Resume Saved State and next/previous button triggers

Aug 04, 2022

I have set the slide to resume from saved state when a user returns to it, I also have triggers set up for Next buttons. Disable on timeline start and change state to normal when A B or C is visited. 

The issue I am having is when a user clicks previous to go back to a slide, it looks like it goes back to saved state as the flip cards have been revealed or a button has been clicked etc, but the next button will not appear unless they go through and click everything again. 

Is there a way when selecting resume saved state and the user clicks previous that the next button can have a condition that it will show automatically if its  a return to the slide not the initial visit.

I hope this make sense. Thanks in advance

Hi, Leith.

Walt's trigger suggestion above should work for your scenario. If you have the following:

  • Change the state of the Next button to disabled when the timeline starts.
  • Change the state of the Next button to normal when the timeline starts IF the buttons are visited.
  • Change the state of the Next button to normal when the state of all the buttons is visited.

The first trigger will execute when the user reaches the slide (Next will be disabled) for the first time. Once the buttons are visited, the third trigger will execute, allowing them to move to the next slide. If they return to the previous slide, then the second trigger will apply, as those buttons are already in the visited state.


If this is not your scenario, can you share a .story file so we can offer specific suggestions for your project?
