Complimentary Tutorial This introductory set of tutorial videos are designed for administrators (3 video tutorials) , QA (1 video), end-users (5 video tutorials), and archivists (1 video tutorial) of Certara Integral.  Administrator tutorials familiarize administrators with Integral security and folder organization.  The Admin and QA tutorial shows how to obtain Integral system audit reports End-user tutorials explain how to use the Integral Phoenix Client, the Integral Client Application and the integral Web Client.  The Phoenix Client is designed to be used by Phoenix users.  The tutorial takes a first time user through the basics of using Certara's Integral with the Phoenix client. You see how to create studies, upload data, and link analyses between the two tools. We show how data changes are recorded and tracked when updates are made to the source data.  The second end-user tutorial teaches users how to use Integral with other agnostic analysis tools using the Phoenix Client App.  The third tutorial discusses how to use the Integral Web-Client for users that might not be doing analysis but need access to the data in Integral. The archivist tutorial provides a high level review of Integral and demonstrates how to lock and unlock folders. In addition the 'What is New in Integral' sections outlines changes done to Integral in the newer versions. Module 12 has tips for using integral.  For example how to share an integral Phoenix project with someone who doesn't have Integral. Read More
