This topic describes how to edit the properties of visits and timepoints that have been created within your study. Whether they were created manually or inferred automatically when data was imported, you can use the instructions here to customize them.

Edit a Visit or Timepoint

From the Manage tab in a study, select either Manage Visits or Manage Timepoints.

Click (Edit) to the left of the name of the visit or timepoint you want to change.

In addition to the properties available when you first create visits or timepoints, you can edit some additional properties and associations.

Visit Properties

  • Label: Descriptive name for this visit. This label will appear in the Study Overview.
  • VisitId/Sequence Range: Each row of data is assigned to a visit using a sequence number. A visit can be defined as a single sequence number or a range.
  • Protocol Day (not shown in visit creation UI): The expected day for this visit according to the protocol, used for study alignment.
  • Description: An optional short text description of the visit, available as hover text.
  • Type: Visit types are described in the visit creation topic.
  • Cohort (not shown in visit creation UI): If the visit is associated with a particular cohort, you can select it here from the list of cohorts already defined in the study.
  • Visit Date Dataset and Column Name: Where to find the visit date in the data.
  • Visit Handling (advanced): You may specify that unique sequence numbers should be based on visit date. This is for special handling of some log/unscheduled events. Make sure that the sequence number range is adequate (e.g #.0000-#.9999). Options:
    • Normal
    • Unique Log Events by Date
  • Show By Default: Check to make this visit visible in the Study Overview.
  • Associated Datasets: Listing of datasets currently associated with this visit. For each, you can set the dropdown to either Optional or Required.

Timepoint Properties

  • Label: Text name for this timepoint.
  • Day Range: Days from start date encompassing this timepoint, i.e. days 8-15 would represent Week 2.
  • Protocol Day (not shown in timepoint creation UI): The expected day for this visit according to the protocol, used for study alignment.
  • Description: An optional short text description of the timepoint, available as hover text.
  • Type: Timepoint types are described in the timepoint creation topic.
  • Cohort (not shown in timepoint creation UI): If the timepoint is associated with a particular cohort, you can select it here from the list of cohorts already defined in the study.
  • Show By Default: Check to make this timepoint visible in the Study Overview.
  • Associated Datasets: Listing of datasets currently associated with this visit. For each, you can set the dropdown to either Optional or Required.

Protocol Day

The Protocol Day is the expected day for this visit according to the protocol, used for study alignment. It cannot be set explicitly when defining new visits or timepoints, but can be edited after creation. For a date-based study, the default protocol day is the median of the timepoint range. For a visit-based study, the default is 0.

Cohort

If the visit or time point is associated with a particular cohort, you can select it here. The pulldown lists cohorts already defined in the study. By default, timepoints and visits are not specific to individual cohorts.

Edit Multiple Visits From One Page

Using the Change Properties link on the "Manage Visits" page, you can change the label, cohort, type, and visibility of multiple visits from a single page. This option is not available for timepoints.

Note that this link only allows you to change a subset of visit properties while the "Edit" link lets you change all properties for a single visit at a time.

Hover to View Descriptions

If you add descriptions to visits or timepoints, you will be able to hover over the value in the Visit column to view the description.

The same visit description is available as a tooltip within the study overview.
