How can I remember choices throughout an entire story?

For a bit of context, I gave the reader the choice to either be a vet or a social worker in my story.
I want this choice to be remembered throughout the story, and I actually tried to do this using the if method but for whatever reason it simply skips over what i have already coded.
Anyone think they can help me out?
My script as of right now:

Did you use gains?

in the last chapter, yes

This is likely happening because you’re trying to test a gain across chapters without the gain being added in that chapter (since it was in a previous chapter), which can’t be done on the web previewer. There are two solutions:

  1. Use the app previewer. Step 1, select the choice with the gain. Step 2, go to the next episode with the if/else coding and test if it works.

or

  1. Use the web previewer and use the flags tool under story modifiers. Step 1, click preview on the portal on a scene before the scene with the if/else coding. Step 2, click story modifiers then flags. Step 3, click on the flag vet/social_worker (it should turn gold). Go to the scene where the if/else coding is and test if it works. Test them one at a time to make sure both work.

yup! It worked! Will it work for other users, though?

Yes, it’ll work fine. The only reason you experienced this was because you were testing it across different chapters via the portal. The app doesn’t allow you to ungain a flag once it’s gained, so you have nothing to worry about with your readers.
