Store case_id as hidden value

I want to simplify my relational joins. Is it possible to store a record’s
case_id as a hidden value? - Rob

Hey Rob,

I think that the Case ID for the chosen case should automatically be
provided in data exports (and can be found if you download a form via our
API) - is there something else you’re trying to access?

Thanks,
Sheel

Yes I’m trying to load the parent case_id into the child table so I don’t
have to download a separate lookup table to join the two. Maybe I’m missing
something basic - Rob

Hi Rob,

How are you using lookup tables in this scenario? From the conversation so
far it sounds like you are working with data exports with the form data
that you’ve entered so far. If you are using lookup tables for this
configuration, please let us know some details about your setup so that we
might be able to advise you further.

Thanks,

Hey,

I think Rob is referring to using Excel based lookups to match the list of
cases in one sheet to the other exported sheet which lists cases + their
parent case IDs.

Rob, can you file a UV ticket about having the parent_case_id directly
available in any case data exports? Unfortunately, I don’t think there’s an
easy way to do what you want to achieve for now, but we can certainly try
to improve this workflow.

Thanks,
Sheel

Nate and Sheel thanks - Sheel yes that is what I am wanting to do. I will
try the UV ticket though its not urgent. I was also wondering if case_id is
only created after the record is uploaded to the server. Rob

Case ID is set by the phone so should be available as soon as the case is
created.
