Dear @marta

Are custom forms supported in this version? Thank you.

Dear @amuramira,

custom forms are not supported in this app. If you need custom forms, I would recommend testing the Dhis2 touch app from HISP Tanzania. You can find it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hipstz.dhis2.dhis2touch.

Tagging @ismail in case you need any support.

Hi Marta @marta,

Thanks so much for the progress! We will upgrade our database soon. We just wonder if we should install DHIS2 version 2.31 to test with the latest release of Android app, OR we should still use version 2.30. I guess DHIS2 version 2.31 is getting stable now?

Hi @lli,

well… that is a dificult question to answer generically. Stability depends mainly on the functionalities and modules that your implementation uses. In any case, it is always recommended a full test of the new version in your server before actually upgrading your DHIS2 version.

The app will work with both versions in any case. You do not need to update to test the Android App, if that was the question.
