Changing Multiple Variables

Sep 15, 2014

I need some help and when I try to search, it can't find any of my words, even though I know the word "variable" is in the forum somewhere because I probably asked this question before!

I have set up 5 variables, one main one called ExploreDone and 4 others that are on each subsequent page after a set process is viewed. I wanted to set it up so that when the 4 other vairables change to True, the ExploreDone variable changes to true and the course automatically advances to the next process interaction.

I know there is a way to do this, but I can't figure it out. I learned it in my Advanced Storyline course over a year ago and I've set it up in previous courses before but it ALWAYS takes me forever to figure out how to do it!

I just can't figure it out, I need to finish this project ASAP and I really don't have a work around. I don't want the learner to progress to the next section until I know they've viewed the content from the previous section.

Help is appreciated!!

Hi Anna,

First off, I apologize for the issues you've had searching the forums. The forum search is something our team is aware of and are looking into a fix for in the next update to the ELH site. In the meantime, you can use the site Articusearch to search the forums.

In regards to your variable adjustment, it's difficult to say for certain without seeing where and how these triggers are set up, but based on using the "variable changes" I suspect the variable is not changing on that slide but somewhere else? Instead, I'd assign the trigger to something that happens on that slide with the conditions that the variables you're working with are equal to true. It's also important to note that the trigger order execution is important and described here.

If you're still having difficulty, it may be helpful to share the .story file here with the community.

I'm experiencing a similar problem to Anna. I have set up 5 True/False variables, one main one called OneNoteHierarchy and 4 others called: Notebook, SectionGroup, Section, and Pages. 

Good News: The 4 triggers are firing and changing the 4 aforementioned variables to True. 

I wanted to set it up so that when these 4  variables change to True, the OneNoteHierarchy variable changes to True, and the layer Congrats is shown.

I cannot figure out why OneNoteHierarchy does not change to True when the other 4 variables are True. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I have attached the slide here.
