Add option to clear URL in login screen

In the previous version the user could easily clear the username or password, but not the URL. A button to clear the text from the URL text box has been added to facilitate the login process.

Improve error information to the user
Improve error information to the user

In this version the app renders the name of the data elements or attributes which fail in the synchronization process and replace it in the error message by the name of the data element or the attribute. In addition, the app displays an error message also inside the data entry form, next to the affected field. This helps the user identify the source of error and fix the problem.

Improve feedback when form rendering is slow
A loading bar has been added in the data entry forms when form or section are loading and when programs rules are executed.

User Experience and User Interface
New Event Cards in Event and Tracker programs
New Event Cards in Event and Tracker programs

The event and TEI cards have been improved and made more intuitive and informative in the last version. We have harmonised our user interface and brought this design to the lists of events in event programs and in the TEI dashboard. The cards display the name of the attribute or data element next to the value for the first three marked to be displayed. It is also possible to expand the card to display the rest of the attributes or data elements, which are shown following the same format.

New Fields for Data Entry form
