Announcing the release of the CHT-Core Framework v3.13.0

We’re excited to announce the release of 3.13.0 of cht-core

New features include:

Collect form data from external Android apps

The CHT now supports forms that collect data from generic 3rd-party Android apps. Users can launch the apps from the form and then the output from the app is captured by the CHT and stored with the report. See the CHT documentation for more information on how to use this feature.

An example use case for this functionality is the CHT reference application for COVID-19 point-of-care testing with Rapid Diagnostic Tests (RDT). This app provisions and captures the RDT data by integrating with Dimagi’s RD-Toolkit app that guides health workers through the use of the RDT.

Configuration for Task Due Date Display

By default, an overdue task is simply displayed as “Due today”. This enhancement adds configuration to allow for displaying the number of days passed since the task’s due date. This configuration is modified by setting the task_days_overdue value as described in the documentation.

Household Tasks Landing Page

When a user with the can_view_tasks_group permission has completed a task for a particular household and there are additional uncompleted tasks for that household, a landing page is shown with a list of the remaining tasks. This allows the user to easily access all uncompleted tasks for the current household.


We’ve also implemented loads of other improvements and fixed a heap of bugs. Read the release notes for full details.

Projects should start planning to upgrade in the near future. For more details read our software support documentation: Supported Versions | Community Health Toolkit
