Resetting "total" points & a slide
Jan 05, 2022
Hello everyone! I'm hoping someone can help me out with a dilemma in Storyline 360. I'm working on a virtual training with multiple activities. Most of the activities have click and drag features or completion features that don't affect each other. My main issue is that I have 2 results activities. I was able to get the first one to work and reset itself if the person doesn't pass. My second activity which is a jeopardy game, doesn't want to reset itself if the person has to replay it.
The points are added to the "Total" and it's displayed at the bottom of the slide (pic attached). Also, once a box is clicked, it will change its state to "disabled". Once the person finishes all the clues, then it goes to the results page. As I mentioned, the results page will not reset the original slide when the person clicks "retry". I tried changing the slide settings to reset when you return, but then the boxes do not change their states to disabled and you don't know which questions you've answered (each question is its own slide and not a layer).
I tried having the user go to a new slide and circle back to the jeopardy slide, but that doesn't reset it either. My last attempt was to copy the whole activity and if you failed, you would go to the new activity, but it would look the same. The problem was that the "Total" at the bottom kept the points from the previous group.
Hopefully, that all makes sense to you and someone has a solution. I'm sorry, but I can't upload the game because of proprietary info, but if you want to talk offline, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for your time!
