Data entry is performed by completing data entry form templates.
Data entry form templates can present different data entry formats: alphanumeric or numeric-only fields, multiple or single-select lists and widgets, which contain standardised information that can automatically be displayed on the data entry form template.
Once completed, a data entry form is ready to be saved or submitted for approval.
Your data entry form templates have been designed by your IMSMA administrator. Follow your local SOP or contact your IMSMA administrator for guidance on data entry formats.
