After your Trivia Game is created you are taken to the Experience Dashboard of your Trivia Game.
The Experience Dashboard is where you setup, edit, and run your Trivia Game. It's the nerve-center of your newly created Trivia Game. It contains the Control Center section that allows you to start, pause, stop, reset, and "drive" your Trivia Game. You also use the Experience Dashboard to edit your Trivia Game questions, add new questions, edit answers, view rankings, and export your Trivia Game's data.
Before we start our Trivia Game, let's makes some adjustments to the questions that were added from the Movies category.
Your First Three Questions
If you've followed this tutorial to this point you will have three Movies category questions under the blue Question(s) Setup panel. Feel free to look at each question that was created. You'll see that both a question and the answers were added. And that each question has a Correct Answer that has been marked with a yellow star to the left of the answer. For these questions, there is nothing else you need to do. They are ready to use.
Removing A Question
Let's demonstrate adding our own custom question now. To do this we need to remove the third question that was added so that we can add our own custom question and still be under the three-question limit of the free Basic Plan.
Click on the third question tab that says Question 3 under the blue Question(s) Setup tab under the Trivia Game Setup Panel section.
Next click on the green Edit Question button to the right of the question that has a pencil icon on it. This will open the question's Edit Panel. This will allow you to edit and/or remove the question.
Now click on the red Remove Question button that has a trashcan icon it. This will remove the question.
Adding A New Question
Now click on the blue Add Question button to the far-right of the question tabs. This will a new custom question to our Trivia Game as the new third question. This question will have default question text and will have four newly added answer options all with default text that we need to edit.
Edit Your New Question
Let's create our own Movie-category question. Let's edit our question to ask, What movie has the highest adjusted gross-income of all-time?
Simply click on green edit button to the right of the question's text. This puts the question into Edit Mode where we can make adjustments to the question like updating the text of the question. There are other options to edit but for now let's just edit the question's text. After you're done, simply click the green checkmark button to the right of the question to save the question.
Edit the Answers of Your New Custom Question
Now that you've edited your question, update each of the answers. Crowdpurr by default sets each question as a multiple-choice question and adds four default answers for your crowd to choose from.
Click on the green "pencil" Edit button to the right of each answer to edit that answer. This puts the answer into Edit Mode and an edit-panel appears that will allow you to edit the text of each answer, update the answer's color, set the answer as the correct answer, or delete the answer if you do not want it.
Let's change the first answer to the movie Titanic. When you've finished adding the text, click on the green "checkmark" button to save the text.
Continue by editing the next three answers to
- Gone With The Wind
- Star Wars
Set the Correct Answer
Since we created a Trivia Game, one of the question's answers must be set as the Correct Answer in order to let Crowdpurr know which answer is correct. To set the correct answer for each question, simply click on the correct answer's edit "checkmark" button to the right of the answer. In the Edit Panel that opens, click the Set As Correct Answer button. For this question, we'll set Gone With The Wind as the correct answer. Notice that the Correct Star Badge is now on Gone With The Wind.
You can also set the correct answer for a question by simply clicking on the empty star to the left of the answer you want to mark as correct. Feel free to give it a try by clicking the star next to Star Wars. After this, make sure to click the star next to Gone With The Wind since it's the actual correct answer.
The last step is to demonstrate how we can reorder questions. Simply drag and drop on the question tabs to reorder a question. Go ahead and click and drag on the Question 3 tab and release it when it's in the first available tab slot of our Trivia Game. This should move Question 3 to the Question 1 space and push our other two questions one space to the right.
You can also move a question by clicking the question's edit "checkmark" button and adjusting the Question Order field in the question's edit panel. Then save the question.
