Re: [Dhis2-users] Discrepancy in weekly vs monthly reporting period


Dear Prosper,

Thanks for your kind reply. Entering data on daily basis for our context is
not feasible therefore we have to enter/import data into DHIS2 on weekly

Since weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc. as period have been provided by
DHIS2 database, don't you think they all should be align with each other
while extracting the data? In addition, I was wondering if DHIS2 developers
are aware of this issue?

Many thanks,
