Getting started with forms, sections and fields
After you have created a visit, you can add forms to the visit using the Add a form to this visit link. The Label field will be displayed in the Red Pill interface, and the Name field is used to name the underlying database table, prefixed by ‘crf’. Because of this, form names must be alphanumeric, start with a letter, and have a maximum length of 32 characters. The name is used when downloading data from Red Pill.
The Repeatable option should be selected only if you expect to enter multiple forms in the current visit for the same participant, such as when recording adverse events or other events that may happen multiple times. See Repeating form or section? for more information.
The Subject-entered form option indicates that the participant will be expected to complete the form themselves online using Red Pill's subject-entered forms feature. Talk to Sealed Envelope before selecting this option.
Please go to Forms and sections for more information on how to create forms in your CRF.
Add sections and fields
A form is made up of sections containing fields. To add fields to a form, you must first add a section. Sections are used to group fields visually on a form. A section can be repeatable to allow a set of questions to be recorded multiple times. This is useful for recording, for instance, all concomitant medications or family history on one form.
Add a field using the Add a field link in the section. Choose the best field type to suit the data you want to collect. The Label field is displayed in the Red Pill interface, and the Name field is used to name the underlying database column. Because of this, names must be alphanumeric, start with a letter, and have a maximum length of 32 characters. The name is used when downloading data from Red Pill. You can go to Fields for more information on how to define the fields in your CRF.
By clicking on the corresponding icon, you can edit field or section details, add a new field or section, and duplicate or delete a section and all of its fields.
