DHIS2 Android Settings Web App version 1.1.0 is released

Dear DHIS2 community,

We are pleased to inform you that the version (1.1.0) of the Android Settings web application has been released.

The web app features are intended to support admins in various functions of a DHIS2 Android Capture app implementation. These include configuring synchronization parameters for the DHIS2 Android Capture app, encrypting the local database of the Android devices, running tests on the size of data and metadata synchronized by a given Android user, among other features.

This version contains many improvements in the UI and several bug fixing. You can check all the related jira issues in the following link Android Settings 1.1.0

This web app is compatible with 2.35, 2.34, 2.33 and 2.32 . We recommend to always use these latest patch versions, as previous ones may have some issues that can compromise the functionality of the application.

If you plan to use this web app, the following considerations should be taken:

  • The use of this app will overwrite the local settings of all Android devices using the DHIS2 Android Capture app for a given DHIS2 instance.
  • In this version, only users with β€˜ALL’ authority are able to use this app to configure the parameters for synchronization, encryption, etc. Other users having access to this app, will be able to see the configuration but will not be able to edit any values.
  • If you select the encryption checkbox, this will affect the local database of all Android devices synchronizing with the server for a given DHIS2 instance.

As always, we welcome your feedback for any bugs you might detect, but also about the usability of the app and potential new features to include in future releases.
