short name in analysis modules

Hi Devs,

Just to make sure I wasn’t doing anything wrong before reporting this as a bug. Users should be able to choose whether to use ‘name’ or ‘short name’ for metadata in analysis modules. This should be set by each user under their profiles……this doesn’t seem to be working – Any similar experiences or how should this work?

Hi Dapo,

this feature did not completely make it into 2.13 and was unfortunately half-done. The setting was removed from 2.13 last week. Will implement as soon as we get time.

This should have a high priority, since many charts look quite stupid and often actually misleading/wrong with long names. Orgunit names present a particular challenge, as in many countries there is a need to have “double names” such as Lao+English, since Orgunit names are currently not translatable.

But I’m not sure I would want it to be a universal user choice, would perhaps feels more natural to have it as an option for each chart or map? Or maybe as a universal choice which could be overridden for particular resources.

Hi Lars,

Thought I should resuscitate this as it seems the fix did not make it to 2.14 ( at least as at now) . I think this feature is quite important especially for use of information in the DHIS . As Knut suggested it will be better to actually have the option set in each analysis module per user but implementing that will be quite a task I imagine. The original implementation that allows a user to define use of shortname vs longnames as a globalsetting will at least provide some shorterm solution while we look for more lasting answers.
