Simulating a "click and drag"
Jul 07, 2020
I created a software simulation using Storyline. The feedback from the pilot testing is that the slide where there is a click and drag just doesn't function well.
In the software, there is a portion where the user must click on a day of the week and then drag to highlight the days next to that day (for example, clicking on Monday and then dragging to highlight Tuesday and Wednesday).
Storyline simulations do not caption this, so in the training, the user has to click on Monday and then the software simulation video plays showing the other days being highlighted.
Because the training tells users to click and drag, that's what they are trying to do in the Storyline try mode. However, because that function is not possible it is just moving the screen around (on iPad) or of course, nothing is happening on screen (desktop).
I need a better solution for this portion of the try mode! What can I do to simulate the action of "click and drag"?
