TriviaMaker resources

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, 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!

Embed TriviaMaker in Webex Events

Now that your 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, the Web Link feature is a great option.

Simply add the Web Link feature to your Event App, 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, to change the feature name and icon to better reflect your game, click the Settings (⚙️) icon next to the feature's name.

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, add it to a Live Stream feature or an Agenda session. For more information on using Custom Tabs, read our Embed Web Content with Custom Tabs article.

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!

For attendees using the web version, your game appears 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.
