Known Issues for OpenClinica 3.0

Below is a list of known issues in the 3.0 version of OpenClinica.

OpenClinica and Internet Explorer 6

  • OpenClinica 3.0 has been optimized for use with Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 8, Firefox 3.0 and Firefox 3.5. If you are using IE6, you could run into trouble when you try to login to the application. If you get a page that the resource can not be found, hit the Back button on the browser and try to login again.

All functionality of OpenClinica will work with IE6, but some of the pages might not display correctly.

Site Unique Protocol IDs

  • Site Protocol IDs must be unique across a study and can not share the study unique protocol ID. This was done for the web service of registering a subject and scheduling an event.

Languages other than English are not part of the default installation

  • Please click here to learn about the change to language files in 3.0.

Archiving a CRF Version

  • If you archive a CRF version that was the default version being used in an Event Definition, users can still enter data into it by accessing the Subject Matrix and selecting an event column header. From this page, the user is sent to enter data on the default version only. You must change the default version being used in the Event Definition to ensure users will not enter data into it.

Tabbing in CRFs with Repeating Groups

  • When you are in a CRF section that contains repeating groups, when you tab it will not go left to right. It will stay within a column until you get to the bottom and then go back up to the top of the next column.

Invalid Rules Title When Uploading Rules

  • When using some browsers, if you upload an Invalid Rule, the title of the section will appear to the right instead of the left.

Default Values with Radio Buttons

  • Default Values with items that have a response_type of radio will not be supported.

Rule Assignment for an Event Definition That Has Been Removed

  • If a rule assignment is pointing to an item in an event definition that has been removed, the system will say it is a valid rule assignment. However, attempting to commit the rule assignment to the database will result in the OpenClinica an error has occurred page.

Download Audit User Activity Table (upgrades only)

  • OpenClinica instances upgraded from 2.5.x to 3.0 will not be able to download the table of user activity into CSV or Excel.

Filtering by Group Classes in the Matrix

  • In the subject matrix, it will appear that you can filter by group class. However, this is not supported at this time.

Uploading a file that contains + in the file name

  • When a user uploads a file that contains a + in the name, no other user will be able to download the file from the CRF.
  • The workaround is to change the name of the file and remove all + signs before uploading it.

Rules not firing at the site level during data entry

  • Rules do not fire for site level users during data entry.
  • The rules can be run in batch in order to log discrepancy notes.

Downloading CSV of Discrepancy Notes Over SSL

  • In Internet Explorer it takes an extremely long time to download the CSV version of notes to your computer. It may time out depending on your browser settings, but you can choose to open it up first, then save it to your desktop, with no problems.

Reason for Change Already Logged for an Item

  • If the study is configured to use Reason for Change, and a Reason for Change note already exists on the field, the validation forcing another Reason for Change to be entered if the value has changed will not fire. This issue will be resolved in a future version of OpenClinica.
