Top FAQs that can help you take your Experience to the next level
Once you get the hang of things, there are lots of little things you can tinker with in the Experience Manager to fit exactly what you are looking to do. Here are a few articles I would suggest taking a look at if you are looking to level up! How to change the order of my Missions? - This may seem like a simple how-to article but in actuality, it is filled with examples that will guide you on the best way to sort your Missions. Do you want your participants to strategize by points? Are you looking for a way to group Missions? Do you want to space out your participants so that they do not flock (pun intended) to one location? The answers are here! What are automations? - Automations are one of those features that seem daunting, but they are actually pretty simple once you get the hang of it! One of our favourite uses for automations is to create flash Missions that release for a short period of time and then expire. These are great to drive your participants into your Experience (if you
City Tour Order (GPS missions)
I'm currently looking if Goosechase will fit my intended purpose. I'd like to make a city tour in a certain order. I can't find an option to unhide GPS missions based on earlier completed missions. Is this not possible? For my purpose I need a mix of (hidden) GPS missions and open choosable other missions.
Hello All, wanted to create a community scavenger hunt that would encourage people to go around the town and do various challenges. This would require check-ins, text answers, and photo answers. My question is how does Goosechase distinguish if the photo is of the correct image before it gives points? Thank you, John
What's the meaning of Community (to you)?
Hard to believe that it’s now been two weeks since The Nest launched. Each day we’re seeing new members trickle in, and within a few days we’ll cross our first major milestone — 100 Members! As we grow, I’m curious to get a better understanding from this group… What does community mean to you? What does THIS community mean to you?
Goose Related Terms & Phrases
I am creating missions to be used in university courses and would like to include fun, goose-related terms and phrases. Is there an inspirational list I could use when crafting my experience and mission descriptions? Does anyone have some phrases they have used that are fun and clever that they would like to share with me? Puns?
Art in the Eye of the Beholder
I have an event on horizon and would like to merge Goosechase and Art. The obvious connection would be to find pieces of art in the area and have missions centered on those pieces or have a self guided tour of a museum. I am looking for some other creative ideas…. maybe photography based, art element based, other?I would love to hear what the flock has to say! Any ideas or inspiration you may have for me is very welcome!
I think that it would be great to receive, rather than just email that there is a new post, some sort of highlight on the main page that new conversations/comments are awaiting me so that I can click there and get to the conversations.I often feel a little overwhelmed because I am looking for that last place a comment was made. Anyone else have that issue?

Top 5 FAQ Articles for New Creators
Learning a new platform can be difficult, but often times Creators all have similar questions when starting out.

This past year we tried to think of every general question our Creators would ask so we could build out the most robust FAQ page that we could imagine.

How do you handle privacy for minors?
I have used GooseChase for several library programs, and each time I had grownups agree to what is, essentially, a media release, but I’m curious if anyone has developed another method of protecting the privacy of minors or getting parental approval for using images.
