HatQuest allows you to create custom quizzes with ease. All you have to do is log in to your account, navigate to the Quiz tab, and find the “Create New Quiz” option. You can then proceed to create a quiz manually or take the help of AI. The system will guide you on every step of creating your quiz.

When you create a custom quiz, you can either publish it or simply save it for your organization. Public quizzes can be viewed and played by people from outside your organization. Every quiz needs to be submitted for approval before it is published. The HatQuest team will review the quiz to determine if it’s fit for publishing. It is advised that you keep the questions universal, and not specific to your organization if you want to publish a quiz.
