A Qorus Hub is an instance of Qorus. You can think of it as a Qorus account, where all your settings, subscription information, users, and content source connections are saved.
When you sign up for Qorus, we automatically create your Qorus Hub. Then after you’ve signed up, you can create additional Qorus Hubs for your organization, and switch between them in the Qorus Add-ins or in the Qorus Hub Central. This is ideal for business units, departments, or teams who each wish to manage their own Qorus Hubs independently, but still allow for collaboration across Qorus Hubs when needed.
NB: Please note that pricing is per user, per Qorus Hub. Guests are free however, so you could for instance belong to one Qorus Hub as a fully licensed user, and then be a guest on another Qorus Hub for the purposes of collaborating. In that case, you would only need to pay for a user license on the Qorus Hub where you are fully licensed user.
A content source is a place where your content lives, and that you have connected to Qorus. In other words, it’s a place where you can locate or ‘source’ appropriate content, for the purposes of either re-using that content in documents, emails, and presentations, or as a basis for creating new documents and presentations (templates).
When you sign up for Qorus, we automatically connect OneDrive for Business for you. This is your first content source.
After that, you can connect other sources of content from SharePoint Online (SPO) to Qorus. For instance, you could create a ‘Marketing Team’ content source that connects to multiple libraries in SPO that each contain marketing collateral. Or you could connect an SPO list and create an ‘FAQ’ content source.
To see all the content sources connected to your Qorus Hub, click on 'Search' in the top nav in any of your Qorus Add-ins.

Within a content source, it's possible to have both Search and Save locations.
Search locations are places that users can search for files. Once users have located the files they need, they can engage with and use the files in the search results.
Save locations are places to which users can save new content, while they are working in the Qorus Add-ins and in Hub Central. Save locations come up when users do any of the following:
- Create new documents, presentations, and emails
- Use the Qorus Cart to assemble new PowerPoint presentations
- Clip and save useful re-usable content
- Use the 'Copy to' content action to collect and copy files to another destination folder
For OneDrive for Business, and Microsoft Teams content sources, there's no need to configure Search and Save locations. Users can automatically search and save to all the places they have access to in both OneDrive for Business and in Microsoft Teams.
For SharePoint Online Library content sources, Qorus Admins determine which libraries and folders within SharePoint Online should be Search locations, and which ones should be Save locations.
To learn how to connect SharePoint Online libraries, and configure Search and Save locations, click here.
For SharePoint Online List content sources, Save locations are not supported. You can, however, configure which columns within a list should be searchable. You can learn how to do that here.
User roles in Qorus determine the features and permission levels a user has within the system. You can learn more about the different user roles and how they work here.
