New Feature_Inactive Services Indicator

Dear SPARC Users,

In our latest production v2.1.0 (released 7/5/17), an Inactive indicator (visual cue) was added in SPARCRequest and SPARCDashboard to help identify services that were no longer active. Previously there was no indication that a service had become inactive in SPARCRequest (through updates in SPARCCatalog). This was an issue when users would go back into an old (draft) protocol and submit, when the currently active services should be requested instead of the inactive services.

Please see screenshot below; also refer to SPARCRequest New Feature List v2.1.0 #11.

SPARCFulfillment (Version 2.5.0) Visit Report Data Dictionary

Dear SPARC MUSC Community,

As an effort to facilitate better understanding of the definition of the system-generated canned reports and continuously improving them, we have been working on the data dictionary of each report. The data dictionary documents include the definition of each column/data field as well as its source record and backend information.

As the first of the series of documents, please click here for the Data Dictionary of the Visit Report based on the current version of SPARCFulfillment (version 2.5.0), which can be generated on SPARCFulfillment “All Reports” tab.
