DSD: Setting up User Rights and Data Access Groups in REDCap
Course Description:

This session demonstrates using user rights and data access groups to control which team members have what kind of access to their REDCap project data.

In this hands-on session, you will learn to set up user rights for specific team member, and data access groups to manage access to collections of data with similar structure and processes.

If you want to follow the session hands-on, you need an account on a REDCap project. Having an account is not compulsory for this session. You are welcome to observe the training to determine if these features are relevant to your project.
