It is occasionally useful to display the username who generated a case in the case list.
One example is: a nurse can receive referrals from multiple community health workers (CHWs). It would be useful for this nurse to know which CHW sent a particular referral case. Here is how to display the username:
In the form that acts upon (creates or updates) the case in question, add a hidden value in the form builder. You may call this hidden value whatever is appropriate.
In the calculate condition, paste the following: /data/meta/username
Save this hidden value to your case in the case management section
You may now add this case property to your case list or case details. It will display the username for the user who submitted the form for the case.
