Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Even though I am using the publish settings for the LMS that also allow the Viewer app, when that gets launched on the iPad it has a Play button rather than a Launch button and the viewer app does not get called as it should. Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 It does work with our LMS to download on the Viewer app, but ONLY if I go in and change the code in the manifest to start with story.html instead of the lms one, which means that even from a laptop our LMS will not track it because it is calling a different file rather than the LMS one. I can’t seem to figure out where the code is to change the play button to a launch button, nor should I have to if the publish settings has a check box for it already.
I ran some more tests and here’s what I have concluded.
1. If I set publish settings to LMS – Include HTML5 output – Use Articulate Mobile Player on iPad – Allow downloading for offline viewing (see screenshot below) (This is the one that I need this one to work – but it doesn’t)
o On the laptop in the browser it will launch the module in the browser immediately when clicked on and start to play it.
o The LMS does track the project.
o On the iPad I get a page with a button that says Play – which then opens in the browser and not the Viewer app (this is incorrect as it should say Launch so the Viewer app gets launched)
o The LMS does track the project
2. If I set publish settings as above but go into the imsmanifest.xml file and change the starting page from index_lms.html to story.html
o On laptop in the browser it will launch the module in the browser immediately when clicked on and start to play it.
o The LMS does NOT track the project.
o On the iPad I get a page with a button that says Launch – which then opens in the Viewer app
o The LMS does NOT track the project
I sincerely appreciate any assistance you can give me regarding this issue. I am in the process of evaluating this product and will not get the approval from my manager to make the purchase if I cannot get it to work on both the laptop and iPad without having to make multiple versions or go into change code.
