Using a Dial as a Dashboard Tool

I designed a course that uses a dial as a dashboard. Moving the dial moves the user to 4 different topics. When the user returns to the dashboard they move the dial to explore the next topic. Here are my 2 problems:

1. When the user returns to the dial, audio continues if they select to move on before it finishes.

2. After user has visited all four topics, I want the NEXT button to take them to end of course slide.

Any ideas how to fix either of these. Thanks.

Hi, Linda!

Thank you for reaching out! If you can share your .story file, it might be easier for your fellow community members to offer design suggestions.

Here are a few to get you started:

  • If you are using layers to display the different topics, you can create T/F variables that start as false and then are set to true once the layer is visited.

  • Your Next button can start disabled on your base layer, and you can create a trigger to enable it once all four variables are true.
  • You can also change the layer properties to pause the timeline of the base layer. This will prevent the audio from playing when they choose a different topic.
