You sent in feedback and we listened! Virtual events such as live virtual trivia, zoom trivia, and streaming trivia are more popular now than ever. Our users have been requesting virtual event features that we are happy to announce are on their way very soon. Most of which will be 100% free and available on every plan in the coming weeks.

[Now Live] Email and Phone Lead Capture For Everyone

We’ve had overwhelming feedback that all plans should have the ability to collect participants’ emails and phone numbers, rather than just a nickname. In these times, many businesses are pivoting to virtual events to market to their audiences online. Therefore, it’s essential to have the ability to acquire participant contact information. The ability to request an email and/or phone number is a necessity.

Crowdpurr Participant Lead Capture Settings including First Name, Email Address, and Phone Number
Collecting emails and phone numbers from participants will now be free and available to everyone.

Because of this, as a new virtual event trivia feature, we’re adding both Email and Phone Number lead capture fields to all plans! You’ll be able to add both the email and phone number lead capture field to any experience. Classroom Plan or better subscribers will then be able to export that data. Free Basic Plan members will still be able to view their lead capture data.

[Now Live] VIP Guest List – New Virtual Trivia Feature!

Many of our customers doing Zoom trivia have sent us feedback that they would like to use an event format that requires purchase or registration through a gateway or “paywall”. Examples of this are selling tickets on EventBrite, signing up on a registration website, joining a Facebook group, etc.

Crowdpurr URLs for trivia games are public. This means that once participants pay or register, they can easily share the URL allowing other participants to join the streaming trivia that haven’t paid or signed up.

A VIP host tells a woman in line that "you're not on the list".
Now you can prevent unauthorized participants!

No more! A new virtual event feature we’ve added allows you to upload a VIP CSV list of email addresses on the Experience Dashboard. Your Trivia Game will then restrict entry to only participants who’s email is on your VIP list! This will prevent users who haven’t paid or registered from entering the Trivia Game.
