redcap_version = redcap_handler.get_redcap_version()
users = redcap_handler.get_users()
arms = redcap_handler.get_arms()
events = redcap_handler.get_events()
field_names = redcap_handler.get_field_names()
file = redcap_handler.get_file(record=1)
form_event_mapping = redcap_handler.get_form_event_mapping()
instruments_pdf = redcap_handler.get_instruments_pdf(output_file="./instruments.pdf")
instruments = redcap_handler.get_instruments()
project = redcap_handler.get_project_info()
report = redcap_handler.get_reports(1)
participant_list = redcap_handler.get_participant_list(instrument=instruments[-1]['instrument_name'])
records = redcap_handler.get_records()
date_range_begin = datetime.datetime.strptime("2019-10-10", "%Y-%m-%d")
date_range_end = datetime.datetime.strptime("2019-12-10", "%Y-%m-%d")
records = redcap_handler.get_records(date_range_begin=date_range_begin, date_range_end=date_range_end)
