How to Customize Smartphone Mobile View in iSpring Quizmaker?

Hi,

I am creating a quiz using iSpring Quizmaker, and in the Player settings I found that there is an option to enable different interface when we access the quiz on the mobile device. Basically the mobile view is simple without any branding style and colors which I set up for desktop view.

So, my question is - Is there any way we can customize that mobile view using company's brand colors and fonts?

Thanks,

Shailesh G

  • Hello, Shailesh, and thank you for your question!
    Sure, you can disable the mobile-friendly mode in iSpring Player, and then the quiz on a mobile device will be shown with the same color scheme as on the computer. To do it please open Quizmaker -> go to Player -> Navigation -> uncheck the field "Display slides on smartphones in mobile-friendly mode".
    Does this help?

  • Yes. That I'm already aware of. I want to customize the mobile view, at least the color of the buttons if not everything.

    Also, this is another issue - the SUBMIT ALL button is not available in the Mobile view.

    • Shailesh Hello! Thank you for your feedback!
      I am afraid that currently there is no way to change the color scheme for mobile view - but since you disable the mobile-friendly mode in Player, the buttons will be the same color as they are in the desktop mode. 
      And can you please describe your issue with the "Submit all" button in the Mobile mode? Does the button not appear there?

  • Hi Annie - Sorry to say but your both the claims are wrong or not possible with current version of iSpring QuizMaker (latest version). 

    1. I cannot change the color of the buttons for the mobile view. See the attached screenshot for reference.
    2. Also, I cannot see Submit button in the mobile view. See the attached screenshot for reference.

    The attached screenshot has both the views. Please check and let me know.

    Thanks,

    • Shailesh Hello! Thank you for your feedback message! I am sorry that the issue persists!
      Do you have the latest version of iSpring Quizmaker? And do you have the standalone quiz file or is it a part of the course in PPT?
      To make the color of the buttons the same for mobile devices and computers you need to uncheck the field "Display slides on smartphones in mobile-friendly mode" in Player. Please see the screenshots attached. But let me note that it will work only for standalone quizzes.
      Concerning the Submit button, it will not be shown in the mobile mode player, but at the end of the quiz the user will receive the message "Submit All" after all the questions.
      Hope it does make sense!

      1. I am using the latest version of iSpring Suite Max.

      2. I am working on standalone quiz project files without integrating in to PPT.

      3. I am aware of the difference between Smartphone view and the desktop view.

      4, I know the feature to change or customize or modify the smartphone view is NOT available in the player settings at the moment. We can just toggle between those, but we cannot customize it. I am asking, is there any other way we can do it by modifying HTML+CSS?

      5. Regarding Submit All button - It is available in Desktop view but it disappears when you preview the quiz on the Smartphone mode - Please refer to my previous reply for screenshot. It should be there in Smartphone view also, because for 50+ questions, users can submit all questions at once and/or finish quiz without answering all questions.

      ***Could you make this feature request - if the above options are not available in the current version?

      Thanks for the response.

  • I'm having the same issue. If I disable the "mobile-friendly" mode, I get to retain my customised design, but gifs don't play. If I enable it, gifs play, but I lose my design. I wish I'd known this before spending hours building the whole quiz, as learners will only be accessing it on mobile, not desktop.

    • Samantha West Hello! Thank you for your feedback! 

      To better understand the issue and to troubleshoot it we need to take a look at the original project. Is it possible to send it to us? 

      To send the presentation, please do the following:
      1) in PowerPoint go to File → Share → Share iSpring Project → Export. Then click on Create zip.
      2) If the ZIP is bigger than 20 mb, just open https://wetransfer.com/ in your browser and send the file to support@ispring.com

      Here is a link to a help doc on how to export the project:
      https://www.ispringsolutions.com/docs/display/IS10/Exporting+a+Project

      Looking forward to your presentation!

  • Hello,

    I see that this issue was raised 7 months ago - I am having the same issue and do I understand that it has not been solved?

    Why are we paying Maintenance fees then?

      Harold O would be nice to hear back from iSpring regarding any updates for theming within mobile view. I appreciate how their activities are responsive, but consistent theming is crucial for accessibility, the UX, and branding.

  • Harold O Jordan Hopkins Hello! Appreciate your feedback!

    So the thing about mobile-friendly mode in iSpring QuizMaker is that it does bring changes to the actual slide where all the background pictures are removed, gifs are static, color schemes are simplified and etc. All of that is done to make quizzes as simple and as user-friendly as possible.

    Thank you for understanding!

      Simon Zellweger thanks for replying! However, the original concern wasn't answered. Mobile View seems to cancel out even the most basic branding (colors and font choices) which are present in the rest of the course. Even if my slide is super simple and all I want are the buttons to be the same shade of Gold as the rest of the course's buttons, they default to a Blue color in Mobile View last time I checked. 

      Would it be possible for Mobile View to at least retain basic branding? (Colors, Fonts, Styles, etc.)

      Thanks!

      Hi again!
      Mobile View does not cancel out anything by default, it copies the same layout as the basic player has even with design changes (Screenshot 1). 
      However! If you turn on "mobile-friendly" mode (Screenshot 3) - it will change the layout (Screenshot 2). 

      I hope you find this information useful!
      Best regards,
      Simon.

      Simon Zellweger I beg to disagree with you on the above. The Mobile display does not take any icons/pictures/color theme from the desktop. (Only the Quizmaker version 8 was capable of doing that)

      Please have a look a this quiz on a desktop and on a mobile simultaneously. 

      https://en.practice-psc-tests.ca/en/sle.english/Reading1/orderly2/

      The mobile version does not copy any customisation/pics/ etc from the desktop except the essential data.

      The mobile version imposes its own buttons & colors ( blue & white).

      It's currently impossible to customise anything in the mobile version. But it was not the case with earlier versions of Quizmaker (like version 8).
