    Is there a way to remove a player if their log in name is inappropriate?

    Will players be able to play UNLIMITED number of times? Or is there a limit of 1 game per player? I didn't see that in the settings.

    Please could you either make a way where we can use email domains as a requirement for log in or a way where we can remove students from challenge games due to inappropriate nicknames?

    How do you deal with inappropriate nicknames in a Kahoot challenge?  I would like to delete them from the leader board but don't see how.  I don't want random nicknames because I would like to know which of my students are playing.

    How can I allow a student to play a challenge all over again in order to help her see her progress?

    Can students see their classmates' score and their ranking in the class when they complete a "challenge?"

    I would never use this again. To easy to have an offensive name and then nothing you can do about it

    How can I edit the Kahoot challenge I made to extend the time of expiration? I would also like to extend the # of players.  How can I edit?

    Not sure if it is possible for students to play the game more than once?  I would like it to be that way if there is a setting.  Thanks.

    My students can't play without the app on their Chromebooks.  How do I set up a challenge they can play on chromebooks without the app?

    @mjyile: The students can, indeed, play more than once.  In fact, one of my students hijacked the top-5 board with his name on all 5 spots. 

     

    @Kahoot!: The following settings would be ideal: 1) require a sign-in, so that they can only use approved names (maybe through a Google Classroom extension?), and 2) Allow the teacher to set the number of times a student can play (from once to unlimited).

    I have the same exact questions as all of the other questions listed. However, there are no responses from Kahoot!!! What is the purpose of this questionnaire board if we don't receive any official answers???!!! This is very frustrating.

    If I do my kahoot as a challenge will I be able to see what their scores are and which questions they missed or how many they missed? I thought it said I coutd set up a video time with my class so we can play live but it won't let me do that -- any suggestions???

    How can they play more than once? I don't see any way to do so without using a different nickname.

    One last thing: At the moment, the premium version is FREE. You have to enter a credit card number, but I'm guessing that's so they can auto-rebill you after a year. I'm not sure how long it lasts but I'm fooling around with it now, so I can decide if I want to pay for the features or not and decide if I should recommend it to other teachers in my school. It's worth a try.

    You cannot click on players. There is no More Options button.

    I believe that the suggestion meant that maybe you can use a zoom video session to get everyone logged in and started? If you assign a login time, you can all play together and don't really need to have any video.

    Hey, to extend the deadline for a challenge you have to create a new challenge by going into PLAY and assigning a new challenge again...or at least that's what I've done. It's like you're just making a new one. Good luck!

    There should be an edit button.  I would like to extend the challenge as only a few students participated.

    They do need to use a different nickname, but the difference can be slight.  Like I said, my top five spots were (using a fake name): Johnny, johnny (lowercase j), johnny., (with a period at the end), Johnny1, and Johnnny).

    I would like to ask about what time zone are the times for setting the deadline date and in the asign section. I am in the central European time and it is pretty tough as I am not sure what time option to use If I want to make the deadline midnight in central Europe. Thanks for the answer.

    I agree.  Unless you can come up with a way to make them log in with their emails (or connect it to Google Classroom, or something to that effect), this is a really great resource that I cannot use.

    In regards to removing inappropriate names, I believe there is a way to do this. Click on Reports at the top of the page,  choose the correct game from the subsequent screen, then click on Players to see a list of all participants. Using the More Options icon on the right, you can remove the offending player.

    It would be really nice to have the option to require users to sign in with a domain email. This would eliminate the possibility for inappropriate nicknames. It could also be coupled with the option to specify how many times a single user could play a game. Allowing single or multiple attempts could each be beneficial for different purposes.
