Panorama and Web Standalone files created in Enscape can be managed via the Upload Management dialog within Enscape itself (accessed via the Enscape in CAD toolbar button ). They can also be further managed within the Uploads section of an Enscape Account, accessed via your web browser.
For clarity, there are two elements to managing Panoramas and Web Standalone files; the Manage Uploads dialog in Enscape itself and the Uploads area accessed via your Enscape Account.
Individual users can gain access to the Enscape License Center once they have been invited by their account administrator. The available menu options in the Enscape License Center will be limited to Uploads and Login Credentials for a user, which is not the case for an account administrator who has a wider range of account options to choose from. The functions that are available for everyone within the Enscape License Center’s Upload area allow the possibility to share, move, rename, and delete Panoramas and Web Standalone files, as well as create Panorama Galleries where multiple Panoramas from the same project can be linked together.
Once an account administrator has invited a user via the Enscape License Center’s User Management function and the user has set a password for the account, they will then be able to use the associated credentials to log in to their account via the Enscape Account window -> Account (Login Area) button.
User Login in the Enscape Account window
A user can then proceed to export and upload to the cloud both Web Standalone files and Panoramas. This is achieved via the Upload Management dialog within the Enscape software itself. A user can then further manage these files created when logged into their account in Enscape, via the Enscape License Center’s Uploads area where the functions listed above are accessible.
This means that for a user to be able to see those files that have been uploaded when they were logged in, the user will need to be logged in to their account via the Enscape Account window. Additionally, in the Upload Management dialog, only those files that have been uploaded when they were not logged in will be shown.
Finally, it’s worth noting that access to Enscape Accounts, and therefore access to the Uploads area, is not available to Trial users (and Students/Educators purchased prior to February 07, 2023).
The Upload Management dialog in Enscape
If you are using a Floating License and have a user account associated to it, but at some point in time have uploaded Panoramas and Standalone exports without being logged in to that account, Enscape now provides you the option to migrate these previously uploaded files to your user account.
To be able to do this, you will need to be logged in to your user account as set out above. Once you are logged in, open the Upload Management dialog window, and click on the icon at the top right corner of the dialog window as highlighted in the following screenshot. This will open another dialog informing you as to how many Panoramas and Web Standalones are available for migration and requesting you migrate all of these, or not. Once migrated, they will be available in the online Upload Manager, as shown below.
ATTENTION: This is a non-reversible operation meaning it is not possible to migrate the uploaded panoramas “back” out of your Enscape account. At the same time, we do not change the URLs of the Panoramas / Web Standalones associated with these files meaning previously communicated URL’s will still function.
Once your account administrator has invited you to set up an account and you have set a password for that account, log in to the Enscape Account and then select the Uploads option from the drop-down menu available at the top right-hand side of the page.
An account administrator will see the following menu options:
Enscape Account showing the Menu options for an account administrator, including the 'Uploads' option
Whereas, a user who has been added by the account administrator and has then logged in to the Enscape License Center will have less menu options and will, by default after logging in, be taken directly to the Uploads folder.

Notice that there is a Type column for each item listed and there are three Types of objects that can managed:
In our example, the top level is made up of all Type ‘Folder’.
If we click on one of these Folder items it will show the contents of that folder.
So, by clicking on the folder named 14374_002-BBRP this will result in its contents being displayed:
Contents of a Folder
As you can see, the one item in the folder is of Type ‘Panorama’. From here, you can directly click on it to open and view the Panorama itself in a new browser tab / window. The same process is applied where a Type ‘WebStandalone’ file may be listed.
There is no limit to how many items you can place inside a Folder.
Note, that you can also add another folder within a folder via the ‘New Folder’ button to create sub-folders.
Click the black arrow button at top left to return to the Parent Folder.
As well as the New Folder button there is always a Content Menu (meatball menu) option available for each item, no matter what Type the item is:
New Folder and Context Menu buttons
This Context Menu is accessed via the 3 dots button (meatball menu) and provides the following options:
The Context Menu
Clicking on the Share Options button will show the following popup:
You can either use the Copy button to copy the URL which can then be pasted into an email or document.
Or, you can send the URL link directly to an email address by adding the recipients email address and clicking the Send Link button.
In cases where you have a previously shared an item, but want to quickly limit the access to that item, you can then click the Generate new Link option, which will show the following message:
Generate a new link
Click the Generate button to finalize the change of the URL. You should notice that the URL changes and a small notice will be shown in green text stating ‘New link created!’ which confirms the change was successful.
Generation of a new link was successul
This function will help you to manage access to Panorama and Web Standalone files you have previously shared.
Selecting the Rename option provides a dialog to allow the renaming of a file. This field can not be left empty.
Rename an Item
Once filled out, click the Rename button to complete the process.
Selecting the Move option will result in a dialog opening where the whole folder structure the user has created will be displayed. This allows you to select the location you’d like to move the item to. The item you are wanting to move is always shown in bold text.
Move item dialog
The top level in the folder structure is the folder named ‘/’.
Once you’ve chosen the new location from the list, the Select Folder button will turn orange, meaning its now available to click on. Click on it to complete the process and the folder structure will be changed accordingly.
Lastly, the Delete option will prompt you to confirm deletion before proceeding to remove the selected item completely.
Auto Contrast Settings
In a case where a user is deleted and the license rights removed, or if a user lost access to their machine, the deletion of Panoramas from that user account can be requested by the account admin directly to Enscape at email@example.com.
