Flipgrid allows you to pose questions to a group, who then see the questions and video record their responses which are displayed together as a Grid. Each Grid is given a Grid Name and a web address, called a Grid Hash, that Grid Owners can customize to match the topic of discussion. Read more below to learn more about Grid Names, Grid Hashes, and how to customize your Grids.
What’s a Grid Name?
The Grid Name is displayed on screen when viewing a Grid. When naming a Grid, it is a good idea to describe the general topic of conversation in the Grid. For example, if you were asking educators what their favorite EdTech Tools are, you might name your Grid, "Best EdTech Tools 2015," that will display like the example below.
What’s a Grid Hash?
A Grid Hash is the unique piece of a Flipgrid URL that indicates the path to a particular Grid. When you create a Grid, Flipgrid will generate a 7-digit Grid Hash automatically, like the example below. Keep reading to learn how to customize your Grid Hash.
Customize Your Grid Name + Hash
Grid owners can customize the Grid Name or Grid Hash by clicking the 'edit' icon from the Grid Admin Panel.
From here you can edit the Grid Name or the Grid Hash. In the example below, the Grid Name, "Best EdTech Tools 2015" will display on screen with the Grid.
The Grid Hash, "education2015" will replace the original 7-digit Grid Hash to indicate the unique path of the Grid URL, as shown in the example below.
Links Change with a New Grid Hash
Grid Names can be changed as often as you like to suit your needs. Flipgrid will count down the character limit as you type the Grid Name into the field as in the example below.
Grid Hashes can also be changed at any time - but remember that a Grid Hash is what points to the Grid location. Once a Grid Hash is changed, any previously shared links to that Grid will no longer work when you change to a new Grid Hash.
