Exporting Links and Location Data

(Note: This is available only to users on the Pro plan)

You can Export a list of Share links or Collection share links to CSV using the Bulk Actions Bulk Export feature. This allows you to use Momento360 share links in other applications (e.g. mapping applications); the export will also include GPS lat/long/altitude data from the images if present. Click here to see the exported fields.  

Export Share Links

The bulk export function allows you to download a CSV of all the active share links for a Folder or set of Folders and 360s, with their name, the original uploaded filename, URL for preview image, and location data (latitude, longitude, altitude).

(Note: This only exports active share links; if a 360's share link is disabled, it will not be exported.)

Here's how:

1. Select the Folders and Items containing the links you want exported. (You will choose whether to include nested folders or not in a later step).

2. Click the "Export Links to CSV" action. It will bring up an options modal:

3. Choose the Link Options you want for all your links. These options will be set for every link that is generated. Click on the "Link Options" title to trigger a popup guide for each option; for a more thorough explanation of all the options, click here for an explanation of each option

If you want to include items in nested folders, click the "inculde items in sub-folders" options. 

4. Once you're ready, click the "Export Links" button. After a brief pause, you will be prompted to downloaded the exported CSV (the following is what it looks like on OS X Firefox):

5. Choose to open or save the CSV. You're done!

Exported Fields

The exported CSV contains the following columns:

  • name: The current name or caption of the 360; e.g. "Living Room"
  • original filename: The name of the uploaded file, including the file extension; e.g. "DSCN0020.jpg"
  • link: The URL for the share/embed link for that 360
  • latitude: The latitude (in decimal) of the image (if present in image metadata)
  • longitude: The longitude (in decimal) of the image (if present in image metadata)
  • atltiude: The altitude (in meters) of the image (if present in image metadata)
  • preview_img_link: URL for a static thumbnail image of the 360  

Export Collection Share Links

For Collections, users can choose to export a CSV that includes a share link to the Collection, but opened at each individual item in the Collection. This differs from the individual share links in that this generates a list of links, all to the current Collection, but which open each component 360.  Fields also include a URL for each item's preview image, as well as GPS location data (latitude, longitude, altitude) suitable for display within mapping or other applications.

What's the difference? The main difference is that this is a Collection share link, not an individual share link, so viewers can still see all the other items in the Collection. It has other traits, too, see " When to Choose Link Share vs Collection Link Share" below. 

If you want to bulk activate and export share links for all the individual items in the Collection individually (not as part of a Collection), you will need to move the Collection items into a Folder, and use the Bulk Activate/Bulk Export features described above. 

Here's how to export a Collection's contents as a CSV of share links:

First, make sure you've enabled this Collection's Share Link. If you haven't, you'll see a reminder at the top of the CSV telling you to do so — if it's inactive, none of the links will work and will just report "Page not found."

From the Collection Details page:

1. Click on the Export to CSV button. That will open a window where you can set options and confirm:

2. Decide which options you want to set on the links. These options will be set for every link that's generated. Click on the "Link Options" title to trigger a popup guide for each option; for a more thorough explanation of all the options, click here for an explanation of each option

3. Once you're ready, click the "Export Links" button. After a brief pause, you will be prompted to downloaded the exported CSV (the following is what it looks like on OS X Firefox):

4. Choose to open or save the CSV. You're done!

Exported Columns

The exported CSV contains the following columns:

  • name: The current name or caption of the 360; e.g. "Living Room"
  • original filename: The name of the uploaded file, including the file extension; e.g. "DSCN0020.jpg"
  • link: The share/embed link to this Collection which opens to that 360
  • latitude: The latitude (in decimal) of the image (if present in image metadata)
  • longitude: The longitude (in decimal) of the image (if present in image metadata)
  • atltiude: The altitude (in meters) of the image (if present in image metadata)
  • preview_img_link: URL for a static thumbnail image of the 360

When to Choose Link Share vs Collection Link Share

NOTE: The Collection share link CSV will include summary lines in the header as well as a warning if the Collection link is not set to active.

Choose Collection Link Share if:

  • You want viewers to be able to access the rest of the Collection items from the share link
  • You need to password-protect link access. Since Collections are not tied to the underlying 360s, you can create an arbitrary number of Collections containing the same content, withough setting the underlying 360s share links to active, and set an access password on the Collection itself. This is unlike individual 360s, which can currently only have a single password for their share link.

Choose Link Share if:

  • You do not want viewers to access other items in your Collection from the share link
