Tracker capture app displays the items in a different order

Hi Devs.

Please note I am facing a peculiar issue with the Tracker Capture App on the tablets.

The issue is, the data elements appear in a different order than what I have defined in the programme stage. For example, say I designed a data entry screen in the following order of data elements:

  1. First name
  2. Surname
  3. Date of Birth
  4. Sex

On the web interface (Tracker capture on computer), the order looks fine as defined above. But on the tablets, the Tracker Capture App displays the elements in a different order, something like:

  1. Surname
  2. Date of Birth
  3. First name
  4. Sex.

Since the order appears correctly on the computer, I don’t’ know what to do to make it to appear with the same order on the tablets.

Kindly assist me to fix this issue.

Thanks and regards

MSP

Hi Stanley,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I have done the ordering in the “section” side. As I have indicated, the order is fine on computers but different in tablets.

Hi,

Make sure you have sorted the data elements correctly in the “basic” section too - section sort order is not necessarily the same as the basic sort order, and sorting the section part does not simultaneously update the “basic” part.

Hi Calle.

Thanks for your help. It is working like a charm. I thought the sorting on Basic option is not needed when we use the Section option.

Thank you once again for taking your valuable time to assist us. I really appreciate. God Bless!

Hi

Yes, normal thinking/logic says that section sorting (possibly even custom sorting) should automatically re-sort the “basic” list too (aka the “sort_order” field in the programstagedataelement table), but it does not. I wrote a JIRA issue for it some time back (DHIS2-4322), and Jose did another one (DHIS2-4528) - they are supposed to have resolved the issue. So you might want to consider upgrading to a newer build (assuming you are using 2.29 or 2.30)

Regards

Calle
