach to workitem in TFS directly from within PowerPoint
We make it much easier for you to attach your PowerPoint files to TFS workitems, by allowing you to do this while in PowerPoint. The next time you want to attach an update of that document to TFS is even easier, because PowerStory remembers which workitem you attached it to.
type ahead search
With such a large library of controls, often the most effective way to find what you are looking for is to start typing the name of it. Any matches are automatically displayed within their respective groups as you type.
add your own ui controls & groups
Even though there are over 250 UI controls shipped with PowerStory, you can extend this library by creating your own UI controls using PowerPoints extensive drawing capabilities. You can also create new groups to organize your controls. Don't be limited in your designs like so many other ui mockup tools.
organize the ui control library
PowerStory allows you to organize the ui library the way you like using drag and drop. You can move shapes between and within groups. You can also change the order of the groups by moving them around.
powerstory for reviewers
Reviewers can review a PowerStory based PowerPoint document without PowerStory because you can insert navigation links on slides and sync step content with steps.In addition, if you want your reviewers to be able to use the PowerStory “steps panel” to navigate, there is also a “Reviewer” version of PowerStory.
