In this week’s post, get ready to dive into another Storyline 360 troubleshooting adventure! I’ll unveil a simple tip that gives you control over your users’ video experience. Say goodbye to fast-forwarding and rewinding on the first watch!
The idea for today’s post comes from a question on the eLearning Heroes forum! The person wanted to set up Storyline 360 to allow a learner to fast forward and rewind a video, but only after they viewed it once.

The second trigger changes the VidBlock variable to True when the media (e.g., the video) completes.
