Business subscribers can use Ricoh Theta cameras to capture 360° photos and post them directly to Tasks or Hyperlinks on plans. These photos have a gyroscopic viewer where you can scroll and pan throughout the photo. Although we don't support non-Ricoh Theta 360 cameras, photos from non-ricoh theta 360 cameras can still be uploaded to Fieldwire through the web.
If it is uploaded as a '360 photo', it will have a gyroscopic viewer. Using 360° photos in Fieldwire is a great way to give more depth and detail to your photos.
How to upload a 360° Photo
On a Plan
Open a plan on the 'Plans' tab. Choose the 'Hyperlink' tool, and choose the 'Camera' option. Place the camera link on the plan, then choose '+Add 360 Photo':
Note: 360° photos will remain accessible via hyperlinks in plans that are exported from Fieldwire.
In a Task
Open a task from the 'Tasks' tab or from a plan, and choose the attachments icon. Then select the '360 photo' option:
From there, upload your 360° photos to the task! These will lead to the gyroscope viewer.
Note: 360° photos are included as live-links in task reports!
On the 'Photos' tab:
Go to the 'Photos' tab, then select '+New photo'. Then choose to add a '360 photo'.
Tip: You can retroactively add your 360° photos to tasks. Select a photo, then choose 'Actions', and 'Attach to a task'. Enter the task title and choose 'Attach photo(s)' or add the photo directly to the task itself using the 'Existing Photos' option
