Use the Locations tab to dive into the details of each individual location you’ve licensed. This is your library of virtual content to explore, share, and customize!
The Locations tab defaults to give you a library overview of each of your virtual tours, organized alphabetically. Search by specific name or by category. Select the virtual tour thumbnail to open up the Location Details page. Adjust the name, address, or contact info, and even upload a new thumbnail.
The Locations Details page also gives you a list of tabs that are going to be key to remember! The tabs labeled Virtual Tours and SharePages give you all the links you'll need to share and codes to embed virtual tours on websites, blogs, emails, social media, and anywhere else you can think of.
The Virtual Tours tab show you a large thumbnail that display All Virtual Tours. Use this link to pull the full virtual tour Share Page, including all individual scenes. Below that, you will see a breakdown of all the scenes that location tour has. In this example restaurant, we have the Main Entrance and Patio. If you want to share one individual scene, click the thumbnail for that scene.
A lightbox appears to give you a preview of the scene/tour, and a few options.
- Share: Share Page link for social media, emails, proposals, and general outreach.
- Embed: Unique embed codes to include a Threshold viewer display within a webpage or blog post.
- Video Download: Download an mp4 video of the virtual tour to share on Instagram or elsewhere. Note: mp4 videos are not interactive, and as such analytics cannot be tracked.
- Settings: Change the title of the scene.
Under the Share Pages tab, you'll have the ability to create custom Share Pages. These are a quick and easy way to customize a virtual tour by including only the relevant scenes you want, and the ability to add Calls to Action or specific contact details. Click the blue 'Add Custom Share Page' to try it out.
Here is an example with a custom URL name, CTA, and the Patio scene. You can share these custom pages or embed them onto a site or blog using the corresponding tabs.
The last tab on the Location details page is Analytics, where you can view a breakdown of that individual location's analytics: the total overall views of that virtual tour, the engagement you are getting, and the number of times the virtual tour for this location has been watched all the way through.
The last important feature in the Locations tab is the ability to add locations that do not have a virtual tour yet. Back in the library view, click the blue button "Add Location."
This prompts a search bar where you can enter the location you want to add (Powered by Google.) If you have trouble finding the location, try removing some search terms or adding the city name. You can also select 'Create New Location' and enter the location details and address on your own.
To remove locations from your dashboard: find the location in your library and select the thumbnail to open up the Location Details page. Below the list of tabs on the left, you'll see a grey "Deactivate" button. Select this button if you're sure you'd like to remove that location from your Locations library.
Now that you've got your Locations tab understood, let's check out the Maps tab!
