Captivate 2019 - Forced navigation (with multistate slide)

Hi - my first post! Hopefully I'm clear in my question...

 

Can I have two forced navigations (using the multistate slide feature in 2019, i.e., with NO Advanced Actions) within one course? 

 

My first forced navigation works perfectly. My second doesn't. I noticed when creating my "next" button on the second instance that Captivate wouldn't allow the duplicate name "content_completed" - so I had to name it "content_completed_2". Is that my issue? If so, what is the best practice?

 

Thanks! Mark

Each item in Captivate needs a unique name. Basic but very important. Are you new to Captivate?

You can have a Next button which is timed for the restof the project. In that case only one name is needed as identification. You can hide and show the button to your wishes.

thanks! I appreciate that. My understanding of the forced navigation in 2019 (using slides titled multistate) is that the naming convention is important, so I thought perhaps that was the issue in the forced navigation not working.

 

I will trouble shoot other issues with my slide; however, I did want to ensure that multiple forced navigation slides (using multistate) is possible.

...and I just realized my error with the ms_content portion of the forced navigation. I solved my own problem. Again thanks! 🙂

Naming is always important, not only for that simple branched example.
