Using branching scenario to show consequences of missing process steps

Hi all,

Looking for help with some branching logic :-)

I am trying to create a branching scenario where the learner is given a choice between following a procedure step-by-step, or skipping steps. At the end, I want to demonstrate to the learner the consequences of having missed those steps. Can anyone think of a way to do this without creating duplicate branches with custom endings, such as through the use of scoring?

Say for example the process has 10 steps. I want to tempt the learner to go from step 2 to step 4 or from step 3 to step 5. That means 3 possible endings, but it gets a lot more complicated if I have provide opportunities to skip multiple steps. Is there a way to keep jumping back to a single right path, or do I need to duplicate the branches?

Many thanks, Isobel

Hi Isobel,

I've been trying to ponder over this over the weekend but I can't think of another way without duplicating branches/steps but maybe someone in the community may have other ideas  and their input would be much appreciated.


Thanks for your reply BV52. I ended up duplicating the branches and the editing process got more and more confusing the more I duplicated! Where is the best place to report bugs and make suggestions for improvement?

Best regards, Isobel

Hi Isobel,

You can do both here in the forums. For bug reports you post it in the bug reports forum please take note of the information that is requested on that forum. For feature requests you can post it in the Feature Request forum. In order for your feature request to attract as much interest as possible make sure it follows the below guidelines:


  1. It is clear from every perspective how the feature will work. We recommend describing the feature with one or more user stories, for instance “As an author I want it to be possible to pick between different effects for the check answer animation so that the learner will see a variety of effects and also I can adapt the effects to my target audience(I’ll be using pink unicorns which works really well for both my target audience which are 4 year old girls and venture capitalists)”

  2. If the feature can be illustrated with images or videos it always helps

  3. Make it clear what content types this is relevant for, and or if this is a new content type
