We are planning our first in-person Community happy hours this year, and the top two location candidates are: CHICAGO!&NEW YORK!For those who are able to attend in-person events in either of these areas, please fill out the poll to cast your vote on when would be best for us to host it.

It was great to hear real-world experiences from OpenSpace customers Brasfield & Gorrie, U.S. Engineering, and Commodore Builders in our recent ENR webinar. Participants sent us a number of questions, so we wanted to share the answers with our entire community. Also, you can watch a recording of the webinar here. Q: I found the OpenSpace.ai Construction App in the app store. Is there a cost for downloading and using it?You can download OpenSpace Basic from the app store for no cost.

Hi OpenSpace Community! I’m Rachel and I run social media at OpenSpace. April is Earth Month and I wanted to open up a call for stories Have you been part of a project that has been exceptionally sustainable? Is your team raising awareness about the environment in new and innovative ways? Do you have work processes, methods, or materials that are focused on being more eco-friendly or energy efficient?If you answered yes to any of these questions, or if you just have great stories in general that highlight environmental awareness in the construction industry, we’d love to hear about them! Bonus points if they’re OpenSpace-related but it’s definitely not mandatory. Please submit your stories through this very quick 2-question form (same link as above). I am hoping to feature your stories on our social media platforms and in the Community on Earth Day, April 22nd. We want to celebrate by showing how our users are pushing the industry to be more environmentally friendly.Note: This

REMINDER: We will be holding the ClearSight 1st Anniversary Webinar Wednesday on March 23, 11 AM PST (a week from today)! Our team decided on this topic after we saw lots of questions pop up about ClearSight here in the Community. You can see a good sampling of that in this thread. So if you’re one of our Community members with remaining ClearSight questions or you just want to learn more about it, make sure to REGISTER FOR THE WEBINAR NOW! March 23 is also the exact date when we held our ClearSight ENR webinar in 2021, so it REALLY will be ClearSight’s birthday! To celebrate this milestone and make it a bit more fun, we will announce a couple of ways to win prizes during the webinar. The biggest prize we will be giving away is an OpenSpace-branded Ember travel mug! So come join us at the webinar, learn about ClearSight, connect with each other and make new friends, and maybe you can also walk away with a brand-new Ember mug
Collaboration with Field Notes just got easier with photo markups! Mark your location on your floor plan and add a Field Note. Call attention to specific issues in the photo, sketch the correct orientation, or just make your point more obvious. These markups can be seen on mobile and on web. Annotate photos out in the filed and then the office can confirm that they got the message. Please share thoughts here after you have tried the photo markup capability!
In case you missed it, we shared the growth of OpenSpace on our social media this week. OpenSpace is being used in over 70 countries, which is roughly 40% of the world! I wanted to make sure to post this here, because this wouldn’t be possible without the OpenSpace Community. You all have made this growth happen, so THANK YOU I can’t wait to continue the growth of this Community -- imagine how amazing it would be to be connected to all these OpenSpace users across the world If you know of AEC professionals you want to be part of this innovative global network we’re building, make sure to invite them to join the OpenSpace Community now or refer them so we can get in touch with them!
Hello OpenSpace Community!As we continue growing, we are starting to plan out different events to get you all connected and meeting each other. We especially want to hold regional events so you can network with those near you.In order to do this, we need your help!We need to know where you all are located, so we can coordinate events around your locations.All you have to do:Please make sure COUNTRY is filled out in your Community profile. Adding CITY would also help, but at a bare minimum, we are only asking for COUNTRY. NOTE - The CITY field is actually private so only you and the OpenSpace Community Managers (who are planning the events) can see your city. Other Community members won’t have access to that information should you choose to include it.From there, our team can gather the data to see what events in what locations would make most sense So essentially, completing the COUNTRY (and even CITY) field in your Community profile is like adding a vote for an event where you are

Hi Everyone,I work with 2 screens (how does anyone not these days!) and often when walking the site virtually in openspace, I wish that I could have my plan on one screen and the 360 photos on another. Does anyone know how to make this happen? See the photo above with the plan area in red and the 360 photos in blue. Unfortuantely I can’t figure out how to open the plan in it’s own seperate window. Please let me know if you knwo how to do this.Often when trying to look at different areas of the site I have to expand the plan to click the area I want and then minimize it to see the photos. It would save a lot of time if I could have them on two seperate screens.

I recently was using the 360 photo capture on my project in NYC and was approached by one of our third party inspectors asking about OpenSpace. I showed him how to use the app and some examples of the captures on the job and when looking into use cases and pricing, it seems like the target users in mind are owners, GCs, and trades. Has there been any thought to inspection agencies utilizing OpenSpace?
