Linking to external systems

Mar 04, 2014

We have inherited a number of partially completed courses built in Storyline. One of them is a Code of Conduct course. At the end of the course the user has to agree to abide by the Code of Conduct. Their answer needs to be communicated to an HR system as part of their employee record.  I am thinking the only way to do this is by having a link inside the Storyline PowerPoint slide that takes them to that part of their HR intranet.  Is there another way (e.g. send an autoformatted email or set a persistent variable in the LMS?)

Hi Jason,

There is an email trigger, where you could set it up to send an email to a particular person - but it can work a bit inconsistently depending on the tighter security restrictions in modern web browsers, operating systems, and anti-virus programs which can also interfere with this process.

If you have access to an LMS, that would be the best option and I'd include a final slide with a quiz question - maybe a freeform pick one, where you set a shape that says "I've completed the course and would like to send my results to HR" - you'll also want to include a Results slide and use that as your tracking method to your LMS. This setup is described in this support article.
