What is Storydoc?
Storydoc is a software tool for turning static slides into interactive web presentations. It can be used for sales decks, one-pagers, reports, pitch decks, proposals, and more.
Who is Storydoc for?
We created Storydoc primarily as a tool for business content. It’s perfect for sales teams, marketing teams, and entrepreneurs. That said, Storydocs can be used across all business roles and industries, whenever you need a great presentation.

What do I get inside the tool?
You’ll have access to your Storydoc page template (or templates if you use more than one). In there, you can edit and customize the deck as much as you please: add, remove, or rearrange elements using pre-designed slide, suited for the most commonly-used parts of business presentations. You can also create personalized page versions: customize your Storydoc pages to specific customers, add their logo, name, or a personal intro. Everything happens in an intuitive no-code slide editor.
What is a page template?
A page template (we like to call it simply a Storydoc) is the interactive web version of your slides, hosted on Storydoc. You can easily create unlimited versions from your templates.
How many page templates can I have?
Depending on your plan (see the deal page on AppSumo for details), Start plans have up to 3 live templates, and Pro plans comes with an unlimited number of page templates.
If I reach the limit of live page templates, can I replace a template with another one?
Yes, you can always unpublish or archive a template you’re not using at the moment and publish a new one.
What is a personalized page version?
A personalized version of your Storydoc is a version which you customized to a given prospect or reader, adding in their name, logo, and even a personal note. Each customized version has its unique URL.
How many people on my team can use Storydoc?
As many as you need, depending on your plan. In all of our plans, we included access for “users” who can personalize, send, and track Storydoc pages and “creators,” who can fully edit the templates. For details about our plans, see our pricing page.
Who is a creator?
A creator is someone on your team with full access to Storydoc’s slide editor. Creators can edit the presentation template: add, remove, or rearrange the elements, or create multiple iterations to test out different solutions.
Who is a user?
A user is someone who can send out the Storydoc page or personalize it to a given customer: add a personal intro, their logo, or name. It takes less than 15 seconds to do it! Users, as well as creators, have access to full analytics with a personal dashboard and get Storydoc alerts.
How can I send a Storydoc page to my customers?
Storydocs work as web pages, every presentation comes with an individual link you can send and track.
How can I track my Storydoc pages and what data do I get?
Every Storydoc you send out comes with a unique URL, enabling you to track the activity of every reader. You get information about who read your content, how much time they spent on it, and where exactly they stopped. It all makes it easier for you to know when to follow up and what the next step should be.
Can I track traffic to my Storydocs in my CRM?
Yes, on supported plans you can easily integrate Storydoc analytics with your CRM or marketing tools.
Can I add a live chat to my Storydoc pages?
Yes, you can do it, Storydoc supports most live chat apps.
Does Storydoc support video?
Yes, you can easily upload video to your Storydoc page or embed a video from a streaming service like YouTube.
How do Storydocs stay on-brand?
All thanks to the “brand editor” functionality: a brand editor makes your Storydocs feel truly yours, by applying on-brand colors, fonts, and other design elements that distinguish your brand. Once you set up your brand guidelines, every Storydoc element you add will be automatically adjusted to your branding.
Where are my Storydoc pages hosted?
By default, your pages are hosted on the Stoyrdoc domain (yep! just like Google Slides). In some plans, you can get a custom subdomain. A link on a custom subdomain would look like this: https://yourcompany.storydoc.com/your-personal-URL. For details, see Pricing plans.
Can I have the content hosted on my website?
It is technically possible but would require a greater deal of effort and technological capacity on our end to still let you have access to a real-time editor, so we have to charge an extra fee for it. If you’re interested, let’s discuss it in more detail at a call with our. You're invited to book a demo or contact us directly over email.
Are Storydocs printable?
Yes, you can print a Storydoc from your browser, just as you can print any other web page. However, this will cause your document to lose most features that make it so effective: animations, videos, scroll-based interactive narrative will all be gone. Not to mention you’ll be left with no analytics insights! If you have to distribute a printed version of your Storydoc, we highly recommend adding a QR code to let your prospects enjoy the full experience.
