"Custom Shows" in Storyline?
Forgive my PowerPoint parlance, but does Storyline have a built-in feature like Custom Shows? Here's my scenario: I need to present all the slides in more or less sequential order, but then at the conclusion of the first pass, evaluate which sets of slides need to be reviewed in another pass. Some slides are included in multiple sets. For instance, if you missed the question on slide 12, then you need to review slides 6 - 14; if you missed the question on slide 16, then you need to review slides 8 - 10 and 16 - 20.
I've managed to do it "the hard way," using a bunch of custom variables, which I set when a given question is answered correctly and then parse at the end of the pass to determine how to circle the user back through the slides during the next pass. Basically, I read any relevant variables at the start of a given slide's timeline. For instance, slide 6 would need to know whether you've previously answered the question on slide 12 correctly during the previous pass, but slide 8 would need to know about slides 12 and 16. If you don't need to see it, then we go to the next slide automatically. It's mind-numbingly convoluted, but I couldn't see any other way to make it happen.
It would be really nifty to have custom shows for this purpose. Since I know ahead of time which slides go together, so I could just say if you missed the question on slide 12, you need to see custom show X, which contains slides 6 - 14, and be done with it. That would be a lot easier to manage than manually querying hundreds of individual slides.
Of course, I'm open to any suggestions. Can something like this be done with scenes and I'm just missing it? It would seem that scenes might be a potential candidate, except you can't have a slide shared across multiple scenes. Thanks!
