Hi George, are you using the core DHIS2 for your program, or have you made a custom program? What instance are you using 2.3…? Very interesting use case!

He’s using 2.34 and it’s all core. No customization.

The scanning is done using a cellphone in the DHIS2 android app, so as long as your phone has battery you can scan.
