2.16 Event Capture app

Hi - we have been working with the latest 2.16 (Aug 20), and we noticed a couple of omissions (or bugs?) on the event capture app:

  • Listing page: date is not displayed as a column – we think it will be nice to have it there as a column - otherwise you need to edit the event to figure out the actual date.
  • Radio buttons at Data Entry Time: the option to render controls as radio buttons doesn’t seem to work - they always display as drop downs
  • Form names don’t render on the form - instead it uses the full name
  • Form section don’t render
    if possible, let us know if they are likely to be fixed now, or if they will be part of future (2.17) version.

Rodolfo & EH

Hi Rodolfo,

Thank you for the feedback. Yes those features are missing, will try to implement them.

Hi Abyot - that’s great news. I guess that we are talking about 2.17? or are they likely to make it to 2.16?

Since these are quite a number of features, hence a bit of work, fixing them in trunk/2.17 is easier. but if you insist for 2.16 as well, I will try to replicate.

just a question on the form name part - what do you mean “instead it uses the full name”? I know the form name is not displayed, so you want that to be displayed?

About the form name: in the previous version, and similar to the behaviour of Data Sets on the aggregated side, if a Data Element has a value on the field ‘Form Name’, that’s the label that it is rendered on the data-entry screen. At the moment the Data Element name (which I referred on my email as full name) is the one that it is showing, ignoring the ‘Form Name’ value. - sorry for any confusion.

but I can see that working - I mean if a data element has form name it displays otherwise falls back to data element full name. it could be a cache issue - have you cleared and tried?

Hi Rodolfo,

The following are now implemented both in trunk and 2.16.

  • display of event dates and event uid as columns in the event list. if program stage is configured to pre-generate event uid, then the system generates the uid during data entry. This helps users to write down the id on corresponding paper forms for later reference.

  • radio buttons in default form. radio buttons in custom form are not supported at the moment.

  • display of sections

  • use of data element form name - I haven’t done much on this. It works from my side. But let me know if this is still not working.

Thank you,

Abyot.
