Ohyay allows participants to take elements with them by putting them in their backpacks. Usually, participants will take image elements. To allow a user to take an item, you can enable the "Takeable" property under the "Interaction" section.

Now, when a user hovers over the element, they will have the ability to take the element into their backpack by clicking the hand icon:

It can be useful to display items from a user's backpack. You can do this by setting up a Badge or using a Backpack Item.

To set up a Badge, add a Participant Video to your Room and then look for the "Badge from Backpack Tag" setting under the "Backpack" category:

Now, if an item in a participant's backpack is tagged with a matching tag (in the example above, the tag would be 'pet'), it will display on the participant. You can control the position of the badge using the "Badge Alignment" setting and the size using the "Badge Height" and "Badge Width" settings.

If you want to show the total number of items in a participant's backpack that match the tag, enable the "Badge Show Count" setting (this can be useful for things like Easter Egg hunts).

If you want to have even more control of how an item from a user's backpack is displayed, you can use a Backpack Item element:

This creates a new element that you can independently position and style that will display a backpack item with a specific tag. To use it, first pick the Participant Video whose backpack you want to target by setting the "Participant Element" property under the "Backpack" category:

Then you can set "Tag Filter" to specify one or more tags that can be matched (comma-separate multiple tags) and "Show Count" to display the count of items in the backpack that match.
