The data dictionary is a system-generated blueprint of the forms and their properties. These are especially valuable when performing validation of the various behaviors which have been built on a form. The data dictionary covers all the elements (described in detail below), across three main categories:

  • Form properties and form level conditional actions
  • Field properties
  • Field  conditional actions


These are accessible via the following link (web only):




Select which study version or other form type, followed by the export button for the type of details needed:




The exported file name will contain the date exported and the study name.
