SMART-TRIAL 2019.4 (2.13)

2019.4 will be noticeably 'thin' compared to previous releases, as we had a feature-freeze. The goal was to improve our tools and scalability of the system. However you will see some changes:


  • Export

    • Studies can now be exported regardless of size
    • Exports are now requested and will run in the background, so the user can go elsewhere while the export is created.
    • Most studies will not notice the difference, as the exports are handled within seconds
    • The requester will receive a notification when the export is ready.
    • Exports are now stored for one hour, before they are deleted.
    • Export has its own left side menu point. The old export will redirect here.
    • Study level export items (AE, Medication, and study overview) will be downloaded immediately via a dialogue box. For more information and images please see our help site: click
  • Added support for Cantonese in public sign up and subject events

  • The "Create Sites" button in the Study Info view now takes you to Site Overview where sites can be created

  • Processes can now be duplicated during amendment mode

  • Verification status of questions and forms have been added to the API

  • The total score of a score-form is now included in the API


  • Query comment length has been increased to 1000 character


  • Change log would show Information Text as having been changed when that was not the case
  • Query button was shown despite not having the query permission, it is now hidden if the user does not have query permission
  • Notes made on table questions were not visible
  • The delete button was visible for validation rules during data collection, it has now been hidden
  • Information text could be marked as "Include in score" in Score Forms, the button has been removed
  • Image charts could not be printed to PDF, has been corrected
  • The default message on validation rules e.g.: "Answer must be greater than 10" counted as a missing translation in the translation view.
  • Form name had gone missing in the breadcrumb during form preview, has now been found and put in its place
  • Added loader to the query overview when first loading the page
