After you've created a new Bingo Game, you'll be taken to the Experience Dashboard of your game.
The Experience Dashboard is where you set up, edit, and run your Bingo Game. It's the nerve center of your newly created Bingo Game. It contains the Playback Control section that allows you to start, pause, stop, reset, and ultimately "drive" your Bingo Game. You also use the Experience Dashboard to edit your Bingo Game's squares, add or edit squares, view rankings, and export your Bingo Game's data. By default, a 10-second Countdown Timer is enabled. For more information, see Bingo Game Settings - Playback and Timing
Before we start our Bingo Game, let's make some adjustments to the pre-loaded squares that were added from the Movies bingo game we selected in the previous article.
Bingo Setup tab on the Experience Dashboard
Your Pre-Loaded Bingo Game
If you've followed this tutorial to this point, you will have 75 bingo squares from a pre-loaded bingo game we've selected from the Movies category. These squares are displayed under the blue Bingo Setup panel. Feel free to look at each square that was created. You'll see that some squares have text content, images, and even animated GIFs. For these squares, there is nothing else you'll need to do. They're ready to use!
Removing A Square
Next, we'll learn how to remove a square. We'll be removing the first square from our Bingo Game.
The "Luxo Jr." Bingo Square's edit box
First, head to the blue Bingo Setup tab on the Experience Dashboard and locate the first square under the B column.
Next, hover over the square and click on the grey Edit Square button in the upper-right corner that has a pencil icon on it. This will open the square's Edit Panel. This will allow you to edit the square's text and/or remove the square entirely.
Remove Square confirmation message
Now, click on the red Remove Square button with a trashcan icon. A red Remove Square module will appear to confirm you'd like to remove the square. After clicking Remove, this will remove the square, along with its text and any added image or GIF.
You'll now see the squares have shifted up to replace the removed square under the B column. If you scroll down, you'll then see the Add Square option available under this column.
Adding a Blank Square
Let's demonstrate adding our own custom square now. Since we have removed a square from the B column, we now have room to create and add a new custom square. To add a square, click on the Add Square button with a plus sign at the bottom of the B column. Click on this button to add a new blank square to our Bingo Game as the last square in the column. This square will have the default New Square text that we'll need to edit.
Add Square button
Edit Your New Square
Let's create our own Movie-category square. Let's edit our square to say, "Toy Story".
Simply click on the square to edit its text field. This puts the square into Edit Mode where we can make adjustments to the square like updating the text of the question, adding an image, or an animated GIF. For the purpose of the tutorial, let's just edit the square's text for now. After you're done, simply click the green checkmark button to the right of the square to save the newly updated text.
Adding a new square with the Edit Mode
Now we'll learn how to re-order squares within a column. Simply click on the "grips" located on the lower-left side of the square. Go ahead and hold the "grips" for the custom square we've created. Hold and drag the square and release it when it's in the second to the last slot of the B column. This should push the square right above our custom-created square down.
