Multi-User Follow Up Updates
We have updated Multi-User Support with some final features. These features are available behind the “?flag=multi-user” feature flag, which will be removed in the coming weeks.
These changes include::
Ability to add an existing Concept3D user to an Enterprise Tour Builder account
Notification email to users newly created in User & Roles
Ability to download CSV report of all revisions available for Enterprise accounts with the feature enabled.
To add an existing C3D user to an Enterprise Tour Builder account,
Go to Account Settings
Click on “Add New User”
Input the user information, using the email on file for the C3D user
Select a role for the user
Click on “Create User”
A “User Already Exist” notification will appear
Click on “Give Access”
The “User Already Exists” notification that appears when linking an existing Concept3D user to a Tour Builder account.
Automated Testing: Tour (Styles) - Primary Color
We continue to improve our automated testing suite, which now includes a test to confirm that setting the Primary Color in the Styles tab works.
October 8 & 13, 2021
We updated some of the user interface styles in Tour Builder:
Hotspots capitalized in Tour Builder to reflect its status as a premium feature
Hotspot titles and icons are now spaced more apart in the Hotspots list
A generic error page appears when Mapbox errors occur. This helps us remove unnecessary references to Mapbox and points users directly to us for support.
Hotspots Enhancements (Beginning of 2.0)
Hotspots 2.0, the next phase of Hotspots, aims to update the feature based on client feedback, market research, and to make Hotspots accessible to keyboard and screen reader users. This is just the first of a multi-release project, but for now, included with this update are:
Ability to set Hotspots to display in-world or out-of-world. The out-of-world options makes Hotspots accessible by giving clients and users the tools and ability to interact with Hotspot content
VR mode is now limited to mobile where stereoscopic display is primarily used. Desktop users will still have access to full screen mode for 360° Tours.
The max length of Hotspot titles is now 80 characters. Most clients are under 80 characters, and we will work with the handful of clients that have Hotspots with titles over 80 characters. This limit helps ensure a good user experience for us, for clients, and for end users.
The new Hotspot Display setting appears alongside all the other Hotspot settings when creating or editing a Hotspot.

(ADA) Ability to Keyboard Tab through Hotspots
Hotspots are now accessible via the keyboard for all 360° Tour users. If you use a keyboard or screen reader to access content on the web, you will now be able to use your usual keypresses to access Hotspot content.
Note: Some content such as audio transcripts may still be inaccessible due to the nature of integrating dynamic content into a 3D, virtual world. We have an update in the coming weeks which will make all content accessible.
Keyboard users will be snapped to the Hotspot they tabbed to and focused on.
Account/Users Dropdown Style Update
All account related menu items are now grouped together in the account/user dropdown.

Restricted 360° Tours
360° Tours can now be made private and only accessible by authorized users. These users have to be a part of the account that owns the tour and will be presented with Concept3D’s login screen when accessing the tour. This is the first standalone advanced feature for 360º Tours, reach out to your Client Success Manager for details and pricing.
