Can I Report Data at a Different Geographic Level than What's Assigned?

Situation: Say your activity's indicator is defined with a district reporting level. This means that you must enter indicator results per district for one or more districts. Those districts must be assigned to the activity

Question: Can you add a national total instead of reporting per district? 

Answer: No. 

Explanation: All indicators are defined with a single reporting level. You would need to either re-define your existing indicator to be reported nationally (which would apply to all activities that report on this indicator), or create a new indicator that is reported nationally. If you need two copies of an indicator to allow for two different reporting levels, you could get a total of the two by using a third formula indicator, where

  • Ind1_Total = [Ind1_District]+[Ind1_National]
