Adding a Printable Certificate with Date Stamp

Sep 24, 2014

I'm trying to add a printable certificate to a course that will be available on our Intranet for a small group of employees who do not have LMS access.

I used the following tutorial to add a print button, so the learner could print the cert. I also followed the instructions to add a system date to the certificate so there would be a date stamp for the learner. However, when I publish and preview in IE11, it doesn't work - I just see %SystemDate% instead of the date.

What am I doing wrong? I've tried adding the Execute JavaScript trigger to the slide without success. It also doesn't work on the actual text field with the variable reference.

Nicole, you indicated in your post that you just see %SystemDate%. In that case, I'm thinking you have not defined SystemDate as a variable. Be sure you create a new variable called SystemDate in Storyline. It must be spelled exactly the same way (including case) as it appears in your JavaScript script. Also, be sure you create it as a Text variable, not numeric or True/False. Lastly, be sure there are no spaces between percent symbol at the beginning and end of your variable embedded on the slide.
