Storyline 2 Trigger Help

Hello,

I feel like I'm missing something on a slide which is not advancing the way I want it it.

I have a slide with three text boxes (tb1, tb2, tb3) - tb1 and tb3 have a built-in visited states because these are correct. When a user clicks each tb, they are brought each to their custom feedback slides (fb1, fb2, fb3) and each of these slides has a GO BACK button to bring them back to the first slide. 

Here's my issue, when tb1 and tb2 are "visited", I want the slide to advance to the next scene. I have a trigger for that, but it's not working all the time. Does this have anything to do with the order of triggers or states?

The easiest thing I can think of is to attach actions to the GO BACK buttons that look to see if both tb1 & tb2 are displaying their visited states. This way it wouldn't jump right to the next scene until after the 2nd one you click is closed. Also make sure you reset the slide for each time it's visited.

Thanks Daniel - how can I add a trigger to the GO BACK buttons (on each of the feedback slides) to tb1 and tb2? Those text boxes are on different slides. The action that I have on the GO BACK buttons is to just go back to the appropriate slide to choose another response.

Ideally, once tb1 and tb3 are "visited", I would like the slide to advance to the next slide. I'm confused about resetting the slide for each time it's visited, because I set the slide to resume saved state.

So, if I choose tb1 (which is correct), I go to fb2. When I click GO BACK, I go back to the original slide.

If I choose tb2 (wrong), I go to fb2. The GO BACK button will go back to the original slide.

In this scenario, if I choose tb3, it just advances to the next slide and doesn't go to fb3 even though I have a trigger for that.

It will be easier to help if you could share your .story file here.

Thanks Michael, I duplicated what you did, and the flow worked as I wanted it to, but now my issue is that I disabled the NEXT button when the timeline starts until TB1 and TB3 variables change to 'true' and their state is 'visited'. Once those things happen, I would like learners to advance in the course by clicking the NEXT button. Would you take a look at what I built and let me know if I'm on the right track? I see when I test it out that the button is disabled, but doesn't go back to a normal state when the variables change.

 

Thanks!
