Store number of forms as a case field

Hi everyone,

We have a “patient consultation” form where the case informations are
displayed after selecting a patient. In this case summary we’d like to
show the number of time this “patient consultation” form has been filled
for a given patient.

What could be the best way to achieve that ?

Many thanks,

Hi Charles,

The easiest way to implement this is with a single case property that gets
incremented by 1 each time the form is filled in. Let us know if you need
more guidance than that.

Actually yes. Is there some doc in the wiki to implement such an
incrementation ?

Many thanks,

So basically you would have a add a few hidden values to the form. One
could be last_form_count and the other could be next_form_count.
last_form_count would load a case property called “form_count”.
next_form_count would have a calculate expression that was equal to
last_form_count + 1, and would update the “form_count” case property. The
end result will be that the case property gets incremented by one each
time. You may also have to add logic so that “last_form_count” gets a
proper default value of 0 the first time.

Am hoping others on this list who are more experienced app builders can
fill in the details if you need more than that. I’d also encourage you to
check out the common logic expressions wiki page:

Hello Charles,

Cory provided the relevant information, but here it is organized a little
differently on the CommCare Help Site:
