Fast-forward to the future! Watch this tour of the new Goosechase Studio, including a walk-through of the changes and new features, detailed below.

What Changes Should I Expect?

What’s in a Name?

First things first: we’re giving our beloved Experience Manager a snazzy new name— introducing the Goosechase Studio. Why? Because this name better captures the creative possibilities at your fingertips. Whether you're crafting a new exhibition, lesson plan, a team-building exercise, or something entirely new, the Goosechase Studio will be your canvas. Plus, let’s be real…it sounds way cooler.

Create Missions More Quickly

We know you’re some of the busiest people on the planet. You wanted an easier, faster, and more intuitive way to create Experiences, and we listened!

The improved UI on the Missions page will make it a breeze to create and schedule your Missions. 

Here's a sneak peek of the new Missions page, where all Mission-related settings are accessible!

Communicate with Participants More Easily

You'll soon have a dedicated page for sending and managing messages to participants, renamed Broadcasts. This will make it easier to use Goosechase to communicate with participants, sending broadcasts like, “5 minutes left in the Experience!”, or “Head to HQ to pick up your badges!”, to help you get everyone in formation.

The New New

You know we have to introduce some brand-new features, too! 

Maximum Number of Participants on a Team

It'll be easier for you to manage participants and team sizes by limiting the number of people who can join a team. 

Approximate Answers

Spelling and grammar sticklers, look away! Creators will be able to turn on “Approximate Answers” (adorably known as Fuzzy Matching within our product team 🐻) for Text Missions, meaning answers can be accepted even if they contain minor misspellings or pluralization. Don’t worry, you can keep this turned off if it really matters (spelling and grammar sticklers, come back!).

Save and Reuse Missions in the Mission Library

Being the creative geniuses you are, we know this one will come in handy for revisiting your greatest hits. You'll be able to save Missions to your library directly from the Missions tab.

You can also add those saved Missions to your Experience as many times as you'd like! This will make it easier to reuse Missions’ naming conventions or descriptions, or use the exact same Mission multiple times.

Draft Mode

When adding new Missions to a live Experience, you'll be able to set them in Draft Mode - meaning they won’t pop up for participants as soon as you hit Save. This will give you more flexibility for editing your live Experience on the fly.

Setting Missions to Draft Mode will also make it easier to collaborate on Mission ideas with your co-creators.

…and this is just the beginning!


We’re excited to continue building better tools for you to create better experiences for your community. 🧡
