Running Total


I have one question relating to obtaining data from several users. Is there any way in which you can have a running total under one field in the table? For example I would like to add 1 each time the user clicks a button in Storyline, I do not wish to add another row, only update the previous row by 1 so I have a total number of times this button has been clicked?

I think what you are doing here is great by the way! Thanks for your help!

Hello. Yes, just update the field with a new value. If everything is done properly, calling CloudSet on the same field for the same student overrides the previous value, not adds a new row to the table. Just like in the demo every time you click on the markers 1-4, the field value is updated.

Thanks. Sorry i should of made it clear that this would be for multiple users. I basically wish to override one value in a field with multiple users OR have a running total. For example the trigger would take the previous value in the field and add 1:

Row1: 1
Row2: 2
Row3: 3

This would allow us to track the total amount of times a particular object is clicked within storyline. I hope this makes sense!

Each user can access only his/her own data, this was done to ensure data security. However, you can request this custom feature through premium widgets that will be available only to you (your organization).

Hi again. We had an internal discussion and concluded that it would be nice to add a feature like you described to the basic Data Cloud widget. You should see it later this week or early next week. Thank you for the suggestion!
