Fiscal quarters crossing calendar years


Hi all,

We have a unique requirement here in Ethiopia. We have 13 months with the
first 12 having 30 days each and the 13th one having 5 or 6 depending on
leap year. Since data about the 13th month is moved to the first month of
the next year (even when collected manually), we did not face any problems
regarding that.

But we are facing a challenge in defining quarters. The fiscal year of
Ethiopia starts in month 11 of the last year, effectively making quarter I
happen in two different years. However, DHIS2 does not handle such quarters.

Have any of you faced these kind of challenges in other implementations in
other countries? If so, how did you handle it?

Your comments and suggestions are appreciated.
