Searching for Event by Enrollment Date -- not working?

Version:2.21
Build revision:21018

​(We’ll be upgrading to 2.23 soon)

Our Program is set up with a Stage that uses Date of Enrollment as the Report Date to Use. We have given the Description of Report date its own name.

When I search for an existing registration for an Enrollment date I KNOW exists I get no results for mysearch (other searchable attributes do return results.) Furthermore, in the search box, the text before the Date still reads “Enrollment date” rather than taking our descriptor… this defeats the purpose a bit of adding our own description and could prove confusing to our users. Furthermore still, when I generate an Event Report simply querying all data values for all data elements for the program area, the “Event Date” can be included as one of the column dimensions gets pulled into the output has a header reads “Event Date”. But it apparently represents “Enrollment Date”. With so many date possibilities the inconsistent naming of each really adds confusion to the whole Tracker process. Am I misunderstanding the functionality of these date fields or was some of this corrected in later versions of DHIS?

Hi Laura,

Sorry that this slipped under the long list of issues to be fixed :frowning:

It is now fixed. Just give around half an hour for our server to build the latest war file and it will be ready for download.
