Functional Progress Bar

Sep 16, 2016

Hello heroes, 


I know that there have been a few threads on this topic, however none of them (atleast the ones I have read) have the answer to my question. 

I am needing to build a progress bar that tracks a users progress through a learning module, this is the easy part. However, if the user clicks to go back to previous slides, their progress should remain the same, meaning that if they have views 80% of the module and go back to where they had originaly viewed 40% it should still say that they have completed 80% and not 40%.  Note that this is not going to show in text form the % but will be using a flood bar (which has already been designed so I do not need help with that).


This would also be easy if it was exactly 100 slides and they all counted as the user progressing, but this is not the case. There are about 47 slides that count as progress, the rest do not. This is also not a quiz. 


Any assistance would be great.

Hi Leslie,
I am having a very strange problem with scrollbar. And this is strange as I had done it before successfully. All I want to do is creating a scrolling textbox. For example in this example, when you click on the first item on the clipboard-'ingredient' it should display the scrolling textbox. However I am unable to create a scrollbar. Please can you let me know what I am doing wrong.

Thanks so much with this and so many other things.

Hello Indrani!

You'll want to go to the Insert tab on the ribbon and click Scrolling Panel. Then click and drag on the slide or layer to create the scrolling panel. 

If the text box you want to add to a scrolling panel doesn't already exist, you'll need to add it to the slide first. Then select the text box and drag it over the scrolling panel.

When your mouse is over the scrolling panel, release your mouse button to drop the text box into it. If the text box is taller or wider than the scrolling panel, part of it will be concealed by the boundary of the scrolling panel.

I hope this helps!
