What Am I Missing Here? Changing State Using Variable
Nov 09, 2020
I cannot figure out why, when the user clicks a house icon to return to a list of questions on another slide, the state of a shape is not turning green for Section Visited. My trigger looks clean enough:
This is what I'd like to happen:
1. User clicks House icon on slide 5 to return to questions ("home") on slide 3.
2. When user clicks House icon on slide 5, first trigger changes Section Visited variable to True and then jumps to slide 3.
3. To indicate the section on slide 5 has been visited, a shape on slide 3 turns green.
When the user completes step 1, the jumping happens and the variable changes to True (step 2), BUT the state doesn't change (step 3).
Maybe I don't understand how all this works, but it'd be great to have a "WHEN Variable XXX changes to False" or "WHEN Variable XXX changes to True" option; I think I might need to add an additional WHEN for time - "When timeline starts on this slide" - but that seems to be an extra step when the variable should be the only thing that controls the changing of the shape's state, ya know? I shouldn't need to add another layer; it should occur because the variable is XXX not because of another time layer. Again, I could be misunderstanding what's going on.
What else do I need to do? Thanks for any insight.
