Property Description Objects Schedule
Actions

Lists the number of actions associated with a rule.

  • Rules
Active

Leave this checkbox selected to keep your View as Active. Clear it to make your view Inactive. Inactive Views are not included in the output of Data Export jobs.

  • Views
Allow Unknown

Select one or more components (Month, Day, and Time; Day and Time; or Time) from the drop-down to allow a data entry user to enter those components as Unknown. For example, for a Date/Time item, if you choose Day and Time, data entry users will be able to mark the day and the time as unknown, but not the month. Depending on when your study was originally created, you may have Month and Day or Day selected for this property. With the 19R2 release, we updated the available options for Allow Unknown. These selections will continue to work as previously, but if you edit this property, you will only be able to select from the new set of options, detailed above.

  • Items with the "Date" or "DateTime" data type
Codelist Definition

Select a Codelist Definition for the item. You can define Codelist Definitions in Studio > Codelists.

  • Items with the "Codelist" data type
Coding Configuration

Use this property to configure an EDC Form for use in Vault Coder. Once configured, Vault will create a new Code Request each time a data entry user completes the Form. This property is only useable in vaults that include the Vault Coder application.

Learn more about the Coding Configuration property.

  • Forms
Control Type

Select a Control Type (either picklist or radio buttons) to choose how Vault displays codelist items as selectable options.

  • Items with the "Codelist" data type
Data Type

Select a Data Type. This indicates what type of data the Item collects on the Form. For example, if you select Codelist, the Item displays a picklist of codelist values, or a radio button for each codelist value. Depending on which data type you select, additional properties are available.

  • Items
Day Range Early & Day Range Late

Enter the earliest and latest possible dates for an Event.

  • Events
    (Available when the Event is associated with an Event Group)
Default Data

Use this property to allow Vault EDC to automatically create a set number of repetition sequences for this Item Group, based on the selected Codelist Items. For example, if you have a repeating Physical Exam item group, you can set the Default Data property such that Vault EDC automatically creates five Physical Exam item groups (one for each Body System codelist item) each time a user creates a Form containing this Item Group.

Learn more about the Default Data property.
