Please don’t miss out all the #dac2023 announcements by @aliceal :pray: (check out #dac2023) Additionally, there are a couple of announcement posts that received a lot of views and responses. First, there’s the patch-release for 2.38 announcement, and the new requirement to use JDK 17. Second, there are two academy announcements, one in South Africa and another in Jordan.

Two user-story topics that receive the credit of being top topics:

Finally, DHIS2 core team member @brian shares an interesting resource for community members to check out: DHIS2 Toolkit for Antenatal Care (ANC) Registry is Released

That’s good! Thanks, what about the third building block (period?) Is there a place where we can select all three at once? :grin:

The three building blocks of DHIS2 can be easily seen from within the data visualiser app.

Whenever you are querying your instance for data you need to specify “the three W’s”.

The what (data elements), the where (organisation units), and the when (periods).

You can see them in api queries too!
