Importing Questions. Advanced Features?
Jun 21, 2019
As a one week old newbie, I want to thank everyone in this amazing community for all your help! I've come a long way. But please bear with me for a bit longer... I still have 101 questions. I hope to soon be able to give back. :)
I am trying to find ways to automate as many content creation steps as possible. One feature that I am trying to utilize is the Questions Importer. Using Google Sheets allows SMEs to enter questions. This has the potential of working out except for one big problem. One of my requirements is that each question must be accompanied by a reference URL back to the learning content related to the question in Confluence. Unfortunately, the import parser sees the backslashes in HTML as the beginning of a comment and truncates any text beyond the two slashes.
I have also tried using the localization option, but I cannot embed a working hyperlink. It URL can be added this way, but it appears as text only.
There are other apparent limitations with importing graded questions:
- I cannot include a Title line to a question.
- I cannot assign a hyperlink to button (or just the hyperlink). This is the most important question.
- Maximum of ten answers in a multiple choice.
- Cannot align a large number of answers into two columns. I can do this manually, but Storyline automatically reconfigures to a single column when the list is edited. :(
Thank you for your advice.
