Re: [Dhis2-users] Using form name in Dashboard/Pivot/Visualizer


Hi Nayeem,

that is not possible per now, and we are not planning to change this. The
reason is that the form name is intended for use only within forms, whereas
we encourage the use of clear and self-descriptive names/short names for
use in output apps.

best regards,
