Adding a Timer to Storyline Courses

Jan 15, 2014

Hello everyone,

A client I am working with has asked that the ability for learners to see how much of the course they have completed and have remaniing be added to a course produced using Storyline.  Studio had such an option but the only timer I have found in Storyline is related to quizzes and result slides.  Is there a way to add a timer displaying duration info for the entire course?  I would need for the learner to be able to continue the course even if they exceeded the time alotted.

Hello all,

I know this thread is old, but I need to pick your brains.

I used Michael Hinze's layer timer file (in this thread) and I love it but I need to the hours field. I have it somewhat working but once the minutes gets to 59 then the hours field will subtract 1 which is what I want, however, when it gets to 58 the hours field does a continual countdown which I just can't figure out what I am doing wrong.

I am attaching the file.

I really wanted to use the built in quiz timer function but on resume I need the timer to reset and I can't figure that one out either.

Any help would be appreciated so much.
