Mass Change State of Trigger

Hi there,

It would be great if I knew how to apply a Change State of trigger to multiple (in one case, 19) objects on a layer.

The opposite direction for Change State of works like a charm. For example, one can change the state of a single object when all of a selected list of other objects (say those 19 objects) reach a specific state.

Is there a single trigger option for changing the state of 19 objects to one specific state, based one user clicking on 1 separate object?

I wanted to do exactly the same thing... Creating the 15 triggers (15 in my case) was pretty easy. However, I already had other 20 triggers so it made the list quite long and difficult to navigate and easily spot which ones I already had and which ones I am missing. It looks tidier and it's more helpful if we can have several triggers configured into a single one, as Chris says; just as when we trigger a state for a list of objects based on the state that they reach. Thanks!

Hey Monica and Chris, 

Thank you for reaching out and sharing what you would like to see! 

Consolidating triggers into a single one would be a new feature to Storyline. Here's a bit more about how we work to prioritize feature requests, and if you'd like to see this type of change I'd love to have you share more thoughts with our team as a feature request.

I'd like to second the value of this feature.

Here's an example of the kind of thing it would be really helpful for:

- When a variable changes, you want to be able to "turn on" (change state) of one object, and turn a bunch of other objects off.  For instance for various kinds of meters or performance visualizations.  

Has anyone put this in as a feature request yet?

 You have already created the states. Under certain circumstances this can work, Copy them and paste them on a layer. Set their initial state on that layer to the desired state. When the triggering event occurs, show that layer.

Check the sample, with two triggers.

Of, course this doesn't work for times when you have to hide all other layers.
