You asked… we listened and then we delivered!
That’s right! Pop Up hotspots are finally here! ahhhh the joy!
From today, pop up hotspots for images, text and video will be included in all our active My360 subscriptions – at no extra cost and for all to enjoy! Awesome right! So let’s get stuck in straight away and see how you can add your text pop up to your virtual tour too!
For the more advanced:
Go to your tour editor (or create a new tour if you don’t already have one)
Click on the blue ball and drag it to your screen
Choose the “Info” hotspot (this one is used for text & images)
Activate “3d” (not required, but it looks better)
Change the icon (if you want, we offer a full library of icons, or you can upload your own)
Add the text to your hotspot – this can be anything and it is fully customisable to make it look good
Click save & publish
Here’s the same tutorial but now with images:

2. Click on the blue ball to drag it to your screen:
3. Choose the “Info” hotspot (this one can be used for text & images)

Remember if you want a transparent background – always choose “original” when choosing the image. Furthermore, we recommend the icons be 50 x 50 or smaller.
