Open referral on commcare

Hi Amelia,
See last email from you below, I want to implement the functionality to
calculate visit number.
Is it possible to do this right from the form editor? Or need to be done
manually?
Thanks.

Hi Peter,

This email is followup from our call about the cyclical dependency in
visit_count. When you have a preload binding, the piece of data is loaded
for all lines thereafter. You cannot refer to the piece of data in the
same preload binding.

For example, in your application you had something like:

You are preloading visit_number, and at the same time have a calculate with
visit_number. You must do the calculate later in the form.

Makes sense?

Hi Amelia,
4 pm EAT works for me, my skype name is ‘plubambi’.

I edit my forms manualy, but i have ever tried to edit my hand authored
form with old form designer the same problem happened.

About the binds on visit_number and date_of_birth, i have noticed because
the visit_number was intended to increment with every visit now it is not
working. We can discuss this in our call later.

Also, the automatic referral works for child module. If you can also add
this for mother, please go ahead!

Thanks

Peter.

Hi Peter,

You can track which # visit this is using data nodes and a case property.
You will use the data nodes to add 1 to the case property visit_number
every time the user fills out the form.

You’ll need 1 case property to track this (e.g. visit_number)
You’ll need 2 data nodes in the form (e.g. /data/prev_visit_number and
/data/cur_visit_number).

  1. Load the case property visit_number into the data node
    /data/prev_visit_number
  2. Write a calculate in /data/cur_visit_number to calculate
    /data/prev_visit_number+1, or 1 if /data/prev_visit_number is null: e.g.
    if(/data/prev_visit_number = ‘’, 1, /data/prev_visit_number+1)
  3. Update the case property visit_number with /data/cur_visit_number.

Hope this helps!

Thanks,
Amelia

Hi Amelia,
This was easy to follow.
When I display the cur_visit_number I keep on on getting 1 even on second
visit
Am I missing any step here?

See my comments in line.

You will use the data nodes to add 1 to the case property visit_number

Nodes on follow up form
<post_visit />

Hi Peter,

I don’t think you need post_visit_number.

You need to save /data/cur_visit_number to the case, using the same case
property name that you load into the form into /data/prev_visit_number.

So if you keep everything the same, except update the case with
/data/cur_visit_number to the case property post_visit, it should work.
