Applies to2020 Fusion
Body of the Article

The 360° Panorama feature in 2020 Fusion allows you to provide your clients with an immersive 3D experience that makes them feel like they are right inside their new design. Simply email a panoramic view link to your clients and they can open it in web browsers or on mobile devices (tablet or smartphone).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Only Perspective View can generate a 360° panorama.

Entering and choosing the email address that your 360° panoramic view is sent from

2020 Fusion can either send the 360° panorama email from the organisation’s (dealer’s) email address, or from a specific salesperson’s (user’s) address. 2020 Fusion requires either an organisation and/or salesperson email address to be able to send a 360° panorama email. The option chosen will apply to all 360° panoramas sent until the option is changed.

Using the general Organisation's (Dealer’s) email address

This option can be selected by clicking File > Options > Internet Settings:
