Data exports need finer specification

Registered by jason.p.pickering on 2010-05-28

DHIS 1.4 allows for users to specify in a greater level of detail what data will get exported during an export process. Currently, DHIS2 only allows the export of a given dataset. However, in many situations, a user would want to export specific data element groups, data elements, or data from specific orgunit groups. See the DHIS 1.4 Export specification for detailed specification.

Also, it is not apparent what "Organization unit with children" really means. Does this mean direct children or all children, and does it include the organization unit itself? It would be clearer if the user was allowed to select organization units similar to when they assign orgunits to a dataset. For instance "Select all at district" combined with "Organization unit with children" would export all facility level data. Otherwise, they could select "Organization unit only" combined with "Select all at facility level".
