How do you remove the menu section of the slides as users works through them?

I am creating an assessment tool and I do not want users to be able to flick back and forth between slides as each slide will be a question in the assessment.

Is there a way of removing the menu section on the left of the slides as users work through them?

I've attached a word document which crudely displays my problem.


Many thanks,

Hi Joe, 

Great question - and there are a few different ways you could look at handling this! 

One, you could remove the menu from those individual slides using the "slide properties" and choosing to customize each question slide to not have the menu enabled. Keep in mind that they'd still have the next/prev buttons accessible to them (unless you've disabled) so they could toggle/flip a bit.

Two, you could look at setting the entire menu to "locked" as that would allow the user to see the slides listed and know where they are, but they can only access them in the order you've designated. You'll see this detailed in the player menu settings here. 

You could also look at removing the question titles from the player menu completely, and then the user won't be able to revisit those slides directly from the menu:

Hope those ideas get you where you need to be with your menu set up!

Brilliant this helped a lot!

Thank you for getting back to me.

I have another problem I have posted as discussion if you would like to have a look?

It's regarding templates: 

Many thanks.
