When all of your questions have been answered and/or you just want to end your Trivia Game, you should "Finish" and finalize it. This will stop all answering and update the crowd's mobile devices and Projector View with a message that the "Trivia Game has ended." Finishing your Trivia Game is useful when you no longer want your crowd to use the Trivia Game and you want them to focus their attention back on your presentation, another topic, etc.
After your Trivia Game is finished, you can still enable the "Live Rankings" view if you want to review the final rankings of your Trivia Game and/or leave the "Live Rankings" view on for your crowd to view.
When you want to clear out any test games and reset your Trivia Game for your actual live event, you must first "Finish" your Trivia Game. Once you finish a Trivia Game, you have the option of resetting it, which we'll do now.
Finishing Your Trivia Game
To finish your Trivia Game, simply click the smaller circular yellow "Stop" button under the "Control Center" heading on the Experience Dashboard. This will stop all interaction from your crowd.
Resetting Your Trivia Game
Now that your Trivia Game is finished, to play it again, either as another "dry run" for testing purposes or for your actual live event, you need to reset it. Resetting will set your game back to the "Ready" state. This will update the crowd's mobile devices and Projector View to a "Welcome, the Trivia Game will start soon" message. Below, we'll learn about options for handling existing crowd responses.
To reset your Trivia Game, simply click on the circular blue "Reset" button under the "Control Center" heading on the Experience Dashboard. This will open the "Reset Trivia Game..." dialog where you'll have two button options:
Clear Crowd Responses
Click the "Clear Crowd Responses" button if you want to clear out all the current crowd responses. If you want to reset your Trivia Game to a clean state so it can be ran again as a "fresh" game, click on this option. It will also set your game's state to "Ready". This is the most common type of reset.
Keep Crowd Responses
Click the "Keep Crowd Responses" button if you want to reset the game's state back to "Ready" but want to keep the existing game results and crowd responses. There are some cases where this is useful, for example, when you want to re-run your trivia game for new players in your crowd but have them compete against previous players' scores.
After clicking on one of the above buttons, your Trivia Game is now reset. To start it again you'll need to click the green "Play" button.
