Change an Indicator's Name, Code, or Status

To edit the wording of an indicator or the code used to identify it, go to Results > Indicators.


This will open the Indicators Index. Click on the indicator you'd like to edit.


On the indicator's Definition tab, find the Reference section.

You can click on the Name or Code field to make edits. This will not change or delete any data associated with the indicator, so make sure that any new wording for an indicator still describes all data for that indicator. If you need to change an indicator code but want to store the old code for reference, you could list the old code under "Reference #". All changes are saved automatically.

To make an indicator inactive without deleting any data reported for that indicator, unclick the Indicator is active checkbox. This will remove the indicator from future reporting periods for each activity.

An inactive indicator will never appear in a user's data entry view for a reporting period unless it's a previous reporting period for which the indicator was active and data was already entered for it. If reported data for an inactive indicator needs to be modified, first re-activate the indicator by checking the Indicator is active box. All data for inactive indicators can be viewed in Pito if you uncheck the hide inactive indicators filter.

If you are unable to complete this action, then you do not have permission to assign indicators to activities. Please speak to your supervisor.
