How are Activities Linked to Data Tables?


When a data table is 'linked' to an activity, it appears in the data table dropdown menu for an activity's reporting period. This allows the activity to report information in the table.

Data Structure

  • Data tables are explicitly linked to indicators;
  • Indicators are explicitly linked to activities;
  • Thus, data tables are implicitly linked to activities.

Data tables become linked to activities when

  1. The activity is listed in the "activity" column of the table or
  2. The data table is linked to an indicator that is linked to the activity or
  3. The data table has an activity column but is not linked to any indicators

Note: While any of the three conditions above will link a data table to an activity, in order for a data table indicator to populate data for a given activity, the activity must be explicitly linked to the indicator as well.
