News, Features, and Other Goodies

If it's news, it'll be here.

Every year on the fourth day of May, nerds around the world come together to celebrate (arguably) the best movie series of all time. (Okay, we love us some Star Wars around here!)

If you love Star Wars as much as we do (good luck), here are some boards to kick off your day!

 

Play Star Wars: May The 4th Be With You!

One of the most under-utilized features of the site is the user profiles. Each user (whether you know it or not) has a profile page that shows some info about the user and all of their public boards. It wasn't much to look at, but it just got a major facelift....

March 1, 2017 is a date that will stick with FlipQuiz for a long time - for both good and bad reasons. But, let's back up for a moment.

Since our launch over 2+ years ago, one of the things we've been least happy with (and have heard the most issues about) is our "Save" process.

Well, we finally did something about it.

To be honest, this wasn't an extremely oft-requested feature, but we did get it enough times to give it a go.

Imagine you've started a FlipQuiz game, but the answers just aren't coming as quickly as you'd thought. You have five minutes left in class and half the board is still up for grabs. Rather than starting over or taking a screenshot, wouldn't it be great if you could just save how the board looks and pick back up tomorrow?

Now you can!

We see a lot of you posting your "Play" mode game links all over the internet (which is awesome!), but we found that it might be difficult for people to get back to the overview page from there. We think that people will want to (even need to) see the overview page from time to time, so we did something about that....

April 21st was one of this year's four Get to Know Your Customers Day days. To do just that, we quickly put together a short survey and asked you all to fill it out. In return, we offered a free lifetime FlipQuiz PRO account to one lucky winner.

We got back so many submissions that we thought it only fair that we actually award three lucky winners!

Here are the winners and the survey results....

One of our most frequently asked questions is how to share/export/print/embed boards elsewhere. We've had many of these features for a while, but they've always been a bit hard to get to. Not anymore :)

Easier Export

We moved all of the export-type links to a dedicated menu on a board's overview page. Under Export & Print, you can choose to export to Microsoft Word (DOC), Microsoft Excel (CSV), or print it to, well, paper.

Well, that might be a bit dramatic for a blog title, but we're really excited for the new board editor! The editor is the part where you type in your questions and answers - the part that has the buttons where you can choose bold, italics, etc.

TL;DR

The short version is simply this: we weren't happy with the speed (read: performance), clunkiness, and lack of extensibility of our old editor, called CKEditor. After doing a good bit of research, we settled on one that mimics the editor found on Medium.com, aptly called the Medium.js Editor.

How do you choose a student to answer a question? How about doing it at random? Some of you have asked for a way to do just that!

In our newest section of the site (called the FlipQuiz Toolbox™) we've added a new tool that will help you choose one of your students at random!
