Frequently Asked Questions

If I'm not on that tab, will I still be able to hear notifications?

No, if sounds are enabled in your Channel, you will only hear it when you are viewing the Hoopla tab.

Will it notify the Team's users if there is a new notification, such as a Newsflash or Challenge?

Not right now, but that is coming VERY SOON!

Is everyone viewing the same Channel information, at the same time, within the Team tab?

No, the channel starts once you click on the tab. The same Channel information is included, but it may be on a different view than someone else who opened the tab at a different time.

Can I view the Hoopla Channel in the web version of Teams?

Unfortunately, the web version will not display the Channel. You can get to the Channel by clicking the "Go to website" icon located on the right. It will open the Hoopla Channel in a new browser.
