In this tutorial you will learn how to add an essay page.

Essay pages can be used to ask for an opinion, review or any other response that requires an open answer. The page contains a text field where the user can write their answer.

*We recommend to use Google Chrome to ensure an optimal experience when using AppicalNow.

Step 1. Click on ‘Courses’ in the menu on the left. 

Step 2. Navigate to the course where you would like to add a new page. Click on the button that says ‘Editor’ the bottom left corner of the desired course. 

Step 3. Next, select the story where you want to add a new page.

Step 4. Select the chapter in the menu on the left. 

Step 6. Choose ‘Essay’ in the menu on the left and click on the button that says ‘Add page’ in the bottom right corner. 

Step 7. Select the desired language. 

Step 8. Give your new Essay page a name. Click here for a guide on choosing a good name for your page.

Step 9. Pages are set to ‘live’ by default but can be set to draft. Draft pages can be very helpful when you’re working on a page while new hires are already using AppicalNow. Click on 'Live' and select 'Draft' to change te setting.

Step 10. Write the assignment the text field underneath the title. It has to be clear what the user has to do. For example: “We are curious about your experiences in your first week at our company. Did you encounter any problems?”

Step 11. The text that you type at 'Explanation' will show up after the user confirmed their answer(s). You can thank them for the feedback or his/her opinion for example.

Step 12. If a user clicks on the info button at this page they will see the text that you write in the text field underneath 'Info Button'. Use this to give the users more information on the question or the subject.

Step 13. At Page Options you are able to configure answer settings and advanced settings. If you select the checkbox at ‘Mandatory Correct Answer’ the user can’t proceed to the the next question until this question is answered correctly.
