Hiding Tabs in Clinical Studio is a very easy process. However, there is a specific set of instructions that must be followed. This document will explain those instructions.

Hidden Tabs should be used to deploy a single form across visit intervals. Certain sections of data may not be required at certain intervals. In that case, the tab can be completely hidden from the user.

Define the Conditional Action

The first step to hiding a tab is to define the conditional action. Select the field on the page where you want to hide the tab. It can be any field including a separator or label. Open the Conditional Action builder by clicking the Conditional Actions link in the Form/Page Properties section of the Form Builder. The following explains how the conditional action must be defined.

*The most important thing to remember is to name the conditional action correctly by using “{Tab” as the first four characters. The tab will be hidden when the conditional action formula renders a result of “true”. The tab that will be hidden is the tab the field is defined for.

Test Conditional Action in Form

You will need to go into the form to test your conditional action. You should notice that upon entering the form the conditional action has fired and your tab should be completely hidden.
