Setting up the obsDateTime as the dateTime filled in Forms


This page has been Archived, and is obsolete. It is available on the Bahmni wiki only for reference and historical purposes.

Instead of deleting a page, we prefer to "archive" it, so that it is still available to people who have bookmarked the page.


Example :

In the above template 'Serious Adverse Events' there are multiple forms

SAE description from SAE form

Related tests (data from PV unit summary)

SAE outcome ( from PV unit summary)

TB drug treatment (data from PV unit summary)

Other causal factors (data from PV unit summary)

In some scenarios the date entered in the forms (ex:-  Date Of SAE Report ) should be used as the obsDate time for all the forms in that template.

In such cases there is a groovy script to handle that :

Currently the encounter-date is taken as the  default obsDate for all the forms.


To override this we have to add the following line :


to the BahmniObsValueCalculator.groovy file :


The template name is the first entry ( Ex: "Serious Adverse Events Template" is the fully specified name for "Serious Adverse Events")

The dateField to be overridden is the second entry (Ex: "SAE Form, Date of SAE report" as fully specified name for "Date of SAE Report")
