In November 2022, the MyCap External Module (EM) was integrated into the REDCap core code (REDCap version 13.0). MyCap features and functionality are the same, but the user interface differs depending whether you are using the EM or REDCap to configure MyCap for your project.

To determine the version of REDCap available at your institution, look in the bottom right corner of any REDCap.
