I have very little experience with computers. Will I be able to use Oprius?

Through usability testing we know our software is easy to use. We have people who do not regularly use computers work with Oprius, and observe how they use it. From these observations we designed Oprius to ensure it is easy for everyone, not just computer people, to use.

When you first log into your account you will be greeted with a short video to show you around the system, then you can watch other videos that introduce different aspects of the application.

If at any point you are unclear about what something does, you can always click the question mark at the top of the page to access our help system. You can also give us a call at 1-877-7-OPRIUS and we will be happy to answer your questions.

Do I have to manually enter all my Contact information into my new Oprius account?

Oprius can import Contacts from just about any source: Outlook, Palm, Mac Mail, Address Book, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, and many others. We also import generic Excel (CSV) and vCards which allows you to bring in contacts from just about anywhere.

Do I need to have my Contacts give permission (Opt-in) to be on my mailing lists?

Yes. Oprius offers an easy-to-use Permission Manager to keep track of which Contacts have given their permission to receive group mailings. It is important to ensure that your Contacts want to receive the Emails you are sending to them. Mailing them a Permission Request through Oprius will reassure them that their privacy is respected.

How can I enter my work or other schedules into Oprius?

To enter anything that happens on an ongoing basis, such as a work schedule or your child's soccer practice, you can create recurring Appointments or Tasks. Oprius will then automatically add these dates to your Calendar or Task List for you.

Can I add people who visit my website to my Oprius Contact list?

If you have your own website, you can use our Lead Capture Widget to allow visitors to your site a way to provide their contact information. All you need to do is paste the block of code from the Lead Capture Widget page into your web-page.

Once you do that, this widget will show up on your web-page allowing visitors to submit their names, contact information and an optional note to you. As soon as you get a response, it will show up on your Home screen in Oprius, where you will get an option to approve or reject each new lead or Contact.

Is it possible to customize parts of the application to fit my needs and my particular business?

Yes. You can customize your Groups and Sources and create unlimited Custom Fields.

Custom fields let you record whatever additional information is most important for you to know about your Contacts.

Groups are a common set of "baskets" shared by your Contacts, Tasks, Calls and Appointments. These can be customized to match the way you organize things.

Sources allow you to set where a lead came from, using a drop-down menu.

There are also a number of other preferences that can be changed to fit your needs better.

Can I set reminders to help me remember my appointments?
