Re: Program rule actions of type ASSIGN not working on SCHEDULED events



Any feedback on this issue so far? In case it is of any help, I noticed the
following. When updating one dataelement in an event that was directly
added (sign + in the user interface of the Tracker Capture) the payload
generated was:


On the contrary, when updating the same dataelement in an event filled out
after being scheduled (first scheduled, then assigned a date and filled
out), the resulting payload was:


It seems that the flag/property status is not updated to ACTIVE once the
previous scheduled event is filled out and maybe this might be the cause of
not executing programRuleActions (if there is some conditional code
checking the *status*).

This would be a very good improvement to us, since our programs contain
many ASSIGN programRuleActions and not being able to schedule events
prevents us from using standard functionalities such as Upcoming Events and
Overdue Events.

Many thanks in advance!
