Understanding "active cases" in my automatic activity report

Hi all – I have an automated activity report that provides a weekly
summary of the number of forms, cases, etc. handled by each mobile worker.

I am realizing that I am not fully clear on the item in that report called
“# Active Cases.”

If you see the attached screenshot, take a look at the entry that I circled.

This worker filled out 13 forms. But when I see # of active cases, 14 of
them were active. I’m trying to understand how they could have 'touched" 14
cases while only filling out 13 forms. Since a form can at most involve one
case. Any thoughts? Thanks! --Eric

Hi Eric,

I’m not sure how your app is set up but one way I think this could happen
is if you are using child cases. In forms that open a child case one form
can touch two cases at the same time. If that is the case then you can
adjust the report filters to show only one case type.
