Help / Welcome screen

Adding a welcome screen to your online quiz

You can add a welcome screen to the start of your quizzes to engage respondents and provide clear instructions for completing your online tests or examinations. The welcome page can include information such as details about any time limits, example questions, or maybe an educational video that participants will need to watch before starting the test.

With FlexiQuiz, any performance tracking such as time taken to complete the quiz, the number of attempts, or time limits won't begin until the respondent presses the button for Start Quiz.

You can customize the welcome page with various features including:

  • Images, videos, and audio
  • Themes with background colors and images
  • Updated navigation button color and text

This guide shows you how to add and configure a welcome screen on your FlexiQuiz.
