Loading a Session

To load a saved session, select the menu next to the Save button, and then select a session. The list of sessions includes those you have saved, as well as those saved by any other participants who are currently connected.

How Sessions are Saved and Restored

Each participant saves the session in their own local copy of the collaborative view package. Sessions are saved in the YourProjectName/Saved/SaveGames sub-folder.

Your current position and rotation is not saved.

You cannot modify a saved session or use the name of an existing saved session.

You cannot save and restore sessions while in VR mode.

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
