Support Request:

Is it possible to get data from another study without having to select the input in the study settings? For instance, if I wanted to get data from another study but I don't want my end-user to have to select it in the settings, or even know I'm using it in my own study. All I can find is a way to have a study input (which is selectable in the settings) and get the data from it that way. I'm used to other platforms where we can simply reference the study name in the code and it internally adds the study without displaying it, so that the data can be used.

It depends if there is what is called an Internal Study Calculation function available for the study.

Refer to:

When referencing another study on the chart, it is not necessary to use an Input to obtain the study ID, if you already know the study ID through another method.
