Vieweet is a tool that allows you to create high-quality property tours quickly and with minimal difficulty or equipment. Vieweet allows you to create smooth and interactive virtual property tours that integrate seamlessly with your website, as well as with Smart Viewing, which allows agents to conduct virtual property viewings with one or multiple applicants at a time.
This guide will introduce you to the different features and functionalities of the Vieweet web platform to show you how to use each part of it and how to get started on creating your first virtual tours.
To create an account, you simply need to navigate to the Sign up tab on my.vieweet.com, before entering your personal details and the password you wish to use to access your account.
Once your account has been activated, you’ll be able to access it by entering your details into the Login tab.
If you forget your password, you can always reset it using the Forgot password? link on the login page. You will be prompted to enter your login email, to which a recovery email will be sent.
Using this, you will be able to set a new password and access your account.
The main dashboard consists of three parts:
Your Live Tours
View all your active tours.
Find and restore any tours that have been disabled or recently deleted.
Create a Tour
Click the button to start creating a new virtual tour.
Below, the gallery or list (depending on the way in which you have chosen to view your tours) will show all of your live tours and some important information for each of them. At a glance, you will be able to see:
(1 minute and 5 seconds)
The first tab, titled Your Analytics, will show the top-performing virtual tours in any given time, along with further information on views and where those views came from (i.e. country, device)
The second tab, titled Your Leads, will show information on the leads generated through this account’s virtual tours.
Both analytics pages can also be downloaded as CSV files for your records or for further analysis.
The left-most tab allows you to alter certain aspects of the virtual tour. You can set if you want to display the location on your tour(s), whether or not a tour automatically rotates or whether the tour begins to move through the property automatically, and you can also enable the lead generation form and integrate Google Analytics.
You can also set the language of the platform to English, French, Italian or Spanish.
Within each panorama the tripod cap can be hidden or covered up using a custom logo.
Custom logos can be enabled and uploaded in the ‘Your Branding’ tab to cover up these parts of each panorama in your Vieweet virtual tour.
This tab allows you to download all of the data that Vieweet has stored for your account, and you can also delete your account if it is no longer required.
This tab allows you to alter the following information - you simply need to enter the information you would like to add to each field, before clicking on Save changes.
This tab is where you will be able to change the password for your account. To do this, you must ensure that your password meets the requirements, before entering this password twice and confirming this change by clicking Save changes.
When you begin creating a new virtual tour, the first screen that you will see will prompt you to enter the details of the property for which you are creating the tour. Here, you will be asked to enter:
- The property address
- The type of property (i.e. apartment, house, commercial property etc.)
- Whether the property is furnished or unfurnished
- An optional reference code
- An option to display the virtual tour address to the viewers
By clicking on the location pin symbol in the Street field, you will also be able to accurately pinpoint and confirm the property’s position on a map.
Drag and drop your 360° images in the box or select them from a folder and click Upload 360° images. While you are waiting for the upload to be completed you can rename the room names by tapping on the title. When the upload is completed, press Link images.
If an image doesn’t show a green tick and is highlighted in red, something went wrong with uploading this panorama. You can retry this upload by clicking the white arrow in the middle.
The editor is where you will be able to view each image in your tour, making changes and alterations to these as required. This screen will give you an interactive view of exactly how your images link together to form your tour.
You can also label every image, as well as the floor or level of the property on which it can be found. An existing list with 30+ of the most commonly used labels will be prompted when you click on the box.
Can’t you find the room name in the list?
No problem, you can continue typing and add your custom label.
Add links to other images.
Add a still photo or other media to a 360° image to give an extra view of something not visible (e.g. gas meters).
Blur certain parts of an image, such as personal photographs or number plates, to be GDPR compliant.
Edit each image using one preset
or manually changing the contrast, brightness and saturation.
Add a note to your image, this could be useful information, a warning or URL.
Annotate certain part of the panoramas, either clarify something that may not be clear, to give the agent some additional information to share.
Double-check if all your images are connected via the link map.
After you have successfully uploaded all of the images you would like to include in your virtual tour, you can then start adding the links between images to create a clear path around the property that the viewer will then be able to follow. Click on the Link icon, double-click the part of the image on which you would like to add a link, before clicking on Confirm link position.
You can also re-order your images, in the thumbnail bar, by dragging and dropping them.
Confirming the link position will open a pop-up box that will ask you to confirm which image you would like this link to lead to. Once you have selected the relevant image, you will be prompted to add a return link to make sure that the path can be followed in both directions.
This is to eliminate human error and to ensure that the path that these links create for the agent or applicant to follow around the property can be followed in both directions.
If you have created a link that needs to be deleted, moved or altered in appearance in any way, you simply need to double-click on the link you would like to edit. This will open a pop-up box that will allow you to:
- Delete the selected link (from the Change destination tab)
- Change the icon that is displayed (see below)
- Customise the icon that is displayed (i.e. change the icon's colour / size)
You can use presets or you can edit your image manually.
If you choose to use the presets section you will see three tabs, one for each of the different types of preset:
Within each tab, you will find 6 individual presets, which you will be able to preview in the Image Editing box’s thumbnail by selecting them. You will be able to layer a preset from each tab on top of each other, although you do not need to use one from each.
You just need to layer the presets until you are happy with the edited image, before clicking Apply to finalise this edit.
If you chose to manually edit your images, you will be able to change the same three settings that you can edit using the presets menu. Instead of the previews of the 6 presets, however, you will see a slider for each setting. Each time one of these sliders is dragged to a new position, the image in the thumbnail will update. When you are happy with the settings you have selected, simply click on Apply to save these edits.
Blur parts of images by clicking “+ Add blur”, before selecting three or more points on the outline of the area that you would like to blur.
You’d be able to add as many blurs as you wish and once you are happy with the area(s) that will be blurred, click “Apply layer” to finalise this change.
You can create notes and add them to your images. Select the notes icon from the sidebar. Double click where you want to add the note.
Choose from three different types of note and customise their size to your needs:
Add a title and press “Add note”
You can upload 2D photos and media to your images. Select the image icon from the sidebar, double click where you want to add the 2D photo / media. Drag and drop your 2D photo / media or select from a folder.
Enter the title and press “Save changes”. The 2D photo / media will be uploaded - please note that depending on the size of the 2D image / media this might take up to a few minutes.
To further eliminate the chance for human error and to ensure that each tour is complete and that every part of the property is easily accessible, the Vieweet platform will now remind you if there are unlinked images.
From this screen, you will be able to view the connections between/among images at a glance, allowing you to once again double-check that the tour is complete and can be viewed in its entirety.
To set the starting image, click and drag the image you would like to use to the left-most position on the bottom bar. Once this has been set as the starting image, you will see a flag icon on the thumbnail.
Alternatively, you can click on the 3-dots menu in the thumbnails bar and select Starting image.
To set the best view, which is the starting point where the image starts when is opened, click 3-dots menu in the thumbnails bar and select Select best view. You can the view from side to side until you reach the view that you would like to start the tour on, usually pointing at the front door. Double-click where you want your starting point to be and confirm the position from the button above.
This is how your virtual tours will be viewed once shared with your customers.
The top bar will show the address of the property (if you have selected the option to display the address from the settings) and the room name.
The bottom left bar will give the option to open/close the thumbnails bar and go to Street View and Google Map (if you have selected the option to display the address from the settings).
From the editor, click the ‘Settings' icon, the second icon in the right-hand corner of the top bar. From here, select the ‘Branding’ tab before uploading your desired logo by either dragging and dropping the file into this field, or by selecting it from a folder. Once you have selected the logo you want to use for this tour, click 'Save changes’ to finalise these edits.
You can set a default logo for all of your tours from the settings menu. Here, you will find a tab titled ‘Your Branding’, which will enable you to upload, change and remove logos. You will be able to set one as the default, and either enable or disable the logos for all of your tours at once.
Deleting the tour from either the app or the web platform will delete the tour from the other, although you will be able to restore these from the web platform for a further 28 days. If you only wish to delete the tours from your phone to save space but you would like the tours to remain active, you can clear your tour cache from the app by clicking Side-menu > Settings > Clear all downloaded tours of my device.
From the ‘Your Live Tours’ tab on the dashboard, you can select the three dots in the top right-hand corner to display a drop down menu. Here you will have the option to either add or remove password protection for that tour, depending on what state the tour is currently in. Password protected tours will then display a small padlock in the bottom right-hand corner of the tour’s box in the ‘Your Live Tours’ tab on the main dashboard.
From the ‘Your Live Tours’ tab on the dashboard, you can select the three dots in the top right-hand corner to display a drop down menu. Here you will see the option to archive a tour, which will mean that the tour will no longer be in the ‘Your Live Tours’ tab and it will not be accessible using the Vieweet URL.
You can then unarchive that tour from the ‘Archived Tours’ tab by clicking the ‘Unarchive tour’ button on the relevant virtual tour.
In the ‘Archived Tour’ tab on the main dashboard, you will see a list of all tours that have been deleted in the previous 28 days. From here, you will be able to restore any recently deleted tour.
Currently, you have access to the beta version of all the Vieweet° features. In the next few months, once all of them will be finalised, we will offer a subscription to access the Pro features.
