Using SMS Commands for data capture


Hi there,

We're considering using the SMS Commands functionality of DHIS2 to receive
data from the data capture Android App when there is no internet

I'm working from the documentation here:

Unfortunately it still leaves a few questions:

- How do you specify the OrgUnit and Period? Does the discussion from this
thread still apply? (https://lists.launchpad.net/dhis2-users/msg06122.html)
If so - how does the parser differentiate when you specify BOTH OrgUnit and
Period? Where does one assign codes to the OrgUnits?

- What happens when a message is longer than one SMS message?

It'd be great to see these answers in the documentation itself.
