August Update 2022

New

Have fun with the latest changes! We welcome feedback in our feedback room.

Major changes

  • Announcements in rooms
    You can now inform participants through room announcements. These can be accessed from anywhere in the application via the bell in the header. Announcements are managed in the room settings.

  • Formatting bar
    There is now a formatting bar for the most important formatting options with Markdown. The buttons can be used to insert the corresponding Markdown syntax in the text.

  • Moderation enhancement
    In addition to the Q&A section, moderators can now view question series and live feedback.

  • Moderation of wordclouds and open questions
    The answers of wordcloud content and open questions can now be moderated. For this purpose, it is possible to switch to the list view for wordcloud content. Keywords can then be banned so that they do not appear in wordcloud. Answers to open questions can be deleted.

  • LaTeX in answers
    Answer options of multiple choice questions can now be formatted with LaTeX.

Further changes

  • Navigation within a room
    Within a room, there is a navigation bar that allows quick switching between features and the room overview. Likewise, it is possible to navigate directly between different question series.

  • Content management
    The old option "Use in other series", which also copied the answers, has been replaced. Instead, new functions for managing content in question series have been introduced:

    • Copy: Copies the content to another question series.

    • Move: Moves the content to another question series.

    • Duplicate: Creates a copy of the content in the current question series.

  • Duplicate rooms
    In the room list there is now the possibility to duplicate rooms.

  • Invite moderating persons
    Previously, only people who already have a Particify account could be designated to moderate a room. From now on, you can invite any person simply by email address.

  • Highlighting of active rooms
    If there 15 or more people in a room, it will now be marked as active in the room list.

  • Preview of contents
    In lists with content, a preview of the formatted text with e.g. images, formulas or bold text is now displayed.
