Removal of functionality

Hi all,

as we continue to develop and expand DHIS 2 to me it makes sense to
revise and eventually remove functionality which is not in active use
or is not of desired quality in order to keep the code base healthy.
In that regard I propose we remove the following functions:

- "Tally sheet generator" (in "Reports" module). It seems that most
places will remain with printed forms for a long time to come.

- "Sort order property" and "Display property" settings (under "User
general settings" in "Settings" module).

- "Gap analysis" (in "Data quality" module).

Is anyone using these? If I don't hear anything in a weeks time these
will be removed.

regards, Lars

Dear Lars this makes much sense, its good to reduce unused functionalities, am not using any of above but i would like to know from my colleagues if there is anyone using or have used Gap analysis to tell us because this feature looks important for Gaps or missing values during Data quality audit based on blank fields.

How about making a module or function for activating and/or de-activating such functionality.

Removing it completely might not be a very good idea as some people might need to use it ONE TIME.

Like Tally sheet generator is handy for those using tally sheets.....

Thanks

It'll be a good idea to create a module to activate/deactivate
functionality.
Things which might not be useful now could be used in future.

Thanks,

Dear Lars, I have not used these and I have no problem if they are removed. We can always request them if needed

Fine with me except perhaps for the gap analysis. Let me check first before you remove this bit.

Once you have removed this stuff, it would need to be removed from the documentation as well for the next release.

Dear all,

In Editing the created data element there is this option (Active*=yes&no) which appears after creation of data element (it appears while you try to edit the created data element).In case you put no or yes what is the effect of both in database, analysis or in the system? Since it has * it shows that it is a compulsory option that has an effect.

Hi Andrew,

sorry to say this property has no effect on the system. We will probably remove it soon.
