Great work.

Hopefully we can soon provide an up to date demo at demo.dhis2.org.

Very nice.

Are you the only one to have access to edit?

I would suggest moving the top part of http://dhis2.org/node/12 further down, and put the Quick start section at the top. Also, underline even stronger that the second step is only necessary for people who are checking in code. In fact, I think it makes sense to move this point further down, since they need to be authorized to commit code, the SSH keys are not enough.

Hi,

A few comments/suggestions:

The demo link on http://dhis2.org/node/8 does not work. Maybe use Knut’s link for now.

I like the functionality page, it is attractive. Although I have a few suggestions to make it better cover all key aspects of DHIS.

Maybe add something like:

Edit all your metadata from the user interfaceAll metadata can flexibly be edited by the end user, such as what data elements to collect, the forms to use, the organisational hierarchy and much more.

Multidimensional data model
Improve data analysis and efficiency of data collection by creating custom dimensions to your data.

**Create your own validation rules to improve data quality
**Set up custom expressions that validate your data, e.g “Live births under 2500g <= Total live births”.

User management and access controlControl who has access to what using a fine-grained privilege system for user roles and users.

Set up your integrated data repository
In DHIS you can store any kind of aggregated/statistical data which means you can store and analyse data across data sources like service delivery, human resources, census data, and equipment.

And move web based pivots down a bit, as this is not really the main functionality of DHIS2.

I guess we can reduce the number of charts and number of maps a bit to better cover all the core functionality without having to scroll down to much.

Move the maps up a bit, they are attractive.

*Import data from other software
*Some smart remarks about openMRS, excel, and the standards compatible
with dhis

*export to other tools
*Get all your data into Excel pivot tables. Other tools? Stata etc?
Important for statisticians...

Some improvements to the dhis2 site:

- The domain dhis2.org can now be used.
- The sub-domains download.dhis2.org, doc.dhis2.org, and
dev.dhis2.orgpoints to the most interesting pages.
- A new functionality highlights page has replaced the screenshots
page.

I agree very much that import and export functionality is crucial. With new attractive features like Jan Henrik’s great GIS work, more and more people will be wanting to get their data, however collected, into DHIS 2. However, I am not sure we are yet in a position to brag about our capabilities on this front - there is still a lot of improvements needed. The ongoing SDMX work will help somewhat, but again, the more we can do to smooth and ease such processes the better.

I think there is a drupal config option to enable clean urls. And it depends upon Apache’s modrewrite. pathauto is just extra sugar to auto magically do the clean url naming for you.
