Can a link in a CP 2019 non-LMS module open another module at a specific slide?

I'm creating a course with CP 2019 that will have 4 modules, each a separate CP file. The published output will be HTML5, non-responsive, and will be accessed from a Chrome web page (rather than an LMS). I'm going to put links in some of the modules that open other modules in the course. Is there a way to create a link that can open a module in a separate window/tab and jump to a particular slide or section in that module?

 

I learned that I can put a search parameter on the end of the calling link (e.g something like index.html?slide=10) and then have Javascript functions built into the other modules that check the incoming link for such data and act on it. I don't have any more information about how to set that up. Can anyone point me to or explain how to do this, or suggest a different method?

One solution is presented here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/captivate/is-it-possible-to-link-a-specific-slide-in-a-project-from-a...

Pretty old thread, but I think it should still work with recent Captivate versions.

That looks good. I'll give it a try in the next few days. Thanks!
