Introducing… Collections (aka: how to make a quiz on Represent)

Introducing… Collections (aka: how to make a quiz on Represent)

2016-07-13_12-42-16Yesterday we launched a collection of questions that allowed users to compare themselves with the views and policies of the, now, UK prime minister Theresa May.

We’ve done a few comparison quizzes like this before, for the London Mayoral elections and for the EU Referendum.

Crafting these first quizzes was was a little time consuming as we made them by hand. But in doing so we learnt which aspects were repeatable. From there we were able to create a simpler version that any member of Represent (as well as ourselves) could put together with a few clicks. We call this feature ‘Collections‘.

Collections bring together a number of Represent’s features and technologies and allow you to quickly select existing questions on Represent to create a quiz.

Once someone has completed the quiz they are shown how they compare to it’s creator, to those they are following and their Facebook friends who are also members of Represent*.

How to create a Collection (aka: a shareable quiz)

Go to the top right of your screen a press the green plus sign.


Fill in the basic details. (Note: Have a suitable photo handy, with the permission to use it.)


Search for and select your questions


If a question you’d like to ask doesn’t exist, create a new question, then select it to add it to your quiz.

And you’re done!

Share with friends and keep us posted.

Any problems or feedback, let us know.
