We are pleased to bring you the following new features in this week’s release. See details about each feature’s enablement below.

EDC

Updated Date, DateTime & Time Controls

Users can now input dates and times into a free text field for Date, DateTime, and Time item controls, allowing easier and quicker data entry. These controls accept the date entered in the study’s standard format, the user’s locale’s format, or the ISO 8601 format. Learn more

Repeating Item Groups

With Repeating Item Groups, users can capture repeating sets of questions while on a specific form.  Repeating Item Groups are available for both standard and repeating forms. Learn more.

Remove Empty Unscheduled Events

Data entry users can now remove unscheduled events that they added accidentally. To remove an event, all forms in the event must be in the blank status. To remove the event, users select Delete Event from the event’s More Actions menu. Learn more.

Subject-Level Electronic Signature

Users responsible for electronic signatures can now sign off on all submitted forms related to a Subject with a single signature. Users can apply subject-level signatures by selecting Apply Electronic Signature from the casebook’s Actions menu. Learn more.

Mark an Event as Did Not Occur

Users can now indicate that an event did not occur. When a user marks an event as did not occur, Vault does not create any of the associated forms, and the user can proceed to the next event in the casebook. Users can mark an event by clicking Did Not Occur from the casebook schedule. Learn more.

Mark an Event as Did Not Occur

Mark a Form as Intentionally Left Blank

Users can now indicate that a form was intentionally left blank. When a user marks a form as intentionally left blank, Vault does not create queries due to missing data. Users can mark a form by selecting Intentionally Left Blank from the form’s Actions menu. Learn more

Submit Button Rename

With this release, we have renamed the Submit button to the Complete button.

Vault Objects

Show in Tab for Simple Many-to-Many Relationships

Show in Tab for Simple Many-to-Many Relationships allows users to view a list of related object records in a custom tab. From the custom tab view, users can apply additional filters, save filters for future use, edit fields in-line, and export the list of related object records.

Note that Show in Tab is only available if there is an existing custom tab for the related object. Show in Tab is also not available for Complex Many-to-Many Relationships.

Reporting

Conditional Notification Option for Flash Reports

Users can now configure Flash Reports to only send notifications if the report returns at least one record. By defining the Flash Report’s filter criteria to only return action items and selecting the new notification option, users can create intelligent monitors. Learn more.
