Interesting Community Discussions and Activity - #copmonthly Jan 2023

Our community members started this year with a great motivation to support each other and have interesting discussions with DHIS2 experts. The discussions included security questions, server questions, and as usual app development discussions as well as an invitation for the community to participate with ideas for an EMIS solution. What are the discussions that interest you the most? We’ll highlight some of the topics below, but first let’s highlight the top topics of the month.

Top Topics in the Community for January 2023

The first top topic of the month with the most views is the Weekly Server Admin Meeting Series announcement. You can find the links to the invitation as well as the recordings in the topic.

In less than 24 hours before posting this monthly post, an exhaustive user-story from Uganda posted by Prosper Behumbiize became the most liked post of the month:

Glad to be part of this. January was another milestone month for me in understanding how the Data Visualizer app and dashboard work. But I am still exploring and discovering more possibilities with the implementation of Visualizer, Legends and Widget dashboard especially from third party API… But I will use the bulk of this month on USSD implementation and working on the database and the server.

I look forward to more support from the community.
