The Monthly reporting period for Tracker stage not allowing entry of previous months

Dear Abyot,

In the stage setting, when you allow repeated and a frequency of monthly, the system doesn’t allow you to enter previous date.

Is this by design or a bug

Hi Prosper,

Yes, this is by design. If you want to enter dates, then you shouldn’t set any period.

The backward button will get to inactive mode for those periods that fall behind the enrollment date (incident date).

On another note: this periodic program stage setting is only for data entry. Internally we are using dates. For example, when you select a month the system automatically picks the last date of the month and uses that as event date.

Thanks very much Abyot for the quick response,

This makes sense actually hadn’t figured that out

BUT you may need to cross check the code; its based on incidence date not enrollment date. I have played around with both enrollment and incidence date and its base don the incidence date

Below the Incidence date is in Jan and enrollment in March, but when you go to entry it allows entry all the way to Jan

Should have stopped at March

It should be based on incidence date … the woman could be enrolled after two months she got pregnant.

Thanks Abyot again for the quick response given it past your working hours and already tomorrow in Asia.

In this ANC use case it makes sense to base it on incidence date but not for all cases because incidence date doesn’t not necessary relate enrollment.

For like HIV use case one can use the incidence date as either date of HIV testing positive or date started on ARVs if the interest is on how long someone has known he/she is HIV positive or how long he/she has been on treatment

In this case there may be visits between enrollment and either of these incidence dates that may be stages in between.

May be you need to base it on the earliest date! or even leave it open many use cases will use incidence date differently and should affect backlog entry.

Also hope you remember the ability to change enrollment date and incidence date, because it would help in trying to enter the backlog.

Regards

I think we have program setting for that?
