Opal sessions allow you to disconnect from apps when you want to take a break from them to focus on other tasks.
P.S. Tap on the "Toggle" triangle to see answers! Tap and hold to open links.
To start an Opal session
Click on the Opal mascot at the center of the Opal home screen. The Opal mascot will awake from its sleep, and after a few seconds, there should be a timer labeled "Today's Total" showing the daily amount of time Opal has been used.
To end an Opal session
Click on "End Session" below the "Today's Total" timer. The Opal mascot will fall back to sleep and your apps should become unblocked in a couple of seconds.
Unlike ending a session, pausing (clicking the pause button next to the timer) allows you to pause your session for a pre-set amount of time, after which Opal will automatically turn back on.
