Using Interval Data Entry

Interval Date Entry, or IDE, allows Site Personnel to enter a visit date for all forms in that visit, hence the term Visit Interval. 

Web Browser:

  1. Go to the scheduled visit and events manager page for the selected subject.
  2. Enter the date for the interval. This will be the date used in the form set for IDE in the interval.

  3. Click the Save Dates button to save dates for all forms in the interval.

Selecting this option will fill in the date in read-only mode on top of your form.  If you forgot to enter your date in the interval the date field will be collapsed and you will not be able to see a date in the field. If this occurs, you can just enter a date in the interval to resolve.
