Creating a new user org unit

Hi there,

I’m a new user to DHIS2, working on the Kenyan platform to pull data for a list of 30 facilities. I’m using the pivot table mode, but it’s very cumbersome to select the 30 facilities I need from the national list. I believe it would be easiest to create a "user org unit” to do this, but I’m struggling how to set this up. Would you be able to advise on the way to do this? Or if there’s a better and quicker way for me to select the 30 facilities I need?

Thanks,
Gareth

Dear Gareth,

There are number of ways in which you can select out desired facilities through use of the different Orgunit selection other the method you are using. You can base on a group of facilities or level in the hierarchy.

  1. Select by Level will allow you line list at any given level in the hierarchy for a given hierarchy. E.g when a districts is highlighted, you can select all facilities in that districts or all facilities in the entire country while national is highlighted.

  2. Select groups: Facilities could have been grouped and you only want facilities in a given group or groups. Say only private facilities in a given district or region or public facilities, hospitals…

Regards

Hi Ghareth,

I think what you need is a new org unit group. Then you could use the “selection mode” in the org unit section to select it.That is currently restricted to the admin team to perform. You could list the facilities you need and write to the kenya ministry of health.

This gets me thinking that it would be good to allow people to create private org unit groups.

Also, you could create a pivot table favorite where you select a few data elements, then all of your organisation units. Next time, you just load the favorite, change your data elements or whatever, and load or save the pivot. That way you will only have to the inconvenient selection once.

regards,

Lars
