In REDCap, how do I modify the structure of my data collection instruments?

You can change your REDCap data collection instruments using either the online Form Editor or the Data Dictionary.

At Indiana University, UITS recommends using the Data Dictionary, particularly if your data collection instruments have many variables or are using advanced functionalities, such as branching logic and calculated fields.

If you have questions about REDCap, or need help setting up or managing a REDCap project, email Indiana CTSI support.
