The official Capture app is now ready for beta testing, and can be downloaded from the App Store. The Capture app is currently reimplementing the functionality of Event Capture. Are you running single event programs on a DHIS2 version of 2.30 or newer, then we hope you will download the app and participate in the beta testing. Bugs can be reported in Jira under the component “[App] Capture”. Any discussions, questions or suggestions are also welcome.
In the short term the Capture app is scheduled to completely replace Event Capture in 2.31. The ultimate plan for Capture is to also support Tracker programs, and then the Aggregate data entry.
Happy testing - we look forward to your feedback!
Best regards - on behalf of the tracker team,
**Known limitations **
We are working to implement the following known limitations in the current beta version(0.9.2) of the Capture app:
Pickers for coordinates and polygons does not yet support address searching.
Custom form not yet supported - any custom forms will be shown as a default form in the current version.
Non-gregorian calendars not supported.
How to install
If you want to test on play.dhis2.org/2.30, you will find the Capture app installed there.
If you want to test on your own 2.30 or 2.31 snapshot DHIS2 instance, install the Capture app from App Management:
- Open the App Management app.
- From “App Store”, Install the “Capture - Beta 2” app:
- Also, remember to give your user roles for capturing single event data the extra “Capture app” authority. This is done in the “Apps” section of a user role.
