New Features in OPAS 9.25

OPAS Classic (OPAS Desktop) has several new features in version 9.25.  These include new program areas and elements within existing areas to help better manage the changes brought about by COVID and to enhance your use of OPAS.

Contact OPAS Technical Support to schedule your update.

The guides below use a new format.
Instead of voice narration, these videos use only typed instructions (think animated PDF). In this way you can scroll forward / back and pause to quickly find the content you need.  If your media player is set to auto-play, be sure to pause the video at the very beginning.

Media Area

New to OPAS 9.25 is the Media area. This offers a kind of hybrid between Events and the physical printed music in your Library. Like events, they can have repertoire and soloists. Like Library items, they can have catalog numbers and publishers. Media entries can be anything you need:

  • Live streams
  • Webcasts
  • Compilation videos
  • Archival concert recordings, and more…

Each guide will open a video in a new browser tab. Click “Pause” immediately to see the title page, then Play and/or scroll to find the information you need.

Address Book

Each guide will open a video in a new browser tab. Click “Pause” immediately to see the title page, then Play and/or scroll to find the information you need.

  • Attributes – create your own set of attributes (gender identity, travel preferences, etc.) and assign them to people in the Address Book
  • Rooms – Venues can now have Rooms within them. See how to assign Rooms to Venues and indicate Rooms used for Events in those Venues
  • New Fields – new fields added to the Address Book
