Use a Deep Link in your Mattertag 

"Deep links" allow you to append a link to a Mattertag from anywhere in your 3D model - this can be useful if, for example, you want to transport a user from the bottom of a staircase to the top (without making them manually "climb" the stairs in your guided tour).  

There are 2 ways to get a deeplink.

Instructions Option 1

  1. Play the Showcase where you want to create a deep link. 
  2. Navigate to the exact location inside your 3D model where you want users to go. 
    • In this particular example, that is at the top of the staircase. 
  3. Hit the "U" key on your keyboard. 
    • This can only be done on a computer (laptop or desktop) - this functionality doesn't exist on mobile. 
  4. In the window that opens in the top-right of the window, click COPY TO CLIPBOARD.
    • Alternatively you can highlight the URL and hit command + C (Mac) or Ctrl + C (PC)
