Frequently Asked Questions
What is Xtensio?
Xtensio is a creative collaboration platform to design living documents, work together with internal and external teams, and flexibly share your work as digital presentations, responsive web pages or exportable PDF or PNGs.
What's a folio?
Folios are full-screen digital presentations, responsive web pages and exportable PDF or PNGs all-in-one. A folio can be anything from a brief business strategy exercise to a full-length presentation. Start with one of our templates, or create anything you need with the blank slate tool.
Your folios are live pages that you can edit and collaborate on with colleagues, clients and other key players. All of your changes—from dragging and dropping modules, to editing graphs, to changing colors— will save and sync instantly across devices. Here’s more on Making a Folio.
Do I have limits on how many templates I can try?
No. You can try all of our free templates with any of our plans. The limitations are only on your active folios. On the Free plan, you may have one active folio at a time. If you’d like to create another folio, you upgrade to one of our premium plans or delete the folio that’s currently active on your dashboard.
Is my data private and secure?
Yes. All Xtensio plans include 128 bit SSL encryption and backups to ensure your data is secure. Your work belongs to you. Your folios are private unless you decide to share them or make them public. Here’s more on the range of sharing options on Xtensio, from completely private to public.
Is Xtensio really free?
Yes. You will never be asked to provide credit card information for Xtensio’s free account.
What would I get by upgrading to a premium plan?
By upgrading to our premium plans, you’ll create a private and branded workspace with your own URL where you, your team members and guests can create and collaborate on multiple presentations and documents, lock branding across your deliverables with the team style guide, streamline the creation process with custom templates, unlock exports, add password protection and customize individual shared links, and view folio stats to stay updated on all of your projects. Here’s more about our premium plans.
What would I use the root cause analysis for?
This is a problem-solving strategy that allows you to dig deep into the origins of a problem and identify opportunities for preventing the problem from happening. This is a great exercise for startups, entrepreneurs and established companies looking for ways they can solve a problem in their industry.
Do you have any examples I can use?

What questions should I ask to find the root cause?
Once you’ve identified a problem, you can then start by asking ‘why’ this problem exists and naming symptoms. You’ll continue asking ‘why’ until you’ve uncovered insights that weren’t apparent to you before. You can follow along with the root cause analysis how-to guide for more tips.
Can I add colleagues to edit my root cause analysis?
How do I share my root cause analysis?
When you’re ready to share your analysis, choose between presenting it as a full-screen digital slideshow, sending it as a responsive web link or exporting your analysis as a PDF or PNG (premium feature).
