If you are creating multiple events, we recommend using our template and bulk uploading your challenges into the backend to save time.

Using the template

Download the Challenge template here.

Once you open it, fill out the columns:

Type: There are 6 types: In-App, In-App Trivia, Kiosk - Fishbowl, Kiosk - Trivia, Check-in, and Staff Scored.

Name: type in the challenge's name

Title: this is what players will see as the challenge's name in the Player App

Description: the description will be visible in the Challenge list and on the Challenge itself.

Points: assign a point value to this challenge

Code: if you're creating a Staff Scored challenge fill this out with the code required from your players

Instructions: the instructions will tell your players what to do once inside of the challenge

Badge type: choose either Icon or Image. If Image, you can update it after the challenges have been uploaded.

Badge Color: choose a color for your badge. Make sure it's in RGBA.

Icon Color: choose a color for the icon on the badge. This should also be in RGBA.

Badge Icon: use fontawesome to browse and select an icon. Type in the name on this column.

Image: leave this column blank.

Kiosk Mode: Set to Off if you're uploading QR Code challenges

Kiosk Thank You Message: Thank you players for participating in a QR Code or Kiosk Challenge. You can add a clue or give instructions on how to find the next QR Code

Group: Set challenges to be available to a group. Groups must be enabled first.

Visibility: Set it to Visible if you want it to show on the challenges list. Set it to Hidden if you want it to be hidden from your players.

Hot Tip: if there is anything else written on the template other than the challenges on their corresponding columns, you will get an error message when uploading.

Save the file once you're done. You're now ready to upload all of your challenges into the backend!
