TriviaMaker lets presenters create fully customized and engaging trivia games and game shows to engage with virtual or in-person audiences. Use any of their 4 different game styles to help attendees get familiar with speakers and sponsors, add excitement to your live streams, host game show nights, and more.
TriviaMaker provides a variety of resources for their customers, including helpful feature-specific tutorials and a very detailed FAQ page. If you have any other questions, you can also reach out to their Support Team by submitting a ticket.
Create a game
TriviaMaker is cloud-based, so once you create an account, you can make a game and then display it on a TV or projector. In this article, we'll show you how to embed it in your Event App!
First, select one of the game styles, then enter a name and optional description. Refer to the TriviaMaker resources linked above for guidance on the other basic options you can configure.
Next, click the Content section to start adding your game questions and answers. You can add these one-by-one or import them with a spreadsheet. Simply download their template file, fill in the questions and answers, and then upload it back to TriviaMaker! Whichever option you use, refer to TriviaMaker's instructions for specific directions.
When you're ready to share the game with your audience, click the Share button and copy the link.
Embed TriviaMaker in Webex Events
Once you have the link to your game, you're ready to embed the game in your Event App.
Add a TriviaMaker feature
If you'd like a dedicated feature in your event where folks can play the game, you can do so with the Web Link feature.
Simply add the Web Link feature to your event, edit it, and enter the URL that you copied in the previous step. Make sure you uncheck the 'Open link in external browser' box so the game will embed in your event's Web App. You don't need to use the Pass Data to URL checkbox.
⭐️ Keep in mind, you can change the feature name and icon to better reflect your game! Click the Settings (⚙️) icon to change them.
Attendees can simply click on the game feature to start answering questions. 🧠
Embed with a Custom Tab
If you'd like to use your game to enhance audience interaction during live streams, you can add it to a Live Stream feature or an Agenda session. For more information on using Custom Tabs, check this out.
When you create an Agenda session or Live Stream feature, expand the Attendee Engagement section, click the Enable Custom Tab toggle, and paste the game link into the Website URL field. Be sure to enter a Tab Name so attendees know what to expect when they click on the tab. Click Save Changes, and you're done!
Web App users will see your game in a tab to the right of the live stream panel, so they can play without leaving the live stream or opening a new browser tab.
Mobile app users can click the custom tab to launch the game in their device's default browser.
Let us know if you used this in your event and found a specific feature useful, or if we missed something that you think we should share with other customers.
