Admins are top-level stakeholders in Opus and can manage across all locations. They have full permissions across the Opus Dashboard and Opus Training mobile app. Learn more about admins here.


Managers and trainees are able to assign content (courses, modules, files, check-is) to employees. Trainees are notified of a new assignment in the mobile app once assigned. Learn more about assigning courses here.


Courses are individual lessons that train employees on one specific topic. Courses are assignable my Admins and Managers and can be graded for accuracy and completion. Courses also allow for award certification once completed. Learn more about courses here.


Employees are anyone employed by your organization in Opus. Employees encompass all user types (Admins, Managers, and Trainees).


Any company assets (PDF’s, images, videos) that are uploaded into Opus and shared with employees. Learn more about files here.


There are four types of content that you can upload into Opus: Modules, Courses, Check-ins, and Resources. Everything created or uploaded into Opus lives under "Content". Learn more about your library here.


Locations are the names and physical addresses of your organization. All users in Opus must be tied to a location. Having employees tied to individual locations allows you to automatically assign content to trainees depending on which location they work at. Locations can then be grouped into Regions, Brands, or Franchises. Learn more about locations here.


Managers in Opus have access to both the Opus Dashboard and the Opus Training mobile app and are assigned to specific locations. Managers can edit and assign content to Trainees, send messages, and have limited permissions compared to Admins. Learn more about managers here.


Modules are a series of content (courses, check-ins, documents) that map out to a larger training journey in Opus. Modules are usually created to be completed over the duration of a training period and cover a variety of topics. A popular use case for a module in Opus is New Hire Onboarding. Learn more about modules here.


Roles—or job titles—are essential within Opus. Roles allow you to segment employees by their job title, automatically assigning any training as soon as they sign up. Employees in Opus can be tied to multiple roles. Learn more about roles here.


Trainees only have access to the Opus Training mobile app. Trainees must be assigned to a location(s) and given a role(s). Learn more about trainees here.


Check-ins allow you to test and grade trainees once they've completed a course. Once a Check-in is facilitated by a Manager or Admin, they will receive a badge of certification in Opus.
