Connecting your Prezi Design charts and maps to a JSON feed

If you're using Prezi Design to visualize data, you can connect your charts and maps to a JSON feed for live and dynamic data updates. As soon as you introduce changes in the JSON feed, the chart or map it is linked to will automatically update, including all embeds.

Paid feature: Connecting to a JSON feed is possible for users with a Plus or higher Prezi plan. Luckily it's a breeze to upgrade your license and get access to this and all the other great features our Prezi plans have to offer.

Connecting to a JSON feed

  1. After you've added a chart or a map to the canvas, double-click on it to access the datasheet.
  2. Select Add JSON feed at the top of the datasheet.
  3. Enter your JSON feed URL in the pop-up window and select Update to load it.
    Note: Your data should be in proper JSON format with sheets as outer dimensions (similar to spreadsheets in Prezi Design), followed by rows and columns. See an example here.

Now, after introducing changes in your JSON feed, the Prezi Design chart or map it is connected to will automatically update, including all embeds. The information is updated approx. every 10 minutes; if you'd like for the information to update quicker within the Prezi Design editor, click Reload at the top of the datasheet.
