Test Results - Printing

Mar 27, 2014

I'm having trouble getting my quiz results to print from Storyline. Have all the properties set properly. Made sure the default printer is active. I assume, maybe a mistake, that since you can check functionality in Publish Preview mode, you should be able to check the print feature as well. What am I missing?. Any thoughts?

Hi Manfred and welcome to Heroes! 

Are you testing the published version by loading it into the intended environment? You'll want to test as described here, as testing locally could cause elements of your content to fail. Also, the print results will generate a new HTML page where the results will be displayed in a printable format, but then you'll need to actually select print from the browser options, it won't happen automatically.

Hi Ashley,

I'm currently testing the training program locally on my PC (Windows 8 if that's important on a Lenovo Ideapad). Under the Publish tab, I selected Preview, then Entire Contents. This previews the content including the quiz so I can check timing and functionality. The quiz is the last thing that happens. I set the results page up so you can review the test and then print the results, each with distinct buttons. The review button works great. When I hit the print button, nothing happens.

What I was hoping would happen is that the script simply send the results page to the defaulted printer.

I have other related questions, but for now, this is really important. Note that it is my intention to develop and sell individual, subject specific CDs that I'm hoping will be able to print results without a major configuration effort.

Hi Manfred,

When previewing the content you won't be able to use the "print results" feature. You'll want to test this within the intended publish environment, and if you're not ready to load it to your web server or LMS yet, the article I previously linked to included some free web testing options or if you're publishing to LMS you could use SCORM Cloud which is an industry standard testing method for SCORM content, or if you're publishing for CD, you'll want to then test that version locally once published.

I'm not sure if you've set up some specific Javascript, but that is not something I'd be able to support - but there are a few Javascript best practices detailed here.
