What happened at the last group?

The programme for the 2017 user group combined updates and demos from the team at Zengenti with workshops teaching best practice. There was also plenty of free time put aside to speak to staff about all aspects of your day-to-day use of Contensis. On the day many users made the most of the opportunity to get advice straight from people who developers Contensis.  You can see the agenda we followed below.
