How to Create an iGUIDE

This article is here to explain how to create an iGUIDE.

In order to create an iGUIDE, you must be an Operator or Sub-account in the Portal.

  • Log into the iGUIDE Portal and click on the +Create iGUIDE tab.

Note: If you do not see the "Create" option on your iGUIDE Portal page, then this indicated you are not set up as an Operator. Please ensure you are logged in to the invited Operator Account, or contact Support for additional assistance.

  • The process of creating an iGUIDE can be broken down into the following steps:

Step-By-Step Instructions

Select one of the 3 options that reflect the industry your property falls under:

  • Residential

  • Commercial

  • Insurance & Restoration

If you are uncertain please see: Property Industries.

Step 2: Choose your iGUIDE Package

  1. Choose the iGUIDE Package.

  2. Choose any Paid Add-ons.

Step 3: Enter a Property Address

Step 4: Add Agent Branding

  1. From the Search for a Banner field, start typing the first name, last name, or email of the agent to select the appropriate agent.

Step 5: People

  1. Choose who will receive the iGUIDE and who can edit the iGUIDE.

  2. After clicking on the blue Edit button to the right of this title, it will open up options for automatically selecting the email as the iGUIDE Manager, All iGUIDE Editors and All emails from the agent’s banner.

  3. Under iGUIDE Report Subscribers, uncheck any box that is not required.

  4. Enter any additional emails for the iGUIDE Report to be sent to in the Enter email address to add someone field.

  5. Under the Editors section, add the emails of any editors to this iGUIDE. NOTE: This may include the photographers or anyone related to the real estate agent, the realtor themselves or, members of their marketing team or administrative team.

  6. Under the iGUIDE Analytics Subscribers, the same automatic checkboxes are available here as for the iGUIDE Report Subscribers. Check any box that is required.

  7. Enter any additional emails in the Enter email address to add someone field.

Step 6: Upload Data

Windows 11 might not allow you to drag and drop your export file, and you will have to click on the box and manually select your exported stitch data file.

  • Here is where stitch data and/or images can be uploaded.

  • These areas are not mandatory for the creation of the iGUIDE.

  • If the stitch data and/or images are absent then the iGUIDE URL can still be created.

  1. Drag and drop exported stitch data into the Upload Stitch Data field.

  2. Drag and drop gallery images into the Upload Images field.

Advanced Options

  • There are advanced options available as well that include the ability to edit the iGUIDE Viewer before creating the completed iGUIDE URL.

  • This will save a step in having to create the URL and then go back in and make any necessary changes.

  • Note: Newly created iGUIDE URL links are instantly indexed by Google.

  • These edit functions are the same ones available on the Edit Default View page within each iGUIDE.

  1. Click on the arrow icon to the right of the title Advanced Options.

  2. Check anything that you require.

  3. Once satisfied with all available options, click the blue Create iGUIDE button in order to complete the process.
