Q on changing assessment points

Hello, we have set up an ODK program for conducting assessments every 12
weeks, and does not allow entry of a followup assessment until 12 weeks
have passed from the prior. However, we have some cases that had to be
entered on paper and now need to be able to enter the baseline without the
requirement that 12 weeks pass before next assessment. Does anyone know
how to change that requirement --e…g, to text entry?

Thank you,
Susan

Hey Susan,

I’m assuming you have some case property like “date of last visit” that you
use to check the elapsed time in order to determine whether or not a case
can enter the next visit form. If so, one possibility would have a
"Supervisor" form that allows you to edit this date into the past for
selected cases. You could make this form visible to only some users
through custom
user data
https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/Custom+User+Data?src=search.
Alternatively, you could look into using the case importer
https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/Importing+Cases+Using+Excel?src=search
to
add these cases, enabling you to set the last visit date directly.

Best,
Will
