New: SharePoint spaces 360° image tours with annotations

New SharePoint Feature

From Microsoft Corporation

MC217384, Stay Informed, Published date: Jun 26, 2020

We are adding a 360° tour web part that allows authors of SharePoint spaces to select multiple 360° images, link them together, and add annotations to each image.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 65072.

When this will happen

  • We will roll this out to Targeted Release tenants in mid-July 2020.
  • We will gradually roll this out to all tenants from mid-to-late July 2020.

How this will affect your organization

SharePoint spaces 360° image tours with annotations provides the ability to use 360° images to document and share information about physical spaces in immersive or browser-based mixed reality.

Space authors can add annotations to 360° images to highlight places and important objects as well as add links between images to allow users to virtually experience the space. Annotations can include text, images, videos, files (e.g. Office documents and PDFs), and links to other 360-degree images in the tour.

These 360° tours can be used for many scenarios including onboarding and training new employees by familiarizing them with key company locations they cannot visit in person; documenting and collaborating on a virtual representation of physical spaces to plan for updates and optimizations; and educational scenarios such as virtual field trips.What you need to do to prepare

All existing SharePoint spaces functionality will continue to work without changes.

Documentation for your users will be available soon; we will update the post when it is available.
