Welcome the NEW Eventzee App!

We’re excited to announce that a new version of the Eventzee app will be available for download! 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.    

Eventzee, the state of the art virtual event and scavenger hunt app, is now available on iOS and Android devices. Those interested in utilizing Eventzee’s services can learn more at eventzeeapp,com.

We’re excited to release the new Eventzee, complete with a collection of brand new features, so allow us to break down some of our favorite aspects of the new app!

Fresh Facelift

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.

Home Base

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? 

Challenging Choices

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.

Admin Extraordinaire 

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.

Housekeeping

The NEW Eventzee app is an entirely new build, so 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!

Eventzee 1.72 App Update

We have released a new, albeit small, update to the Eventzee app. This new version sees a few minor changes along with one fairly substantial removal.

-The Calendar page has been removed from the app for the time being. The free hunts will continue via text Join Codes found on our social media pages and marketing emails. This is to declutter the initial experience of the app- specifically for new users at private events. There are plans to add in a reformed version of this page in the future, but for now players will have to join the hunts via public codes.

-With the removal of the calendar we have added an “Exit” button to event page on iOS. Exiting an event will take the player to the My Events page now. This replaces the previous way of exiting an event by clicking the date of the hunt.

-The “Message” icon has been added to the clue list, leaderboard and map pages. This is to ensure players can easily find and message event admins.

-A link to the event photo gallery is now available in the app’s leaderboard. Now you can see some of the photos other players have submitted and had approved.

-Minor bug fixes.

Eventzee Update Version 1.6

We’re proud to announce the Eventzee version 1.6 update for Android and iOS devices is now available. We’ve introduced a new photo clue feature and fixed a few bugs. Download the update today!

Features Include:

  • LIBRARY UPLOAD OPTION:
    Eventzee 1.6 features a new photo library upload option. You can now use photos you have taken in the past and upload them for certain photo scavenger hunt clues. This feature can be toggled on and off for each clue individually and is perfect for uploading screenshots of social media posts, throwback photos, etc.
  • LIMITLESS CLUE LENGTH (iOS):
    Previously iOS devices limited clues to a few lines of text, but now clue descriptions can be as long as you like.
  • PUSH NOTIFICATIONS FIX (Android Users):
    It was brought to our attention that Android devices were not receiving push notifications, so this issue has been resolved in the latest update.

The new Library Upload option is mostly for private clients, but our weekend photo scavenger hunt will see clues from time to time use the option. For example our #ThrowbackThursday clues will now be upload available. So instead of taking a photo of a computer screen, you can upload the photo straight from the app. It is still important for the integrity of the game though that photos are taken in real time, so this upload option will not be available for all clues.

Checkout the video below to see how it works:

Be sure to join this weekend’s free photo scavenger hunt to test out these new features. To join these hunts, just find the Weekend Warriors event on the Eventzee in-app calendar and RSVP or scan this week’s join code found on the blog.

Eventzee Update Version 1.4

We’re proud to announce the Eventzee Version 1.4 update for Android and iOS devices is now available. Although this version of Eventzee is light on new additions, one big feature (some might say a necessity) is the ability to resubmit photos after you have already sent one to the Admin. This is something that players have been asking for since we started and we’re now happy to say you can resubmit photos without having to wait for Admin rejection.

Along with the resubmit option we have made a couple more tweaks to enhance the overall hunt experience:

  • RESUBMIT PHOTO OPTION:
    We get it, sometimes mistakes happen and sometimes you might submit the wrong photo to the wrong clue. Now instead of waiting for the Admin approvers to reject your submission you can resubmit right in the app. Simply click on the photo and re-submit as many times as needed. Be cautious though because re-submitting a photo will erase the original photos submission time. Once a photo is approved you will not be able to resubmit.
  • ADMIN CHANGE TEAMS:
    Although players in Team Hunts have always had the ability to switch teams whenever they feel like, Admins now have the ability to choose whether or not players are able to. So if the Admin chooses to, you’re stuck with your team so choose wisely.
  • CAMERA ZOOM (iOS Users):
    Need to snap a pic from far away? Well now you can use the camera to zoom in and submit even more unique photos. This feature has been a part of the Android version for a while now, but iOS users can finally grab those hard to get photos too.
  • SLIDESHOW GALLERY (Desktop only, not in-app):
    We have also updated the desktop gallery to feature a slideshow option. Now when you look back on the photos from your hunt you can watch along easily. This new addition to the galleries is perfect for on-site photo hunts so you can see the photos as they come in. To check out this new feature visit eventzeeapp.com/gallery (or the private link we have sent you for your event), click on a photo and then press the triangle “PLAY” button in the top right corner.

Be sure to join this weekend’s free photo scavenger hunt to test out these new features. To join these hunts, just find the Weekend Warriors event on the Eventzee in-app calendar and RSVP or scan this week’s join code found on the blog. If you’re interested in hosting your own Eventzee hunt please contact eventzee@munzee.com and we’ll get you set up with the right package.
