# Advance slide automatically means by timeline?

Hi. I have a slide with a bunch of triggers with conditions and variables. I designed it so the learner travels through several layers and events, and ultimately, the slide will automatically advance to the next slide based upon those triggers, conditions, and variables.

Here's my question: I want to confirm that setting the slide properties to advance to the next slide "automatically" really means "advance when the timelines ends," not "automatically advance per the triggers, conditions and variables" assigned to the slide and/or layers. Is that correct?

If so, then it means I need to set the slide properties to advance to the next slide to "by user" instead of "automatically." Am I correct? I am using Storyline 3.

Thank you!

Unless of course, one of your triggers pauses the slide's timeline.
