Custom data entry forms compatibility

Hi all,

just wanted to inform you that we have done a modification in custom data entry forms which means that you can not downgrade from version 2.4-SNAPSHOT (latest development preview) to version 2.3.

Sorry for this - the custom forms had not been changed for years and needed an overhaul in order to load faster and be compatible with new browser versions. The upgrade will happen automatically and there is no need for any action on your side.

Hi Lars,
Thanks for the Update.

You had recommended using section forms for some of the lengthy Uganda HMIS forms (Inpatient and Outpatient). I am wondering whether the upgrade would produce more or less the same result as the section forms if we were to revert the lengthy forms to custom forms.

Sam.

Hi Sam,

no we still recommend using section forms wherever possible as the section forms are easier to set up (no HTML designing), easier to maintain (keep track of removed data elements etc), most often have nicer layout and still smaller in size (in terms of network transfer).
