Is there a way to lock sections so I can send my course out as a demo?

Jan 11, 2016

Hello Experts,

I have a course with four modules but I want to be able to market the course to my subscribers so they can only access Module 1...but they will still see the navigation of the rest of the modules but they won't be able to click and view them.

Is there any easy way to do this...without having to deleting entire modules?

I have attached a screenshot also to show you the structure.

Thank you

Hi Graham,

mmmhhh.... I must admit I never use the built in menu provided by Storyline, I create bespoke menu's and so to fix that issue I would simply change the initial state to disabled, if you have a variable triggering the state to changed from disabled to normal then I would place a mask (transparent box) over the top of the menu items.

In your case you will need to go into the player properties click on menu then all items in your menu will be listed here select the menu items you would like to disable then click on the cog for settings and in the Navigation Restriction drop down menu choose your setting here.

I've not had chance to test it but seems like a straight forward answer hope this helps.
