Introduction

Tags help highlight information in the 3D Workspace that is not visible in the 360° image by adding an extra description to the captured environment. The Tag can contain images, videos, documents, general files, or links to other sites. There is also the option of an iframe Tag that allows embeddable content to be displayed.

Pinning a Tag will add a callout that shows their description.
