Any way to identify a large number of individuals using their user ID and variables?

Nov 01, 2023


I have a piece of Javascript that brings the learner's User ID (which is a number) into Articulate and saves it as a variable 'UserID'. I have a list of 700 user IDs that need to see a different menu on taking my course.

Can anyone see a way to write a single trigger to identify these 700 accounts?

I can get it to identify them individually with 'If UserID is equal to 12345678, set variable Group1 to true', but I can't have a separate trigger for each user ID because there are too many. Is there a way to separate the numbers within the same trigger? Ie 'If UserID is equal to 12345678;12345679;112345671, set variable Group1 to true'?

Ideally I need to be able to paste the numbers from Excel or Word into a single field....

here a small Javascript, which can do this

var groups = {
1: [
12345678, 12345679, 112345671,
2: [
12345699, 12345698, 112345667,
// ...

var player = GetPlayer();
var userID = parseInt( player.GetVar("UserID") );

var result = 0
for( var group in groups ){
if( groups[group].indexOf(userID) >= 0 ){
result = group;

player.SetVar("Group", result )

Group = -1 -> not yet searched

Group = 0 -> not found

Group > 0 -> group number
