Where is Tracking Information stored in Storyline

We are testing one of storyline courses on NON LMS environment, the developer has asked us to show in the published folder where the tracking information like ‘incomplete /completed’ and ‘’number of slides viewed is stored. We have enabled it in the tracking function before publish.

Does anyone know where this information is stored?

Hi, this site and it's Flash Cookie viewer software may help:  http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/flash_cookies_view.html

I'm using Windows 7 and Flash cookies with that are at: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects and then in some folders after that.

For example, I just published something locally and played it back and the full path to the cookie was this:

C:\Users\Gerry\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\DTE7JZTN\localhost\My Storyline Projects\Development Planning output\story.swf\5cVk7gnFZ1E.sol

To view the Storyline cookie itself, I used the viewer software from the above site and highlighted the cookie URL and then turned on Options > Display Mode > Hex Dump

What it all means beyond this, I don't have a clue.  Too techie for me and not something I'll ever probably look at again . . .

I have a somewhat different question! We have an LMS where the courses are being launched from. I've set the courses to Prompt to Resume if the person leaves the course in the middle and comes back another time. If I want the learner to receive a completion after viewing ALL slides in a course, can the person come back to where they left off, view the rest of the slides, then get a completion? Or do they have to view all slides in one go to receive a completion? Thanks!

Hi CurlyQT, 

It should track that they've viewed the slides and count towards the total. Are you running into an issue where that's not working? Have you look at testing it at SCORM Cloud? It's a standard for LMS testing and this article will walk you through the ways in which you can test there.
