Saved State and the Rewind/Playback button logic
May 20, 2014
I have been pretty vocal about this issue in an old post and figured that I will make a new post to maybe get some traction from other Storyline users.
Can someone please tell me the logic of why when slides are marked 'Resume in the Saved State' that the playback button does not work? Who at Articulate thought this was a good idea and how did this get the okay to get developed. Essentially, what you have when the slides are set up like this is a broken button for the learner to become frustrated with all of the time.
I have read the documentation on how the playback button works and for you to tell me that that it works dependently with the state of the slide is ridiculous. Why can't the learner go back to a slide in the saved state and pick up where they left off and also replay the slide if they missed information? These need and should have always been independent. The fact that you have allowed a broken button to remain on screen and continue to tell the users of your software that this is how this was meant to function is unbelievable and a slap in the face.
I have submitted an enhancement request and will continue to be a thorn in your side until this is fixed because this should have been done a long time ago. I don't know when the next update will be, apparently Articulate doesn't have a road map of issues they would like to fix, but hopefully it will be soon. If not, then the people who run this software company are clueless. I would like other users to get on board with this and maybe this will be addressed in the near future. Fingers crossed.
