Rich text editing enhances how you communicate information by giving you the ability to alter text properties such as font, font-size, colour, bold and italics etc. It is also makes it possible to include pictures, links, graphics and other non-text components within a document. 

Rich text editing in Kahootz

How does this benefit me?

The rich text functionality in Kahootz allows you to take collaboration with your team much further.

For example, when adding a comment, you can "@ mention" individuals and teams to make sure that the conversation doesn't pass them by.

The editor also gives you the opportunity to offer rich narrative and guidance to your fellow team members by:

  • Linking to other items within a workspace - Highlight an item within your workspace, to give context to the point you are trying to make.
  • Including pictures, links, graphics etc - Rather than having to upload seperate files, you can insert images from picture albums or from external sources, making it easier for you to collaborate.
  • Customising pages - If you have the modify rights, you can customise any item's page with a description; which is handy if you need to clarify its purpose to users.

Where can I find the rich text editor?

There are a number of different places where you can use Kahootz's rich text editor:

  • Discussions - Start conversations and debates with your fellow team members.
