Quiz Timer

Hi is it possible to pause the quiz Timer, as sometimes there is an interruption in training, Phone, door, etc. The quiz has been designed in such a way that the trainee has 20 minutes to answer 60 questions, there needs to be no distractions or time will be lost, and not able to complete, hence the pause button for the timer.


Thank You

I don't believe there is yet a way to pause the default quiz timer.  If this is something that you'd like to see, I'd add a feature request.

I believe your only alternative is to build your own custom timer.  This thread might help get you started if you want to pursue this:  https://community.articulate.com/discussions/articulate-storyline/default-timer-in-storyline-360

Hey, John!  I did something similar once for a board game that I built, complete with rolling dice.  Except in that case, learners had three minutes to answer each individual quiz question.

I'm not a JavaScript programmer but I found the coding for that here in the forums from some great folks.  It wasn't hard at all to implement at all.

Hopefully, one of the JavaScript gurus here comes in and shares what to do--or you can search past posts--or follow the links I sent previously.

I'd give it a try.  I find if I push myself a little in each project I do, and try to go past my comfort zone a little, you end up learning a lot bit by bit.
