An introduction to Monterosa / FanKit the real-time interactive toolkit
FanKit is the embeddable interactive toolkit, part of the Monterosa / Interaction Cloud and the underlying product powering many Monterosa Experiences. It is a responsive web app with a range of real-time interactive Elements designed to be embedded in your website, hosted on a subdomain, or opened inside your native app.
These documents cover all of the underlying capabilities of FanKit, including those which may not be applicable to all Experiences.
FanKit includes interactive capabilities that are designed for scale, including many different kinds of Polls, Quizzes, Predictions, and other interactive and media elements - see the full list of Elements
There are four different display modes, Card,Timeline, Tabs and Hub. In Card mode, only one card is displayed at a time, with the most recent being visible. This mode can be used for standalone elements, for example if you wish to embed a simple poll in a site, or a sequence of unconnected polls. It is also utilised by Experience configurations such as Always-on Quiz, where points and Gamification connect individual Elements into a flow.
In Timeline mode, each new Element that is published, stacks on top of the next in a feed.
Tabs mode offers multiple feeds can be displayed one at a time, elements will go into each specified feed.
Hub mode, like Tabs mode allows multiple feeds. However on larger screens all feeds will be visible.
FanKit also supports tabbed navigation, under which you can house the Timeline or Card Display. Tabs can also house carousels of video clips for example.
Where can it be deployed?
FanKit can be deployed in several ways, with the Embed URL provided inside M/IC Studio on a per-project or pre-event basis.
Loaded directly from its unique URL (URL is available in Studio > Timeline)
iFramed into your environment (Embed code is available in Studio > Timeline)

How do I setup and control FanKit?
FanKit is setup and controlled by Monterosa / Interaction Cloud. Using Studio you can configure the app, then create content that is either triggered live or scheduled. Each M/IC project is associated with an instance of the FanKit app, which is also hosted and served by the platform.
