This has been another busy month. We've added a lot of quality of life improvements to the platform that will help you create new and exciting experiences for players.
More Point Control
While manually scoring answers on Trivnow is extremely rare, we are always looking for ways to make the platform more flexible and give hosts more control over the experiences they aim to create for players.
This update allows you to manually adjust the point values for any answer or team. Again, the system automatically tallies points and grades answers, but if you want to give the last place team an extra 2 points, you can.
Always the co-host, never the host
You're now able to give event management access to another Trivnow host. This feature aims to make growing your trivia business easier. You can configure your event entirely, then add a co-host to administer the event.
The co-host is unable to process payment for your event.
We've all been there. We've asked a question, received a vague or incomplete answer from a team, then we're faced with a dilemma.
Do I give this team partial credit or not?
Today we're introducing a way to remove this moral predicament from your next event. You're now able to ping a team and request they clarify their answer.
You can only request clarification on Free Response questions. Once you've stopped accepting answers for the question, you'll be unable to request clarification.
The team will only be able to update their answer, they won't be able to change wager amounts. When they submit their clarification it'll be graded against the acceptable answers for the question.
Improved Round Management
Prior to this update round management was a little too restrictive. We allowed hosts to set the questions per round but didn't factor in the total number of rounds or that some rounds might not have the same questions in that round as others.
With this update we've added in a new round management system that lets you explicitly set the number of rounds and the questions in each round. This gives you (and your players) an exact picture of the progress of your event. It's also entirely optional and can be updated anytime during an event.
If you opt to not fill in the round information for your event, the system will default to showing:
Questions Asked / Total Questions
Update Answers UI for Trivnow Host
We've also added some minor changes to the UI when grading answers in the app. This includes a new options button to give you more control over the actions you wish to carry-out on an answer and the team name will now display below the submitted answer (instead of the username).
