Menu not marking sections completed - Storyline 1

We are working on a course that has a number of demonstrations/simulations incorporated into the course.  All of the demos/sims are in their own scenes and the course navigates to/from the scenes as the user navigates through the course.  

One thing that we have noticed is that the menu is not marking the menu item for these demos/sims as completed (changes the color of the menu option) when the users completes them. I  am curious if this is because the demos/sims are in a different scene and we may need a start and end page in the body of the course to activate the menu changes.

Hello Shawn!

Please make sure you sure working locally as described here.

I have tested a file with several scenes, and the slides are becoming grayed out in the Menu after viewing. 

Would you be able to attach your .story file here for us to look at?

You can also set the Menu to Auto Collapse the scenes as the user completes in the Player options.

Hi Emily,

The modules is published and posted to one of our webservers. I see the behavior both on my computer and on the server.  When you did your testing, did you include any demonstrations/simulations made with Storyline? Those are the sections we see not being marked as completed.  I am not sure if the fact that we have the demos/sims in their own scenes and having them called from the content pages is having any impact on the completion tracking in the menu.  I was going to try adding a couple of pages within the content to introduce and summarize the simulations so that there was something for the menu to see. 

Unfortunately due to the content of the training being company information I cannot provide a copy of the story.

Good tip on the menu settings we will certainly test that. 

Thank you for your reply.

Hello Shawn!

I did add a scene with a record screen slide. It was the only slide within the scene, and it did mark complete in the menu after it was done.

As long as the slide directs to another slide, or scene at the end, whether automatically or clicked by user, it should register complete.

You can submit the file here, and add ::emily:: to the start of the case reason if you would like us to look at the file privately.

Hi Emily,

I think I finally figured it out. The problem was because of the way the developer I am working with set up the demos. As it turns out each demo tied right to another which seems to account for the issue we were seeing with the menu. When I set up an introduction and summary page for each demo/simulation the problem went away.

It's a good day, I learned something new.

Thanks for the help
