"Prompt to Resume" function in Storyline 360

Hello,

I have a Storyline 360 (current version) project and I do have the "Prompt to Resume" setting enabled, but the project is not prompting people when they return to the course.

Also I tried to  "reset to initial state" of every slide, this did not work.

I have the project on an unsecured server for testing, would that affect the "Prompt to Resume" function? or does that only work in a LMS environment?

Thanks,
Tom

Hey there, Tom.  In an LMS, the resume feature uses the LMS to hold onto the data that tells Storyline where to start the course when it's revisited.  In a web environment, we use cookies in Flash, and web storage with HTML5 (localStorage).  Here's some techy detail on that:

Do you know if your server would use that protocol?  If you include Flash output in your publishing, you can take advantage of Tempshare for testing your content, including the resume functionality.

I have the Resume Prompt active in my course. Each time I have tested it in the LMS the Resume dialog box comes up, but when I click on Resume it always takes me to the same slide no matter how far past that slide I've gotten in the course.

I saw in your post that In an LMS, the resume feature uses the LMS to hold onto the data that tells Storyline where to start the course when it's revisited. Is there something that has to be done on the LMS side to update where a returning user will start from if they have to come back to the course multiple times or does something have to be done on the Storyline side?

I have the most current version of Storyline 360 and our LMS is Success Factors.
