Engage hyperlink to Presenter Slide '13


We have designed slides in Engage and we are now working with a trial version of Presenter to see if it will accommodate our needs. Our engage interactions have sections that I'd like to link to other Presenter slides. For example, I'll have an Engage Interaction with a FAQ section and I may have a sentence that says "Click here for more information". I'd like to have that link go to another slide in Presenter.

I came across this post explaining how this can be done but it appears those instructions were for the '09. When I try to add "asfunction:_level44.playSlide,5", Engage tells me the link is invalid. It appears it now requires http prefix.

Can anyone help with a fix for Presenter/Engage '13?

Hi Brian and welcome to the community!

The solution that was shared on Dave M.'s blog is not an officially supported solution for Studio '09. Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any method that will work the same with Studio '13. 

If any others are able to provide some suggestions here, or if you find a method that works for you, I'd love to hear about it. 

In the meantime, I'd recommend sharing a request with our product development team. 

Since you're currently trying out products, you might want to also check out Storyline. Though it doesn't support Studio '13 (Quizmaker and Engage) content just yet, you can import PowerPoint slides and jump around to any slide using triggers or hyperlinks. Might be worth checking out :)
