Trivia is an essential way for communities to engage with one another, and it can be a fun way for people to connect and have a good time. It can also help build community spirit and a sense of togetherness.

There are a lot of different ways that trivia can be used to engage with communities. Trivia can be used as a way to promote community events or to give people the opportunity to compete against each other. Trivia can also be used to raise money for a charity or to support a cause the community is interested in.

Trivia can be a great way to connect with other community members and build a sense of community spirit. It can also be fun for people to get to know each other better.

Here are five reasons why trivia is essential for community engagement on Slack:

  • It's a fun way to get to know your community better.
  • It can be a great way to get your team working together and networking.
  • Trivia can be an exciting way to increase community productivity.
  • An excellent technique to gauge your team's expertise is through trivia.
  • Trivia can be a fun way to get your team energized.

Let's now see the best apps for trivia on Slack!!!


An app to bring engagement to your community.

How exactly?

Communities become more active due to Polly's facilitation of questions and answers on Slack. Anyone may ask a question and get a response about anything. This makes it simple for people to learn more about one another and exchange information. And it's just enjoyable!

Make excellent polls, play fun games, and answer interesting quiz questions here.

You can make your community members feel involved and get their excitement rolling.


If you're looking for some lunch suggestions, Foursquare is the right app!

Be it a lunch outing with your team, friends, or community members, or just some me-time.

Could you let Foursquare know your preferences?

Bonus: Let us also give you some ideas to sort your lunch today!!!

For meat lovers, how about some hearty sandwiches stacked high with your favourite meats and cheeses? Add some crispy chips and a pickle on the side, and you're good to go!

If you're looking for something a little lighter, how about fresh fruits and vegetables with a yoghurt dip? This is an excellent option if you want some extra nutrients in your diet.

And for those who like to mix it up, how about a lunchtime wrap? This can be filled with anything you want - chicken, veggies, hummus, the possibilities are endless!

But, but…

No matter what your lunchtime preference is, Foursquare hits the spot!
