You would need to create a parent group under inputs > contact. In there you can specify the fields that you need.

caveat: if the user at health center level is restricted to their place, you wouldn’t have access to the full district form as that won’t be replicated to the device. In this case, you would only have access to the _id.

A workaround to this would be storing the attributes in the user-settings document (or user document if this doesn’t work) and those can be accessed by creating an inputs > user group in the form and specifying the attributes you need.

Do reach out if the above does not unblock you.

Thanks Derick. I already tried “You would need to create a parent group under inputs > contact. In there you can specify the fields that you need.” this option and it didn’t worked.

will try by updating user_settings.
