The Prospect Library is the hub for managing your virtual reality experiences. From here you can save, export, delete, view and change settings per file. You can also schedule Meetings.

Steps to Launching your File
1. Import your file, it will automatically begin processing
2. The file will automatically save to your library
3. Click "View in VR" to launch your file into VR, or first adjust your settings in the right panel
Persistence Across Sessions
When you interact with your file in Prospect by adding annotations, changing layers, sun settings, and more, those changes will persist across sessions for the specific project you have imported. This allows you to retain useful data from your VR sessions, as you can reference annotations in the future.
To reset markups and other in-VR settings, click the options button on the file in your library and select "Reset Markups". Alternatively, re-importing your file will result in a clean project being created.
Changing Prospect Settings Using the Right Panel
When you select a file in your library, a panel on the right will open with some settings you can set as default settings for this project, prior to launching the file.
You can also set default settings for all your experiences by going to the gear icon on the top right corner.
Scheduling Multiuser Meetings
With Meetings, you’ll be able to share the same virtual experience with others and make design decisions as one unified team, regardless of your physical location. Read more about getting started with Meetings here.
Alternatively, if you just want to export and share your VR experience with someone else without a Meeting, you can send them an .IVZ file. We dive deeper into that with
a simple step-by-step guide here.
