Navigating Workspaces in ARROW

What is a workspace?

A workspace is the term used to describe different types of homepages in ARROW. Each type of workspace has different features study teams can use. ARROW has several types of workspaces. For study teams, the two most important workspaces are:

  • Personal workspace: The first page everyone will see after logging in to ARROW is their personal workspace. Personal workspaces have several important features, including the inbox and ways to search for and access studies in ARROW.

  • Study workspace: Each study in ARROW has its own workspace. The study workspace serves as the “file” for the study in ARROW. This includes a history of all actions taken for that study as well as tabs where IRB correspondence and approved documents will be available for download.

How do I access each of these workspaces?

  • Personal workspace: The personal workspace can be accessed at any time by clicking the My Home link in the upper right hand corner of any page in ARROW.
  • Study workspace: To get to a particular study’s workspace, search for the study in your personal workspace and then click on that study’s link to access the study workspace.

How do I access the application for a particular study?

To access a study’s application, navigate to the study workspace. To do this, search for the study you want by using the search filters in your personal workspace. When you locate the study, click on the study link and this will take you to the study workspace.

To access the application in the study workspace, click on the Edit/View Application button on the left hand menu.


Do continuing reviews, changes, and reportable events have their own workspaces?

Yes. Each continuing review, change, and reportable event has its own submission workspace, which is very similar to a study workspace. These submission workspaces are accessed through the tabs for each type of submission in the main study workspace.


I’m lost. What should I do?

If you are navigating through different workspaces and get lost, try the following:

  • Click on the My Home link in the upper right hand corner to take you back to your personal workspace. From your personal workspace, you can search for a study using the filters in any of the tabs.  When you find the study, click on the study link to return to that study’s workspace.

Tips on Navigating Workspaces

  • If you get lost, click on My Home to return to your personal workspace.
  • To locate a particular study, use the search filters in your personal workspace.
