Changing Status of "Next" Button

Feb 03, 2017

I'm having an issue with my Next button.  I keeping it remaining hidden until the user has visited all five buttons.  These five buttons lead to five separate slides.  I used slides and not layers because I need to have closed captioning in the Notes tab which cannot be done with layers.   In the past I have successfully hidden the Next button until someone has visited various layers using variables and True/False values. 

On this I tried it two ways: when the five buttons change into a visited state, then the Next button appears.  This works when you preview the slide only but not when you do the entire project.  So I tried to use True/False variables with the different slides like I have successfully done with layers.  But this did not work either.

Any ideas of how to make this work?  Any input would be greatly appreciated.  I have attached the slides that I am working with.

Hey Jake!

It looks like Wendy and I were looking into your file at the same time. :) I like Wendy's method because she utilized the variables you already set up.

I did it a slightly different way - I created a new True/False variable called "Next Button", and I added these two triggers:

The cool thing about Storyline is you can usually achieve what you're looking to do a few different ways. Here's an updated version of your file, if you'd like to take a look.
