What support is available?

UBC ARC offers support for the REDCap platform as a service during regular UBC business hours on a best effort basis. Support is available for the use of the platform, technical questions, and guidance regarding appropriate use of the platform and instrument configuration. ARC is not resourced to directly assist research projects with the design and configuration of their projects.

If you have any questions, please email UBC ARC REDCap Support.
