In this video, we're going to take a quick look at how to use the xAPI features in our email scenario file.

In addition to the standard Storyline statements that fire in an xAPI publish, we've added some custom statements to give you some deep tracking on your interaction.

On the base layer, you'll see four groups of triggers - one for each of the tabs at left.
When the appropriate layer shows, there are two additional statements that *may* fire, depending on the user's response.
It works like this -
When the user clicks the first email tab, a statement fires indicating they "reviewed email scenario message 1."
Then, the email 1 sublayer opens.
On this layer, the user chooses between button 1 and button 2 in response to the email shown on screen.
When they make a selection, a custom statement indicating the user "selected email scenario 1 button 1" - for instance - is shown.

We've also included a "started" statement on the introduction layer that fires when the user presses the start button.

Each of these statements are contextually related to some values you enter for the slide identifier.
This makes them easy to sort and filter, and provides some nice visualization in the analytics dashboard of your LRS.

To use our statements, make sure DISABLE_xAPI is set to FALSE.
Then, enter the details for your slide.

Make sure to check out our xAPI overview video for more details on these details.

Once you edit those values, your file is set up and ready to go.

From here, you'll need to publish and launch your files to see statements.
