Deep Link Within a Matterport Space

Some Matterport Spaces can be large. Consider this commercial office workspace.

While you can easily change the Start Position, sometimes you want instead is to send someone to a very specific spot and point-of-view to communicate something about the place. For architecture and engineering, you may want to communicate an issue that needs to be resolved before the next phase of construction.

Fortunately, it is very easy to create a deep link to send someone to a specific spot within a Matterport Space.

 

Create and Share a Deep Link

First, open a Matterport Space with a desktop or laptop and start exploring.

Press the U button on your keyboard. Next, press the copy button that appears in 3D Showcase.

Now paste the URL into an email, text, or wherever else you want. Use Control+V (Windows) or Command+V (Mac) to easily paste into another program.

The URL can be quite long and difficult to understand. So it is a good idea to rename the link.

For Gmail, highlight and press Control+K (Windows) or Command+K (Mac) to turn it into a link. Next, click once on the link and then press Change.

Rename the link text to something more legible and press OK.
