Re: [Dhis2-devs] Skip-logic on Events with Option Codes - can't seem to get it to work...


Here are the specifics of the skip logic to see if anyone can spot if I've
made a mistake.

The CE-Discharge variable represents a discharge method data element that
is an option-set with 4 values.

Absconded, MODDIS_ABSC
Transferred, MODDIS_TRANS
Discharged, MODDIS_DISCH

simple rule is #{CE-Discharge} != 'MODDIS_TRANS' then hide some extra
transfer detailed they want to capture.

there is another similar rule but for the MODDIS_DIED option.

Let me know if I am missing something.
