Cases and having to go to the "start" screen each time

Hi,

I have created a nutrition/deworming app. I am using cases to track
children, but through the child’s mother (the children are the
beneficiaries of deworming but we want to track the mothers). Currently
there are 3 modules:

  1. Registration Mother
  2. Registration Child
  3. Deworming

The above system was recommended by Dimagi for my needs, as we need to link
mothers to children to child deworming data. But after testing, I see that
each time a module is done, we have to go back to the “Start” screen. This
is misleading because the mobile user has to go to the start screen 3 times
in order to complete a full cycle of deworming a child. Is there any way
around this? Is this the only way cases can be treated? It would nice if
for each cycle of the above mentioned three steps, one only sees the start
screen once.

Thanks,
Nyka

Hi Nyka,

Take a look at End of Form Navigation
https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/End+of+Form+Navigation.
I’m not sure if you have multiple forms in each module, but it sounds like
what you want is to set the “last” form in each module (assuming they are
filled out in a particular order, so that filling out the last form
indicates “a module is done”) to take you to the Module Menu rather than
the Home Screen.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,
Kriti
