Since we released ThingLink 360 last year, our team has gathered tons of feedback from many user groups. We’re excited to share 5 enhancements to ThingLink 360, based on your feedback.
We have more enhancements planned as ThingLink 360 continues to grow more powerful in 2018. We take user requests very seriously, and they play a big role in what we create. Feel free to drop us a note with requests for new features for ThingLink 360, and be sure to stay tuned to this blog for news as we release new features based on feedback from our community.
Did you know that there are over 6,500,000 images, videos, and 360s on ThingLink? Not only is ThingLink the place to create interactive masterpieces, it’s also the place to find inspiration from others. Now, not only can you search our database of images, videos, and 360s, you can also filter your results to find exactly what you’re looking for! Use this feature when searching for that perfect content to remix.
ThingLink users have made projects on everything from art history to zoology. Enter a search term in the box at the top of ThingLink.
Now, with the new search filter, select the type of media you’re looking for. Use the check boxes for images, videos, 360 images, and 360 videos to determine your results.
When tagging 360 images, often the hardest step is the photography, or finding images to tag. Before creating your own images, use the search to see what other ThingLink users have already created. If a user marks their image as public, you will be able to use the remix function to copy their image into your account. Delete the previous person’s tags and get started on your own creation!
While the most popular ThingLink format is standard images, there are also thousands of videos and 360s already tagged. If you’re new to tagging videos and want some guidance, searching without a filter may leave the video results lost in the crowd. Filter to get exactly what you’re looking for the first time without too much sifting.
Now that you’re acquainted with the new search features, get searching and start tagging! If you want to learn more about our advanced features for join us for an upcoming webinar.
