Pause a Quiz

Hi everyone!

I am trying to develop a timed assessment, but we need the assessment taker to be able to pause the assessment and return to it. Is there a way to do this within Storyline? I know you can put an option to pause the timeline, but I wasn't sure whether or not pausing the timeline would also pause the quizzing timer.

Thanks!

Good morning Daniela!

I'm sorry, but as far as I know, there isn't a way to pause a built-in quiz timer in Storyline. You could use a custom timer that will automatically advance your slides and pause that with a layer, but doing the same will not work with the default quiz timer. 

If you'd like to see something like this in a future release of the software, please consider submitting a feature request with our development team.

If you do find a way to create a pause option for the quiz timer, I'd certainly like to hear about it!

Thanks and good luck with the project!
