Bug Fixes:

  • When using points wagering, the upper-left-corner player points on the Mobile View now updates even if the host didn’t active Show Correct Answer (C) or Show Rankings Leaderboard (R) (or other rankings views). So the player always knows how many points they have prior to a points wager.

Version 3.5.1 - New Icons :star2:

  • Apple’s lawyer’s called (literally) and requested we remove any and all Apple emojis from the app. So you’ll start to notice our overhaul and migration to a properly licensed emoji and icon set.
  • Configuration updates

Version 3.5.2 - More New Icons :star2: and Bug Fixes :lady_beetle:

  • Added redesigned icons on the Create Experience page and on all pop-up dialogs including when answering on the Mobile View. Many of them are now animated!
  • Trivia question text is no longer selectable on the Mobile View in order to help prevent easy copying and pasting into Google to cheat (thanks to Michael Taylor for his post on our official Facebook Group letting us know about this)
  • Fixed a Crowd Controlled Mode bug where the time taken to complete the player sign-in page would run the first question’s timer down. Timer now starts correctly upon finishing sign in.
  • Bug fixes with Schedule End Time when removing and cloning experiences.
  • Minor design updates in various places.

  • Adding GIFs, stock images, and uploading images has been unified across the app into an easier to use pop-up window
  • Notification Limits - Email and SMS notifications now follow a monthly limit. Additional notifications can be purchased.
  • Many under-the-hood updates to latest versions of Crowdpurr’s core dependencies, libraries, plugins, database, etc. for security and optimization. We’re now running the leanest, meanest, fastest, and most secure version of Crowdpurr.

Bug Fixes :lady_beetle:

  • Fixed a bug when older trivia games appeared on the Trending list, their Published Date would get updated to the current date. Now, determining if a trending library trivia game is old or new will be much easier, as their Published Date will never change.
  • Restored access to Facebook login. It started crashing due to changes to the Facebook API and policy (which occurs often these days).
  • Added Custom Pop-Up Images (Convention Plan feature) to bingo games
  • Fixed issue on the Projector View where a question’s YouTube video with Obscure Title enabled wasn’t showing the black bar if questions were advanced without showing the rankings first.
  • Fixed issue with Social Walls displaying an incorrect URL under the Experience Dashboard’s Settings → Social Channels → Crowdpurr Settings
  • Fixed an issue where resetting an experience with Remove Participant Accounts enabled would prevent removed participants in that experience from using the same email or phone number to sign into a previously visited experience.
  • Fixed Projector View bug where the Question Timer would reset upon a participant answering when using Points Wager mode. Thanks to @webmaster for reporting on our forum!
  • Fixed a bug where updating answer as correct on the Experience Dashboard caused the Mobile View’s upper-left-corner points to be different than the actual rankings.
  • Fixed a bug where after a question completes on the Mobile View, if no views are shown, and the next question is in Points Wager mode, it would display zero and not allow any wagers.
  • Fixed a very recent bug but that caused Crowdpurr to stop loading on Smart TV browsers and Amazon Fire Sticks

Version 3.6.10 - Lots of Bug Fixes :lady_beetle:

  • Fixed a bug in Crowd Controlled Mode that would not show the automatic views, including the correct answer, if the player ran out of time answering.
  • Fixed UI jumpiness that occurred on the Experience Dashboard when switching questions when having question images of varying heights.
  • Fixed bug where VIP Guest List email notifications would fail if sending to more than 99 guests
  • Setting the Question Timer on the Experience Dashboard to zero now simply disables the Question Timer versus showing an error.

Version 3.6.12 - Points Wagering Bug Fix :lady_beetle:

  • Fixed a bug on points wagering questions where no wager would be cast unless the actual “Place Wager” button was pressed. Restored functionality to where whatever numerical wager is in the input field will be used for the wager. So imply pressing “Zero”, “Half”, or “All”, or typing in a number, will be enough to place a wager as it now successfully gets captured when the points wager timer runs out.

Version 3.7.0 - Experience Dashboard Performance and Bug Fixes :lady_beetle:

Although not a major feature update, we fixed a lot of issues.

  • Data table fixes! The data tables on the Crowd Activity tab, the Lead Capture → Participants tab, the Lead Capture → VIP Guest List, and the Lead Capture → Notifications now all function properly. With full search and sort support on every column of the table. These had been broken for a long time. They were also updated to require pressing the Enter to search to improve performance. :partying_face:
  • The Experience Dashboard and Experience List are much faster! We added new data caching so now loading your list of experiences will be much faster after the first time. The same for each Experience Dashboard page as well. After the initial load, it will load much faster. So navigating back and forth will be much snappier. Especially for those with a lot of experiences.
  • Corrected issues with the layout of unapproved text answers and unapproved social posts in the Experience Dashboard before being approved.
  • Additional minor bug fixes.

Version 3.7.1 - Bug Fixes :lady_beetle:

  • Fixed a bug where bingo squares on the Experience Dashboard no longer displayed the “Edit” pencil button.
  • Fixed a bug where adding questions from the trivia library from the Experience Dashboard was not refreshing with the newly added questions correctly.
  • Other minor bugs.
