Board 017 - REDCap Linter 2.0

5:00 PM–6:30 PM Nov 18, 2019 (US - Eastern)

Columbia Hall


REDCap Linter 1.0 allowed a rapid clean up of errors in source data before creating a cleaned csv file for upload to REDCap. REDCap Linter 2.0 introduces: 1. The ability to export and import a mappings file that stores information connecting spreadsheet columns to REDCap fields. The mappings file also stores steps used to clean up errors found in column data. 2. An API to call on REDCap Linter services programmatically.

Learning Objective: By reading this poster, the learner should be able to:
1. Identify some difficulties with importing data into REDCap from spreadsheets.
2. Understand how Linter enables faster manual clean up of spreadsheet data
3. Understand how Linter stores the clean up step in a mappings file and uses them for future spreadsheet data
4. Understand that an API access to Linter can help automate spreadsheet data cleanup.
