- Navigate through the Main menu - > Management -> Sites;
- Search for the site you want to activate;
- Indicate at the site as well as the linked study that the site needs to get the status ‘Active’.
It regularly occurs that multiple organizations work together and are involved in one study. In that case it would be convenient to be able to see which organizations they are and who the first contact person for the research is, etc. It is also convenient to be able to determine how many patients are linked to every participating organization, to be able to then keep this separated – for example when randomizing patients.
To make all these things easier for you, research manager has developed the function “sites”. A site is an organization that participates in a study. Not only patients are linked to a site, but also researchers or other personnel. This way you can instantly see to what organisation someone belongs to.

Attention: Does your organization use multiple modules within research manager? In that case it could be that you first enter the module portal. Click on “Data management”. Dependent on you settings it could be that you enter one of our other modules first. If you do not see “Data management” in the top left corner of your screen, click on the logo you do see to get to the module portal. Then, click on “Data management” as well.
Step 1: Navigate towards ‘Sites’
Now you see the starting page. Click at the top, in the menu bar, on ‘Management’. Then, click under the heading ‘Site- and user settings’ on ‘Sites’.
Step 2: Option Site list
Now you find yourself on the page with sites. You can filter the displayed sites on specific studies, on sites that do not use a single study or choose not to use a filter.
By clicking on the arrow on the left next to a site name you can unfold the site and you can see to which studies it is linked. Click at the top on ‘’Unfold all” to unfold all sites and on “Fold all” to hide the extra information again.
Step 3: Activate Site
Before you can use a site in a study, it needs to be activated on two levels: the site itself, and the site when it has been linked to the concerning study.
You do this by changing the status on the main line to Active, and changing it to Active on the lines that become visible after unfolding. You do that by clicking on the icon in the column ‘Change status’
