Aggregated Data Capture using Android app

Dear All,
We want to capture our aggregated data (HF1 to HF8 forms) at CHC level
(partial electricity & network coverage) to an android device and
later synced all information to our cloud hosting instance. Please can
anyone help me with the procedures to achieve it. I will also like to
know the challenges colleagues face and their approach to tackle these
issues.

Thanks in advance for your help.
Regards,

Gerald

Hi Gerald,

Do you questions regarding android specifically or more about configuration part of the server?

Araz,
This is very new to me and i will like to know the best possible way
we should implement this project. Please if you can kindly share
everything with reference to similar project(s), i will be grateful.
Also i know there will be challenges with reference to android
devices, so i am kindly requesting that you should advice on the best
android tablet specification for this project.

Araz,

I’ve just assisted Gerald with getting into the “Data capture for DHIS2” app - the server is running 2.25 and we downloaded the latest app from Google store.

What is really perplexing is that the app only shows ONE data set - the one called “Population estimates”. Furthermore, the data elements under that data set are old elements that were removed over a month ago - and none of the current population data elements are showing.

I cannot see any menu option for refreshing the database or anything like that - there is only “Aggregate Report” and then “Choose Organisation Unit”.

Is that app supported under 2.25?

Regards

Calle

Dear Araz & Colleagues,
Please i am really out of ideas; any help from OpCo who had done this
implementation before. Kindly remember that the key here is to do data
entry off-line using tablets and once they are on-line their tablets
should sync with the main server and all data are then uploaded.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

**@Calle, **

In order to refresh metadata / data you either need to use pull-to-refresh gesture within “Aggregate Report” screen or just let android app to sync automatically (background service is invoked whenever device gets online). I will add refresh button in the next release, in order to make it more explicit (feel free to create an issue in jira).

Aggregate data capture supports DHIS 2 starting from 2.23 and up to 2.26. If it fails to sync, there are changes or backports which could break API. If you notice this, please create a report in jira (including revision number of DHIS 2 instance).

**@Gerald, **

I guess a good place to start with android for DHIS 2 can be this document. Please, let us know if you have any specific questions.

Best regards,

Dear Araz,
I do not know if it had been done before or not because i am not
having much feedback from my DHIS2 colleagues which means i rely
totally on you for this project to be successful.

We want to take Data Entry to chiefdom level and at this level we have
limited electricity and Internet connectivity. In that case we are
thinking of a tablet app that can store data offline and then
automatically sync those offline data into the central server when the
tablet is online.

My questions:
1. Do we have any extra technicalities
2. Can you give us hardware recommendation for this implementation

Dear Gerald,

I will be happy to help, but unfortunately I can’t. I am not the one who is deciding on projects and development priorities at DHIS 2. If you have any specific issues with data capture for android, just report them on JIRA. For the projects themselves, I guess you need to communicate with our managers. I have included Ola (our senior project manager) and Erling (android team lead).

Best regards,
