Android Tracker Capture - Problems with Data elements length not displaying and Program stage sections (tabs)

Hi all,

I’m having some difficulties working with Data Elements on Android’s Tracker Capture App.

For data elements with value type INTEGER, where option sets are used, the questions get cut off when the length exceeds the width of the screen (image #1).

The majority of my data elements are long and start out with similar wordings and have the same option sets for answers thus, all questions look exactly the same without the full length being displayed.

On the other hand, when the value type is BOOLEAN, the question automatically gets moved to the next line (image #2).

Is there a workaround for this and what would be the best solution for this?

The second issue is whenever there are multiple Program Stage Sections (which are displayed as tabs on Android) in a Program Stage, they seemed really unstable and the tabs keep on navigating/switching back and forth when a field is being populated.

For instance, when I’m on a question on the fourth tab, as soon as I select an answer from an option set, while the data is trying to sync, I’m automatically redirected to the very first tab (program stage section) even though I was working on another section.

Moreover, when I’m working on a particular tab (program stage section), the current active tab should be highlighted/underlined (as seen on image #1), but most of the time it isn’t (as seen on the second image).

It seems to be quite buggy, and I’m not sure what’s causing this issues. Any insights on this would be great.

Thank you.

Cheers,

Cha

Hi Marta,

Thank you for your response to the first question. My second question is in regards to the Program Stage Section (or multiple tabs) on Android, we noticed the issues where the tabs kept on switching back and forth. Whichever tab we are currently working on, many times we’d automatically be switched back to the very first tab. What could be causing this problem?

Sincerely,

Cha

Hi Cha,

you are right, we have had those reports in jira and have identified the tabs to be a bit unstable.

We have redesigned them to a different more stable layout. The new design will be released in the next versions (not the next 1.0.4 but the following ones - from December).

Best,

Marta
