Trivia Library and Social Wall Updates - April 2021

April 28, 2021

We have one more round of improvements and tweaks for you this month. We had so many requests from the holiday rush of users that we had to take the time to publish these updates out to our user base. BINGO is coming! We promise.

With that said, let's get into this month's product updates!

Downloadable List of all Trivia Library Games

Many users have requested a downloadable printable PDF of all of our Trivia Library's games organized by category. Ask and you shall receive! At the bottom of the Trivia Library's categories list there is now a link to a living Google Sheet with all of our available trivia games organized by category. The Google Sheet will get updated every week with the newly added trivia games to the Trivia Library.

A Google Doc that displays all of Crowdpurr's trivia library categories and games.
The Trivia Library list is updated every week. You can even make your own copy and tweak it!

The Google Sheet is pre-formatted to print nicely or to save to PDF. You can even click to "Make a copy" in your own Google drive for your own editing. Feel free to use the list as a resource for your own clients to use to choose trivia games, complete with your branding and style.

Remember, 100% original, fact-checked, content-rich FREE trivia games on classic and trending topics get added every Monday by our amazing trivia team!

Fifteen Questions on Basic Plan

In 2021, we want to start offering even more functionality on our free Basic Plan for everyone to use. We're starting with increasing the free Basic Plan's Question Count to fifteen questions. So free Basic Plan users can now clone entire trivia games from the Trivia Library without being limited to only ten of the fifteen questions.

Easily Hide Experience Logo

Some of our premium users simply want to remove the Crowdpurr logo versus uploading their own.  Previously this required uploading a transparent PNG file as a work-around.

Now you can simply enable the Hide Logo switch next to the Custom Logo upload area. This quickly and easily hides the Crowdpurr logo on the Mobile View and Projector View. It also works on any already uploaded custom logos as well.

The Custom Logo section with a new switch called Hide Logo that allows the custom logo to be hidden.
Don't want to show the Crowdpurr logo or your own? Just enable Hide Logo.

Instagram Is Back for Social Walls

The older Instagram logo morphs into the new Instagram logo.
Yay, Instagram!

Our Instagram integration was temporarily disabled on Social Walls due to Instagram limiting how new posts were published due to concerns regarding the United States 2020 Presidential Election.

Now that the election is over, Instagram has lifted their restrictions on publishing new posts for aggregation and this now allows Instagram to function correctly with Crowdpurr Social Walls again!

Optimizations

Perhaps the most important updates of all this month were our optimization updates we discussed above. We completed heavy duty performance updates on multiple core functionalities of Crowdpurr underneath the hood including:

  • Overall reduction in server overhead when running large (1000+ participant) experiences
  • Significant reduction in server round-trips to check user permissions

With these optimizations you can enjoy a snappier, quicker Crowdpurr!

Minor Tweaks

⚡️ Drag & Drop Improved Throughout Experience Dashboard

Upon adding drag and drop functionality to the My Experiences page, we also improved performance of reordering both Questions and Answers on the Experience Dashboard. Including adding mobile browser support. Keep on the lookout for some fun new drag and drop features coming on the Mobile View soon. Rank-em style trivia questions anyone?

Bug Fixes

In addition to the updates above, we squashed the following bugs in January and February including:

🐞 Numerically Named Advanced Teams Rank Correctly

Several users reported issues that when using numerically named Advanced Teams (e.g. "1", "2", "3", etc.) the rankings would appear out of order. While performing our ranking optimizations we corrected this issue.

What's Next?

We know, we know... no new exciting "marquee" features this month. We spent a lot of time under the hood the last few weeks. But the good news is now that we're finished, we can get back to awesome new features that make your virtual events with Crowdpurr even more fun! Next month... we will be releasing our all-new BINGO experience!

As always, if you want to be the first to know about updates, beta tests, and get all the latest updates follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn!
