Inserting Engage on a layer

I have an engage interaction that I would like to insert on a layer.  Is this possible to do?  I've tried it and and looks like it worked but when I preview or publish the course the engage interaction does not work.  I inserted the Engage interaction by going to the layer and inserting it as a flash file.  did I do something wrong?

Hi Julie,

Just curious, why were you inserting the Engage interaction as a Flash file? Looks like you can simply import the Engage interaction into Storyline and add this to a slide layer. 

Take a look:

Engage in a Layer

To do this, click on the Articulate "A" menu in the top left-hand corner of Storyline. Then, click on "Import" and "Engage". Select the interaction you want to use. When this interaction imports, it may place the interaction in a new scene. Select the interaction in that scene and either copy or cut the interaction (CTRL+X to cut, CTRL+C to copy). Then, navigate to the slide that has your layer and paste the interaction into that layer (be sure you have the layer selected and not the main slide - you can paste by pressing CTRL+V). Your Engage interaction should run in the layer now. 

Please keep in mind that you'll want to make sure you publish and upload your content to a web server or LMS for best results while viewing the interaction. Viewing it locally may cause problems. If you view published Storyline content on your local hard drive or send it to someone else to view on their local hard drive, you'll encounter security restrictions from the computer, web browser, Flash Player, and network that'll cause various features of your content to fail.

To properly test your published content and share it with others, upload it to the environment for which it was published. Please review the following article for details:
I'm also attaching my example file, just in case you want to see how I set it up.
Let me know if you have any questions.
