The SIS team is excited to deliver the new tile based navigation in (Emory’s PeopleSoft student information system) along with many other enhancements provided in the software.

Each User Interface will be quite different from the current OPUS.  Below is a preview of an Administrator homepage with high level tips to navigation in the new OPUS.  These same navigation tips are consistent on all home pages including the Student homepage.  Familiar pages used by staff to perform their daily transactions are relatively unchanged, but navigation to those pages will be through tiles or the navigator both of which work to replace the old menus.  Please familiarize yourself with these quick tips to assist you during the transition. 

Homepages – Tile groupings based on the type of user interaction and access to OPUS.  Users may have access to multiple Homepages depending upon roles at Emory.  Choose Homepages through the drop-down menu at the top of the page.

Tiles – Collections of high-use pages to streamline navigating to those pages.

Navigator – Displays the menu folders and pages structured like that in previous version.  This is used to navigate to pages that may not be found within Tiles.

Admin_Homepage

Users will continue to utilize Favorites and Recent Places.  The initial presentation of the Homepage and Tiles is intended to streamline the navigation to the majority of OPUS pages used in a specific business process and other day-to-day operations.
