Setting the start and end times for your quiz

When sharing your FlexiQuiz content you may want the quiz to automatically start and end at a specific time, on a certain date. Therefore, respondents can only view and access your content at the scheduled times. With FlexiQuiz, all members can set a date and time for quizzes to be automatically opened and/or closed - this will save you lots of time by not having to manually open or close your quiz, at the specific times.

The start & end times are based on the time zone set in your FlexiQuiz account. All accounts are automatically set to Central Time (US & Canada) - to update the time zone for your FlexiQuiz account, go to settings and select Account from the left-hand menu. Next to Time zone, select your relevant time zone from the drop-down menu.

This guide will show you how to schedule the dates and times your quiz is available for respondents to access.

How to set up:

  1. Create and Configure your quiz, test or assessment in the normal way
  2. Go to your Configure tab and select General from the left-hand menu
  3. Scroll down the page to Schedule and tick the box start and end dates location
  4. Next to From: select the date and time you want the quiz to start
  5. Next to To: select the date and time that you want the quiz to close

    Top tip! If you use this Schedule feature, you don't need to also open and close the quiz from the Publish screen. FlexiQuiz will automatically do this for you based on the dates and times you've set. The dates and times can be changed at any time by going back to your Configure screen.

  6. Share your quiz - use quiz link, send email invites, assign to respondent accounts or assign to groups

If the quiz is not scheduled to be open, quiz takers will see a message that says "This quiz is not open"

Quiz takers will be able to view your content and participate in any tests or assessments you've created during the times 'From' and 'To' scheduled times.
