De research manager is a convenient tool to collect and examine data. But sometimes you want to examine the data even closer, by for example being able to lay it out next to each other on paper. Or maybe you use a statistical program and you want to move data from de research manager to the program, without having to fill in everything by hand. That is what the export function is for: your own data from de research manager, in the format you want. In this manual you read everything you need to know about it.

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 ‘Exports > CRF’
Now you see the starting page. Place your mouse at the top, in the menu bar, on ‘CRF’, then on ‘Exports’ and then click on ‘CRF’.
Step 2: Overview exportpage and selecting patients
Now you find yourself on the exportpage. On the bottom of the page is a table with exports that were done in the past.
To start a new export, you begin with selecting the type of export you want: an excel file or an export for SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, an often used statistics program). After this you give your export a name. Then you select the components you want to export.
Next to the dropdown menu in which you select these, there are two buttons: one to save the export settings as you selected, so you can easily export them again later, and another button to use the previously saved exports settings again. This comes in handy when you want to export the same component multiple times, for example to compare snapshots.
After that you select all the patients whose information you want to export. To select all patients from a particular site you only have to check the concerning site. Finally, you choose whether you want to export the score fields too.
Step 3: Exporting file
Now you click on ‘Add export’. The export appears directly in the table at the bottom of the page. Initially, every export is placed in the queue, but is then picked up as soon as possible.
When the export gets the status “Complete” you can download the file. You do this by double clicking on the export name and then, in the pop-up that opens, double click on the file name. You can save the file or open it in Excel/SPSS.
