Collapsing a menu as learning processes

Jul 11, 2013

I chose the option Auto collapse menu as user progresses in the player menu.  Initally it worked fine until I added a scene that contained a question bank.  Now the menu will no longer collapse after the scene is complete and the user goes onto the next scene.

Hi Kate and welcome to Heroes! 

Do you have any of your slides hidden in the menu? There is a known issue where auto collapse won't work as expected when there is a hidden slide within the menu.  If that doesn't solve your auto collapse, would you be able to share your .story file here with us so that we can take a look? If you're unable to share in the forums and would like to share with us privately you're welcome to do so here.

Hi Kate,

I see that Cleo reviewed your files and shared the following:

We were able to duplicate the menu auto-collapse not working if a quiz result is placed last in the scene. Unfortunately, we were unable to determine a workaround. We have reported this issue to our Quality Assurance team for their review. I cannot offer a time frame for when or if this issue will be addressed. I would recommend, at this time, to take a different approach like adding additional slides after the result slide.

By default, Storyline will not display result slides in the menu when previewing or publishing.  Please review the following article for more information:

Result Slides are designed/coded to pull/gather the scores from specified quizzes or question banks. A regular slide does not have this feature that is why a regular slide cannot display quiz scores even if you use the codes of the quiz results in it.

In a published Storyline file, the menu is set to auto-collapse. I moved 4 short scenes into the first scene on the menu using the arrow keys as they are a branched options form Scene 1. The auto collapse works fine for scene 1, but doesn't collapse for the other 4 scenes (each only has 3 slides, then go beck to the branching slide in scene 1)

Why would this happen? There are some hidden slides (lightbox mainly) but those are all in Scene 1 which is collapsing ok.

Looked through the community and I don't see a clear answer.
