Previous Action Items


Clearing browser cache is required for certain actions

Potential fix could be adding a button to clear the cache, but this seem more like a bandaid rather than a real cache. A better solution should be transparent to the users, if possible.

Jira Ticket:

Switch from Discourse

Objections to moving to something else?

  • Dominika - No objections, especially if we aren’t using the current service too much

  • Ben - No objections

  • Akinsola - Have not used the current Discourse instance

What other services should we look at?


Interest in GS1 (GTIN) for Product Tracking

Will track this alongside development on the OpenLMIS mobile app. We will need more detail on the specific use-cases and workflows



Upcoming Discussion Points

Addition of Temperature to SM intake/adjustment pages

Vaccine landscape review (per Moses’s comments)

  • Akinsola is interesting in sharing/presenting the Nigeria vaccine implementation details - Will be complete and ready to share in Sept/Oct

Additional Admin Screens (Dominika)

Upgrade Superset Version

Discuss How OpenLMIS can better track Lab commodities
