Instructional text and video tutorials will guide you at every step of the project creation and development process.</p> <p>Tutorial videos are available on the Training Videos tab. The overview videos at the top are most helpful for new users.<br><br><span style="text-decoration: underline;">User Guide<br></span>Please see the next page in the menu on the right to find a Vanderbilt/Meharry REDCap <a title="" href="index.php?doc_id=24008" target="_blank">User Guide</a>.

We can login to your project to see exactly what you see; we can then provide detailed guidance (screenshots, direct links) to help with any particular features you’re working with.&nbsp;<em>NOTE: Depending on the topic complexity and analyst assigned to it, there is <span style="text-decoration: underline;">sometimes</span> flexibility to provide <span style="text-decoration: underline;">limited</span>, alternate, supplementary support methods when email ultimately isn’t sufficient for a complex issue. Our team’s help desk duties and staff rotate daily. So this flexibility is <span style="text-decoration: underline;">very</span> limited and <span style="text-decoration: underline;">not</span> guaranteed.</em> <br><br>•<strong>Contact the Vanderbilt Data Core</strong> <strong>for fee-based assistance.</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;Forms development, training, custom software programming and other services are offered on a fee-for-service basis.
