When a specific value is known, it will cause other fields on forms to automatically fill without requiring data entry. Errors on the initial source will repeat on future forms. If an error is noted, the source fields must be corrected.


This feature shows the path of screen changes that the user took in the application since logging in. These screen changes, separated by (>) brackets, display at the top of the current screen. Clicking on a breadcrumb will navigate to that screen.


CIBMTR Research ID is a secure identification number that is assigned to each recipient upon their first infusion by using the CRID tool in the FormsNet3 application. The CRID number will always remain the same on all CIBMTR forms for this recipient.

Potential CRID Duplicates

A CRID that has several data points that match an already existing CRID. Potential duplicates will be displayed on the processing page after the user has created a CRID.

Disabled Field

A field that is not available for data entry due to the answer of a previous question.

Enabled Field

A field on the form that is available for data entry.

Events and Actions

Upon form submission, answers to certain fields trigger emails and/or specific forms to come due for completion.

Expand or Collapse

Each section in a form can be expanded or collapsed depending on how the user would like to view the form. This allows the ability to view section bars as open with all questions displaying (expanded) or closed with just the section bar showing (collapsed).


Each question on a form consists of one or more spaces where data is entered.

Field Change History

If a user changes the answer to a question on a form that was previously submitted, a pop-up box will appear next to the changed field. The user must select a reason code to explain why the answer was changed before navigating away from that field.

Field icons

Appear to the left of the question number within a form and are based on the answer given to that question. They indicate the question status, examples: error, locked.

Form Track Row

Each form will have a designated row within any Forms grid. The row allows the user to access the action icons and view overall details for each form.

Form Status

The form status indicates to the user the progression of the form. The current status of the form is displayed on the Forms Grid.

When the Recipient or Donor Center is unable to provide follow-up data, on a visit by visit basis, for a required time point, they can be declared as Lost to Follow-up.


Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a Microsoft program which functions as the directory management service for CIBMTR. Data Managers use the same LDAP username to enter several CIBMTR programs, including: FormsNet3, MatchSource, and SearchLink.

Non-Override Validation

Some fields have “non-override” validations that require an answer. If the answer does not meet the validation rule, an override code cannot be selected.

Override Code

When a field doesn’t meet the validation rule, a reason code must be selected to describe why the validation rule was not met.

Question Enabling

Form questions are enabled based on answers to previous questions. This feature ensures that all appropriate questions within a form are being answered.

Quick Links

These hyperlinks are at the top of every screen. One click on a Quick Link takes you to another window or tab, without leaving your current screen.

Recipient Legacy Forms

Forms processed through NMDP and IBMTR-Milwaukee prior to December 2007 are referred to as Legacy Forms. Forms that were processed in the original FormsNet2 are viewable in FormsNet3. Legacy forms are still used by both our internal staff and external network.

Save (Saving)

The system automatically saves each field as it is entered and you leave the field.


Formerly known as “Process”, now the “Submit” button is the final icon to click on to send the data to the CIBMTR database.


Rules that check for accuracy of data entered into the system. These rules look for acceptable data entry responses, words, or number ranges for each field to ensure the data is clean, correct, and useful.
