Questions during the session (from the zoom chat):
Hi, I am Philip M. Mckay from Liberia, will the Android work on iPad device and in remote areas Liberia?
These are very useful improvement, will the 2.5 apps work on any Android device?
hi @philip27 , unfortunately supporting iOS is not in the roadmap. About Android devices, yes in principle. However, I would suggest you to check with us in the community if you want to confirm a specific device.
@philip27 Philip M. Mckay just clarifying that the DHIS2 Android App will run on smartphones and tablets. The only requirement is that they are Android devices. It will not work if they are iOS/Apple devices.
Excited to hear about the new org unit management and MFL functionality! Will it include parallel OU hierarchies, and versioning (to account for changes over time)?
Bram: Multiple org unit hierarchies and
New Data entry app: great to see the new design. What about custom forms? Will scripting be supported?
Rod: Yes custom forms will still be supported in new data entry app, we know that is important.
From Maria G:
Will we be able to tag users in comments in the data entry app? This would be extremely helpful for data cleaning/ follow-up
Maria: Tagging users in data entry comments is a good idea, noted!
Nice to see the MFL is it complaint to interoperability standards?
Elmarie: We already support the mCSD standard through an adapter. We are happy to look into other standards.
Are custom forms going to be supported by DHIS2 android?
Ahmad: Custom forms in android: No, at least not for now (short/mid term). Custom forms can bring many issues related to display data entry screens in android.
Is there any best practice advice or reference docs for people who design/develop their own metadata packages (like yours truly)?
any plan for versioning in Orgunits? plus what about more information like if it is functional and other attributes
Is there anything in the roadmap to add a dataset and program assignment user authority? The editing and assigning of datasets and programs need to be detached. At least people should be able to do it outside the datasets and programs. Like when creating/editing org units.
