REDCap New Features

By February 5, 2020News, REDCap

REDCap has been successfully upgraded to version 9.5.6. Listed below are the newest features. Click here to learn more about these new features and many other improvements.

  • Alerts & Notifications – The Alerts & Notifications feature allows you to construct alerts and send customized email notifications. These notifications may be sent to one or more recipients and can be triggered or scheduled when a form/survey is saved and/or based on conditional logic whenever data is saved or imported.
  • Rich Text Editor – Users may optionally utilize the rich text editor for styling field labels or section headers with many text-formatting options; available for any field on an instrument, survey invitations, and survey confirmation emails.
  • Missing Data Codes – Fields that have a blank/missing value may be marked with a custom ‘Missing Data Code’ to note why the value is blank. These missing codes may be used to aid in data analysis by specifying why a field lacks a value.
  • File Version History for File Upload Fields – This feature allows a new file to be uploaded onto a File Upload field that already has a file uploaded for it. If a file has already been uploaded, the field will have a new link “Upload new version”, and after being clicked, it will allow the user to upload another file without having to delete the existing one.
  • New Action Tag @HIDDEN-PDF – Hides the field only in the downloaded PDF of one or more instruments (including blank PDFs, PDFs with data, and compact PDFs with data).
  • New API Method “Import Repeating Instruments and Events” – Allows users to import a list of the repeated instruments and repeating events for a project as a means of setting which instruments and events should be repeatable.
