Form Versions

All forms in SMART-TRIAL have a form version, they can be used to align protocol versions and eCRF versions in SMART-TRIAL. The form version follows the format:”m.n” with m being the major version number, and n the minor version number. All new forms start with form version 0.1


Every time the form is saved the minor version number will increase by one. 


If SMART-TRIAL's translation module is enabled for your study, the minor version number will also increase each time a change is performed in a translation. 


When the study is started, all forms will have their version changed to 1.0. 


In case of a protocol amendment, or substantial changes to your forms, it is possible to increase the major form version to e.g. (2.0) in amendment mode. To increase the form version, go to the form list and click on “Increase Form Version” below actions. Increasing the major number will reset the minor number to 0.
If you do not increase the major version number after making a change and saving the form, then only the minor version number will increase meaning that the form version will change to 1.1

By clicking on the form title you can unfold and view all previous form versions. 


SMART-TRIAL provides information on which form version was used during fill out when reviewing form answers. It is always the newest version that will be available to newly enrolled subjects and if editing an existing subjects questionnaire answers.
