Following up and trying to connect with people who have used this integration… I have the Kobo-DHIS2 set up on a test DHIS2 instance and I’ve successfully submitted test data through Kobo and synced it into DHIS2. Have other people used this in the field? I’d love to talk about some questions I have:
- Once created, can the DHIS2 metadata be revised/renamed? I’m assuming it’s linked through the code and not the name - in analytics, it’s not appealing to have all the data elements be KB-XXXXX and then a long question name. The tables and graphs are messy. Do you end up using program indicators for everything?
- I am trying to test the answer to question 1 by changing the metadata names in DHIS2 and submitting new forms, but DHIS2 is saying no new submissions since last sync, though I have submitted new test forms in Kobo. Have you found whether new submissions in Kobo are available in real-time to DHIS2?
- Has anyone found a way to incorporate submissions from Kobo into tracker programs or into EXISTING event programs? It seems that if I create the integration, but then move the newly created data elements to a tracker program stage, it can no longer sync. And I can’t figure out how to map the Kobo data into an existing event form that I’ve already created.
Let me know if you have insight or experience with this integration and how you’ve used it! Thanks!
