Use button to reset slide

Jun 06, 2020

I have a slide which is set to 'resume saved state' when revisiting.  I want to add a button which gives users the option to reset the slide to its initial state.  I can't find a trigger which would allow me to do this.  Am I missing something, or is it possible to do this another way?

Hi Jeremy, Storyline doesn't provide this functionality, however it may be possible for you to create the behaviour you are looking for. I say may, because it will depend on what function the slide currently serves.

If I was to do this, I would have the slide set to "Reset to initial state". I would then handle any resuming to saved state using variables. For example, if I wanted to remember the state of buttons, or if a question was answered correctly/incorrectly. 

I would then use those variable, on timeline start to determine the state of the slide.

In order to reset the slide, you would just need to reset those variables to their initial values.

I hope that makes some kind of sense.
