Custom forms - disable / enable sections

Is it possible to hide or show certain sections (tabs) of custom forms by facility based on some facility property? We are trying to avoid having multiple forms for various services and present them on a single page with multiple tabs if possible, but we want to be able to hide tabs that are irrelevant for certain facilities.

Thanks in advance for any ideas!

Hi Edward,

this is a popular request; unfortunately we do not have a specific feature for this.

One option is to come up with a few facility “profiles” and create new data sets for each, while re-using the same data elements within the data sets, then assigning the data sets to the org units accordingly.

We are getting requests for several variants of this feature:

a) assigning data elements to facilities directly

b) assigning sections to facilities directly

c) assigning data elements to org unit groups within a group set

c) assigning sections to org unit groups within a group set

I assume your request is similar to d)? Would be good if you can explain a bit more about your usecase.

best regards,

Lars

Got into a similar use case today where I need to filter data elements based on Org Unit selected for Data Entry.
