Re: Advice needed: Prevent UID edits in new Tracker Capture App v0.5.1


Hello Aimee,

I have created a jira issue <https://jira.dhis2.org/browse/ACA-303> for the
UID's becoming editable.

For the other problem, please report to jira as there are no enough details
in our email.

Remember to select
Project: Maintenance of Current Android Apps
Component: Tracker Capture
