Tree View on Questionnaires and Responses

All Questionnaires of a Project are shown as usual in a Navigation Card to the left of the Questionnaires Panel (under Scenarios). All Questionnaires are listed alphabetically, associated Questionnaire Responses are shown as child items of the Questionnaire.


The Tree can be filtered, completely expanded or collapsed and the menu item offers to create a new Questionnaires (starting from scratch), or to Transform an already defined Project Transaction into a Questionnaire.



If your project has not defined any FHIR services (see Project Overview - Services) then the following dialog invites you to defined such a FHIR service for your project.


The Details Card on the right shows the usual metadata for versionabel objects and a table reflecting the hierarchical list of the Items of the Questionnaire Definition. The list can be expanded or collapsed.


Groups are shown with a folder icon, items are arranged with an icon indicating their Questionnaire item type.

Export/Download and Form Rendering

In the top bar there are three buttons offered, the usual raise-an-issue button, and especially for Questionnaires the Download and the Render button.


Clicking on the download button allows you to export the ART-DECOR Questionnaire as a FHIR Questionnaire. It opens a dialog that shows the available FHIR endpoints (version) of the Project and a format switch.


The Render button opens a new window that shows the rendered form. It uses the LHC Formsopen in new window rendering machine from the Nation Library of Medicine. Later you can choose between two different rendering machines.
