Partially Saved Cases

Post by munirmdee1 » October 1st, 2019, 2:03 am

Hi All,

I have a concern here, I developed data capture application for android, and its working fine, cases are being synchronized with the server perfectly no problem. But whenever I download the data, it gives me a report after download finishes, it gives total number of cases downloaded, and number of partially saved cases and its percentage.

Now I want to deal with the partially saved cases, how do I identify them? Is there a way I can only see them only? Because I want to check why they are partially saved not completed and ask enumerators to check up on them and resend them again.

Thanks in advance.

If it is a CSDB file open it in Data Viewer and the partial saves will appear with a red plus sign:

Additionally, under View you can select Show Partial Cases Only.

Thank you Aaronw,

Actually I know all that, when the case arrive and it was partially saved, it shows a red cross, or in android it shows a red color mark. Maybe the one in DataView, I never tried it. But my point was, Enumerators in the field they send data to the server, I need to Identify them and tell them to cross check, that was my point, but since I can do it with dataview as you explained its fine now, I can view only partially saved one and note down while comunicating with them.

So thank you, problem solved.

I see. In our example project CAPI Census (installed with CSPro) we use dynamic value sets to prominently display the partially saved cases. This way the enumerator won't forget about them.
