Event program start date / end date question

Hi all,

I am designing an event capture that will be used to asses services provided at the district level. I would like to hear ideas from the community. The evaluators will have to enter two dates: start date ( the date the assessment activity begins) and end date (the date the assessment ends): How can I configure these two dates? I was thinking of configuring the start date as the default report date? Am I on the right path? what about the end date?

For data captured manually in excel, we have the following image.


Hi @hernandezmachava
I think you are right for using the report date (incident date) as the start date, and if we assume that members can complete the programstage at the same day as the end date then I would say to do that but I assume the entry could happen during a different time and place which means for end date I can’t think of anything other than a data element.

Hi @Gassim,

Let me add more information: What we have is a long assessment tool divided by long different sections: each section will contain its data elements. it should noted that each section will be completed by a different member

Section 1: Monitoring
Section2: Pharmacy’
Section 3 HR,

Regarding the dates, if the first member logs in today and fills the data on monitoring, they should select September 5, 2022 as start date, but if the second member logs in tomorrow, he will fill data about pharmacy without selecting any date. If the third member logs in the day after tomorrow and fills data on HR, which is the last section of the assessment tool, he will have to select the end date which would be September 7, 2022.

This is the scenario and I hope it’s clear now
