Adding a Section - Overview

When you add a section, the menu options are similar those in the Add Item menu. In this article, we explain the key differences.

General Tab

The General tab provides the following two options:

  • Caption: allows you to enter a heading or label that will appear at the top of the section. Section headers appear in a larger, bolded font and can be used to clearly differentiate sections on a form page or to act as a page header (when using the multi-page form option).
  • Section style: allows you to change the background color to white or grey. You also have the option of adding a border.

Note Formatting Tab

This is very similar to the Note Formatting tab for adding an item. Full features are described in the diagram below.

  • Custom Note: Generates a custom note for this item instead of the caption (which is the default).
  • Note header style: Allows you to customize the header (e.g. bold, underline, bold+underline, italic).
  • Answers within this section should be: Selecting "placed within quotes" puts quotation marks around answers, if desired.
  • Place notes for negative answers: Selecting "grouped together at the end of the section" presents all the negative notes together at the end of the clinical note (e.g. no smoking, no alcohol intake, etc). 
  • Separate list/the last item(s) in the note using: Allows you to separate items in the clinical note using punctuation, such as periods and semi-colons.
  • Ordinal for this note: Allows you to present this section of the note in a different order from the layout of the eForm. To set this, enter a number indicating the order in which the note should be presented, relative to the other questions. Note that this function will only work if ALL sections in the form have an ordinal number associated with it.
  • Show the note for this item: Allows you to define whether the notes for this section should appear on a new line or on the same line as the surrounding notes.
  • Create a note for this item: Allows you to define when a note should be created for this section (e.g. if it has an answer, always, never, or using an if: statement).
