How do I make my intervention live?

Once you have developed, fully tested and piloted your intervention and are now happy and ready to send it out to end-users (participants, patients, trainees etc), you can upload it to our LifeGuide server or your own server and go live. Before you decide to use the LifeGuide server to host your intervention, please check our Use of LifeGuide Server Statement, which also gives details of the cost: https://www.lifeguideonline.org/releases/index.

Live interventions are hosted on a separate server to those hosted on the LifeGuide Community Website to minimise any disruption to live studies that are collecting data (we update the LifeGuide Community Server on Wednesday mornings and this won't affect intervention on the Live server).

If you would like us to host your intervention, you can arrange space on our server by completing a form and emailing it to the LifeGuide team. Please click on the following link to access the form: https://www.lifeguideonline.org/contact/index It is important for you to get in touch with us in advance (at least one week ahead) so we can do our best to meet your requirements.

IMPORTANT – Interventions must be fully tested before going live. Once a version had been put on the live server it CANNOT be modified. However, it may be possible to upload new versions of your interventions onto our server but the data you have already collected will be separate (in the Intervention Manager and in the Excel spreadsheet) to the data which will be collected when end-users view the new version of your intervention.
