Before we run your Trivia Game, let's open up the Mobile View to see what your crowd will see on their mobile devices and also play along when we test our Trivia Game shortly. You can open up the Mobile View on an actual mobile device (e.g. your mobile phone, your tablet, etc.) or you can open up the mobile client on a web-browser tab on your desktop computer, laptop, or iMac. All devices are supported.
To open the Mobile View, do one of the following:
From the Experience Dashboard
This is the easiest way to test your Trivia Game while still working in the Experience Dashboard as you edit your game. Simply click on the large blue Mobile View button in the Control Center area of your Experience Dashboard. This button will open a test Mobile View browser window on your desktop or laptop computer. This browser window simulates how the Trivia Game will look on smaller mobile devices. You can then have it open along side your Experience Dashboard for testing.
During your actual event, your crowd will access your Trivia Game using the following Mobile Device instructions.
On Your Mobile Device
Open up your mobile browser (e.g. Safari, Chrome, etc.) on your mobile device (e.g. smartphone, tablet, etc.) and in the URL field, type in crowd.live. You will then be asked to Enter A Code. Simply enter the five-digit Trivia Game Code for your Trivia Game from the Experience Dashboard. In this example, our code is LPBSK as shown on the Experience Dashboard. Your Experience Code will be different. Please see your Experience Dashboard.
Signing Into Your Trivia Game from the Mobile View
Once you have opened the Mobile View, it will ask you to enter a nickname. By default, a nickname is needed as a minimum from each player in order to join your Trivia Game. This is so each player can be displayed on the Live Rankings Leaderboard.
When the Mobile View is opened, enter a Nickname into the first field. Then click the Go! button. The Mobile View will update to say Game Will Begin Shortly. Each player's Mobile View will be in a holding state until you start your Trivia Game.
Ready To Follow Along and Play
You're now ready to follow along and play your Trivia Game using the Mobile View. As you run your Trivia Game, the Mobile View you have opened will update with the Active Question, allow you to answer, and show various Views that you set on the Experience Dashboard.
We're now ready to see how the Projector View works in the next step Launching the Trivia Game Projector View.
