Button won't remain on visited state when revisiting slide

Apr 04, 2016

So, I've inserted a trigger onto a button which changes its state to 'visited' (greyed-out) as well as jumps to another slide once it has been clicked (users return to the slide later). However, even though I have the slide set to 'automatically decide' when revisiting (I've also tried it with 'resume saved state'), when I return to this slide, the button is in its 'normal state' not visited state. When I preview the side on its own it works. When I preview the entire project it doesn't work.

I need to finish this course very soon so any help is greatly appreciated!

For sure, you want to delete the trigger that changes the state to "Visited". There is a built-in trigger that changes the state of an object to "Visited" when it is clicked, if the object has a Visited state. If you write a trigger to do the same thing, they will conflict with each other with results that are strange and (sometimes, but not often) wonderful.

Hi Bill,

As mentioned above, we'd want to take a look at the .story file and if you're using the visited state as Walt mentioned you could use the behavior of the general "visited" set up to allow it to work based on the descriptions here.
