REDCap Tip of the Month: Copying Projects
Do you have a successful REDCap project that you would like to reuse or repurpose for another project?
If you do, then you might want to consider using the REDCap “Copy Project” button, which lets you copy all the events, forms, variables, and settings into a new project.
During the copy process, you will have the opportunity to edit the Project title and define a new purpose to the project. You have the option to copy or not copy any of the following:
- All records/responses
- All users and roles
- All reports
- All data quality rules
- All Project Folders
- All settings for Survey Queue and Automated Survey Invitations
- All project bookmarks
The “Copy Project” button can be found in the “Other Functionality” tab in the project you want to copy.
Note that a REDCap Administrator has to approve your request before you can use your copied project. This approval process is usually completed within one business day of your request.
