Rocket launch for new flexiquiz features

New feature highlights

At FlexiQuiz, we release many new features and fix any minor bugs throughout the year.

Each new feature is built for you. We aim to keep improving your quiz-making experience so that it's simpler, more efficient, and more productive while improving test-taker engagement.

If you have any suggestions for new features, we would love to hear from you.

Please get in touch with any ideas or feedback. Although we'd like to build all the new features you suggest, it's not always possible. Our resources are limited, so we prioritize features that we believe will appeal to as many quiz makers as possible.
