Hi all,




DHIS version 2.29 is out with many new features, apps and improvements.


Login with admin/district on the demo 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.

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.

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 analysis.

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



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 
browser.

Configurable 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.

TRACKER 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



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



Integrated 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



Improved 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



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



ID-generation 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 | Tutorial | Docs



Program 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 | Docs



Compare 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



Fixed 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 | 2



Image 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.

Attributes 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 | Docs




GENERAL 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 independently.


Screenshot | Demo | Docs user guide | Docs API



Validation 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 | Docs



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



Complete 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




API 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 requirements.


Docs



Metadata 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



Multi-property 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.
