New Forms Fields: Geography

 

Improvement

 

 

The DevResults Forms tool lets you auto-populate documents with your program information from DevResults. For example, with the placeholder [[Activity_Name]] in a Forms template, you can download a document for any activity with the correct name filled out for you.

Today we added a few additional placeholders to let you pull an activity's geographic information into a downloaded document. Those placeholders are:

  • [[Activity_GeoLevel1]]
  • [[Activity_GeoLevel2]]
  • [[Activity_GeoLevel3]]
  • [[Activity_GeoLevel4]]
  • [[Activity_Locations]]

Because different places have different names for their administrative division levels, we refer to them by number. For this site, Level 1 would be Region and Level 2 would be Prefecture. (Level 0 would be Guinea, which would be the same for all activities so a placeholder is not needed.)

The placeholder [[Activity_GeoLevel1]] in a template for this site would be auto-populated with a list of the regions assigned to this activity, separated by commas (i.e. Boké, Conakry, Kankan, Kindia, Labé). These are shown in an activity's geography tab.
