BranchTrack Total Score

Has anyone figured out how to get the total score of the BranchTrack scenario using variables in Lectora?  The built in variable only tells the score of the particular scene (+10, +20, etc). I want to force the user to score at least a total of 75 points. I just can't get Lectora to capture that total amount at the end. Any ideas?

    Hi! I had the same issue and it turned out that Lectora wasn't properly reading the BT score. The folks at branch track had me do the following:

    We have a fix for the +score issue:

    1) Create a variable BT_Score_Fix
    2) Create action On Page Show - Run Javascript - paste the following code:

    // make Lectora listen for BranchTrack events
    window.parent.addEventListener(‘message’, function(message) {
    data = JSON.parse(;

    Now the “BT_Score_Fix” variable will always contain the correct amount of points (when also subtracting) and the +points (score) will be actionable.


    This fix worked in IE and Chrome up until January. I believe the last two lectora updates have caused this to stop working again when I republished. I was hoping lectora 17.1.2 would fix the issue, but it didn't. I have a ticket in with BranchTrack and Trivantis.
