How to change the title of a storyline quiz?

I've been trying to change the name of my quiz from "results" to the name of the course in storyline, but I haven't been able to find a place to change the quiz title. I'm talking specifically about the name of the quiz that appears when you try to print it.

I read somewhere around here that I could edit the printed quiz in the reports.html file of the published storyline project, but when I went in and changed the <TITLE> section from "results" to "Understanding and Preventing Bullying[...]" and saved, there was no change when I tried to print it. The top of my document still read "Results."

I'm really confused about what's going on and was wondering if there's a simple way to change the title of the quiz in storyline, or if not, how I can make the change to the report.html document work.

Hi Timothy, you are on the right track by trying to edit the report.html file but you have edited the wrong line in the code.

Changing the section as you have done only changes the title that appears at the top of your web browser - it does not change the name of the report.

You have to go into the code and change the script in the line that displays the report name. I have attached a copy of a report.htm file where I adjusted the report name.  Look for the following line in the report. It is closer to the bottom.

document.write("

Understanding and Preventing Bullying

");

Oh two other things - the report.html slide is overwritten each time you publish the course so if you plan to publish again make sure you keep a copy of your report.html someplace outside of the published output and then copy it back in to the content folder after you publish.

If  you want to change the title on the Results slide in the course itself, you can do this easily because Results is just a text box so you can change it to display anything you want it to say.

This is exactly what I need to do: I have made a "Take Notes" option on the topbar that opens a lightbox for people to journal and print their thoughts out later.

I still can't seem to find the revised line Nancy put on the report.html file....

Kinda lame on my part, but could you post a screen shot for me? It's driving me crazy!

Thanks for the guidance and yes, I managed to produce a report with my client's assessment title at the top. And I now have to remember edit report.html every time I publish it.

Come on! This is a ridiculousoversight - why is the quiz title not editable within Storyline? This should be corrected as a priority.

Hi there,  I know this is a pretty old discussion, but I was wondering if there is an update regarding how to change/edit the title/name of storyline360 quizzes? I have designed an e-learning with 3 different sections and each section have a different quiz. I went to check the code under report.html, but apparently, the code structure has changed and I'm getting lost when trying to locate the code description for each quiz under the script. Does anyone know how to achieve this?  I want to have different title names on each quiz

Thanks
