Remove tracker associate data type

Dear community,
How are you modelling the relationships between the events and TEIs in your programs?

The product team at UiO has discussed the data type of tracker associate. It seems like the data type is not well supported in our apps, and it does not have any analytics support. At the same time we are strengthening the relationship support, both in terms of the apps and in the analytics capabilities. We are wondering wether its better to use development resources for strengthening the relationship support for all use cases where you link tracked entity instances to data, and remove the tracker associate data type all together.

We are anxious to hear from you in the community about any usage of the tracker associate data type, and especially if you see that the relationship functionality will not cover the use case well.

Best regards
Markus
