Storyline 2 - Complete menu chapters before enabling next button to continue


I have created an storyline 2 module designed to introduce learners to a 6 stage model. I have the model in its own scene. The learner can click on each of the stages of the module to take the them to the scene with the information on that stage. They the complete the scene for that stage the click a close button to return to the model.

I require the learner to complete each of the 6 stages in any order before progressing forward to complete the rest of the module.

How do I set the module so it enables to next button once all of the 6 stages have been clicked and viewed?

Also is there a way I can indicate to the learner which stages they have completed i.e. highlight or tick?

Hi Megan,

Whenever you create a course that requires showing progress on a menu slide, states and variables start to come into play! Here's a few steps to get you going:

  1. Set the Menu Next button to Disabled when the timeline starts.
  2. Then, add true/false variables initially set to False at the end of each stage to switch when the learner reaches the end.
  3. Next, you can also add Visited and Completed states to each of your menu buttons, and change the state of each button to Completed if the variable is True.
  4. And finally, add a Change state of Next button to Normal on the condition that all variables are true.
