Note: Don't worry about what's entered in these fields for now. They can all be changed at any time.

  1. Study Name

  2. Sponsor Name - This is merely a label for your own reference in identifying the study.

  3. Study Type - Choose either option here. The only difference is that Training Studies have a watermark on every page so users are clear they are not in a live study.
