Crowdpurr's 100% original weekly trivia library officially hit 1000 trivia games last month! Launched in March of 2020 as the pandemic set in, we've slowly added new trivia games week after week. Our team takes pride in brainstorming new topics, researching every question, and adding fun elements like GIFs and images. All to make it easier for you to get up and going quickly with an original trivia game.
This month, in celebration of our 1000th trivia library game, we've updated the trivia library with a suite of brand new features. Plus several more cool features like Printable Question Summaries and Question Links. Let's jump into it!
New Feature: New Trivia Library 📚
We've overhauled both the design and features of the trivia library including these great new updates.
New Question Search
We've expanded the trivia library's search functionality to include questions! Now upon entering a search, we'll return matches for both trivia games and questions. Easily switch tabs between trivia game results and question results with a click. Then selectively add the trivia questions you want one-by-one!
Want to search the trivia library for all questions on Harry Potter, no problem. The new question search spans our entire library returning you every question mentioning your search.
New Game Pages
Each trivia or bingo game now has its own page! You can review who wrote it, when it was created, how popular it is, and of course check out all the game's questions and answers!
Instant "Play Now" QR Code
Want to quickly try out a trivia game before you choose it? No problem. Just scan its Play Now QR code with your phone or click the link. You'll jump right into a fully playable version of the trivia game! You can even compete against other Crowdpurr users on the leaderboard that have played the library game previously.
View Question Answer Options
For the first time you can now drill down and review a multiple-choice question's answers including the correct-answer. Or review the various correct-answer options for a text-answer question. This makes assembling a trivia game from the library a snap when you can review the answer options as well.
New Writer Pages
We're also celebrating our amazing trivia team by giving our staff writers their own pages in the library! You can review a given writer's most popular games, check out their ranking compared to other writers, and see how many times their games have been cloned.
New Trending Packs & Game of the Month
To make it super-easy to find trending trivia and bingo games, we've added new Tending Packs and Game of the Month sections. In this section, you'll find a curated set from all of Crowdpurr's trivia and bingo games just in time for the upcoming holiday or trending event. All in one easy location.
We also have our Game of the Month which will feature our trivia manager's favorite game and also include contest winners of future user-submitted trivia games.
We've simplified the trivia library's visual design making it easier to see a list of your selected questions and how many questions you've added. We also updated the design for smaller width resolutions when using the trivia library within our Webex (and upcoming Zoom) integrations.

New Feature: Print Question Summary 🖨️
We're announcing another much requested feature, a print-friendly Question Summary tab. Now on the Experience Dashboard's Summary tab, you can click the Print View button that will open a print-friendly view of all your trivia game's questions. Click the Print button to easily save a PDF or print all your questions without any other website elements interfering.
This makes it easy to create a printable reference to give to a live host, a staff member, etc. to follow along with the questions of your trivia game.
For more details on printing the Question Summary, check out this Help Center article Adding, Editing, Moving, & Removing Questions.
New Feature: Question Links 🔗
Question Links let you add a clickable hyperlink on the Participant View directly below a question. Your participants can then click on it to open any website or link, like a video. This is useful for slower-paced experiences where participants are encouraged or required to visit an external website to watch a video, review content, etc. and then return to Crowdpurr to answer the question.
Question Links allow adding of both a URL and a Link Text. The new feature is found on the Experience Dashboard question tab, below the Question Media and Question Notes.
For more details on how to use Question Links, check out this Help Center article Question Links Explained.

Santa may have a few more gifts for the Crowdpurr user base before the end of the year. The Crowdpurr elves are still busy at work on the much-requested Crowdpurr for Teams feature.
