Thank you Alyssa,

I have followed the steps in the article. However, I am not using a quiz to trigger the complete course trigger. I am using a variable.

When the timeline starts

execute javascript (checks current date against expiry date)

If variable course expired = true then

Complete course = Incomplete /Failed

If variable course expired = False then

Complete course = Complete /Passed

The variable code is working correctly but when Course expired = true the continue button in Rise is still showing.

Thanks, Sharon! 

I took a look into your file, and after reviewing your triggers, I think this interaction is working as intended in Rise 360.

The key is, a complete course trigger will always enable the Rise continue button, no matter if it's considered incomplete/failed or completed/passed.

If you do not want the continue button to be enabled when the expired layer is showing, remove the complete course trigger from that layer. 

Watch this 2 minute video to see how I tested your file and how it works in a Rise sample course. 

After watching the video, let me know if my explanation answers your question!

I'm having this issue of the Continue button in Rise not activating after the Storyline block above has completed. There are two instances of this in my Rise course with different SL blocks. I have had success with many Rise courses incorporating SL blocks and the Continue button but now it's not working. Wondering if something has changed recently in Rise.

Hi, Alice! Thanks for the sample file - super helpful. When I add it as a Storyline block to my sample course, I'm seeing the continue block unlock immediately when the Storyline block comes into view. I expect this to happen since the Storyline interaction is completed as soon as the timeline starts on the slide.

I still have to click the continue block to move forward, but I'm not being blocked due to not having completed the block above. Does that match what you're seeing?

The key is that Rise has to be in Preview for that functionality to work. I do not think that was clear in any documentation.
