Hey Sagar,

Thanks but can you please explain what was wrong with my story file.

This will help me to identify error in my development, I still can not use this file as is in my production. I also tried to check all possible changes in you file but could not find it, I know this is minor issue but will you provide light on this?

Hi Nilesh,

I'd agree with Sagar here - if you want users to revisit the slides and see how they previously answered you'll need to use the slide property setting of resume saved state (automatically decide should work too - but I personally like to set it as I wish instead of letting Storyline determine what to do). You can read more about slide property settings here.

Hi Ashley, I have a question regarding this problem.  I am working on a project-which includes an exercise for review.   I have the slide property  settings as "Reset to Initial" state.    My logic is users can come back and review as many times as they want.  However each time they come in, they will not see their past options.  It works very nicely for the first time, but for the second time around, the whole settings freeze.  None of the buttons work.  However I tried it in a miniature scale, and it worked well.  Do you have any suggestions?  Thanks  


PS: here is the screenshot of the settings

HI Indrani,

As Sagar said you'll want to use "automatically decide" or "resume saved state". Using a slide property of "reset to initial state" will cause the users' answer to be reset and the question will show as incorrect. 

You mentioned trying it tin a miniature scale, do you mean that the course was much smaller? How large was your main course where you're trying to accomplish this set up? Where are you testing the course?

If you're able to share the larger course with us, we can take a look at what is happening and offer some more specific ideas!

Thanks, Ashley & Sagar.  I am in the process of  making the revisiting setting as ""Automatically Decide".  My course has 3 modules, but they are not large.  I make the changes, and republish and see what happens.  Also in the Slide Properties Window- do I need to change any settings for Player Features

Thank you  again !!

Hi Indrani,

Are you trying to have folks review it or retake it? It would help to see your .story file - but if you can't share that  and you'd like them to retake the quiz you'll need to use the built in "retry" button with it's automatically created triggers. Trying to trigger that on your own could be the cause of the problem. 

Ultimately I also want to know how many ounces of tequila are in the margarita...asking for a friend. 😉

Hi Ashley,

For your friend '1.5' is the correct answer.  :)

Now to the other questions, I would like  folks to review this quiz, and then review it as many times they need to.  I will be happy to send you the original file.  Is there a secured site where I can upload it?  So from the main interface, you can select any categories, a)beverage, b)Appetizer c)Entrée .  In this case, if you select Pineapple Margarita from the Beverage menu-then select Review from the clipboard.....


Please let me know if I can send you the file privately? thanks again
