Simultaneous/dependent animation in Onshape assembly?

I’m trying to set up a presentation with an Onshape assembly and I want to simultaneously animate or link two parts (to be animated together). How do I do this?

How are the two parts supposed to move? You can set up two mates with the motion relation mates (far right side).

There is gear, rack/pinion, screw, and linear. Then once you do this you can animate just one of the mates and both will move.

Take a look at this example I had for my students two years ago.
