Data Entry / Data Population on Later Slides - Personalization

Hello, I hope you're doing well.

Currently we're not linked with an LMS for the course I'm creating.

What I am wondering is whether or not there is a way I can have a person enter their name, etc. and then use the name entered on an earlier slide to populate a field on a later slide.

I'd simply like to use the learner's name as they play their way through the eLearn.

Any thoughts or insights are welcome, even if that includes a javascript or a plugin of some kind to extract and reuse the data that a learner enters.

Thanks!

Hi Phoenix,

Welcome to the community.

This is a common question and is quite easy to do with a text entry variable. I'm attaching a sample I just mocked up very quickly for you and also providing this link to a tutorial on Adding text variables, where David Anderson explains how to do this, provides a demo, and another source file for you.

Please shout out with any questions.
