  • Undertaking the Journey: A new way of learning Spacemaker.

    If there is one thing 2020 and 2021 have taught us here at Spacemaker, it is that the reality of remote working demands a new way of thinking. The high-energy, hands-on, engaging workshops we used to do with our users had to be reinvented. So, how can we best teach all our users how to […]

    Our new Setup experience: Setting you up for success

    This month we said goodbye to one of the last relics from Spacemaker’s earliest iteration, the old version of Setup.
