*Hi all,DHIS version 2.29 is out with many new features, apps and
improvements.Login with admin/district on the demo
<http://play.dhis2.org/2.29/> system to try it out.ANALYTICS
FEATURES---Dashboard app: A new dashboard app is now available which lets
you arrange the dashboard items in a completely flexible way. It features
better dashboard search, allows you to create shortcuts by marking
dashboards as favorites, switch between visualization types such as pivot,
chart and map and insert free-text items. Dashboards can be shared,
translated and filtered.Screenshot 1

<https://docs.dhis2.org/2.29/en/user/html/dashboard.html>Maps app: A new
maps app (previously GIS) is available, offering a new, intuitive and
user-friendly interface for creating map layers. It lets you arrange the
order of map layers in a simple way, and view the map data in a data table.
Any number of map layers can be added to a map, even layers of the same
type. The contents and order of map layers can be viewed in the left side
menu.Screenshot 1

<https://docs.dhis2.org/2.29/en/user/html/using_maps.html>Last value
aggregation type: A new “last value” aggregation type is available for
aggregate and event analytics for data elements and attributes. This
aggregation type will use the last available value or event in the time
dimension, and either sum or average across other dimensions. This is
useful e.g. for facility surveys to analyse data based on the last
observation, or for “patients currently on care” type of
| Demo <https://play.dhis2.org/2.29/dhis-web-pivot/#>Pivot table
scalability: The pivot table rendering engine is now around 10x more
scalable, and allows for very large pivot tables to be viewed in the web
browser. This is accomplished through progressive rendering, i.e. the
browser will only render what you currently see and not load the entire
pivot table into the browser memory.Demo
<https://play.dhis2.org/2.29/dhis-web-pivot/?id=mkNlpJL3RMT>Event reports
table layout download: You can now download event reports in Excel or CSV
format in the same tabular format which was rendered in the web
financial year in analytics: The starting month of the financial year to
use in all analytics apps can now be configured in the settings app.
Available options are April, July and October.Screenshot

FEATURES---Data capture and data view sharing levels: The sharing solution
has been extended with two new levels for “data capture” and “data view”
access for users and user groups. These levels apply to programs, program
stages, data sets and category options, and replaces the link between user
roles and data sets/programs. This offers a simplified and more flexible
access control solution.Screenshot
| Docs <https://docs.dhis2.org/2.29/en/user/html/sharing.html>Tracker
programs in maintenance app: You can now create and modify tracker programs
in the maintenance app. The workflow for creating programs have been made
more intuitive and effective, where stages, sections, data entry forms and
notifications can be created from within the main page.Demo
search and registration: The steps for searching and registering new
tracked entities are now integrated. When registering a new tracked entity
instance, the registration form will automatically search for possible
duplicates and alert the user in case of suspected duplicates. When a
search comes back with no hits, the searched values are carried over to the
registration form. Screenshot
| Docs
configurability and security in searches: Search authorization can now be
granted to users at any location in the org unit structure, while also
allowing for configuration that restricts the information returned in the
search results per tracked entity instance. The max number of searchresults
can also be restricted, to avoid general searches returning long lists of
tracked entity instances.Screenshot
| Docs
<https://docs.dhis2.org/2.29/en/user/html/configure_search.html>Sending of
messages based on program rules: You can now create program rules which
trigger messages to be sent to designated recipients (through SMS, email or
DHIS 2 messages) from a notification template. Messages are triggered when
data is received by the DHIS 2 API based on events or tracked entity
instances. This is useful e.g. for disease surveillance, where certain
conditions would trigger an immediate message to a case investigator to
follow up a notifiable case.Demo
| Docs
based on functional patterns: Unique IDs can now be generated based on a
configured pattern. The patterns can contain various components such as org
unit code, year and sequential numbers.Demo

indicator custom date boundaries: Program indicators can now query data
relative to the reporting period. In the program indicator user interface
there are now options for customizing what data is used in the evaluation
of the program indicator. As an example, an indicator could evaluate all
events up to the end of the reporting period, or evaluate events from
enrollments which happened in an earlier period relative to the aggregation
period. This is useful e.g. for cohort analysis and for creating
moving-average or cumulative program indicators.Screenshot

forms when entering tracker data: Individual program stages can be
configured to display previous events side-by-side with the current event
for ease of comparison.Screenshot
| Docs
information in top menu for tracked entities: You can now configure a fixed
information bar containing key attributes or calculated values for
individual tracked entities. The information bar will always be visible at
the top of the screen while capturing data for a single tracked
entity.Screenshot 1

type attributes: Images can now be stored as tracked entity attributes and
be displayed in lists and the profile widget in tracker capture. When the
image value type is used for a data element, the image will be visible in
data entry forms.Screenshot

for tracked entity types: Tracked entity types can now have attributes.
This allows e.g. for searching for attributes across multiple programs
which share the same tracked entity type.Demo

FEATURES---Job scheduler: A new solution for scheduling of background jobs
is now available. With the new scheduling system you can configure exactly
when and how often a job should run, job-specific parameters for how the
job should be performed and more. Multiple background jobs of the same type
can now run simultaneously and provide notifications

message tickets: Similar to ticket/feedback messages, validation messages
now have access to status, priority and user assignment. The messages will
inherit the priority based on the importance of the validation result.Demo

<https://docs.dhis2.org/2.29/en/user/html/messages.html>In-app authorities:
Apps can now contain app-specific authorities which can be assigned to user
roles in the same way you assign regular authorities. Apps can use these
authorities to grant or restrict access to functionality.Docs
only when compulsory fields filled: A new option is available for data sets
which only allows users to complete a data set in aggregate data entry if
all compulsory fields have been filled. Demo
FEATURES---Analytics table SQL hooks: This API lets you hook into the
resource table and analytics table generation process using custom SQL
scripts. These scripts can manipulate the content of the mentioned tables,
such as adding, updating and removing rows, to cater for special analytics
audit: A new API for auditing of metadata is now available. All creation,
edits and deletion of metadata objects are now audited, and the audi trail
information includes which properties were changed, at what time and by
which user.Docs
metadata search: Using the metadata endpoints, you can now filter (search)
for objects using tokens (individual words) across the name, UID, code and
short name properties.Docs
