What is the Flashcard feature?

The Flashcard feature is a great feature that you can use to enhance your app! With this feature you can use it to include educational flashcards, recipes, company talking points, or any other number of uses. In this article we’ll go over the Flashcard feature and how to use it. 

How to use the Flashcards Feature:

Step 1: Create a new Flashcard

When you’re ready to create your first flashcard or add a new one, click on the “+ Add Card” button.

You then will see the Card editor populate and there you can assign it information for the Front and Back of the Flashcard.

In the Back section, you’ll be prompted to give your flashcard a top image or video. This is optional, but we recommend doing it to give your flashcards a bit of visual flair.

If you would like to use an image select “Image” under “Card Style”.

Note: If you opt for inserting an image, that image should be in a (16:9 aspect ratio)

If you want to insert a video, you will have to insert a YouTube Video URL in the provided section.

Once you have filled out your content, press “Save Card” in the Bottom Right corner.

Step 2: Edit Your Preferences

You will have a few settings to adjust how your Flashcards are presented to your users.

Adjust how you show your Flashcards, by enabling or disabling the Show List Screen.

By checking “Show subtitles” you will be able to see the subtitles you’ve created in the list view.

Step 3: Design your Flashcards

Navigate to the Design tab to customize the presentation of your Flashcards!

Here you have a couple of options for the front-side of your flashcards. You can upload an image by clicking on the gray image box which will bring up the media library where you can either upload a new image to use, or select a previously uploaded image.

You can also adjust the opacity of the image with the slider underneath the background image box.

Alternatively, you can have a solid color or two color gradient as your flashcards’ front-side. To do this click on the box under “Background Color”.

This will bring up the color editor where you can switch between a solid color and a gradient, select your background color, and change its opacity.

Step 4: Save and publish

Once you've created and customized your Flashcards, publish your app to showcase this feature to your app users!

The Flashcards Feature on Buildfire is a great tool for creating flashcards and quizzes for your app users. By following the steps above, you can create and customize your Flashcard Set with ease. If you have any questions, please contact Support@BuildFire.com
