In Need of Help regarding daily data

Hi all,

During community activities, CHWs collect aggregate data on paper forms daily. Each CHW can fill in 1, 2, 3 or 4 paper forms per day. I have built a dataset with period as daily in the DHIS 2 for data entry. As data entry must be by chw, we would like to know what other dimensions we can add to allow the data clerk to enter data of, for example, 3 forms completed by CHW X on 2/8/2023.

I look forward to your great ideas.


Hi @hernandezmachava

Is there a reason why each form need to be separate? Couldn’t the values be updated during the day? In other words, if the data set has the same form i.e. same period, OU, as well as data elements then it makes sense to update the form?

If updating values wouldn’t work. It could be possible to create more than one dataset (form 1, form 2, form 3…etc). Or to have more than one section in the same dataset (Section 1: form1, Section 2: form 2…etc) Maybe you could explain more about the use case? Why is it important to have values into different forms rather than updating the same form?

Thank you!
