The Clinical Studio Form Builder enables novice users and non-programmers to create very sophisticated forms for compliant and structured data collection. The task of creating forms is made easy by utilizing state of the art “drag and drop” technology. The level of customization and power you will see here is unmatched by any other form building tool.



There are two form builders in Clinical Studio:

  • Host-level - Found under the Website Host menu
  • Study level - Found under the Study menu as shown below


Important: Most forms, like subject eCRFs, are built at the study level. Please ensure you are building your forms in the correct location and choosing the correct form type.
