Data elements not showing in data set creation view

Hello.

Hopefully someone can help me understand this behavior. I’ve attached pictures showing I’ve created a series of data elements, but when I try to create a dataset, they are not listed under the available datasets. I’ve made sure this user has power user clearance and the orgunit assigned to him.

Is this behavior expected? How can I fix this?

Thanks for the help.

Hi Jesus,
could it be that you set the "Domain type" property of the data elements to "Tracker" rather than "Aggregate"? Data sets are for aggregate data, and you can therefore only add data elements with domain type aggregate.

Hello Olav.

Thanks for the very quick reply! This was indeed the problem. I have to say it’s very hard to get started with this system. Before I tried to find the difference between tracker and aggregate types in the user manual but I couldn’t find it. I (wrongly) assumed I needed trackers since a lot of my dimensions are values that cannot be aggregated anyway.

I really appreciate your help. Can you recommend any (free) training besides the user/dev manuals? Like a handbook of sorts.

Regards.

HI Antonio,
There is a lot to learn. I would recommend that you start with the free online fundamentals course and continue to read through the learning materials listed on the UiO site.

Good luck!

Nicola
