From the Submissions page, users may drill down to an individual submission by clicking on a row in the submissions table. Clicking on a row in the table will open the Session Details page for that submission and display the variables that have been configured for the activity, the internal (automatically-collected) variables, and the data that has been captured within them. This page is organized into tables that represent each collection configured in the activity shown in configuration order. The tables then list the variables in those collections, also in configuration order.
The Root collection is the default collection that contains all configured variables not contained in other collections. There may or may not be a Root collection on the Session Details page for a submission depending on the configuration of the activity that collected the data. The DatStat Internals collection is another default collection that is not configurable by any user and contains internal variables defined by DatStat as basic data for every activity. Every Session Details page will contain this collection.
The table headings for each collection include:
- Variable: The name of the variable in the activity.
- Description: The prompt of the question or the data dictionary description of the variable if a prompt does not exist, provided by the user who programmed the variable.
- Code: The code for a configured response option.
- Actual Value: The label for a configured response option or the actual text entered by the participant in the activity.
This table can be sorted by any of these 4 columns by clicking on the sorter icon next to the column header.
The collections shown on the Session Details page can be filtered so that only the collection required by the user is shown on the page by clicking on the Collection drop down in the page heading and selecting the desired collection from the list. By default, this drop down is set to show All collections.
Each collection can be individually searched by using the search bar at the top of the collection table. Typing into the search box will immediately begin to filter out rows in the table whose variable names do not contain any of the letters typed into the search box. Click the x at the end of the box to clear the search and return the table to its normal state.
