Removing Records, Files, or Entire Subjects That are no Longer Needed
Prerequisite: User has access to the permissions delete subject, delete subject event records, and/or delete documents.
For traceability and compliance reasons, deleting records does not fully delete the data. Study Administrators will still have access to deleted records and can potentially restore anything that has been deleted.
Examples of scenarios requiring deleting:
A Study Monitor finds a duplicate log form entered, such as a protocol deviation
A Site Coordinator accidentally logs a Con Med not required by the protocol
- A Site Coordinator inadvertently enters a subject twice, or enters data into the wrong subject

Deleting Documents (files)
Within forms, documents/files can be deleted without deleting the entire form.
This is done on the upload field on the form where the document resides. A red ‘x' will appear (web only) if the user has the 'Delete Documents’ permission.
If the record has been reviewed/locked, files can only be deleted Administratively from the File Repository.
To Delete a subject and all of the corresponding records, use the Delete button on the main subject manager screen as shown below.
Swipe left on any subject ID to access the delete function.

Click on the Undelete link on the far right-hand column of the report to return a record back to the subject's casebook.
