New Study Builder

The new study builder provides a streamlined setup for creation and deployment of studies, while also enabling you to easily include any of the available SMART-TRIAL addons that make your life easier. As always, we strive to make your life as simple as possible by continuously optimizing our user-friendliness based on your feedback. The new study builder enables you to select the SMART-TRIAL product that fits to your particular study, which helps you to create the exact study type you are looking for. The SMART-TRIAL Cases product will be added to the study builder in Q1, 2021.

Learn more about how to use the new study builder in our Study Builder Help Center.

Randomization Stratification

The Randomization Module now includes stratification. This enables you to stratify your data by sites and/or questions, depending on what is needed for your particular clinical study. To learn more about the Randomization Module and the new stratification feature, go to our Randomization Help Center.

Form Versioning

To improve version control, all new forms will now get a version number consisting of a major & a minor number (e.g. 1.3). In addition, you will now be able to view all historical versions of the form, which will give you better traceability of form changes. To learn more about the new form versioning, go to our Form Version Help Center.

Reschedule Activation Time

To add additional flexibility to your studies in SMART-TRIAL, it is now possible to reschedule data event activation times. This helps you in cases where a study needs to be initiated at a different date than originally intended. When rescheduling data events, you can add the same rescheduling to all subsequent data events to ensure easy rescheduling of more complex study setups. To learn more about rescheduling, go to our Activation Time Help Center.

Direct Export to Excel

The highly requested ability to export directly to Excel format is now available. When exporting, you will now see the XLSX format option. This is helpful when you need to quickly create data reports or overview of your data.
