    • Reliable Study Reload on iOS:

      • We’ve fixed an issue where studies were not reloading properly when the app was not active. This change ensures that your studies are always up-to-date, even when the app is running in the background or has been closed.
    • Improved Study Management on iOS:

      • We’ve resolved a problem where participants couldn’t easily switch to another study or leave the current study after the current study participation period had ended. Now, they can seamlessly move between studies or exit expired ones.

  • Robust Data Management for Research Integrity:
    • We’ve improved our data management system to ensure that your research’s audit logs are preserved even after deleting a participant registration data. This update is crucial for maintaining comprehensive records, aiding in research transparency, and supporting compliance with Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines. It means researchers can now have a complete historical view of their studies, enhancing the trustworthiness and reliability of the research findings, while still respecting participant privacy.
