How do I have a single timer span multiple pages?

Postby Jordan » Wed Mar 11, 2015 7:49 am

If I have a quiz that I want completed in 1 hour. How can I have a visual timer continue from a previous slide when the user loads the next page?

Hi Jordan,
You can do one of two things:

1. Store the time in a variable and then load that time into a new timer on the new page. http://screencast.com/t/HFXvmIup1Tr

2. Put the timer on the Master Page. In this case you'll need to use a Global Event to catch when the timer is done. http://screencast.com/t/thPrNe4p[/list]

More about Global Events here - http://help.smartbuilder.com/node/610 and here - http://help.smartbuilder.com/node/584
