The project is improving usability in the Tracker Capture app for DHIS2. The application is used for filling in measurements on patients for each state of their programme. Currently it only shows the measurements to be filled in with new values. Our task is improving on this, by showing an additional column which shows measurements from earlier inputs.

Base requirement is visually show previous recorded data in the Tracker Capture App. They app as it is now, is a straight single column for filling in data about the patient. What we want to to is add another column for showing previously recorded data.The measurements needs to be filled in each time a paitient is in, and therefore we want to show the data from the session directly preceding the one in use.


The architecture of the project will be based on the already existing Tracker Capture App.

The same goes for the technology used, in addition to DHIS2 these technologies have been and will be used:

  • Maven
  • Spring
  • Hibernate
  • JavaScript
  • Ajax
  • JSON
  • Angular
  • HTML5
  • CSS3

Project workflow

Setup DHIS2

  • Download and setup DHIS2 and create a project for our IDE
  • Setup a github repo with the code

Discuss implementation and design

  • Discuss as a group how we want the new column to look like.
  • Discuss as a group how we want to implement


  • Create the second column
  • Get the second column to contain previous data
  • Make a copy button for copying previous data into the data to be set.
