Major Productivity Enhancements

  • The iQ3 Meeting Templates are now managed independently from the traditional iQ3 Workspace for virtual reality design collaboration and no longer display on the Calendar view. 
  • iQ3 Workspaces spawned from immersive Meeting Templates will automatically time out after 60 seconds if no users are in the workspace. 
  • Both public and private immersive meetings are now displayed on the Dashboard and Calendar view. Private virtual reality meetings are displayed only with the Meeting name and start and end time. 
  • Users can utilize either the Global Coordinate System or Internal Coordinate System when moving components and can switch back and forth as needed. 
    • The Global Coordinate System is fixed to the virtual environment. 
    • The Internal Coordinate System is fixed to the part, meaning a rotation of the part by 45 degrees will also rotate the Internal Coordinate System by 45 degrees. 
    • This allows the user to move components more precisely along axes/planes that may not align with the Global System. 
  • Administrators of the iQ3 Dashboard can now broadcast collaboration request and messages to improve the communication of updates, help resources, scheduled updates, etc. 
  • A basic Analytics framework is also being constructed and will be rolled out in phases. In this release, current user status (active, logged in, etc.) and last login time can be tracked via the Dashboard. Utilization of the Meeting Templates can also be tracked.
