TidyLabs interactive is a fun way for users to set off alerts in your stream and spend their points. Use them for jump scares, celebrations.

What can I do with TidyLabs Interactive?

TidyLabs Interactive is built into the Alert Box overlay. However, you will need to copy the new Alert Box URL and ensure that Interactive is selected, or just add "&interactive=1" to the end of your current browser source.
To activate an alert, the user types a chat command that you have created such as !wiggle, and providing they have enough points, will show the alert on your stream.
The current system allows on stream alerts containing any of the following:
  • Images & Animated Gifs
  • Images & Animated Gifs with Sound Alerts
  • Sound Alerts Only
  • YouTube Videos (with or without a custom start time)
