Merceg's solution will obviously work just fine, but, if you don't want to have all the duplicate pages that that method would entail, you could just have the initial selection set a variable to a particular value and then have the Next button on the pages before the "splits" evaluate the variable and send learners to the next page that would be appropriate for them.For example, say you had a 20 page course. Pages 1-10 were the same for everyone. After that, front-line reps should see pages 11-13 and managers should see pages 14-18. Then, both the reps and the managers should see pages 19-20.So, on page one, you ask them to select whether they are a front-line rep or a manager. If they select "rep," the value of a variable you created (say, "UserType") equals "R," and, if the select "manager," the value of UserType equals "M." On page 10, you put an action on the Next button that says that, if the value of UserType equals R, goto the next page, else, go to page 14. (If you had more than two types of users, then you can't use the Else tab...instead, you'd create an action that tests for each type of UserType value and sends them to the appropriate page.)On page 13, you'd put an action on the Next button to send the rep to page 18 (thereby skipping over the manager's pages).The only downside to all of this is that, if you're using a "page x of y" progress indicator, it will reflect all of the pages, not just the ones in the learner's own track. If that's an issue for you, then you'll probably need to use Merceg's approach.Hope this helps!Laura
