Here’s another practical user question. Sorry if it’s already been asked (I didn’t see an easy way to search the archives).
What’s the best approach for collecting data elements linked to different time periods? For example, I’m collecting leprosy data of new cases from 2011, treatment outcomes from PB cases that started treatment in 2010 and from MB cases that started treatment in 2009. Previously these were all collected in the same 1-page form. Is there a way to mix periods on the same form? Similarly, is there a way to put dynamic time periods in labels on the form, so I can put the year in bold at the top of each section to make sure users enter data for the correct year?
Thanks as always,
