I’d like information to be revealed when a button is pressed (up to three pieces of information).
I’ve got this working using a User setup, but I’d ideally like to avoid this, perhaps having the incremental count reset when they go back a page.
Any creative ideas how this can be solved? Perhaps move forward a screen when clicked to reveal the next piece of information?
Thanks in advance!
So you don’t want a user-specific column for this?
I’d rather avoid collecting User Data. I can see its benefits, but think that setting up a user could be quite challenging. Is it?
You don’t need to collect user data to have user-specific columns. Just make one column in your Data Editor, that’s it.
But if another person used the app, would it not use the same column, or does it reset for every new user/IP address?
It will be stored temporarily on that device, for that specific session, if you’re using a public app.
So (sorry for all the questions), if two people are playing on two different devices, their User columns will be different? If so, that’s perfect!
Do I add one in the data section? Any ideas how I reset the increment? Last question: Can I use mathematical symbols in the values section, such as 1+ or >1?
Yes, if they are playing on different devices that user-specific column will be different and then reset when they “clear” the session.
If you want to reset the increment, have a further math column with the math being “User-specific column * -1”, then use that for the “Reset button” with the increment value being that math column’s value. As it depends on a user-specific column, I think the reset value will be user-specific as well.
What is your use case for “1+” or “>1”?
And no worries, we would learn many things as well by helping others, so just ask.
Quick question: Do I have to do anything special to the User-specific column so that it resets for individual users?
No, you just have to create a user-specific column and it will handle the rest.
Hmm. I’ve added the User Specific column in Data:
But when I try to select it for the increment, it cannot be found:
Right, solved that problem - (User Specific on the wrong sheet in Data), but it will not work. I have it so that Each Hint is revealed as the Hint button is pressed (So HINTS are shown when User Specific is x, and the HINTS button increments by 1 each time), but it is just not playing ball. With this set up, no hints are shown at all!
Solved AGAIN - Show hints is pointing to the wrong column!
Okay If you face any other problems feel free to let me know.
Thank you! I also came up with a happy solution to someone pressing the RESET button too many times. I only show it when the Increment is at 5, so it can only be pressed once. Happy days!
