Assign value to a tracked entity attribute with an option set

Hello,

Using program rules, can I assign value to a tracked entity attribute with an option set?

In other words, I want the answer option selected for my tracked entity attribute to be dependent on a data element in the current stage.

I have a YES_Only data element called “Recommendation progressed at law stage?”. If this data element is ticked off I want my tracked entity attribute to be assigned with ‘Law’ answer option.

This is the rule I have built, that does not seem to be working.

**1) ** Expression - “Recommendation progressed at law stage?” == 1

**2) ** Assign value – Stage == ‘Law’

Can anyone tell me what is the correct expression to compose, (if values can be assigned to data elements with option sets at all)?

Thanks a lot,

Georgi

Hi there Gorgi!

You mention a "Yes only" data element, but did you mean a "Yes only" tracked entity attribute? Meaning, is the checkbox and the dropdown both located inside same registration/profile form?

If they are, you can make a rule in the way you describe below. The correct expression would be:
A{recLawStage} == true
(Assuming you make a program rule variable called recLawStage for the "Yes only" question)

Best regards,
Markus

Hi Markus,

I do mean a “Yes only” data element, not attribute. Basically, at data entry if the data element is ticked off I want a program rule to automatically assign value to a tracked entity attribute (which is an option set). Do you think this is possible and what would be the correct expression for assigning the value?

On another note, “Yes only” data elements work with both “1” and “true” in expressions.

Thanks for your input!

Georgi

Ok, that makes it a bit more tricky. You probably want to assign and save tracked entity instance attributes while filling in data in an event. The problem with this is that the assignments to tracked entity attributes will be triggered when you are in the registration form, or if you open the edit profile widget - but generally not when you enter data in program stages.

There has been a few requests to allow assigning TEI attributes from everywhere in the program, and we can conceivably support this properly. Please consider creating a Jira issue describing your use case.

Is it a possible workaround to make program indicators that would query both the data element and the tracked entity attribute?

Thanks for this explanation, Markus! It will definitely be useful to be able to assign TE attribute values from within data entry. I will report this issue in JIRA.

For program indicators, my workaround will be to use only tracked entity attributes for calculation. I have created program rules that will warn data entry people to change the attribute value using the name of the stage at which the entity is at. The rules will be ran, based on the response of a data element at data entry.

Thanks again for your thoughts!

Georgi
