This page is about extracting info per participant; for info per survey see Extracting feedback from LimeSurvey CPD Tracking.

This page describes how to extract a physician's attendance at events tracked in LimeSurvey CPD Tracking. Usually this data is provided to all physicians during CPD Reporting at the beginning of january, so this process is only for exceptional cases where additional reporting is required.

Circumstances for early reporting

  • some attendings go away from the majority of December and early part of January, and like to pre-enter data
  • leave of absence: Research, Maternity, Paternity, Sabbatical

  • Who will do this?
  • Primarily they physician's assistant / secretarial staff can
    • Yes I agree, whoever needs it can run the report, or is this an access issue then Tina?
      • That's a big part of the issue, not every dept member has Access to Limesurvey, nor would I want them to - it's not as resilient as e.g. the wiki re. people making mistakes. User:Ttenbergen
  • The person who sent out the Lime Survey

LimeSurvey is sent out by many people, so that doesn't address who. User:Ttenbergen 09:55, 22 November 2018 (CST)
