Exporting triggers from Storyline to .csv or other format

Oct 11, 2013

Hi all.  Is there a way to export all the prebuilt triggers in Storyline to Word or Excel?  I would like to know how many and what kinds of prebuilt triggers are available in Storyline.  I am still in the design phase working on creating my dataflow diagram for my e-learning course.  It would help me immensely if I could view the triggers and be able to design the dataflow diagram around the strengths and limitations of the triggers BEFORE I start building the course.

For example, is there a trigger to pause and resume a module from within Storyline? I know you can do this with an LMS.  

Pause and resume audio?

And so on and so forth.

Thanks in advance for your help with this.

Hi Sudakshina, 

You can't export out a list of all the available triggers but when you view them in the trigger panel, you'll be able to see the list that you can select from like below:

 Also, depending on what you'd like to do with the trigger will change the other options you see. And you'll also want to consider when the trigger should be used based on this drop down:

Thanks so much Ashley.  I had already looked at this, but your note gives me a different perspective and new questions.

What sort of JavaScript scripts can Storyline execute?  Where can I read more info on this feature?  In other words, can I create a custome JavaScript script associated with my course and have Storyline execute it?  I need some guidelines about using this feature.

Ditto with the variables.  Where can I find some additional info about how to use the variables and what types of output I can obtain with them?

Hi Sudakshina,

We support "Execute JavaScript" triggers, but we don't offer support on Javascript coding. That being said, there are some best practices and examples included here and there are a lot of community members who could help you out with those ideas. 

For variables, I'd suggest starting with this tutorial - personally, I think variables are the most confusing when you begin. But after a bit of trial and error, it's a bit easier to work with them. 

If you get stuck with either, I'd suggest sharing your .story file here so that the community can take a look and offer any advice!
