Dates in Analytics Blue Print

How does this blueprint work? https://blueprints.launchpad.net/dhis2/+spec/dates-in-analytics

Is there a documentation to that effect? I am thinking this blue print can help me achieve the following:

  1. Capture a date when an incentive was paid on a particular indicator, and display this date on a report. For example, an indicator for August could have an incentive paid in October.

  2. Use the date when an incentive was paid in the report to determine which values to display on the report. For example, I may want to make sure once a date has been captured, certain values have to be displayed on a report.

Regards,

Moses

I sense that you want to create some kind of report at the lowest org unit level where you want the date just to display as it was captured and not aggregated - correct?

Yes, this is exactly what I want to do. How can I add this column to a report so that my report displays the date captured. If the pivot table can not display the data element, can a report display it?

I am really stuck!

Hi Morina,

data of type “date” are not being aggregated at all in DHIS 2, so it will currently not be view-able in analysis at all.

I sense that you want to create some kind of report at the lowest org unit level where you want the date just to display as it was captured and not aggregated - correct? In that case we could look into just rendering dates as they are, like we do with text-type data (no aggregation).

regards,

Lars

My system is DHIS2.14 and PostgresQL 9.3

I have configured a data element of Value Type Date to hold a date. However, I am not sure which Aggregation operator should be used. Sum and average do not seem to make sense on Value Type date.

My data element with value type date can store the data entered on a data entry form, BUT that value can not be displayed in a pivot table. My data element has Aggregation operator Sum (which does not make sense for a date), I also tried Average.
