We’re excited to announce that a new version of the Eventzee app will be available for download later this week! The latest version of Eventzee has been totally reworked to offer virtual events and scavenger hunts for any occasion. Whether you’re looking for a team building exercise, new ways to engage with your customers, or a fun family activity, the NEW Eventzee app provides the most features of any scavenger hunt app available.
We’re excited to release the new Eventzee, complete with a collection of brand new features, but in the meantime allow us to break down some of our favorite aspects of the new app!
One of the most noticeable changes is the release of the new Eventzee logo! The mission of the new app is to offer a tool for people working together to solve challenges, and interacting with one another via virtual events and scavenger hunts. Our new logo appropriately showcases the power a group of diverse people have when they work together to locate, and complete challenges in a real world setting.
Each Eventzee event will now feature three distinct sections within the dashboard.
Event- What would be considered “Home,” this section includes the event description and details, allows you to see your stats particular to that event, and there’s even a spot to upload a profile picture!
Challenges- This section will show you a list of all challenges. The different challenge types are defined by their corresponding icon. When you click on a challenge you’ll then be able to see the challenges’ expanded description, any accompanying photos, and here you’ll also complete the challenge depending on the type.
Social- Here’s where you can interact with other players in your event! There are three features within the Social section.
- Feed- Here players can see one another’s approved photos and videos and “like” them to cheer each other on.
- Chat- Using this feature players can chat amongst themselves, strategize and work together
- Leaderboard- See how you stack up against other players! Can you go for gold?
The NEW Eventzee app offers 7 different Challenge types!
- Photo– An Eventzee classic! Photo challenges encourage interaction and drive creativity.
- Video- Take your challenge to the next level with 30 second video submissions.
- Quiz- Challenge your players’ minds with multiple choice questions.
- GPS- Prove that X marks the spot by checking in to specific GPS locations.
- QR Code- Locate and find hidden QR codes.
- Text- Gather information from your players via fill-in-the-blank questions, and approve the submissions in real time.
- Information- Share important information regarding challenges, locations, and more with informational tips.
Any mix of challenges can also be combined together in a Grouped Challenge to require players to complete a number of challenges at a time in order to earn the points. This is specifically helpful if you want a variety of challenges to be completed at one location. For example, guide players to a specific location with a GPS challenge, have them answer a Quiz question based on Information in that area, and take a Photo while you’re there for good measure!
Challenges can also host informational photos within the description as well for an alternative clue to what the challenge requires. For example, use an example photo to show players a specific statue or landmark they’re looking for. This section is also a great spot for showing branded images to showcase your organization’s logos, marketing materials, and more.
Now running your event is easier than ever! Admins of events can approve photo, video, and text submissions within the app itself. You’ll still use the web admin tool to set up your hunt, create your challenges, and more, but the new app makes approving on the day of your event much simpler.
If you’re an admin you can access this section via the hamburger menu. From there a new menu will appear where you can review submissions, message players, download user media, post announcements and more.
A BRAND New Opportunity
Another exciting aspect of the new Eventzee app is the ability for clients to host their own white-label version of the Eventzee app. This totally unique app branded to your specifications uses the Eventzee technology, but operates as a separate build hosted by the client. Although development costs depend on the scope of the project, this high-end option is perfect for brands that want to make an impact in a partnership with Eventzee.
Our company has already kicked off its first white label project with the release of the Barnes Nation app this Spring! Hosted by Barnes Harley-Davidson in BC, Canada, Barnes Nation is a lifestyle app designed to get motorcycle riders out exploring the open roads and meeting new friends.
The NEW Eventzee app is an entirely new build, so when the new app is available you will not update your current version of the Eventzee app. Instead you will need to search for the new version in your phone’s app store.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be transitioning a number of aspects to the new system. We will keep the previous version of the Eventzee app running for some time, but we do plan to shut down that version in the near future. You can read more about how it relates to Munzee Events on the Munzee blog. Although the older version of the app will be available to use, it will be removed from the app store later this week and not be available for future installs.
We’re also working on a new pricing platform, but ultimately want to work with clients to best suit their needs. If you’re interested in hosting your own Eventzee virtual events and scavenger hunts please fill out the contact form on our website and we’ll start working with you today! Thank you all for your support over the years- we’re excited to bring you a streamlined app with new challenges and other new features!
