To get a DU REDCap account, please have your PI/project administrator email firstname.lastname@example.org request access. Please provide your:
DU ID number (your 87* number)
Once you have a REDCap account, your project administrator can grant you user rights to your lab's projects.
If a research project member doesn’t have a DU ID#, your PI (or any team member in a benefited position) can request that your project member become a Special Community Member (SCM), This process involves a background check, so it can take several weeks -- so please plan ahead if you have outside users who need REDCap access!
IT@DU maintains a very helpful FAQ on SCMs -- once you're ready to complete the online SCM form, REDCap users should remember to:
Once you receive confirmation that your SCM now has a DU 87 number, please send their name and DU 87 number along with a request for REDCap access to email@example.com.
