User notes that they can print and email

Hi all. I built a course earlier this year that contains a "notes" function to allow users to take a moment to reflect and type their thoughts on certain questions. This is used in place of a typical multiple response/choice type question. Thought I'd share it here with you!

Here are the files:

Thanks for your ideas, James.

1 - No, there are no pop-up blockers (tried 3 different browsers on 2 different machines).

2 - Not a developper, sorry. But I've run an LMS debug report and I cann't seem to find any issues.

3 - Good point, I've not thought of that. But the problem happens even when the notes are empty or with just 'test' written in each of the 7 slides (way less than 2000 characters, including the titles, in total).

 Do you think I could have missed something in the LMS debug report?

Hi everyone,

Thanks Stephanie for sharing this wonderful work. This was more than 5 years ago and I still find it very useful. I wanted to implement the technique in Storyline and import to my Articulte Rise as a SL block. However, the email and print functions are not working after I embedded in my Rise project.

Can someone please tell me if this is possible in Rise or not? I have spent several hours working on the project and I need to know if it's possible to embed the technique in Rise.

Thank you.

I need help with this, please!

I have decided to implement my notes in Storyline 360 instead of embedding in Rise block. However, when I publish the project nothing happens on clicking the email and printer icons. When I publish with the email icon alone it works. I don't know why it is behaving this way. Please see the attached .Story file for more information.

Hi Stephanie, 

Were you able to test this on mobile? I tried testing this on Safari on my iPhone but I can’t get it to work… When I hit the send email button, nothing’s happening.

PS. I've embedded this Storyline to a Rise block and I'm looking at it on a mobile device. I don't know if that's an issue.
