“How do I restrict navigation until one or more modules are viewed?”
How do you lock navigation until the learner views all content in Storyline 360? This is a question that crops up time and again in the community. And for good reason.
When you’re getting started in Storyline, you learn to use visited states to evaluate when all items on a slide have been clicked. This is easy and doesn’t require advanced triggers or variables because everything is happening on the same slide.
But when you’re working across multiple slides and need to restrict navigation, you’re going to need variables. There are many ways to tackle this challenge. You can use text, number, or true/false variables. Whichever approach you take, this is a common task every Storyline designer should know how to do. And that’s what this week’s challenge is all about.
Challenge of the Week
This week, your challenge is to share a conditional navigation or bookmarking example to show how variables can be used to track learner progress.
If you’re new to Storyline or haven’t worked with variables, you can still participate. Post your question in the community and let us know where you’re stuck, and we’ll help you out.
