Allow Automated Activities to run on click of Next/Previous

We often organize our lab exercise instructions by panel. At the end of the panel there is often an Automated Activity to check the completion of the exercise. Rather than displaying a button we could simply check the exercise when the Next button is clicked.

Also, we would like to script and record some forensic data that relates more to panel duration, completion % and possibly some debug information that the user doesn't really care about. In this case we could then see the results when looking at the LabInstance page from a support perspective without having to bother the user with a button.

Who would most benefit from this idea? Lab Developers or Lab Authors
What is the problem you are trying to solve?

The LabInstance page only shows the output of the Automated Activities (scripts and questions) which always require user interaction. It would be helpful to regularly add an Automated script when the user completes panels throughout the lab.
