Creating a new iFloorPlan.

  • To create an iFloorPlan, select New from the Control Panel.
  • Click Browse and select a floorplan image from your computer. Image must be a .jpg, .gif or .png. More information about the floor plan image here.
  • Click Upload to send the image.
  • Your floorplan loads into the floorplan space. Scale the floorplan image using the orange slider, and position it by click and dragging the image. You can position the floor plan anywhere on the stage.
  • Also on the stage is the picture box. This is the rectangle your photos will occupy. Scale it by using the green slider above, and position it by click and dragging the picture box.
  • Arrange the two elements to make the best use of the space. The layout can be edited later. Click Save layout when you are ready.
  • You have now set the layout for this iFloorPlan.
  • Click Browse and select your images for this property. Images must be .jpg. Select up to 20 images. If this is a multi level property, and you have separate floorplan images, upload images for this level only.
  • Make sure your image's dimensions are at least the minimum dimensions specified in the text under the file list in the uploader.
  • Click Upload to begin uploading your images. This may take a while depending on your internet connection and the number and size of your images.More information about images here
  • When your first image loads in the image space, an arrow will bounce onto your floorplan. Drag this onto the floorplan. To rotate the arrow to represent the camera and the camera's view, click and hold the green arrows. Release when in position.
  • Click Next. The next image appears and another arrow bounces onto the floorplan. Repeat the process for each image. You can go back and forth if necessary. When all images are loaded, a dialogue box will inform you of the next step.
  • Choose a client for this iFloorPlan. Click on the Client area (or Toolbox > Open client list). Select an agent and Save agent.
  • The name, phone number and email address can be edited for this iFloorPlan only, or, can be left with the default values for this agent.
  • Finally add the address for this property. The address is used to find this property on google maps.
  • At this point you are either ready to Preview and Publish your iFloorPlan, or you can add other information such as text or add some colour. Click on Toolboxto see the options.

Adding client logos, contact information and links.

Before you make an iFloorPlan for one of your clients, you can and should, use Manage clients to create a brand space for your clients - displayed in the Client area of every iFloorPlan.

To create a brand space for a client. click Clients in the Control Panel. If you have already started your iFloorPlan, you can access the Manage clients interface through Toolbox > Manage clients.

  • Click Add new client
  • Input a name (your reference) for the client. eg Ray White Northcote (this does not appear anywhere in the public realm, this is just your name, for your client.)
  • Add as much information as you want including: Contact name, Email address, Phone number and a URL for logo click-through, eg. your client's web site address. Be sure to include http:// before the www's when inputting the URL for any external links in iFloorPlan.
  • Save your new client's details. Any details you have entered and saved can be edited by clicking on your client's name in the Client list, editing the details and Saving the changes.
  • Next, you will be asked to add a logo. This is optional, but if there is no logo or this client, the iFloorPlan logo will display. You can upload a image (image can be .jpg, .gif or .png) and use the interface to scale the image and drag it into position within the space available.
  • Save the logo. Then click Close. You can upload another image (try again, and again and again), or click Done. That's it, that client is done.
  • Click done.
  • When making an iFloorPlan for your client, click in the Client area to open your list of clients. (Or choose: Toolbox > Open client list) Click on your client's name, click Save client, and that client's information will display with that iFloorPlan.
  • At this point, if you wish, you can edit the information in the Client area. eg. You may want to change the name of the contact agent. If you do so, it is just for the iFloorPlan you are creating. It will not change the information that you saved using Manage clients.

One more thing to remember. If you edit information in Manage Clients, you are editing the default information. Previously published iFloorPlans will not automatically show that default information. To make previous iFloorPlans display the new default information, go to the Control Panel and select Published. For each iFloorPlan you wish to update with the new default client information, click Edit. You need to do 2 things.

  • Open the client list by clicking on the logo, (or Toolbox > Open client list). Select your client from the list, the information in the client brand space will update. Save the client.
  • Preview and Update the iFloorPlan. The new details and/or logo will now display with that iFloorPlan.

NB. An iFloorPlan can be set to display with the client branding hidden.

    Running iFloorPlans from your domain

    iFloorPlan now offers an API to facilitate running your iFloorPlans using your own domain. ie www.yourdomain.com/view/2323

    Your clients will then see that this is your interactive floorplan product, and your competitors won't see the iFloorPlan URL and so easily work out that you are using iFloorPlan. This gives you the edge in you area.

    To purchase the API, contact us. When you have your API, you will receive instructions on what to do with it. It is very simple to use.


    Floorplan images must be either a .jpg, .gif or a .png.

    We recommend uploading quite a large floorplan image. A larger image can be scaled down to fit the space and maintain image quality.

    The maximum size a floorplan will display is 920 x 1000 pixels. Aim to make your floorplan's dimensions at least 1000 pixels in height or width.

    If you can control the exact size of your floorplan image using Photoshop or some other imaging software, upload the floorplan image as usual but don't scale it, just position it and Save. Your image will not be resampled and you may achieve optimum image quality.


    Images must be .jpg.

    Each level of an iFloorPlan can handle 20 photos.

    It is important that your image's dimensions at least match the dimensions of the image pane shown on the image pane and under the file list in the uploader. A typical size is 800 x 600 pixels.

    Before you upload your images, it is a good idea to name them sequentially. When you choose your images, they appear as a list in the uploader. If they are not in order, right click and choose 'by name'.

    To reorder your images, add new images or delete images after the original upload is complete, choose Toolbox > Organise images.
