 Publishing Tips

  • Publishing a Storyline 360 scene or slide with a project backup to Review 360 saves the entire project as a backup, not just the scene or slide being published.
  • Individual Articulate 360 subscriptions have 150 GB of storage for Review 360 content items and Rise 360 courses. This includes Storyline project backups. Articulate 360 Teams subscriptions have unlimited storage space.

Access Storyline 360 Project Files in Review 360

For Articulate 360 Teams subscribers: Only you and your team members who have a seat can access your project backups. Everyone must be signed in with their Articulate ID. The option to download the source file won't display for anyone outside of your team.

Review 360 items include project backups. When removing a user from the team, the team retains ownership of any items with backups in team folders. Personal content is retained only if you choose to transfer it to another team member.

For individual Articulate 360 subscribers: Only you can access your project backups. You must be signed in with your Articulate ID to download your source files.

Here's how to determine which versions of a Review 360 item have project backups and download the source files you need.

Identify Which Versions Include a Project File

When multiple versions of a Review 360 item exist, you can tell which versions include a project backup by clicking the Version drop-down list in the upper left corner of the screen. Versions with project backups display a cloud icon and the date and time of publish, as shown below.

Note for content owners: The restore option makes the version you've selected the current version. It also permanently deletes newer versions, their comments, and their project backups. You can't recover these deleted versions, comments, and project backups, so if you prefer not to permanently delete them, use the hide option instead.

Download a Project File

Here's how to download a source file for a Review 360 item. Click the Version drop-down list at the top of the screen and select the version you want to download. Then, click the ellipsis button (•••) and choose Download project file.
