Admin. / General Clean-up Chores

This page is for OPAS Online – the companion page for the OPAS desktop application is here

Last updated: 05-June 02:00 PM EDT

During this involuntary disruption in our collective lives and schedules, many of you have mentioned using this time to catch up with OPAS Online administrative chores and digging a little deeper into the program.

The Guides below offer some suggestions and topics of good things for OPAS Online Administrators and Power Users to know.

These are all PDF guides simply because I can make those faster; I hope to make companion videos as time allows. As always, please send in topics you would like to see covered.

NOTE – some of the new features in OPAS Online 2.16 require a modest customization fee. Given our shared circumstances, you can order custom programming work now and no invoice will be sent until July 1 (or the start of your 20/21 fiscal year). If your orchestra uses OPAS and you want to add OPAS Online to enhance communication with your orchestra musicians, please talk to us about setting up your site now, and delaying payment until your next fiscal year.
