It is with great pleasure that we announce the next experimental release
of EpiData Manager and EpiData EntryClient.
The main new aspects are:
1. Controlled user login (Extended Access):
With Extended Access users can have different roles in a project, some
may change the structure of data and others only enter data or reset
passwords for other users. This extends the security of the project from
encryption of data to encryption of the whole project. For entry of data
rights to edit and read data is defined at the dataform level.
A full explanation of how you work with user controlled login is
available from the testing download page:
http://www.epidata.dk/testing.php. Anexample project is included with
the installation package, this includes an extension of the "Clinical
Example Project" with defined groups. A readme.txt contains user name
2. Customised Statusbar:
In addition to a modernised design the content of the Statusbar can now
be adapted with various elements. The Dataform Information panel can
display a text or contents of the currently active dataform. For those
familiar with the old EpiData Entry 3.1 this is much like the "type
statusbar" command of the .chk file.
Please notice that as usual:
DO NOT use the experimental version for routine work and do not use on
your real projects. Work on copies of data. Changes to data structure
and definitions will change until the features are included in public
Please test the following:
1. Addition of users to the example project to defined groups.
2. Addition of groups and rights for a project you start from scratch.
3. The new statusbar
Next phase of development will focus on these aspects:
a. recording of what the user did after logging into a project
b. reporting of defined groups and users in a given project.
