    Quiz App: An option to share the results of quiz on social media websites particularly in Facebook

    Asked by hmcmillan on August 20, 2015 at 01:29 AM

    Hi,

    I keep running into threads where users are asking a very simple question and being given all kinds of workarounds that don't fulfill what they are asking for. If I am reading the question correctly, it is the same question I have been asking myself. How do we enable people to share their results to their facebook page. Not just to share the link for the quiz. Or to share their results to the quiz creators page.

    Has there been an effective workaround for this issue?

     

    Thank you

    Hello,

    Just to clarify, what do you mean to say is that when the user submits the form, they will see an option like a button or a plugin on the thank you page that would allow them to share their data on Facebook page? I think this is what exactly what my colleague has suggested so they can easily share their data to anywhere they want.

    If this isn't what you mean or if you have specific steps on how users are going to share the information to Facebook, please let us know. We'd be happy to help.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    If memory serves, the workaround that was given will share the page link but doesn't generate text to be shared. Ideally, when the user presses share my results it would automatically enter something like "I just scored __ pts on the ________ quiz. Click here to see how you stack up." If I misuderstood,I apologize- I had spent 3 hrs looking for a suitable solution last night.

    Thanks

    Apologies for the trouble. Unfortunately, the Quiz App does not have any function or option to share the results in the Facebook page or other social media websites with the layout you like, similar to a thumbnail or "I just scored ___" titled on the shared post, those we see in the Facebook page have a corresponding app in the Facebook website itself which formats the layout, there's an integration between Facebook and for those quiz/survey apps. The Quiz App does not have an integration to share the results.

    But let me forward this to our developers as a feature request. Please note that I'm unable to guarantee that this will be implemented anytime soon, as it depends on the current workload of the developers, but rest assure that they will be aware of this.

    Thank you.

    Any update on this? It would really make the quiz look a lot more professional. Also, I'd really like to have the results page show up in the same iframe as the quiz itself, but no matter how I configure it, it always redirects to a new page.
