When working with calculations to “pull” or share data between forms and reports you will need to think about where data is coming from and where you want to send it to.
- Study variables can be referenced within the study or report forms
- Report variables can only be referenced within the same report
- Survey variables can be referenced only within the same survey
Keep in mind that these fields are only executed when the respective step is opened and do not count towards record progress.
You can reference survey or report data within a study form, however, this calculation will only “grab” the last reported value. If you have the same question on a baseline survey and Day 30 survey, the reference will be for the Day 30 survey.
