What is use of drop-down selection "Combination of categories" in dataset edit form ?

Hello Devs,

While creating data sets, i found there is a drop-down selection “Combination of categories”, which appears with default value in drop-down. Can anybody on list define its use in developing or designing a dataset or data entry form in DHIS2 ?

Hi Brajesh

The combination of categories are attributes on the later versions. It is typically used to generate multiple forms of the same dataset e.g if you have multiple service providers providing services at the same health facility you could set it up that each capture their portion of the services. If you select the attribute as a data dimension you can also analyse data by this dimension. And can also limit their access under more options on user role to only view data for that dimension.

Hope this helps.
