When your project comes to an end, or an individual participant has completed the project, you may wish to turn off device data sharing (stop sensor data collection) from the participant’s device to the project (i.e. RKStudio platform).
To begin, you will first need to create a custom field with a data type of Date or Timestamp, which will be used to store the sensor data collection end date for each participant. We recommend using one of the following naming conventions for this custom field:
- ParticipantEndDate: Use this if all end of project events (i.e. stopping sensor data collection, stopping notifications, etc.) should occur at the same time.
- SensorDataCollectionEndDate: Use this if multiple end of project events should occur at different times (for example, if you want to stop notifications a week before stopping sensor data collection).
Once the custom field has been created, complete the steps below to define the sensor data collection end date.
- Navigate to the End of Project section under the Project Settings tab within your project.
- Select your newly created custom field from the drop down menu under Sensor Data Collection End Date.
- Click Save.
Finally, you will need to determine how you will define this value for each participant (i.e. will all participants have the same end date, will the end date vary based on the enrollment date, etc.). Instructions on how to set this custom field can be found under Setting Custom Fields.
