Is/Can Text Entered Into Data Entry Fields "preserved"

Jan 27, 2014

Hi all,

For some reason the search function on this site is not working for me. 

Anyway, I was wondering... can the text that learners enter into a Data Entry Field in Storyline be saved so that those responses can be reviewed later?  I'm guessing this would be an LMS function, but am not sure.

Any insight on this is appreciated.

Hi there Frank!

First, I apologize for the trouble with the search function here - we all have had a battle with it at one time, or another ;)

We're hoping that the future version of ELH will be easier to use.

In the meantime, I would recommend using Google to narrow down your search for the community site.

Here's an example of a string I would use:

"Storyline free examples"

The important part I've marked in bold - that will ensure that all the results provided are for this community.

Now, for your question, it's actually a pretty poplar topic. The answers submitted in those text fields are saved to a variable. You can, however, retrieve those variables through an LMS > Articulate Support - Reporting Storyline variables to an LMS

If you're using an LMS, that's definitely the route I would recommend for this :)

I hope this helps!
