Mark an object as completed (using a green check mark)

Hi all,

At one point in a course I'm creating, the learner is asked to explore 4 different objects. When they click on one, they learn about it, one at a time (on different slides). When they've completed one and click back to the screen where they're all listed, I'd like a green check mark to appear next to the one(s) they've completed until they've explored all 4. So, until all 4 have a green check mark next to them.

I created a check mark next to each object on the main slide and set the initial state to hidden. But, I cannot figure out how to change the state of the green check to normal once the learner click has explored one and gets back to the main slide where all 4 are listed. I know I learned how to do this, but my memory is failing me. 

I've attached a screen shot. Basically, 2.2 is the main slide. There will be a button to click from 2.7, 2.8, 2.9, and 2.10 to get back to 2.2. When they do, I'd like the green check to appear so they don't click the same one twice.

I appreciate any guidance on how to get this to function the way I see it in my mind.

This would include triggers with variables! For example, you would need a trigger that says "Change state of Green Checkmark to Normal when Timeline Starts on This Slide if "conditions" are equal to (blank). 

I'm happy to offer a more specific solution if you want to share your file! You can do so by using the "add attachment" button in this discussion.

Yes, Lauren has offered the solution to your challenge. I'll add additional, if it helps you.

If I'm following your image correctly, first, create 4 true/false variables; one for each of the items listed on 2.2, such as item 1, item 2, item 3, item 4, with default to false. On 2.7, you could either have the variable for that item change to true when the timeline starts, or when the user clicks the button to return to 2.2. Repeat this for the other three items; 2.8, 2.10, and 2.9.

For your 4 items listed on 2.2, it would be cleaner to have item 1, 2, 3, and 4 each have a state added as "complete", for example, and in this complete state, add the green check mark. Set the initial state to normal for each item. Then, on 2.2 have a trigger for each item listed state to change to "complete" when the timeline starts on the condition that the variable for that item is true.  Then, when 2.7, 2.8, 2.9, and 2.10 have all been visited, then the items on 2.2 would all reflect "complete". Then, you'd have the user advance however you want them to. If you're using the next/prev buttons, or custom buttons, you'd simply add triggers to advance to the next slide, scene, etc, on the condition, item 1, 2 3, and 4 are true.

Hope that helps!
