Mattertag Links + Quickstart = MSP opportunity
We’re getting some great feedback on this week’s launch of Quickstart and Mattertag Links, so thank you for the patience!
The combination of those two features also opens up what we think is an exciting opportunity for MSPs. We’d love to invite you to test this out, and see what you think....
Guest houses, casitas, and more.
Often, a property will include both the main house, and other separate buildings like guest houses. Until now, there wasn’t a good way to link the two models together. With Mattertag Links, you can. And with Quickstart, the new model will load FAST -- in the same window, so the user experience is nearly seamless.
In the model for the main house, just place a Mattertag on the door leading to the guest house. For the link, put in the public URL to the guest house. Add Quickstart to the end of the URL (&qs=1). The text can be "Visit the guest house." Save, and publish.
Now, load the main house in Showcase. Go to your Mattertag, and click the link. The guest house loads! You can use the same technique to allow the viewer to go back to the main house.
By using Quickstart and Mattertag Links together, you link more than just two models together. Scanning a 100,000 square foot conference hall? Just break it down into smaller models, and link them each together. Or scan each floor of a tall office-building, with each floor listed in a tag near the elevator. Or, scan the same model, day and night, and let the user change between them!
We’re still proving out the idea, but we wanted to offer it to you, and see what you came up with! Post your coolest ideas here!
