Book MDClone and REDCap virtual office hours consultations in advance using our new scheduling pages

In an effort to improve the quality and efficiency of our MDClone and REDCap consultation services, we began offering virtual office hours earlier in 2022. To further refine and improve this process, you can now schedule 30-minute blocks of time in advance for consultations during office hours! To schedule a consultation, simply:  

  1. Click the appropriate link (MDClone; REDCap)
  2. Enter your WUSTL Key and password 
  3. Select the time block(s) that work for you 
  4. Enter your name and email 
  5. Add optional notes that may streamline the consultation 
  6. Select “Book” at the bottom of the page   

You will receive a confirmation email and an Outlook calendar invitation with a Zoom link after booking your appointment. You will also receive a reminder email 24 hours before the consultation starts. 

You may select a single 30-minute block or two consecutive blocks for a one-hour consultation. If a consultation requires more than one hour, please schedule blocks of time on separate days so that no single consultation is more than one hour. Consultations can be scheduled up to 30 days in advance, and there is no advanced scheduling cutoff time(e.g., consultations for 3:00 p.m. can be scheduled at 2:59 p.m.).  

In addition to the standard weekly recurring office hours for both platforms (MDClone – Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and REDCap – Wednesdays from 2 to 4 p.m.), we will add additional time slots based on staff availability. 

Please note: Through November and December 2022, you can still join ad hoc using the Zoom links provided in the Virtual Office Hours Box folders (MDClone; REDCap) However, beginning in January 2023, you will be required to schedule MDClone Virtual Office Hours Consultations and REDCap Virtual Office Hours Consultations in advance using the Bookings pages. 

 You can also schedule consultations by clicking Services on our new Data Management and Sharing webpage!
