Category combination set to default won't let me change it

Dear All,

I hope you are well.

I am trying to edit a category combination that is set to default…I would like to add a new combination.

attached is the screenshot.

Thanks,

Anne-grace

I see… are you sure any of the data elements listed there are of type date? When defining data elements there is an option to specify value type.


Thank you,

Abyot.

Dear Abyot,

Thanks for your prompt answer,

unfortunately i don’t have access to date in future,see attached picture.

Hi,

To enable capturing of future dates, go to your Program --> View program stages --> Edit then check “Date in future” for those data elements you wanted to capture future date.

I am not sure what you mean by “to be able to edit some fields names” ?

If you are in default form, field name is data element “Form name” (if you have set this one) or “Name” and it is always possible to edit this. If you are in custom form, you can put whatever name you want in your form - both data element “Form name” and “Name” have no effect.

Thank you,

Abyot.

Hi Anne,

Your Domain Type is Tracker and this is not yet supported. You can only have Category Combinations in Aggregate.

Dear all,

It’s 1 year on from when this shortcoming in DHIS2 was identified. Is the use of Category Combo supported in the Tracker now? If not, how did you manage to get around this requirement Anne (or anyone else)?

I have to enable the user to make multiple selections from a lookup/drop-down list. Since this is not supported in OptionSets I opted to use Categories Combinations linked to Data Elements of type “Yes Only”. The problem is that this is a single event without registration and hence the Domain Type is Tracker. Any suggestions?

Hi Crizelle,

we do not plan to support categories for tracker. The “tracker” domain type includes both single event and tracker programs. I know it is a bit misleading, we could potentially use “events” instead.

As mentioned before, we do not plan to support multiple selection within an option set, mainly because it will limit the analysis which can be done at a later stage.

Lars

Hi Lars,

Thanks for the quick response.

Noted that multiple selections within an option set won’t be supported.

It would make sense to include “Event” as a separate option for the “Domain Type”. Would categories then possibly be supported for Events if then not for Tracker?

The only other alternative is to create multiple Data Elements with Data Type “Yes Only” and possbly add some Program Sections to make it more user-friendly. This is OK, but really lengthens and clutters the data entry form.

Isn’t this two different things?

  1. We need to register Yes (or Yes/No) for each selected item in order to analyse on each of them, thus we need a number of data elements

  2. It would be nice to have a way of grouping data elements in the user interface even beyond sections, i.e. to use one widget for multiple data elements, like a multiple selection list box: http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-create-a-multiple-selection-list-box-in-jav.html

Hi Knut,

(1) If unable to use use Categories for Event data elements then yes, we have to be able to save each data value against a separate data element for analysis. The ability to reuse Category Options though (i.e assigning them to multiple Categories), greatly reduces the database configuration work required. For the current database I’m configuring I would have needed 24 Category Options, 4 Categories and 4 Cat Combos to enable each "Yes’ data value to be uniquely stored for analysis. Because Categories cannot be used for Event data elements, I had to create 93 Data Elements instead.

(2) If we have to live without Categories for Events, then it would be great to have a grouping feature beyond sections like the multiple selection box you suggested.

I am not sure what you mean by “to be able to edit some fields names” ?

If you are in default form, field name is data element “Form name” (if you have set this one) or “Name” and it is always possible to edit this. If you are in custom form, you can put whatever name you want in your form - both data element “Form name” and “Name” have no effect.

Hi Lars,

Thanks for the quick response.

Noted that multiple selections within an option set won’t be supported.

It would make sense to include “Event” as a separate option for the “Domain Type”. Would categories then possibly be supported for Events if then not for Tracker?

The only other alternative is to create multiple Data Elements with Data Type “Yes Only” and possbly add some Program Sections to make it more user-friendly. This is OK, but really lengthens and clutters the data entry form.

As mentioned before, we do not plan to support multiple selection within an option set, mainly because it will limit the analysis which can be done at a later stage.

I have to enable the user to make multiple selections from a lookup/drop-down list. Since this is not supported in OptionSets I opted to use Categories Combinations linked to Data Elements of type “Yes Only”. The problem is that this is a single event without registration and hence the Domain Type is Tracker. Any suggestions?

Dear Knut,

Thanks for this insight.

I agree with Crizelle, I am building an Inventory System using the tracker (2.21) and I am facing the same challenge. There is need to see how we can achieve similar “category Options - categories” functionality for events to avoid unnecessary hacks to the system.

Thanks.

Hi Knut,

(1) If unable to use use Categories for Event data elements then yes, we have to be able to save each data value against a separate data element for analysis. The ability to reuse Category Options though (i.e assigning them to multiple Categories), greatly reduces the database configuration work required. For the current database I’m configuring I would have needed 24 Category Options, 4 Categories and 4 Cat Combos to enable each "Yes’ data value to be uniquely stored for analysis. Because Categories cannot be used for Event data elements, I had to create 93 Data Elements instead.

(2) If we have to live without Categories for Events, then it would be great to have a grouping feature beyond sections like the multiple selection box you suggested.

Dear Knut,

Thanks for this insight.

I agree with Crizelle, I am building an Inventory System using the tracker (2.21) and I am facing the same challenge. There is need to see how we can achieve similar “category Options - categories” functionality for events to avoid unnecessary hacks to the system.

Thanks.

Alex

Hi Crizelle,

It could be quite instructive if you could share the details of this example with us.

Hi Knut,

(1) If unable to use use Categories for Event data elements then yes, we have to be able to save each data value against a separate data element for analysis. The ability to reuse Category Options though (i.e assigning them to multiple Categories), greatly reduces the database configuration work required. For the current database I’m configuring I would have needed 24 Category Options, 4 Categories and 4 Cat Combos to enable each "Yes’ data value to be uniquely stored for analysis. Because Categories cannot be used for Event data elements, I had to create 93 Data Elements instead.

(2) If we have to live without Categories for Events, then it would be great to have a grouping feature beyond sections like the multiple selection box you suggested.

Isn’t this two different things?

  1. We need to register Yes (or Yes/No) for each selected item in order to analyse on each of them, thus we need a number of data elements
  1. It would be nice to have a way of grouping data elements in the user interface even beyond sections, i.e. to use one widget for multiple data elements, like a multiple selection list box: http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-create-a-multiple-selection-list-box-in-jav.html

Hi Lars,

Thanks for the quick response.

Noted that multiple selections within an option set won’t be supported.

It would make sense to include “Event” as a separate option for the “Domain Type”. Would categories then possibly be supported for Events if then not for Tracker?

The only other alternative is to create multiple Data Elements with Data Type “Yes Only” and possbly add some Program Sections to make it more user-friendly. This is OK, but really lengthens and clutters the data entry form.

Hi Crizelle,

we do not plan to support categories for tracker. The “tracker” domain type includes both single event and tracker programs. I know it is a bit misleading, we could potentially use “events” instead.

As mentioned before, we do not plan to support multiple selection within an option set, mainly because it will limit the analysis which can be done at a later stage.

regards,

Lars

Dear all,

It’s 1 year on from when this shortcoming in DHIS2 was identified. Is the use of Category Combo supported in the Tracker now? If not, how did you manage to get around this requirement Anne (or anyone else)?

I have to enable the user to make multiple selections from a lookup/drop-down list. Since this is not supported in OptionSets I opted to use Categories Combinations linked to Data Elements of type “Yes Only”. The problem is that this is a single event without registration and hence the Domain Type is Tracker. Any suggestions?

Hi Anne,

Your Domain Type is Tracker and this is not yet supported. You can only have Category Combinations in Aggregate.

best regards,

I see… are you sure any of the data elements listed there are of type date? When defining data elements there is an option to specify value type.


Thank you,

Hi,

To enable capturing of future dates, go to your Program --> View program stages --> Edit then check “Date in future” for those data elements you wanted to capture future date.

I am not sure what you mean by “to be able to edit some fields names” ?

If you are in default form, field name is data element “Form name” (if you have set this one) or “Name” and it is always possible to edit this. If you are in custom form, you can put whatever name you want in your form - both data element “Form name” and “Name” have no effect.
