Case importer for new registrations

Hi All,

Is it possible to use the import cases from excel to upload data from an
external system to a Commcare App for new client/patient registration?
By specifying the owner names and ID, will the assigned workers see these
patients on the mobile?
All that is to avoid users from registering patients/clients manually.
Thank you for your support.

CommCare does indeed have this capability. You may refer to our
documentation on the feature:
https://wiki.commcarehq.org/display/commcarepublic/Importing+Cases+Using+Excel

This email list is for developers working on the CommCare platform or
hosting their own CommCare servers. Questions about using CommCare are
better addressed to the commcare-users group

HI Developers,
I am having issue with importing cases into my app. I followed the steps per the user help guide but I don’t see them in the app. Not sure what I did wrong. I must be missing a step. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Hi Maira,

First off, I wanted to flag that the “Developers” section of the forum is
directed towards people running custom implementations of the CommCare
mobile software code, or self-hosting/developing for the CommCareHQ Django
codebase. You are likely to receive swifter and more helpful advice on the
standard community list, and I’d recommend that you send any followup
questions to that list.

Now,

If you see your import listed in the history at

Data -> Import Cases From Excel

It’s likely that the cases are imported, but not assigned to your mobile
users.

It may be helpful to look for your imported cases in

Reports -> Case List

to see who the Owner of the cases is, which should give you a starting
point to understand what’s going on.
