Exporting Annotations from Collections

Exporting Annotations from Collections

Annotations and Collections are a very powerful combination. You can use Collections to gather a quickly sharable list of 360s, walk through them and annotate them, and then use the Annotation Export feature to generate a standalone file (HTML, CSV, or XLSX) that links to all the Annotations in a Collection into a file. Each annotation in the file will open the annotation in the context of the Collection, and it’s now easily viewable/accessible by anyone you share it with, as long as they have a web browser:

Generating a immediately referenceable list of workitems from a walkthrough, or a list of issues that need to be addressed from some renderings is now a snap; any recipient can simply tap and is immediately transported into the specific point in the Collection, looking at the specific annotation. 

Exporting Annotations from a Collection 

  1. Collection Annotation Export is accessible from the Collection Details Page.
  2. Clicking on this opens the Export dialog, which you can scroll through. Any 360 that has an annotation will appear, with a collapsible list of each annotation. If a 360 does not have an annotation, it will not appear in this list.
  3. Tap the Export Annotations button and select the export format. 
  4. Click the link to download the generated file to your device.

For HTML and XLSX files, a thumbnail image of each annotation will also be generated; for CSV format it will not. 

Note that the act of exporting Annotations will set the Collection’s share link status to Active. If you disable the link, the annotation links won’t work until you enable the share link again. Similarly, if the Collection link is password-protected, any annotations that link into that Collection will require the password to view.
