Importing Forms


Forms are imported into the Website Host and Study Level form builder application by clicking the Import Form link in the Links table as shown in the figure below.


NOTE: User’s need to verify they are working in the correct Sponsor and Study in the Right Client Zone.




When importing forms, Users should only import Forms that are Form Types created or used at that Level.  Form types that are not part of a Form Builder Level are not related to the level and therefore do not display in the related applications.  For example, if a User wants to Import a Subject Form and imports it into the Website Host Level Form Builder, the Form will not display in the Website Host Level applications or Study Level applications. Below are the Form Types created and used at each Level of the system.


Website Host Level – Form Types (Profile Forms only):

· User

· Site

· Study


Study Level – Form Types

· Site (Site Documents)

· Subject

· Study
