Interactive action plan: choose any five tasks

Jan 07, 2019

I'm trying to create an interactive action plan in which learners can select any five tasks from a list. These actions then populate an action plan that appears on the next slide when learners click a button.

My problem is finding a way to prevent learners from proceeding to the next slide if they haven't chosen five tasks from the list. I tried to control this by using number variables that increase each time a task is clicked on and then adding a layer that appears if they try to proceed if the number variable doesn't equal 5. However, this doesn't work if learners select and then deselect one of the options: the variable remains changed but the task isn't selected.

Can anyone suggest a way to achieve what I'd like?

Hi Katherine! You came to the right place for help. 😊

I mocked up a quick example that I hope fits with the design you had in mind. The key here is to increase the number variable when the user clicks the Submit button, not when the learner is clicking on each task.

Check out this quick video that explains exactly how to set this up. Let me know what you think!
