Re: Adding descriptions in Dashboards


Hi Timothy,

Yes I have used the interpretations app. I would like the text to be displayed on the dashboard and ideally for each report. I guess that I can build a Long text data element, generate a report and add to the dashboard. Descriptions of reports could be in the name itself. It would be neater if there was another way of doing that, though.

Thanks for answering my question, though!

Dear Georgi,

Have you tried using the interpretations app in DHIS2 2.26? There is an option of adding interpretations to items on the dashboards

Does anyone know of a way of adding text boxes in a dashboard explaining the graphics, and giving an introduction to the individual dashboard?

This would be really helpful!
