When manually entering data into a text field in an OpenClinica form using Firefox, OpenClinica provides pop-up 'auto-complete' information (i.e. a list of previously entered Adverse Event Descriptions beginning with 'H'). This can be useful (i.e. choosing a previous value saves typing...). However, one of our users has commented that it "distracts from the actual data entry and is even a form of bias" when entering data. A particular example is when entering Lab Data values, where a previously entered value from an earlier subject may be selected, rather than the correct value for the current subject
Is there a way to turn off the 'auto-completion' feature within
OpenClinica by default (using "autocomplete=off" in the Form HTML somewhere?), rather than having to rely on users changing their own
browser settings to disable saving 'Search and Form history'?
Does anybody else have a similar problem, and how did you manage to resolve this?
