Multiple Tracked Entities in One Program

Is it possible to use multiple tracked entities in a Tracker Program?

A use case for example is a commodity logistics/inventory tracking program with multiple tracked entities e.g. equipment, consumables, etc.

Hello Ifeanyi,
I think it’s not possible. I think you can use the same structure of Tracker Program for each entity tracked with the same Data elements.

Thank you @riddy_ndoma.

If I understand you correctly, we would have to create multiple programs with the different tracked entities?

Yes. You’ll need to create different programs for each TE that you intend to track. You can reuse same elements across different programs.

Hi @ifeanyiokoye ,

A program is locked to a single Tracked Entity Type. This means you need separate programs for each type. You can however use Relationships to create a link between your Tracked Entity Instances to connect them directly. You can do this by creating a RelationshipType in the maintenance app, and connecting them in the Tracker Capture / Capture app.


Thank you @Stian.

Will chew on this.
