Help! I can't log into REDCap...

Step 0: Do you have a DU REDCap account? If not, please see "Getting access to REDCap."

Step 1: Be sure that for username, you're entering your DU email address without the attached (firstname.lastname).

  •  I know it seems like we're overemphasizing this step, but your browser will be actively trying to "help" by filling in different usernames that you use on other DU sites.

Step 2: Test whether you can log into MyDU -- if your MyDU password has expired, you'll need to change your MyDU password before you can log into REDCap.

Step 3: If Steps 1 and 2 don't solve your login problem, please email and explain that you've tried both steps 1 and 2 yet still can't log into your REDCap account.

Help! I'm logged in but can't see my project...

Once you have a DU REDCap account, your PI/project administrator can grant you user rights to view and/or edit the projects you need to access. 

I can't log in on Thursday morning...

DU REDCap performs weekly maintenance every Thursday morning from 6-7am. You won't be able to log into your REDCap account during this time, nor will participants be able to take REDCap surveys. We apologize for the inconvenience, but it's important to keep our REDCap instance up to date and secure!
