Support With Checkbox/Multiple select

Hi Asiz=2C
This is not supported with a single data element. You will need to create m=
ultiple data elements of type Yes Only or Yes/No for this for each of the =
services which might be offered.=20
Regards=2C
Jason

Dear all=2CI am trying to create event without registration and i am trying=
to capture a data element where i need to select more than one Value. For =
eg: Service offered by Facility which might be more than one. How do we add=
ress these types of cases in DHIS2?

Thanks for your quick response. As I have already mention i have got nearl=

st. I have got another scenario where i have to register my provider. In th=

need to create 45 data elements to capture the details. I am afraid to imp=
