Notifications for study events

This chapter explains how to receive notifications about the events in your study that you are interested in.

Castor EDC can send you updates via email (notifications) of several predefined events as soon as they happen in the system.

Go to Study Settings

First go to the study 'Settings' tab, then choose the 'Notifications' sub-tab. Here you can add a new notification or edit existing ones. When clicking the 'Add notification' button or the edit cogwheel, this menu will appear: 

When adding a new notification there are several options to be set.

  1. Event type: Choose one of the currently eight available events:
  • Form signature dropped due to edit
  • Form verification dropped due to edit
  • New query created
  • New record created
  • New report added to record
  • Query updated
  • Record randomized
  • Survey package completed
  1. Recipient: Choose a recipient of the notification email in the drop-down (which shows all users added to the study).
  2. Filter on institute: Choose one or multiple institutes for which you want to receive the notifications (i.e. only your own hospital). Leave this field empty if you want to receive notifications for all institutes.
  3. Notification template: This is the email text that will be sent when the event occurs. You can modify this as you like. The listed available tags will be replaced by their real values when the notification is sent.

Press the save button to save the notification or the cancel button to return to the notifications overview.
