Take note of this when creating your own 'Tutorial' training!

Last Update: February 10, 2020

Hi all!

So after about 1 and a half year here, I'm finally confident enough to do a training based on my small success on Instagram. Do check it out in the 'Training' section at my profile!

Anyways, I had difficulty doing it. I read a blog post from about a year ago where the WA member also faced the same problem, so the problem has been around for some time and I'm wondering if others have had the same experience when creating a 'Tutorial' training.

The problem

What happen was, whenever a change is made after making a new page, it does not reflect in the preview. Other actions like deleting a page also did not reflect. It was frustrating when I was trying to create the training, as I didn't want to publish a sloppy looking training. I kept jumping back and forth to edit, only to see the changes was not reflected in the preview.

I even tried to give it a day before continuing editing, and used different laptops (my work and home laptops), and the problem persisted.

What i did

In the end, what I did was to copy my content to Microsoft Word, edit all the pages there till I'm satisfied and kept note on where I want to insert images. Then I created a new training and just copy over the content and insert the necessary pictures, page by page. I didn't have to do anymore editing as I've already done so on Word, so I published it straight away after that, and the training looks fine.

So yeah. For those who plan to create a 'Tutorial' training, I suggest typing out your content on Microsoft Word, make sure your content is edited to your satisfaction, then copy paste them over.

Do share your experiences if you had any problems when creating Tutorial, Video or Course training programs!

Thanks for sharing. I have similar experience, not being able to view the content until after it is done. Great tip on using MS-Word. There is also no attachment allowed, having that would be helpful for supporting materials.

Having an attachment for supporting materials is a good idea! You had the same experience? That area needs to be taken a look at by the tech support or something.

I was interested to see the answers, I have often found “site content” can be cumbersome, even from the get go, following Kyle’s training to the letter, and would often use word press or, I thought it might have been my low tech brain.

I am therefore not so surprised that uploading training on the platform might amplify the problem.

Thanks for the advice.. 👍
