Storyline 2 essay questions prevent user submitting if they haven't added text


I am developing slides using the Essay type questions. We want to ensure the user types in text and therefore we want to prevent them from pushing the customized submit button (we are not using the Storyline built in submit button) if they have not typed anything in the text field.  Is this possible? Can someone please assist with this.

Hi Wendy

Thanks, that is exactly what I was looking for. 

Would you be able to assist me with another type in please. We have some slides with 2 or more type in areas on a slide.  The problem is that the results are not pulling through to Moodle.  Do you have any suggestions.  I have attached an example.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Leandra,

To report the value of individual text entries to your LMS that are not a built in question type you'd have to associated them with one. You could see the information here in terms of tracking a Storyline variable. This article is for Storyline 360, but similar steps would work for Storyline 2 and 1.
