Distractions abound this time of year and it's hard to keep focused on the task at hand. So, I promise, Viewlet Authors, to keep this short.

Spring is here, so what better time to freshen up your Viewlets! One way is by standardizing project elements throughout an ENTIRE project in just a few steps. Here's just one example...

Let's take a quick look at how you can reinforce global properties to all project question slides (even ones with custom settings) in ViewletBuilder and ViewletQuiz (all without having to hire an extra cleaning crew). Are you ready?

Steps to Force Global Properties to All Question Slides

1. Select Project > Project Properties from the menu.

2. Select Question Options > Scoring tab (ViewletBuilder8/ViewletQuiz5) or Scoring Options > Question tab (ViewletBuilder7/ViewletQuiz4).

3. Modify settings for Points, Attempts, Reanswer and Time as needed.

4. In the Project Settings area, select the Force them to use the above settings option.
NOTE: You will only see this feature IF one or more of your question slides is set to override global options.

5. Click OK to force these global question properties to all question slides in your project.


Are you more of a visual learner? No worries, just launch a demo on this topic in your own viewing format!

Like I promised, SHORT, SWEET and TO THE POINT!

That's it for this blog.

Until next time (and all times in between)...
Happy Viewleting!
