- Entering Data into the Online Forms
This article suggests resources you should consult before entering data into the online forms available in the NRDR Portal (for the CTC Registry, GRID and LCSR) and provides instructions for using the forms' features.
Registry Specific Resources
Data submission articles: Refer to each registry’s data submission articles for details about registry-specific data entry processes, e.g., data that must be entered in a specific order: GRID Data Submission Overview, LCSR Data Submission Overview and CTC Registry Data Submission Overview.
PDF forms: Complete a hardcopy version of the forms before entering data online to ensure all data are collected and to provide an opportunity to identify errors during the data entry process. Obtain PDF versions of the forms at: GRID Forms, LCSR Forms and CTC Forms.
Data dictionaries: Learn more about a form's data elements by reviewing the respective registry data dictionary: GRID Data Dictionary, LCSR Data Dictionary and CTC Data Dictionary.
Entering Data into the Online Forms
Once data have been recorded on hardcopy forms, begin online data entry in the NRDR Portal by opening the online version of the forms in a registry’s Data Collection menu.
Throughout NRDR Submit refers to the action you take when you have completed data entry for a form and you want the entries to be recorded in the registry. Save refers to the action you take when you have partially completed a form and you want to continue data entry at a later date. The entries made prior to the Save action will appear on the form when you continue data entry, but they will not be recorded in the registry until you perform the Submit action. You also perform the Save action when you want to make changes to a previously submitted form.
Saving a Partially Completed Form
If you want to save a partially completed form, click the Save button at the bottom of the page. You will be able to continue entering data at a later time.
If you end your session without clicking the Save button, or without correcting errors after clicking the Submit button, your entries will be lost.
Finding a Form
To find a form that has already been saved or submitted to a registry, first, click on the form name under the Data Collection menu. Then, click on the button in the search bar to open the search filter.
Use the filter to find records by status, as well as other criteria.
Click Search to retrieve a list of forms matching your search criteria. You can also click Reset to clear the search fields and start again. Click the number in the first column to view a specific form.
Changing a Form
You may edit forms not marked as Cancelled. A canceled form must first be restored before it can be edited.
To make changes to a form, follow the process described in the Finding a Form section above, and click on the Form or Case number in the first column to open the desired record. Make your changes and then scroll to the bottom and click Submit to complete the form.
You must enter comments if you change data for a form with the status of Submitted or Completed, or if you cancel or restore a form before you can save or submit the changes. Saving changes to a previously submitted form updates the data for the existing form and does not create a new registry entry.
When you make a change to a form that has previously been submitted, the system saves your name, the date the change was made, and the corresponding comment. You can click the History button at the bottom of the page to view information about previous changes.
Canceling and Restoring a Form
To cancel a form, click the Cancel link in the rightmost column of the form list.
If you cancel a form in error, you can restore it by creating a list of search results that includes the form you want to restore and then clicking Restore in the rightmost column for the form to be restored.
