Opus 2 is pleased to announce its new release of the Opus 2 platform. This release includes a number of quality of life changes.

Users can now use Navigation arrows to jump between visible work product on a document.

Other Improvements

User Experience

Throughout the platform, we have made changes to various dialogues to improve the language and readability of any on-screen instruction; these include ensuring that drop downs and menu selects are resizable and stay clear and readable, even on smaller monitors. 

System Administration

In an effort to bring user management into one location, System Admins can now resend registration links for new users in bulk from the System Admin Users tab. 


Continuing our dedication to providing you with a secure platform, we have also made improvements to general security measures within the platform. 


To bring consistency to the user experience, export settings on the Documents tab and Transcripts tab are preserved, depending on the page being used. This will ensure that any downloaded content matches the users' expectations - regardless of any settings they may have changed elsewhere in the platform.
